Way too expensive even for Duval street..We specifically told the male waiter with eastern European accent that We need to seat inside for the A/C..It was 90F outside.. He seats us and We found out A/C wasn't working properly..When I asked him he said.".It doesn't matter because in key west we don't need A/C"

I grew up in New Mexico and am a serious Mexican food connoisseur ... We asked for their hottest hot sauce and they delivered! We had a party of 7 with lots of drinks and laughs and thoroughly enjoyed the food, the atmosphere, and the service. Thanks guys! Best hot sauce in town by far!

What a hiden treasure we found in the Old Town Mexican Cafe on Duval St.... the food was amazing, the Corona Light was the cheapest we found in KW (bucket of 5 for $12), the staff was so friendly and the atmosphere on the patio was very relaxing :) We will be back again and again :)

This is good authentic Mexican meals and not too expensive. We grabbed chips and salsa with a few drinks and grilled corn, got out cheap and felt full. Came back for dinner another night and grabbed more chips, drinks and some tacos. Everything was fresh and service was good. Seating is all outside and very comfortable.

We were the only two people eating for lunch. So the service was amazing but the food was just average. I ordered the burrito and it had a hint of barbecue in it. I ordered the Mexican milkshake and it was defiantly different. It wasn't horrible in price so that is why I gave it three stars.

It was a nice relaxing place to stop. The food was very good and happily, they had some vegan friendly options. My 6 year old son and I really enjoyed it while the rest of our party had a not so enjoyable time at a burger place.

Nice place but they messed up our order. Food was average. Wouldn't have said authentic though. Shame really. I wasn't pleased they added the gratuity automatically after messing the order up.

We are aficionados of Mexican food. It was outstanding and the fiver beers for $12 was an added bonus. Also, the atmosphere is one of the best in Key West with the outdoor patio just gorgeous. We had the fried mahi mahi tacos and they were amazing.
