We came here to try authentic Mexican cuisine. The pickled vegetables are excellent as some have pointed out. The corn chips and salsa were also decent. The Horchuga was very tasty. I had a combo plate with Chile Relleno, chicken enchilada, chicken tostada and steak strips. My wife had the tacos with steak. All in all it was ok. Some... More

Have eaten here many times. We used to really like it. Just a small Mexican place. Nice friendly people. The last two times we were disappointed. May not go back.

I visited this restaurant while I was in Mexico for two weeks and really enjoyed it. I had the combo platter to share and it was delicious. It consisted of arrachera, chili relleno, Taco, burritos, rice, beans and guacamole with a side of the house made pickled vegetables (one of the best I've had in México over the two weeks!)....

Beer only 20 pesos; soda 15 pesos. This place has been in business through thick and thin ... for the past 56 years. The owner/manager speaks English well and will tell... More

We had an appetizer of guacamole and the house spicy vegetables that were amazing! So much so that we replicated them upon our return home and they are so yummy!. For our entrees we had the Pollo enchiladas Gratin that were extremely delicious! and the pork in a red chilie sauce that was equally tasty. It's well worth giving La... More

I probably should just copy and paste my past reviews. One of my favorite stops in Acapulco. Simple, well prepared food. As usual the Tortuga salad, chicken enchiladas in yummy poblano sauce and of course the Mexican pizza and the veggies on the table round out a good inexpensive meal. A small clean restaurant off the Costera up the street... More

This restaurant is a simple down to earth establishment that has been around many years. I find it very consistent every time we visit. While we have ordered the same dishes time and again why mess with a good thing. The pickled vegetables that they start you out with are delicious and have a nice kick to them. The Mexican... More
