Delicious, fresh, attractive and attentively prepared food in a beautiful setting. Chef-owned, so the food really is the main concern. Largely Mexican menu, but there are also offerings from elsewhere in Central and South America. Specials every night. Plenty of very tasty choices for both meat-eaters and vegetarians. Lots of atmosphere in a landmark Underground Railroad building close to Civic Center, OnCenter, Syracuse Stage. I've never had anything less than a delicious meal here. Smaller speedier lunch menu. A minor drawback - beer and wine only, no hard liquor (they're across the street from a church).

The Mission is where I take all my "out of town friends" to impress the he** out of them. With all the "chain" restaurants around, this renovated church is a pleasant surprise! Everyone is pleased with the service, food and the unique Margarita's - you've got try one - Its a "margarita without the bite"! (of Tequila) You can't beat a place that gets families on the the "early crowd" and gets well-dressed trend setters on the later crowd. Popular with locals for a downtown lunch - Yes, take your business clients here - it's great atmosphere and will not break the bank!
