“Very good Mexican restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

We've had lunch here a couple of times when visiting relatives who live in Oak Cliff. Last time we had a toddler along. The restaurant has a large area somewhat separate from the main dining area which they let us take over so the little one could make all the noise she wanted. The food is very good with mostly interior Mexico dishes and some "Veratex" choices. Nice decor, friendly staff and reasonable prices.

“Try the Fish Tacos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

There is nothing subtle about the decor of this cool little restaurant but there is a great deal of subtlety in the food.

The crowd is eclectic and obviously happy to have discovered this little restaurant on the back side of the Bishop Arts District.

The Chicken Pipian is well above average and the fish tacos are better than that.

Top it all off with a fresh squeezed lemonade or adult beverage of your choice.
