“Authentic Mexican Food and a well-paced dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Staff: Attentive and non-intrusive, knowledgeable
Food: Excellent variety of authenic mexican food. Flavorful, well seasoned, good portions of substance - not just loading yu up with rice an dbeans.
Pace is relaxed, suitable for an enjoyable evening out and conversation. Ambiance is nice, not too noisy.
From appetizers to desert - great selections and some uncommong dishes that don't idssappoint - try the Pollo Mexicana for a real treat!

“Mole sauce is fantastic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

I love Mexlican and have been know to go on a guacamole crawl. El Mariachi does great guac but we really go there for the mole sauce. I like the mole here as much as anywhere I've been and it's not killer hot. Oh and the sangria's pretty nice too!

“Love their margaritas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

This is one of my favorite places to get a spot at the bar, kick back a couple of amazing margaritas and eat their chorizo queso. Decadent but so delicious!
