    I ordered a burrito by phone for pickup and soon I showed up and my food was ready. There is paid parking on front and more on the side street. The restaurant is on the corner so it's easy to find. The burrito was good, the room for improvement is the red sauce since it was dry. I turned the side upside down and the entire thing came out dry. Good service and food, will try again so I hope the salsa is better.

    Tried the lengua tacos. Super tender and flavorful. This was my second time eating cow tongue tacos. They were delicious. Stopped by this place by chance and no regrets. The staff was super friendly and accommodating to us. There were two kinds of salsas. The Green salsa was delicious and the red mild salsa was some kind of garlic salty achiote paste. Loved mixing both and eating them together on tacos and the chips. The flan was nice and firm and Not too sweet except the caramel on top. Took the tres Leche to go and realized it was more on the savory side than the sweet. Took a second to get used to because I was expecting a sugary mouthful but it was a balanced sweet and salty. If you don’t like desserts super sweet I would recommend trying their desserts they were just right for me.

    Came here for the first time on a Saturday evening for dinner. Ordered tampequenia and a Carne asada burrito, also chips and salsa, with flan for dessert. Tampequinia came with quesadillas instead of a traditional enchilada, but that's fine. Steak was very thin and not to flavorful. Rice and Beans were good. My husband's steak burrito was average. Our biggest gripe is that this was a Mexican restaurant using mozzarella cheese instead of chihuahua cheese like you should be on Mexican dishes. Made a difference. Guacamole that was served with the Carne asada dinner was pretty good. Let's talk about thr weird thick "red salsa" that seems to be their signature thing. As a Mexican myself, I had never seen such a thing. Tasted and felt like dipping a chip into a can of garlic flavored tomato paste. Kind of weird. Chips were also not good at all and kind of stale. Flan was a nice portion size and good tasting. Could have used a little bit more of the burnt sugar on top, but over all a solid B in grading. Servers were very nice and food was quick to come out. Over all ok, but I don't think I'll be back. Cash, zelle or quick pay ONLY!

    Came here for the Chilaquiles after seeing it mentioned in an Eatery article. They did not disappoint! Ordered full dinner with rice and beans and got eggs with chorizo. Service was great and the owner is a wonderful lady. Going back to try Pozole next. Update: 1/22/2022 Tried the Pozole today. It was so good! Highly recommended. FYI, cash only or Zelle.
