Servings were most impressive and my carne asada was actually done "medium rare." My companion's chicken was a full half-chicken and equally generous serving size. Everything was truly "real Mexican" and a FAR, FAR cry from Taco Bell, though one still orders at the counter, but the food is brought to your table.

Had an amazing breakfast omelet, they gave me a lot of hash brown. And I enjoyed the free Pico de gallo.

Decent Mexican food but seemed a bit pricey. Perhaps due to the location close to downtown LA. Not particularly good or bad.

We stayed close to this restaurant, checked out the reviews, and gave it a try. The food was very good. My husband and I both had the Chile rellano and guacamole. The atmosphere was nice and the staff was friendly. The only down side was the fast food lay out. It would have been nice to have a server.

I ordered the huevos rancheros. Top notch. I loved their condiment bar and the portion was huge. Great value for your money. We plan on returning.

Was in LA for an EXPO. Wanted some place close to the convention center. Checked this place out and it was worth it. It was fast, and the food was great. We knew we hit pay dirt when we realized this place was where all the locals go. It was packed, but we were still able to get a table,... More

If you want to beat the heavy downtown L.A. traffic and have a good Mexican meal try this place. Not too fancy. No waiting for a table. Plenty of parking next to the place. I had beef enchiladas. That was pretty good! My friends had taquitos and chile riellano with a cheese sauce. They loved everything except the cheese sauce.... More
