Everything I've tasted on the menu has been good, but I am partial to the cochinita pibil dish they serve. Margaritas are nice by the pitcher here too.

Rude staff, bland food. For instance- enchiladas are just chicken wrapped in a tortilla swimming in tasteless sauce. Tamales are mush wrapped in a corn husk. Also if you have any concerns, they will claim there is "no manager" to speak to.

I can't speak to the more elaborate dishes here. But if you're looking for the basic burrito, rice and beans experience, you can do much better.
There was nothing special about the taste here, especially for the money - - a tad expensive

This place is a hipster haven, but fun atmosphere. The drinks are delicious and lethal! Yumm! One margerita almost did me in. The food, not so much. I had fajitas and they were bland and didn't come with any extras...not even sour

There is no better place for a perfect spinach enchilada Zacatacana... or sock it to me momma! This amazing sauce is nowhere else (but the Yucatan, from what I understand). Sure the margaritas are overpriced, but they're great! The atmosphere is perfect for families and running into friends.

Never visit LA without trying to visit and order enchiladas mole. Quick service and huge burritos complement the fact that Mexico City actually has a small parking lot behind...a must in LA!

But the rest of the food is kind of so-so given the price. It's a bit sad, because it's in a great location. Alegria on Sunset is much better for the price.

The habanero salsa is outstanding--almost every time we order it, the waiter raises an eyebrow because it's burning hot and maybe we look like we can't take it. We can take it. The chips are great. Margaritas are overpriced (even the house ones) and full of ice. My favorite dish is spinach enchiladas with black mole. Good family restaurant.
