I really wanted to like this restaurant, having been to Oaxaca many times. There were many things to like: the tortilla chips are homemade and quite good. The rice and beans are fine. The homemade corn tortillas are delicious. Service was fine. But the chile...More

Here is my first tip, forget the chips and guacamole.... You get a tiny serving of chips and guacamole on a tiny plate with half guac and half pico de gallo..... It's not worth the 6 bucks...... I also had a problem with the margaritas,...More

After reading the great reviews I had high hopes. Pros - pint size margarita, salsa bar Cons - the mole negro pork rib was very small, overlooked, and came with just rice. The rice was mushy. I think there were at most 8 bites of...More

I don't care what the rating is, if you consider yourself a foodie and don't know Mezcal and Oaxacan cuisine you HAVE to eat here. Otherwise just a great Mexican restaurant, the flavors you have never had are here. Come and get it! The mole...More
