We have been going to El Gitano since it opened in Mount Vernon. The food has been pretty much standard Mexican fare, not bad, not outstanding. BUT LATELY things have changed.
I like a place where I can speak Spanish, and certainly this is the place. But now I can order some of the same dishes I used to eat in Guadalajara. Carnitas, pozole....and the other day I wanted a spicy chili verde. The very friendly waitress said that it usually wasn't as spicy as I obviously wanted it, but she could fix that. And indeed she did. That was the first time we had eaten in the cantina section, it was great.
It you haven't been there in awhile, give El Gitano another try.
