Best Mexican Food around but slow, slow, slow service

Absolutely disgusting. I ordered the Mexicalli Chicken which was supposed to be chicken in a Mexican red sauce, cheese, scallions and jalapeño peppers. This slop came out swimming in what was like tomato sauce, with huge strips of sweet peppers, giant strips of onions and mushrooms??? Is this Mexican or Italian?

Food was below average. My friend had to send back her meal because it was burnt. Service very slow. Wasn 't the waitress' fault. Only pne waitress for the entire dining room. She ran around while the owners sat at the bar! Very poor. Will never go back. Was better before new owners

There was a change of ownership and a slight change to the menu but it was mediocre at best. The biggest surprise was the rise in drink prices. We won't be going back for awhile. It was a comfortable place but... More
