Food and service were excellent! Yuli had a fun, inviting personality and was very helpful with menu explanations and recommendation for first time visitors. Her husband was food prep and did an awesome job as well. You can choose your cut or selection of pork meat / carnitas for your dish and her husband was very helpful in making the choice for your preference. Thank you for a great lunch experience and super tasty food!
