I use to LOVE this place .. but now not so much .! This will probably be the third time I bought a torta.. that barley had any meat in it . Pretty disappointing. Plus I got over charged for a drink twice already. I hope management sees this and steps up the game again. I mean you all use to be amazing !!!!!! Please go back !

Honestly the food is great. But the appearance of this place inside and out is not A-1, the only reason I came is because I was recommended by a friend. He said they had Michoacan food. They don’t they have Mexican food. But not Authentic Michoacan food. Unfortunately.Also not much of a variety of ice cream like other Michoacana ice cream shops.I think they should focus on one thing and they will do great. Their food was great like I said.
