I am having a tough time with this one; my husband and I have eaten here twice, and both times the food was delicious, but the service was poor. We were hoping the service issue was a one-off, so we went back, and found it...More

Saturday night visit. Not crowded but many tables with people. Waited a few minutes before I was greeted. Escorted to three tables, all unclean, before we found one that was good for me to sit and eat. Started with a raspberry lemonade margarita. Nothing special....More

Went for dinner on Saturday and were seated quickly and served our food what felt like 5 minutes. The guacamole is spot on. Try anything that has the mole sauce.

Our fist time here so we were offered samples of two of the chef's favorites and those were so good we ordered entree items that featured those (mole sauce and the pork adobo sauce). The table-side guacamole also was superb.

First time visit. Pros: Authentic food. Street tacos were very good, spicey carnitas. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Four kinds of salsa offered. Attentive staff. Cons: Menus were cumbersome. Tortilla chips were too thick and hard.
