I used to walk past this restaurant on El Camino and I literally thought it had been closed for years because it looks so dead. Apparently the main entrance is in the back, and it's actually a very popular restaurant. My friends love this place, so they took me once. The quesadilla was good, but the other food didn't do much for me. I haven't had any reason to go back since my friend moved out of town.

some traditional fare, but what sets this family run restaurant apart are some of their special dishes. Signature carne asada - perfectly prepared and well spiced. Their chalupas are wonderful and the chicken mole a slice of heaven.
Can be busy and noisy on occasion, as expected in a cozy neighborhood type restaurant, but I have never, ever felt rushed or had a bad meal.
The decor is pleasantly cozy and the fireplace is a nice touch on cold winter nights.

Pros: food, price
