First Review by StaRelevant

Finally some refried beans without lard! - Edit

I ordered a simple smothered bean burrito with tomato and avocado on top. Our waiter was fantastic and very helpful with making modifications to certain dishes. This restaurant was nothing fancy, just a nice home-cooked meal that hits the spot.

Pros: Helpful and attentive waiter, No lard refried beans!

Cons: Tiny building with limited seating, Limited number of vegan options

Leaves much to be desired - Edit

I wanted to like this place, especially based on the 4.9/5 stars on Google reviews, but I'm not impressed. The restaurant appears to be pretty dirty. The chips were stale, the lemonade was watered down, and the service was almost non-existent even though we were the only table. My husband and I ordered a bean and rice burrito, which was nothing special. The green chili sauce was pretty good, but the burrito as a whole was average at best. Definitely not worth the money

Cons: cleanliness, lack of flavor

Not Impressed - Edit

Maybe I'm missing something but I did not see any vegan offerings on their menu. I ordered a bean tostada and vegetarian green chili.

Cons: No vegan menu options. , Substitutions to menu (i.e. making something veg-f

Friendly, Authentic - Edit

This small diner is home to very authentic, reasonably priced Mexican food. The owners are warm and laid back. They have been in the restaurant business for over twenty years and at the 32nd Street location for four years (as of January 2017). I learned all of this on just one visit--as I said, the owners are friendly.

While there is meat extensively on the menu and a pork salsa provided (free) with the tortilla chips, they do not use lard in any cooking and most any item can be made vegan (or vegetarian) upon request AND they are happy to accommodate your request, no judgement or weird looks. :) Would give five stars if the rating-system allowed for it for restaurants that are not 100% veg.

In addition, they have gluten-free considerations and a wonderful horchata.

Pros: Delightful vegan green chili; Authentic Mexican, Reasonably priced, Friendly
