We walked from our hotel on what must have been the coldest day of the year and most if not all restaurants were booked. The food and service were excellent. A very friendly staff. I'll return.

This restaurant is in walking distance of our house. Nothing fancy. Basic, good food. Nice wait staff. And rational prices. It is nice to get away from some of the food snobbery and eat here now and then.

Love this tucked away and off the beaten path Mexican restaurant! It is only two blocks from Plaza but you kind of have to know where it is - mostly locals some and indulge here. Everything good, but the “Bomb” is really to die for!...More

Hello! We have been told we make an outstanding Mole. We make Mole Poblano and serve it with turkey but you could sub it out for chicken if that is your preference.
