“Wow! That is all I can say. I have been to many restaurants in Mexico. Many others here in the USA but I have to say that I would give this restaurant five stars (5 star as highest rating) Why? The cuisine is the best, taste is key, and freshness can be felt on the taste. I know what a fresh tortilla tastes like, if it was made from specific grains and if any kind of flour was mixed in. They are the best tortillas I have tasted so far from a USA restaurant. Of course, I would say there is always something any restaurant can improve. If there red salsa can be spicy that would be great! ( salsa asked on the side for the spicy lovers). (the drinks with the popsicles are a plus on your IG pg. and made to perfection).”
