Not seeing this mentioned anywhere, so I thought I'd make a post for it.
I was honestly impressed by how good and authentic the food was here. Being surrounded by touristy bars and tanning salons, I figured it would be an Americanized sort of Mexican. It wasn't.
The spicy shrimp taco was a spot on Baja style with plenty of cheese and caramelized onions. The adobada was rich with achiote paste. The carnitas came in big chunks. The agua frescas were obviously made in-house. The tacos are juicy and messy, just the way I like them.
And the menu had so many interesting items, I have no doubt I'll be back soon. Highly recommended.
