“Extremely bad service”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

We found the food mediocre at best but the service was the worst we have had in Mexico. The inattentive waiters ignored us most of the time, wouldn't clear our table after we were finished and on top of that demanded a 20% tip. I strongly discourage you from eating there. There are so many better places in Mexico City.

“Good mariachis and tequila”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

It's an excellent place to listen to rancheras and drink a few tequilas. So nice. opens early. You can arrive after 8 pm and the environment is great.

I recommend it 100%

“horror”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

I still don't understand why this place is so famous and so packed all the time.
The waiters are so so so useless - they never remembers what you ordered.
Had to wait for an hour to get a beer, another hour for food which was cold and rubbery by the time it found me.
I don't recommend this place.

“Battle of the Mariachis”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

An experience and a half. Great drinks and good appetizers. The noise level was deafening with at 3 mariachi bands competing with each other.

“Great tradition but on weekends too full and loud”
Reviewed 30 March 2013

I love coming here everytime I go to Mexico - especially if I have visitors with me. But this last time the place was extremely busy and loud. I thought that the etiquette was that one Mariachi band was to play at the time. Well, this last time there were at least 3 bands playing at the same time and that made it less enjoyable. We were there on saturday night after a pay day. So probably is best to avoid these sort of nights.
