We came here after seeing a great rating on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed! The pollo con mole is delicious, and boudin azteca carne-excellent. Our service was flawless; and the chocolate cake shouldn't be missed. We would highly recommend! Glad we chose this place!

Excellent non-Tex Mex mexican food. Some supprising menu choices. Seafood items are excellent and sides require more than one visit to sample.

This is not true Tex-Mex; rather it is mostly dishes from the mainland of Mexico - all extremely good. Prices are reasonable and wait staff very nice. However, noise level is excessive.

The place is very pleasant and has great atmosphere. Our family was expecting a different type of food. It was rather soup like and not that filling.

Fun place! Very good atmosphere service, and food. Mex-Mex more than Tex-Mex. Interesting and traditional dishes. Tasty!

Both the food and the margaritas were amazing. The fresh guacamole was really enjoyed by my company. Highly recommend this place, when visiting Dallas.

This is a fantastic spot in the heart of the Arts District with delicious Mexico City type food. Everything they serve is great, their hot sauce is the best! We typically walk there in the summer and fall months.
