No menus here. But don't be put off. The dinner is a 6 course tasting with a main course which is much Katherine than the haters. You choose your main ingredient and they advise you which sauce to have with it. Mainly locals in the place and pretty busy fro a Tuesday night. I guess it's very authentic Mexican because its nothing like you'd get in the taco restaurants. One critique would be the main courses are MASSIVE. I got throughout only half after all that had been before. Great fun thought. I forgot to mention the best margaritas I'd ever had.

Went here on a recomendation. Valet parking is $4 or street parking for $2. The restaurant is dark but comfortable. Seated quickly. No menus, you are served appetizers and the server will ask you your choice of meat then, based on your choice, the server will go over options on how that meat can be prepared ( ex: chicken with mole or salsua verde). Portions are large and add the apps and chips you will e stuffed. So dinner includes apps, enter, dessert. We had a pitcher of Margaritas ( not big) and total cost was $80 with tip. Food was deliscious.

The waiter puts on a genuine performance proudly and gloriously reciting the options, afterwards graciously detailing each dish a customer expresses interest in.
Then the courses begin, each one yummy, but of course all adding to a feeling of contentment and fullness before the dinner is done. No reason to despair: the leftovers taste just as good later in the week!

I've never been to anywhere like this place even in Mexico City. There is basically a set menu with a choice of mains which are described very theatrically by the waiter. Nothing is written down & it's all lovely. It's also very cheap at $25 for the meal. The margaritas are also great.

Only been here once but it was a time. The margarita's are absolutely out of this world. The food is really good and it's in a great location, but be ready for different type of night.
