Legit mexican. No Cali, No Tex, Just ghetto flavor!
The tacos are awesome, huge and plentiful on fresh rolled masa tortillas. For $2.50 you can't loose. The hurachas are similar in size to the taco, so it doesn't really make sense that they should be $8.50 for the addition of only a little garnish and lettuce. The big wow factor was their special (holy mole!) I'm not usually a big mole fan, it's usually too dark, a little burnt, and a confusion of spice. This one was sweet, spicy and just the right flavor profile to leave me craving more!

Heavy Heaping Mountains of lamb grace the place along side light and fluffy couscous. Its more lamb for your buck then most restaurants, and though a little gristly it was delicious. The fish patties come three yummy giant fried empenada sized hot pockets for 5 dollars.
