    Ceviche (1/2 order) is big enough for 2 to split as app. Really good salsa. Solid caldo as well.

    Interior and traditional and a South Austin gem. The empanadas de huitlacoche of handmade corn masa are stuffed with corn truffle or "corn smut" to make a real delicacy. Read more

    Horrible service. Waiter took forever to greet us, finally got our drinks, oh yeah and manager behind bar dropped our phone while redeeming Groupon and acted like nothing happened. Go if you dare.

    The Enchiladas Del Norte are pretty good, especially if you can't decide between carne guisada or enchiladas. You can have a bit of both with this dish!

    At lunch, the enchiladas del Norte (carne guisada) are great! Anything for dinner is wonderful; I get the puerco en chile cazcabel. It's some of the best red sauce in town!
