This place is legit. I kept hearing that there is no good Mexican in London. After a friend from Texas pointed me in the right direction, I discovered even better -- TexMex!

Finally found a place that does very good Mexican food.
I recommend get the gucamole en molcajete - they make the gucamole in front of you and it is to die for!

Definitely a place to go in...more
