Over several years the quality of service and meals has been excellent. Great tacos arrachera and "vampiro arrachera" and meat cooked in different ways.

A wonderful local restaurant with typical grilled meat and good chili rellenos. Friendly staff and mariachi singers passing through. Pass on the tortilla soup.
