It's hot, noisy, and crowded...ie. not a relaxed atmosphere for a meal. But the food is pretty good, portions are generous, and you'll have plenty of options.

We visit this place at least once a week. Love the food here. The menu is very well set. The food is always fresh and they do run out of things if we come in late say around 9PM :) The salsas (yes there are multiple choices) are really awesome. I would highly recommend this place if you want taqueria kind of food.

Beautifully prepared and served Mexican dishes. Nicely adapted for non-Mexican diners but authentic enough to be popular with Central American taste as well. Servers are well trained, and the line for ordering moves along smoothly. We've never been there when there wasn't a nicely filled dining area with all sorts of ethnic-background diners having as swell time. Try it out. You'll thank me.

Not fancy, but great menu. Lot's of wonderful choices and very fresh food. Service is quick and the portions are more than ample for the great prices. You watch prepare everything and can have it all made the way you like it.
