“Wonderful!!!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

Ate here for lunch. The food was excellent and way beyond our expectation. We showed up just before they closed to transition to dinner but the waitress, Taylor seated us and gave us excellent service. Will definitely be back.

“Average Mexican food”
Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

I ate dinner here based on all of the reviews. Maybe my expectations were a little too high, or maybe I don't understand what Mexico City style food is. I think this was average at best. The chips were warm and crispy, however, the salsa tasted a little too much like tomato sauce, and the guacamole was just ok. My vegetable enchilada was not very good. The watermelon margaritas were outstanding. Reservations are a good idea. I tried making them, but every time I called it went straight to voicemail and said they would be open for Cinqo de Mayo. I am here in July. I drove there for an early dinner and found out they are closed from 3:00 - 5:00. I recommend getting a spot at the bar and ordering some apps.

“Looks can be deceiving”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

I know this doesn't look like a eclectic Mexican restaurant but it is. Good selection of margaritas. Fish tacos and enchiladas were to die for. All suggested by the staff. Enjoy.

“Mexico City style”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Outstanding food true to Mexico City style cuisine. The place is small and in a strip mall. The decor is fine, not overdone. The focus is the food and drinks and it is excellent. Many different dishes ordered at out table and everyone enjoyed. The grilled shrimp dish is especially outstanding. Highly recommended.
