- Open till 4 am most nights, this is the place for any night owl with an appetite. The Huevos e Chorizo is probably the best late night breakfast dish I've ever had. Jalapenos on top with a cinnamon coffee, and a dream come true. – Craig K., Yelp
- Excellent food, first time visiting Sunday, and plan to return again! Had the chicken soft tacos, like nothing I have had from anywhere else. Recommend this place! I for one loved the mild salsa. – LESLIE, Yahoo Local
