To say we craved the taste of true Mexico City street food is an understatement. So, we brought it to Alexandria. Not something like it, but the real thing. How do we do it?

We make our tortillas from scratch every day, using only nixtamalized masa from heirloom corn. Our salsas are made in-house. Our chile pastes are made in house. Even our al pastor is vertical roasted. To complete the feeling, you can choose from a wide array of Mexican sodas. And our full bar features popular Mexican beers, as well as local and select craft favorites. Our red and white wines are specially selected to pair with our fare, and our cocktail menu introduces a fun twist on traditional Mexican drinks that go way beyond margaritas (although they're here, too—and really good).

We're local, casual, and the perfect way to satisfy cravings. Hope to see you soon.


With our customers' generous donations, we're preparing platters for our local hospitals and first responders. Help us feed these amazing individuals, and receive a gift card in return.
