Excellent salsa and bean dip. Real tamales in corn wrappers. Creamy guacamole. The decor is refined-simple, matching the simplicity of the few married flavors in each dish, which are given their due spaces to fill your palate. Few restaurants know not to use too much salt. Here the carefully chosen ingredients in each preparation shine through, both individually distinguishable yet pleasantly blended.

This is a small neighborhood restaurant near Preston and Frankford.
The menu is pretty standard Tex-Mex.
The queso sauce looked and tasted like it was out of a can. Not horrible if you like Velveeta.
When we entered we were immediately greeted and escorted to a booth. The waiter appeared quickly. Once we got our food, the service disappeared.
I am a Tex-Mex lover and pretty easy to please.
Between the no service and so-so food, this will be my only time to visit.

This is a gem. Clean, furnished in modern decor this restaurant is terrific. Not a chain. Light tortilla chips made daily. Salsa and black bean dip beautifully seasoned. Try the shrimp Parrillaoa or Alambres ( grilled shrimp,chicken and beef with peppers,and a few onions interspersed) Yum. Grandsons shrimp was superb ! Portions were good size and plated with guacamole and pica sauce. Restrooms were very clean and tidy. Wait staff was courteous, helpful and attentive!
You will not be disappointed.

The Alambres is my favorite plate. Chunks of beef shrimp and chicken flavored just right with some bell peppers grilled to perfection. Fido soup is great. Quality mexican food in amidst a city of just so so mexican....always on a quest for the best! Service can vary. I've had great and I've had so so when it is busy....oh and try the mango water as a beverage...different and great!!

Decorated beautifully, a little more upscale than you average Mexican food restaurant. Service was great, food delicious! Only drawback is the ceilings are very high which seems to add tremendous volume so conversation was a little challenging.... Would go back.
