Stumble across the street to this nice place for some carne en su juga to soak up the booze. Nice atmosphere, a little noisy with up to two mariachi bands playing. Upstairs is a bit nicer environment.

Food is not bad, but overpriced due to location. I had cheese enchiladas - good, not great. Others had steaks, again good not great. Large portions. Large drinks. Friendly staff. The whole place smelled too much like cleaning solution and bleach.
