"No mames"

This place is my go to for Mexican food I've been coming here since the 90's, and aside from my Mexican family's house this is the only other place I eat Mex, they have a bunch of salsas that are not on the menu (habanero,chile de arbol) and the Mole taste like my grandmas, plenty of tequila

When I was 19 years old I had the opportunity to vacation in Puerto Vallarta and Cancun before both places became well known prime tourist locations. What I remember most about those trips was the great local food that I enjoyed. All of those yummy memories came back to me when I was having dinner at Arnaldo Richards' Picos. The... More

We had a reservation for 9 people on a Friday evening. When we got there 5 minutes before our time, we were told they were running behind, but our table would be ready in 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, time got bumped (airline style) by another 15 minutes. Our polite protest was met with a sincere apology, but no "attitude".... More

I went there for dinner with my girlfriend and it was amazing. They have a talented Mariachi duo (harp and guitar), who came by our table and let us request a song and sang it to us. They have a long list of different margaritas available and they all sounded so good. I ended up having the Perfect margarita. I... More

From the moment you walk in the decor and ambiance is wonderful!! We made reservation on a Saturday evening, so we were seated right away. Chips and salsa was brought to our table and they were very good. We ordered the perfect margarita and it was very good!!! Two of those were enough for me! We ordered queso flameado and... More

Met here for drinks before a show. Ordered a grand gold Rita on the rocks and got a horrible drink for over $12 bucks. Maybe for dinner but drinks are terrible.

This revamped Ninfa's has been transformed into Pico's - a true Mexican restaurant. You can find Tex Mex here, but they focus on authentic Mexican cuisine.

We experienced wonderful service and food. Reservations made for a group of 7 the day before, staff called the day of the reservation to confirm. From the time we drove up to the front door we were treated with courtesy and respect. Staff went out of their way to honor our tight evening schedule. Food was delicious. I highly recommend...
