Try out the Tequila/Mezcal flight and taco tasting for two. You get three different mezcals and two tacos each. The tacos are totally legit. We got the yucateco (roasted pork), mole negro con pollo (chicken), camarón de mezcal (shrimp), and el silencio (braised beef tongue). We were very happy with the service, food, and atmosphere.

This was our second time here and it was better than the first (which was very good). We started our meal with the guacamole and chips and the house-tequila margarita (which we leaned, after reading the bill, was "happy hour" priced at $5 per drink). A healthy pour, $5 margarita is like receiving a thank-you gift for dining there. My wife tried the Chile Relleno en Salsa de Epazote con Camarón which was a bit too spicy for her tastes but was nevertheless delicious. The Tacos de Pescado al Cilantro were also tasty. Large chunks of grilled fish, mixed with grilled tomatoes and peppers filled the small tortilla shells. The only recommendation I would make is to improve the "edibility" of the taco by either grilling the blue corn tortilla to give it substance or doubling them up around the fish -- as served, the tortillas were warmed but quickly absorbed the chile guajillo salsa and split apart. Somehow, having to eat a taco with a knife and fork takes the fun out of it. The wait staff could not have been nicer or more helpful.

The service was great! The owner and the staff paid attenton to us and kept checking in to make sure we were happy. We wanted a coffee drink, we weren't sure which one and our bartender said, "Don't worry, I will take care of you". He surpised with a great drink. The Mariachis' were really good. Great evening and I recommend the experience.

I guess the highlight of this restaurant is the tequila. Came here tonight as I was craving Mexican food. I had the green enchilada camarones and it was not all that great. Since these were shrimp enchiladas one would expect actual shrimp in the enchiladas...but they were difficult to find. The enchiladas actually appeared to contain miscellaneous seafood, which was a disappointment. This place does seen to be a happening bar so perhaps stick with the drinks.
