Really enjoyed this place after a long flight to LA. Reminds me why I love excellent authentic food and coming back to LA. The fresh salsa, rice, and pinto beans were awesome. So many places just screw up the basics but they nail it here....More

We found this little hole in the wall and had no regrets! The service was nice, food was tasty and the prices were competitive. We all enjoyed our food and wished we lived closer so we could visit again!

This is a great place to eat if you are looking for really authentic Mexican food. The burritos and enchiladas are excellent. Tacos also very good. Even the salsa rocks.

Very friendly and attentive staff, the restaurant was clean. We ordered a shredded beef burrito and a campechana - both delicious!

Phone number 310-679-5161. Owners are Rodolfo Garcia and Juan Manuel Garcia. Restaurant offers excellent home-style Mexican food. Impressively friendly owners and staff. Although small, very clean and comfortable surroundings. Generous portions of everything, including the wine. Priced almost too reasonably for the level of food and service excellence. This is the kind of restaurant we will go out of our way to visit any time we are in Los Angeles.
