First time here and the food was very good. Arrived by taxi and were greeted by Alex and Jorge and taken to a table immediately. Alex asked what kinds of food we liked and disliked. We were asked if we would let them design a dinner for two. We did and it was one of best meals we have had in the area. The Margaritas were excellent. The atmosphere was great and be sure to stay untill gets dark out to enjoy the lighting and the big vine tree. Just ask and they will take a picture of you. Alex said they want to be famous and if they keep up this kind beverages, service and food they will be. We will be back again and again.

Take their recommendations. Trust me. Tell them what you like and let them go with it. Made great suggestions and had amazing service. Tried to go twice but they were closed on Monday..... oh well.

This restaurant is in front of Fajita Republic, another favorite that we frequent. Last night we treated ourselves to El Dinamita, which has the same owner as FR. We had a great time and Alex, the head waiter and his staff took great care of the five of us. We were greeted at the door by Alex who explained the menu and drinks arrived quickly. The food was excellent. Alex recommended that we entrust him to select our meal based on the size and likes & dislikes of our group. There was plenty of seafood for the seafood lovers and beef/chicken for the others.
We had a variety of drinks including, Mojitos, Margaritas and a brazilian drink similar to a Mojito that was recommended by waiter, Jorge. Jorge also suggested an after dinner shooter that tastes like Chocolate cake. The ladies really liked it! All in all a terrific time and nice departure from the typical mexican meal experience. It will be a tough choice for us in the future deciding between Fajita Republic or El Dinamita!
