My partner and I happened into Mixteco Grill on a Friday night without a reservation. It was early enough we got in after only a 20 minute wait. We enjoyed the sopes de tinga and fish empanada appetizers, but my partner -- who is Mexican -- commented that the sopes had nothing "tinga" about them. Add a side of rice or beans and either of these substantial appetizers would have made a reasonable meal. The chicken enchiladas with mole poblano were excellent, with quite a bit of cinnamon flavor in them; unusual but not bad. Crepas rellenas (stuffed crepes) with vegetables and a creamy poblano sauce were not as successful -- they were served lukewarm. Unlike another reviewer we liked the chips and the house-made salsa; the habanero sauce (for which there is a ridiculous $2.00 surcharge) is indeed very hot. The place is BYOB, and they appeared to be handing the beer and wine that people brought very well. There is a liquor store diagonally across the intersection. The main "difference" this restaurant offers is a choice of menu items not commonly found on standard Mexican restaurant menus even in very good places. If you're looking at good carne asada, chiles rellenos, etc., you don't Mixteco grill and its relatively high prices. But if you want to try something a little different, it's worth a visit.
