Not very authentic and the food is ok. It does not have the relaxed atmosphere like other Mexican restaraunt julio's barrio, and the food is not as good as I thought.

All the food in this trendy restaurant is as fresh as it gets. And tastes great. A sort of hippy atmosphere there, really laid back and relaxed. I'll certainly be back. Thanks.

So I like the idea of being served a cerveza while waiting in line and the Papas Fritas is comfort food/yummy. Otherwise the Al Pastor tacos were overcooked and not overly distinct in flavour. Probably won't go back soon.

Love this place! The atmosphere is great, lots of little things around the restaurant to look at. I had the chicken tacos and they were fabulous.

Love the atmosphere here! The food is amazing as well. The fish tacos are delicious! Can't wait for them to open their second location.

If you are looking for Tex Mex, this is NOT the restaurant for you. The menu at Tres Carnales is similar to what you would find at one of the taquerias in Puerto Vallarta and the taste of the food is authentic Mexican. Among my favourites are the fish tacos and pulled port quesadillas. Watch for the daily specials. Chef... More

This place restored my faith in Mexican cuisine. I have become so wary of Mexican food equating to (something) with rice and refried beans, I was very wary of coming here. But I was totally wrong. The food was freshly prepared, lively and delicious. And not a bit of rice or a refried bean in sight. It's a casual place... More

This is the best Mexican food I've had outside of Mexico. There is a lot of care that goes into the food here - they have no freezer - everything is made fresh and you can taste the difference. It is a casual and fun place to be, but leave yourself time because it is always packed.

Located in downtown Edmonton on Rice Howard Way, near many office buildings, is my guess that this small restaurant was so busy when I went there with a group of co-workers one lunch hour. We had to wait in line for 15 minutes to order, another 10 to 15 to get our food, which was good, but not great. The... More
