Wonderful food at reasonable prices. Alternatives to Mexican also available. We went because it was the only thing open at 7pm, but it was excellent. Friendly, helpful people, too. Quick service, given the crowd.

This place is located away from the main tourist area. It is tiny and busy with lots of locals. The food was great!

There are meat free dishes and I think some dishes would be dairy free if they left the cheese out. You can look at the website and the menus are listed there. TA won't let you list websites or I'd give it, but just google... More
