Time Out NY The name and tight quarters may recall cheapie chains, but nostalgic sepia photos and a soft Mexican-folk soundtrack imbue this humble hole-in-the-wall with soulful warmth and hospitality. A hearty plate of nachos built on homemade tortilla chips or one of the namesake burritos will fill you up, but discriminating palates will appreciate the surprising subtlety of the house specialties. Tender chicken morsels bathed in zesty chili sauce are beer-steamed in parchment, and a tangy, complex mole enlivens enchiladas. Don"t blink as you walk by this small wonder; you don"t want to miss it.
