  • Delicious chilaquiles.
  • Whats good here? Everything. The food, the drinks, the service, the art, the patio, even the house tequila. Thats a rarity.
  • Huaraches norteo (chorizo and grilled cactus on a large tortilla) yummmm. I havent had something that delicious and original in a Mexican place in a while.
  • Everything.
  • Laid-back, family friendly. Good food.
  • After 1 bite of my torta, I exclaimed "holy shit that's fucking good". The bartender / waiter turned - "I know, right?". So, yeah, get the veggie/mushroom torta. Last bite was as good as the first.
  • Go there Saturday for brunch, they open at noon!
  • Chester Gerl, chef of Hundred Acres, eats here on his nights off. He loves the Pollo Machine.
  • Everything here is good. I very much like the tortas & huraches.
  • Best tacos!
  • The fish tacos are muy delicioso, they have little strips of apple in them.
  • Pollo machine quesadilla is hard to not order... So delicious
  • Authentic and excellent. Nopal huarache and agua de pepino. :)
  • This friendly and small cafe space serves some of the best Mexican food in town. Soulful and comforting, warm up with a plate of enchiladas picudas with cactus sauce. Homestyle-cooking inspires menu.
  • Giant, delicious Orchata.
  • By far, they have the best (and biggest) tortas in town. They are located on Beacon Hill...just a few blocks from the light rail station.
  • Call ahead to make sure they're open. Came at 8pm on a Friday night and they had closed early.
