We dined as a family group of friends. Two of the group were past customers, and raved about it. O, we stood in line for 45 minutes until they opened for dinner. FABULOUS. Excellent service, excellent appetizers and margaritas, and excellent entres. Do order the Etote corn dip appetizer. I had the smoked pork cheeks on "grandmas" corn cake, with buttermilk/cumin sauce. Yes, I highly recommend this restaurant!

While I am not the biggest fan of Mexican food, but my wife is, so this is her writing. I was very pleased with the menu and the quality of food. Drinks were good and I server was very knowledgeable and polite. On a different note, I hate the idea of a popular restaurant not accepting reservations. I hate the idea that if I do not get there when the restaurant opens it may be a 90 minute wait to be seated.

My wife and I had an AWFUL experience at Elotes yesterday. We got there 45 minutes early so we could wait first in line to get a choice table with a view after traveling several hours from out of state. We were meeting another couple who had just bought a home in the area, so we wanted to get a great table to celebrate with them. By the time doors opened there were many people in line behind us. To our shock and dismay the manager and girls at the front desk would not allow us into the restaurant to be seated because our friends had not yet arrived from parking. They very rudely refused to allow us to be seated and made us move aside while everyone behind us passed by us to be seated. We left dejected and demoralized after having waited so long to be first in line for our favorite table. VERY RUDE. We will never go back there again nor will our friends. We are telling all our friends who are also shocked and say they will never go there again.
