Here's the thing, if you're used to chain Mexican or even Distrito, high-end like taco places, this won't hit home. This place is excellent Mexican food and as good as anything you'd get in the Southwest. It's way better than any regional chain out there...More

The playhouse is 2 small blocks away on the same side of the street. People always go to eat first before they go to the playhouse. Great restaurant, service is great and very casual.
