“Good Food with Above Average Service”
Reviewed April 25, 2012

Needed a place close to the hotel, and the front desk staff recommended El Totito. Eating solo, I went into the bar area, where I was greated by the bar server with a basket of chips and spicy salsa.

I had the Mexican Caesar salad, and it had a great creamy salad dressing, with a strong flavor of cilantro. The chips were fresh and hot, and the regular salsa was nice and spicy.

I received great service and would return.

“Nice food in a busy restaurant.”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

My hotel recommended this restaurant to me. It was a 5 minute walk and a 15 minute wait for a table. The waiter was very professional in his manner as he explained the various meals and their ingredients to me - a new-comer to real Mexican food. The servings were generous and the food reasonably tasty, though more bland than I expected. Prices were very reasonable. Overall, a good choice in this area.

“A very good neighborhood family venue.”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

For an inexpensive, tasty family meal, try this one. I don't think you'll forget it, and will return whenever you're out shopping, or in the neighborhood at mealtime..
