Our Story

I'm a SoCal native who usually can't find really good Mexican food in L.A. near me. The al pastor tacos and the combo taquitos were EXCELLENT, and were perfectly paired with beer. Everything was huge and inexpensive (by my standards)! I'm visiting family and now they are sold on coming here from Galludet. Great service and a beautiful atmosphere with lots of art. A sweet family runs the place - please help them thrive!

I ordered the lunch Taco and the selection was pretty solid. I went with Tinga Chicken and Barbacoa beef, they did not disappoint. However, the salsa and other condiments offered had a fair amount of heat to them and a bit of spice that overpowered the taco's. I tried the taco's before adding a small amount of the condiments and I recommend leaving them off to fully enjoy the flavor of the meats. The Mexican rice was good as well!
