Small authentic Mexican restaurant that gets very crowded on weekends. Worth it. Good food at reasonable prices. Service was also good as they also have a small bar if u need to wait. Will be back.

We went on a Wednesday evening and were surprised that they were very busy. We had a half hour wait for a table. We shared the cactus salad and fried plantains. They were very tasty. We also nibbled on the complimentary chips and salsa. I had a combo platter with a cheese enchilada, steak taco and chicken tostado. It was... More

Always colorful and pleasant with someone's real Mexican family recipes unlike the Americanized chain Mexican restaurants. The best mole this side of Oaxaca. Very good margueritas and a wide selection of Mexican beers. Mariachi music played just loud enough for a festive atmosphere but not so loud it interferes with conversation. Very popular and busy Happy Hour and it's always... More

One of the best authentic Mexican restaurants around! My friend and I went for lunch. I have been here many times and it is never disappointing. We ordered shrimp ceviche for an appetizer. So delicious, bursting with cilantro and lime flavors. Our entrees, a chicken dish and stuffed poblano pepper were delicious, also. As we sipped our margaritas, I closed... More

This area isn't known for its exquisite cuisine but if you happen to be in the mood for Mexican cuisine, this should be your go to place. I have yet to get s bad meal from here and the guacamole is delish. Made to order served with homemade chips. Their salsas are fresh and so are the tortillas. You won't... More

Not a fan overall. I am not sure how this restaurant is consistently rated in the magazines as the best Mexican in the area. It is just average. The service was extremely slow; I wasn't wowed by the food. I enjoy La Forgata in Berlin much better. The portion sizes are large, but where's the flavor? Many of my dishes... More
