This is the most crowded restaurant along Olvera St. This tip could easily be a tourist trap also since it's not the absolute greatest Mexican you'll eat and the number of tourists packed here doesn't make for a very special experience. Still, the establishment is highly desirable. The interior decor is charming and romantic and overall quality is highly reccomendable. Loud and passionate Mariachi bands love to play here,which is either pleasing or annoying to some. It is recommended to tip them a few dollars if you would like them to sereande you.

Favorite Dish: enchilada with pollo (chicken) or queso (cheese) ...always good!!
