Meals are rolled out from the kitchen on carts, which makes a lot of sense when you see how huge so many of the dishes are. Each chimichanga is a cylinder the size of a yule log. The "President’s Plate" is a bean tostada, a birria taco, a chili relleno, a chicken enchilada, and a beef tamale. We are particularly fond of the chicken topopo salad.

"The term "Mexican pizza" does not do justice to the delicacy of a good cheese crisp. This one is decorated with lines of excellent guacamole."
