This is an amazing cantina. Neighbourhood is a little sketchy but they have a guarded parking lot. Nothing fancy but how can you complain with three dollar margaritas and beers. Unlimited chips and salsa continue until your food arrives. The salsa is delicious. The mains...More

A very scary neighborhood and the inside is tired and dark. Service is super quick and friendly; looks like a popular place with locals. Huge, I mean huge portions. Food is ok, but a bit heavy on the fried and fatty.
