The location for this place has moved down the street, so when you see the original building, keep walking down Calle 5 and you won't miss it. Their tacos are out of this world delicious! I had the Luciano. It's grilled beef, cheese, pablano pepper, and onions. Not spicy just delicious! Wish they were in my hometown. And yes they're a bit expensive but worth it!

The food was awesome but the margaritas were $12 each. Prices were not posted and we learned an expensive lesson!

Such great food and the margaritas are yum. Great for families as well as adults out on the town. Casual and inexpensive.

Sounds odd, but after a couple weeks in Mexico I need variety, and the "aligator" diner here reminded me (in a good way) of the cheese steaks I grew up with. Everything we tried was very good, and the new location (last month) is pleasant for this small family spot. My friends have been several times, and I know I will return.

The new location is great. The food is fantastic. Definitely a must when I'm on the island. I would recommend this to anyone looking to experience a true local meal workout the tourist trap feel.
