  • High end mexican restaurant. I wouldn't say it's the most authentic mexican restaurant. But they still have really good food, drinks, and a very nice atmosphere.
  • I cent understand what people see in this place - if you have had real mexican food. The food taste canned, service sucks, and nothing is authentic. The best item is the salsa!
  • The Blue Corn Enchiladas are the best singular item, but A Taste of History wI'll get you a pork tamale, chile relleno, cheese enchilada, and beef taco.
  • homey atmosphere and excellent food! margaritas are gooooooooood
  • Ask for the diablo salsa!
  • Love the mini cholula bottles!
  • Enchiladas Suizas, best in the city.
  • The guacamole is awesome. Tortilla soup is flavorful and now we are going to try the green chile - corn - cheese tamales that the restaurant is known for - okay first bite delicious
  • This is my favorite place to stumble out of.
  • This place sucks. Gross food and terrible service!
  • Ask to sit at the free nachos table
  • I can't understand why people come here (and even wait for a table). The food is below par and service is very slow. The food isn't even authentic. The best thing on the menu is the salsa!
  • Blue Corn Chicken Enchiladas are amazingthrow in some Salsita and you're Golden.
  • Filet mignon tacos are amazing!
  • Green Corn Tamales are back in season!
