my friends and I love this spot. The margaritas are off the hook, and the prices are reasonable. I will have to agree that the service sucks, especially if you are a female. However, because the restaurant is one of the few authentic restaurants that have remained despite gentrification, I sense that folks are expecting great service for a cheap price. And frankly, that is not possible for an over-worked staff. I love the place because it is one of the few places left in LES where the crowd is mixed, not only white, and where you feel a sense of home and genuity in the midst of so much mod and yuppie auras...:)

I always tell my bf that we are never ever coming back to this restaurant because the service is so poor. The waitress literally just drops the menu down, barely says a word, and it takes a lot to get her attention, but the food is truly magical. Very delicious! and inexpensive, so my bf and i always end up going back on days we are broke.

I think that the cheese enchiladas are the best in the city. The margaritas are delicious too. Yet every time I come here I say "I'm never coming again." Haha. Seriously, if you bring a large water bottle (since getting water is impossible) and order everything at once you'll be okay, The service is pretty rough though, and it is very hard to get the check.

My friends and i go here for the strong margaritas. i'm pretty sure they're made with everclear, not tequila. the food is alright- the chicken tacos were not too good but the rice and beans with cheese is delicious and very cheap. the service is poor. sometimes it will take 30 minutes for someone to come by your table for the first time. forget about refills on the chips and salsa.
