Having grown up on the border of Mexico, this is the closest food I have found to Mexican cuisine yet here in Puerto Rico. Their tacos (or taquitos as I would call them) were fantastic!!! We had the chicken and pork. Wow! I couldn't have made it better at home. The tomatillo salsa was to die for, only if you like spicy. The guava salsa was good, and less spicy. But we ended up with the tomatillo to go for breakfast on eggs tomorrow. The margaritas were good, and the fact you can get Jarritos is awesome! We also got an order of pozole to go for breakfast in the morning. Can't wait for the AM to arrive! This was an awesome surprise, especially after living here for 4 years and not knowing of this place. We will definitely be back!!

Dear Mr. Jose R.
The fact that I was born in Puerto Rico (Yes, I am an AMERICAN Citizen), just as you are, speak 3 languages and had traveled, and worked in several countries (including as a COOK in Mexico for 5 years) is a pretty good indication that what I put on your plate is authentic as it gets even though not everyone understand or had experienced real Mexican Cuisine. Most of my Comensales Do.
Let's see if you get this short story... My sister was also born in P.R. She has never cooked a meal and has no food palate whatsoever. If she opens a Puerto Rican restaurant in Mexico... Would your opinion be that it is a good restaurant because she (the cook) is Puerto Rican?
Your suggestion of Rosalinda clearly indicates your level of expertise in "Real Mexican Food" and your motivation to write this post. Thanks for your opinion.

Friendly staff. The food was excellent, we had the burrito and quesadilla. The guava sauce was sweet and spicy and went well with the chips. Would recommend for anyone looking for some good grub on the island.
