The fresh addition has garnered rave reviews thus far, with a 4.5-star rating out of two reviews on Yelp.
Claudia C., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Jan. 12, wrote, "I came here for breakfast and we got scrambled eggs with pork sausage and scrambled eggs with veggies and refried beans, and both dishes were tasty, seasoned well and it was a good portion. The salsas were well seasoned and tasty. The tortillas are handmade."
Yelper Brittany M. added, “Finally an authentic Mexican restaurant in our little South Philly neighborhood. The food has such good flavors and the perfect amount of spice. I can definitely see this place being my new go-to."
