We stumbled across this restaurant after unsuccessfully trying to find a different, highly-recommended restaurant in the area. What a pleasant surprise! The atmosphere, food, service, drinks - all were authentic. My husband and I hadn't had Mexican food with as little Americanization incorporated since... Mexico!...More

I believe this to be the most authentic Mexican food I've ever had - not Tex Mex, but authentic Mexican. Besides the restaurant being spotless with highly clean bathrooms, the decor is richly vivacious. The waiter kindly educated me about the differences of fine Mexican...More
