  • Vegetarian chorizo burrito is the BEST EVER, but don't sit at the bench table before the bathrooms... The AC makes it like eating in a convertible!
  • BYOB. That includes bringing your own tequila to mix drinks!
  • Get the tostadas. They are amazing.
  • Fantastic smokey hot salsa. Frijoles and chorizo appetizer was delish. Love the kitschy interior. Not busy at all, super nice staff. And BYOB!
  • Guatemalan-born chef Charles Alvarez delivers tasty and authentic pan-Latin specialties, from Mexican tostadas to Guatemalan tamales and pupusa corn cakes and his signature ginger-chicken soup.
  • The best, simply the best
