It is hard to believe, that in 2013 I'd be asked, "Smoking or non smoking?"
In addition to the Back to the Future air quality, this restaurant in general is not going to win any health department awards.
But, the food was respectable. Watch the hot sauce: it is pureed to a fine consistency, and is fiery. The menu is one of the most comprehensive I've seen, with dozens of entrees. They also serve breakfast, including my favorite migas.
My own taste in Mexican food is a bit more in-country oriented than most Texans, and I asked our Hispanic waiter what he eats when taking lunch there. The answer: Taquitos Mexicanos, sitting down in the lower corner of the dinner menu. It had "por los paisanos" written all over it; sure enough, what arrived was a tasty ensemble of smallish yellow corn tortillas stacked double, buried under a pile of nice steak and lightly seared onion, a jumbo lime half there for the obligatory drizzle.
The tortillas reminded me of the coarse little handmade ones at my favorite Mexico City eatery, Parilla Suisa.
The thick, soupy charro beans that came in one of those three-legged pestle bowls (with a spoon so distorted it looked like a lightning bolt) were the best of my life. Seriously. Wonderfully flavorable, perfectly seasoned.
I also tried my wife's shrimp, her guacamole. Both were exemplary. There were five of us at the table, everyone liked what he/she got. Our entire bill was $47.
Granted, this is not a date restaurant. Don't go there expecting this. It is basic, gritty, loud. A glimpse into the kitchen is nothing short of terrifying. But, the food is as good as Mexican gets.
