Great fun spot to try! The Birria de res (beef) is wonderful. If you have never had it...try it! Similar to a slow cook pot roast served shredded in a broth soup that is AMAZING! Or can have it in a taco...but the soup is where the flavor is.

The self proclaimed birthplace of the margarita. The original cantina still looks and feels like it did when it opened in 1891! Walk through saloon style door back in time to this iconic location!
