    4th Street on a weekend is a scene you can watch for hours. Sit here and enjoy some fresh tortillas; wrap them around eggs with chorizo or huevos divorciados smothered in green and red salsas. Read more

    Tacos to tantalize the tastebuds: carne asada is cooked to perfection but my favorite is taco de pollo. The chicken is tender and moist and topped with a surprisingly flavorful salsa fresca.

    I come here a lot and love the seasonal menu. The chicken and pastor tacos are also fantastic. Good guac -- great salad.

    I normally refuse to spend $$$ on Mexican food; it's the cheap cuisine of my youth, you know? But the tortilla soup, aguas frescas, chips & guac, and veggie tostada here are SO worth the splurge.

    I always do a side salad with un taco. Tamales are also good. Kind of want to try their pozole.

    Seasonal chicken quesadilla de Pipian is amazing. Fresh corn, pumpkin seed sauce.

    Ceviche here in general is too lime-y. It benefits though from the bottled salsas that are nearby, which give the ceviche some balance. Otherwise, most items are pretty good.

    Never disappointed when I go here as great interpretations of Mexican street food and better than the more expensive Doña Tomás.

    Also: the customer service here is amazing. Not to mention the speed of service. We bought a torta and then decided on the enchiladas. They let us swap for free.

    The sope can be made vegetarian if you request it. Fresh corn masa + black beans + fried potatoes = heaven!

    The seasonal menu items keep things fresh, but the chicken taco is a outstanding standard.

    Tacos al pastor and asada were decent, not amazing. Horchata was a bit grainy.
