whatever you call him - pops, papi, old man - one thing is for sure, when he greets you, explains the menu and finds you a place to sit you know you are in a family business that cares about your experience.  you will notice from some of the pictures that our table is a mess. the food came out so fast and was so good that we never quite got our act together to take "pretty" pictures.  we had chips & guacamole, appetizer of chalupas, tacos, two specialty cemitas (atomica alone is worth the trip), mexican coca-cola and flan.  we will return and try some other menu items,  at least that is the goal as there's no guarantee the atomica won't pull us back in (update: we did return, and it did!).

  1. Not only has my mouth been watering since making the atomicas my screen saver, but Cemitas' "Homies" coin operated action figure dispenser appears to have the extremely desirable 'Gunshot Tuco' version. Needless to say, I will be paying them a visit soon, empty stomach and pleanty of quarters in my pocket!

  2. Okay, I want the sandwich for starters and then I'll have to come back to try everything! It all looks like my kind of food and the place looks so friendly. Maybe I'll even start collecting some of the Homies figures too!

  3. You can't keep doing this to me!! I come home from a long night at the bistro...being a chef there is never any food at my house...then peruse your photos and come away absolutely famished and foaming at the mouth! I hate you (I love you) and can't wait til you show up at neMesis.
