After seeing this restaurant on "Throwdown" with Bobby Flay I had to try it. Up front let me say I travel to Mexico 3 to 4 times a year for Business and have been doing so for the past 14 years, so I am very familiar with "Authentic" Mexican food. I saw the rerun of the Chili relleno throwdown from 2008 and decided to check it out.
First off I was shocked when I walked in there. This is not the restaurant that was see on the show-BEWARE. They must have shot the show at another restaurant. This place is trashed and not what Is pictured on TV. Second, there is no Cactus garden next door where supposedly these guys visit daily to use fresh cactus for the meals. Third, the CHILI RELLENO was horrible, the cactus used was definitely canned and not fresh, the red sauce was horrible and totally threw off the dish. I was so excited about going to this place that we ordered, Chilli Relleno, Flauntas, Tres enchilladas and Carne Asada. We ordered a lot so we could really enjoy the "Real Authentic Mexican food", and so that we could taste a variety of what they specialize in. The best thing we were eat was the Creamed Corn soup that came with our meals. The Mole was not impressive, I am so disappointed. It's sad, very sad. I could have gone down the street to "Guelaguetza Restaurant" and had better Mole.
Oh and by the way you had better make sure you have cash on you as they do not accept anything other than cash
