This restaurant has many locations. You can check the maps on their website for the most convenient one. Some locations have valet parking and most have outdoor seating and playgrounds. My favorite meals is to order one taco de sirloin with an extra corn tortilla

The food at the restaurant was excellent. Everything that was ordered was well prepared. Only issue we had is I got my food first and the rest did not get their food for well over 10 minutes later. Our waitress was not very attentive and the restaurant was not very crowded. All in all, I would return to the restaurant... More

This is a great steakhouse with several locations in Xalapa. The beef is better then you are use to in the US or Canada. It is so tender that it melts like butter in your mouth! Add to this all the traditional sides common to Mexico and you will have a great eating experience.

Good Mexican food. I tried the Chalupas, which is a dish from Puebla, and were pretty good. The tacos de arrachera are also great. Breakfasts are rich, very.

Excellent place to eat if you're looking for a little more up-scale than the 100's of taco joints. Can't go wrong with one of their mixed meat grilled items.. They include BBQ'd chicken, pork loin, beef short-ribs, sausage, onions and grilled cheese etc.. Excellent tortillas, black bean, various kinds of hot sauces, and guacamole!! P.S. I think at present they... More

We were there cause of the great rating and had some grilled stuff. Well, the vegetables were really good, but the streak was like leather, the ribs full of fat and the sausage never ever was a chorizo. At least it was quite loud, so we could not really understand each other. One thing... The service was very polite!

The staff is energetic and enthusiastic. Our waitress suggested two dishes which we thoroughly enjoyed. One was a grilled marinated skirt steak which we had medium rare (Término Azul, she called it) and the other was the grilled octopus. She served them on a small grill which she placed in the middle of the table. Accompanying this was rice, guacamole,... More
