Very nice restaurant, delicious Mexican food, especially their fresh avocado and salsa. Portions are adequate, do not expect super sized American portions. Excellent service and very accommodating towards our vegan requirements. Only down side, smoke from patio eminated into the restaurant throughout our meal.

Hello VanessaPerez, We find your review misleading! Seeing that you very much enjoyed the ambiance and that your boyfriend loved our signature Mercado Beef Burrito, your low rating is not justifiable. But we think you didn't get the memo regarding our concept, in which we...More
