My friend grew up in Mexico and I have lived in California and Mexico most of my life, so we know Mexican food. This restaurant was recommended as very authentic - the real deal. Overall, we were disappointed. The salsas and chips were good. They have several kinds of good homemade salsas - not just the standard tomato stuff. But the entrees were lacking. My friend ordered a fajita salad - which consisted of cold, dry, and touch strips of beef on salad. I had pork in a chile sauce that was insipid - and that meat was tough as well. The other dishes our friends ordered were better, but not what i would call "authentic." The waiter was indifferent and not very helpful. We spoke to him in Spanish thinking that he was having trouble understanding us, but that didn't change his attitude.
The restaurant was full and is supposedly popular, so maybe we were there on a bad night. Pretty pricey for the quality - For example, the bowl of tortilla soup was almost the same as an entree.
