This is just like any other Mexican restaurant Service is slow. The staff stands next to the bar and talks in Spanish while looking at you. You wonder if they are talking about you? If you need something forget about asking because they are to busy standing there speaking Spanish to wait on you.

Service was OK to poor. No smile ...no greeting....no bill to table. Messy.

The tacos were passable. They had no real flavour or spice or fire. The taste to me was dumbed down to suit American palates.This should not happen...serve it as it should be cooked and eaten.

But the tamale....what the heck was that? It was dreadful...an absolute mess and nothing like a real tamale. The chef should know better ... if he is Mexican. It was so bad I couldn't eat it and to be fair the waiter took it off the menu.

This is not authentic real Mexican food by any stretch. I have been a few times to the heart of Mexico and toured 1500 miles in the Yucatan alone.

My very favorite mexican place. The service is out of this world, the food is not TacoBell, It is the real thing. You become friends with the servers in 2 minutes. I actually know all of the employees names and I live in PA. The place is that memorable.
