For me to use the word “outstanding” is an understatement. We started with the queso fundido which was tasty but need heat so the waiter brought out a habenero sauce and also sliced jalapeños which was perfect. The mole enchiladas were perfect. Perfect blend of...More

We shared a number of starters and mains. The guacamole and the queso were excellent. In addition the mole enchiladas were super tasty. Desserts were not so great. Service was super friendly and prices very reasonable.

We went on a weeknight about an hour before closing and the restaurant was empty, so I was still a little skeptical! But wow, we were pleasantly surprised!! From the Queso starter, to the enchiladas, to the incredible Mole sauce!

We really wanted to like this new restaurant, and given the Dallas location, had somewhat high expectations. The service was terrible. Our server didn't introduce himself, immediately just asked what we wanted. We ordered drinks- margaritas are very good. The service was very, very slow...More
