Each scrumptious selection on the menu tastes identical to authentic Mexican recipes.
Downey is a lovely little city amidst the hustle and bustle of the Los Angeles metro area, but real estate prices are still fair. Neighborhoods are pretty and crime rates in Downey are low. A downfall to living in this quaint little city is the traffic. Downey is nestled between four major freeways, making streets busy most of the day. After the rush of traffic has slowed for the evening, streets clear out and Downey regains its small-town feeling with families seen walking and enjoying the mild climate.
