Came with the family to celebrate my granddaughter’s 18th birthday. She selected this restaurant. The food seemed really authentic especially the mole sauce.

My fiance is basically an authentic mexican cuisine aficionado, non of that overly cheesy gooey stuff, fresh ingredients, well seasoned - and that is exactly what we got here. We had read about it in an online article and it did not disappoint. The margaritas...More
