“Nice selection on menu, very friendly service”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

This is a great addition to the Desert restaurant scene with a more interesting menu than most. I'm not sure I've ever seen chile en nogado in the US. This delicious pepper covered with walnut sauce is even rarely found in Mexico; Frida's was especially good. Chili colorado is also very tasty. We haven't tried the mole yet, but hear it is a good choice and will try it next time...we'll definitely be back. Staff is friendly and attentive and colorful interior is pleasant.

“Good: mole. Bad: $13 margarita”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

We went on the official opening night Some expected kinks but not bad They charge for chips and salsa, unlike most Hispanic places. My husbands margarita was overpriced ($13) and unremarkable. His chicken mole was terrific. Their sides of creamed rice and black beans are very good. I found my spinach enchiladas to be too "sharp" tasting. Told waiter and did not finish them but was charged. When a manager type later asked about dinner, she removed the charge
Dessert was a flan/chocolate concoction Venue is warm and pleasing in the Mexican style. Co- owner very gracious Bar looked inviting
