“Great if you love overpriced Mexican food!”

The place has nice ambiance, but it is wayyy to pricey, like most places as the Americana. If you really want to go, just get an appetizer and take off to another spot for dinner. The sweet corn tamales are tasty, but again too $$$$ !

“Enjoyed dining on the outdoor patio”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

My husband and I came by for a late lunch on a weekday so crowds were not a problem. I think timing is everything as I can imagine this place would be crowded and noisy on a weekend. We decided to sit outside in the patio, which was very pleasant. The two salsas were smooth (not chunky) -- one red and one green -- and both were quite tasty. The two taco plate had four styles of meat to choose from (chicken, carnitas, beef, al pastor) and I chose beef and al pastor, both of which were delicious. The plate came with rice and beans and was a good value at $8.95. They also offer a five taco tasting plate at $12.95. The service was excellent and the staff checked back numerous times to see if we needed refills. I have dined once inside and once outside and prefer the outdoor patio. We will definitely return.
