Lunch

This is the second time we ate at this restaurant. The menu is small but the food is good. Service was a little slow this time and I had to send my food back because it was not what I ordered. They did bring the right order quickly though.

Excellent food, varied menu. SO much more than tacos and enchiladas (although you can get them too); a very interesting assortment of different cuisines from south of the border. Also, a VERY respectable collection of tequilas!

I love the food here. I have never had an issue with anything! I usually get food to go and eat in my hotel room but have dined in too! The food is just so fresh and home made. I really can't say enough good things about it!

Stopped in on a quiet Monday night about 5ish, we were the first ones in. They put us ( couple) off in a corner not odd maybe they thought it was a romantic thing to do. Not that I mind that but was curious to see the operation so we would have been happy out in the room. Anyway the... More

Great food and lots of it. Each dish special in its own way. Friendly service. Popular and crowded. Worth the wait.

I love everything about this restaurant, the delicious food, the bright and cheery decor, the wrap around porch in the summer, and the lovely service. Wonderful place. Highly recommend.

The Xicohtencatl served perhaps the best authentic Mexican my wife and I have eaten. Caution: we are used to Tex-Mex and are not well versed in 'authentic.' However, the food was great.

We had lunch here today. I ordered a carnitas burrito. What I got was a chicken and vegetable burrito. My husband had the carnival tacos and we split our meals. I ate my taco first. When I got to my burrito, I told my husband I had no meat in my half, so he gave me some of his. I... More

We love this place - excellent service - most of the time food is presented very well, sometimes its thrown on the plate because they are so busy. I would say if they paid more attention to detail it would be 5 stars! The veggies are always cut in strange shapes, and unevenly cooked that everything has to be recut... More
