Fodor's Review

Fans swirl in the air, doors are open to the street, and cheerful oilcloths cover wooden tables at this no-frills spot across from the cathedral. Egg dishes and chilaquiles are served 9 am to 11 am, and an inexpensive daily lunch menu is served 2 pm to 5 pm. For around $5, you get soup, a main dish, a drink, homemade tortillas, and dessert. Office workers come in for takeout or drift in between 6 pm and 10 pm for tacos, tortas (Mexican-style sandwiches on crispy white rolls), or pozole. A recipe for the last is given—along with a positive dining review—in a framed Los Angeles Times article from the 1980s.
