So many of our Latino friends have recommended this place over the last few years but we never made it there til a couple of days ago. But we won't be waiting long to return. They open at 10 so serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. They also have a patio with live music (I imagine that will wrap up as the weather changes). A really extensive menu from breakfast, apps, soups (menudo and posole caught MY eye), combo plates, etc. We got the El Adobe Birria (beef not goat). It had marinated in this deep, dark, flavorful sauce and then slow cooked. Literally fork tender. With generous helping of rice and beans, chopped onions and cilantro and a tasty guacamole. Choice of flour or corn tortillas. The Margaritas are served in heavy, glass beer mugs which I far prefer to those (IMO) silly glasses :) They also have a tequila menu. When I was talking to the owner on the way out, he encouraged me to visit their website as they have various coupons and specials.

These folks have been around for over ten years and I'm sorry we didn't find them sooner. I highly recommend.

ETA: picture is with new phone so not as good as the food actually looked :)
