I reside in Chicago and am thus spoiled with good Mexican fare. My principal complaint is not with the food per se, but with value. Indeed, if the prices at this little Mexican joint were a bit more reasonable, it would likely garner a more positive review. That said, the food does not justify the $25 that you will pay for each main dish. I ordered the chile relleno and was underwhelmed. The dish was a bit too bland and the ingredients simple; I would happily pay $10 for a dish of this quality. My other principal complaint is that they served bread before our courses. I expect chips or tortillas or something a bit more traditional at a place serving Mexican fare. On the bright side, I did not have a problem with mosquitoes as other reviewers noted and the ambiance was nice (though the dining room was a bit dark). The desserts were also good. Still, these redeeming qualities in no way justify the $35-45 you will pay per person for two dishes and a drink.
