SF Weekly's Description
This hole-in-the-wall with a few blue Formica-topped tables and a few more seats at a counter is colorfully decorated with arts and crafts from Oaxaca, the centrally located Mexican state whose culinary specialties are served up in generous portions here. Along the unusual offerings are tlayudas, sometimes called "Mexican pizzas": huge tortillas grilled to a crisp and topped with refried beans, shredded lettuce, tomato, avocado, Oaxacan quesillo cheese, and your choice of about a dozen toppings, including cecina (spicy pork), lengua (tongue), carne asada, and tequila chicken. Better tacos are to be had elsewhere, and the baked goods look better than they taste. The hours (6 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily) are extremely useful.

Menu Must: Banana-leaf tamales
Get the hot chocolate.
Not BYOB no more. Corona and Negra!
The banana leaf tamale is awesome. The mole is just right and the chicken is incredibly tender. Bravo!
