Exceptional Authentic Mexican Food

If you like authentic gourmet Mexican dishes then this is a must try dining destination. Superb food and handcrafted margaritas. Be prepared for a wait since many others have already discovered this gem and they don't take reservations. Lunch is less crowded most days. The cerveche is a must try!

This is a must eat place. The portions are small but incredibly delicious. You can't go wrong with any of the tacos. I would definitely recommend the guacamole of the day and a side of mexican corn. Get there early as it is a very small place and fills us very quickly for the night.

Someone at one of the chocolate shops referred us to Bien Trucha for lunch when we asked for a place to eat outdoors and we were not disappointed. This cute little outdoor patio area is sandwiched between 2 small buildings. It has maybe a dozen or so tables and we waited about 15min to get one. Drinks looked great as... More

This restaurant is trendy and terrific! Ever since it was featured on the TV show Check Please it has been mobbed. Those that have tried it have become loyal fans. The guacamole changes daily and features chopped fruit...a personal favorite is the watermelon. This is a great spot to order and share food with friends. Don't miss the equites, arroz... More

I've been here multiple times, and the food is always delicious, and the drinks are ven better. You can pick between Bien Trucha and Bien Trucha kitchen. Both amazing.

I have eaten here multiple times, and it is always delicious. The fish tacos are amazing as are all the cocktails! Luckily, I live within walking distant, so if the wait is too long I simply get it to go. Servers are all excellent and friendly.

I give this review because i love coming to this restaurant the only thing that holds me back is it is not kid friendly. . No high chairs, no kids items on the menu, no kids cups and so on. My suggestion is that because there is so many different sections on the patio it could be a little more... More

The tacos are delicious here!! Its kind of a "family style" setup, so not your traditional Mexican restaurant -- but great for a night out away from the kids with friends or a casual work lunch! I am not a drinker, but my friends said the cocktails were delicious as well! My recommendation is the Bien Trucha Tacos (Streak and... More
