Lovers of Hispanic cuisine and ingredients travel from all points in the metropolitan area to this old-fashioned corner grocery and deli. The seating arrangement inside is spartan, although an outside courtyard is available when weather permits. The menu features close to a dozen whole-meal plates of classic Mexican specialties, along with chicken roasted in the Cuban style.
