Great cheap eats! Real mexican home-made, and a bit of the random available too - like burgers :) I particularly enjoy the breakfast burrito at any time of day. Great spicy salsas. No frills. Real food. Small area for seating.

I've been to this place four or five times and it never disappoints. Authentic. It's definitely not a place for ambience or elegance, but the food is freshly prepared and there's a salsa bar with some interesting condiments.

The menu is simple, the usual tacos, burritos, tortas, and more (try the potato taquitos or the sopes, both excellent; the menudo is as well). Cheap, filling, flavorful, and friendly - what I look for in a Mexican hole in the wall.

Instead the atmosphere was nicer than the outside suggests, prices were great, plates were used, service was both great and friendly, and the food was better than we had expected. I wish we passed this way more often... More
