Amazing food! Especially their chicken tortilla soup, sopa pillas, and all of their seafood. The complex yet delicate flavors explode like a full-blown fiesta to your tastebuds. Their chips and salsa, my favorite is their tomatillo salsa, are light and flavorful. That and the rice and beans are my real tests for any Mexican restuarant and they shine. The atmosphere is always bright and cheerful without being overwhelming or gaudy. But one of the main reasons I keep coming back, besides the amazing food, is because their staff are always happy and cheerful and treat you like you're sitting down to the family table. I have been eating here since 1999 and is still hands down my favorite Mexican restaurant ever. It is a "little hole in the wall" gem that is well worth the trip there even though I do not live in the area anymore. They even have a cute outside patio eating area that is perfect for a romantic date.
