“Average mexican”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

Ample portions, very nice service, huge selection and very reasonable price. The bathroom is not clear, but the tables, silverware & open space are. The food, however, is cheese covered and average.

“Standard Lunch Fare, Reasonable Prices”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We came in on a Thursday and ordered off the lunch combination menu, one plate with two tacos, the other plate with a tamale and an enchilada. Both plates came with chips, salsa, rice and beans. Around $13 for both without drinks, tip. Both lunches pleasant, nothing special. It was a warm day, so we ate inside, but there were sidewalk tables set up for those who would appreciate an open air experience. Loved the heavy wooden chairs at the tables - carved with interesting scenes and brightly painted. The bar space looked cozy - it is in the center of the dining space and you enter through swinging café doors. The only negative we had was the waiters attention to our order detail. When we placed our order, I asked for the two plates now, then a third lunch "to go" to be brought with our bill. He brought the bill, and had forgotten to submit the to go order. Since the party at home was expecting their lunch, we had to wait while that order was processed.

“Every Tapa was Better Than the Last”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

We are two couples who had not spent much time together for years. We couldn't have picked a better spot for eating, enjoying fine wines and reconnecting. Because there were four of us, we were able to try dish after dish after dish. And they all just kept getting better and better. I think the Chili Prawns were our favorite! Our server was unbelievably knowledgable about wines and recommended excellent wines for our drinking pleasure. He was patient with us, answered all of our questions, and even gave us a handwritten list of his favorite wines, at the end of our visit. Lost Molcajetes was one of our favorite restaurants - ever!

“Dinner with locals and friends”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

A group of 8 of us had dinner there the first week of June. Place was busy for a Tuesday early evening. We were visiting from out of state with local friends. Service was excellent considering how busy they were. The chips and salsa we quickly replenished and the drinks were very good. Had large combination dinner with two types of Chile Colorado and Verde and Chile Rellano. A little disappointed that the flour tortillas were not home made, very large portions did not disappoint. Would defintely recommend for nice dinner with friends.
