The restaurant sits on the second floor at the corner of 7th Avenue and Garfield and has a large mural to catch the eye. Friendly, rotund Mexican servers in bright green shirts serve food when they aren't standing in the back talking to the cooks. The music is primarily of the Mexican/German polka variety, and the decor is simple and mercifully free of memorabilia nailed to the walls.
The perfunctory tortilla chips are tasty and offered in the orange, brown, and tortilla colors. The salsa is a little watery but tasty. The food is pretty standard fare, and if you don't know what mole poblano is, they offer a translation guide on the back of the menu. Don't expect anything too spice at this place, however. Speaking of mole poblano, that has been my primary meal choice whenever I visit.
