Our Review

This Little Village restaurant puts out the usual Mexican dishes--with a few surprises. We started with exceptionally thick and flavorful caldo de mariscos in a broth so good even the krab in the mix seemed tasty. Our order of camarones rellenos turned out to be shrimp wrapped in bacon bathed in a chile de arbol sauce with praiseworthy bite and texture. Fajitas chillonas was a blend of chicken, steak, fish, and shrimp, not bad despite the disconcerting mix of beasts. But the side of frijoles charros was just the best: plump, unmashed pinto beans nestled into superb liquor with bacon and strips of ham--quite possibly the smartest three bucks I’ve spent in a long time.
