    What a gem! #10 #12 and #16 were on point- basically any one with cheese will do. #7 was a bit bland. Small portions so you can try a lot! And I did.

    My favorite is #16. Come with cash and don't be afraid to try a few things! This isn't your typical Mexican eatery (not the way most Americans think...)

    The best food south of the border I've ever had. No doubt! Thank you Isidoro for keeping it real for all these years. I regret not taking that job you offered me many years ago. A missed opportunity.

    Excellent chuleta, and the lomito suizo is no slouch either. Gordita is spicy but no tears.
