This place was busy which indicates how popular and good the food is. We got there around 10:00 and didn't have to wait very long. Menu had many items to choose from and the food was excellent.

This is a great place for breakfast with a Latin flavor, totally different from the traditional IHOP or Dennys. Just be patient because on weekends is crowded. I really enjoy this place.
