    Excellent, authentic Mexican cuisine. We were the only touristas there, it appears to be a local joint. The place is painted a rather vibrant orange which sounds bad but it just makes it incredibly cheerful once you adjust to it. There was plenty of food, the staff was great and IT WAS REASONABLY PRICED! Try the chicken mole, it's awesome. We got a mango drink, made with good water in a blender as you watch, apparently this is one of their specialties. Ours was safe and not bad; I think it depends on the fruit. We had the extra bonus of a Mexican Western playing on the t.v., which added to the fun (graveyards, sombreros, evil women, sensuous men). Added bonus, they were very nice to our kid!

    Favorite Dish: The Chicken Mole was tender, the sauce was really exceptional and it was served with rice, beans, etc. so it was a full meal.
