Booked the restaurant for dinner. When we finally found the place, in an alley, the hostess was clueless when I told her I had a reservation on OPEN TABLE. She escorted me inside where the music was SO LOUD!!! Moved to an outside table, immediately accosted by panhandlers. Left without ordering and went into NONOSOLO, quieter and further down the alley. Nice fish.
Very good inexpensive regional Mexican food. The large tostada we had was delicious and enough for 3 ppl. The queso fundido with fried grasshoppers was daring and also very good. We had margaritas and beers with dinner which came to $25usd. Amazing quality and quantity for the price!
