We went on a Monday morning. Walked in and you can smell all the baked goods. We sat down and then had the mariachi band come over and play us some songs. Chilaquiles are delicious. Decor is overboard but fitting. Very colorful. Definitely check it out.

Been there a couple of times, and the only thing we can always remember is this place is too pricey for the quality you get. They have a very nice set up and it is a tourist trap, but I'm not 100% convinced. Sorry...

The beef in the fajitas was tender and delicious, the pico de gallo just right, as was the salsa. The margaritas were the best I've ever had in a restaurant and more reasonably priced that other places. The decor was definitely over-the-top but fun. Good service. The bakery is extensive and we took several kinds of pastries and candies with us. All were good, but the pecan pralines were incredible. They had just enough candy to hold the pecans together. The best I've ever had anywhere.

Yes this is a big tourist spot and yes there will be long lines, but we had a great time with an excellent meal.
We were given a buzzer and told the wait was about 30 minutes. With the buzzer, we could stroll outside without having to wait in the lobby. It buzzed after about 20 minutes so that was a pleasant surprise.
Our waitress seemed quite stiff at first, almost uninterested and bored. But to our surprise she quickly warmed up and was very good.
We tried a variety of dishes-salad, tortilla soup and mole. Is it the beat Mexican anywhere-I don't know about that. But we all enjoyed our dishes greatly with very good portion sizes. The prices are about what I'd expected-a little higher than if they were not a destination, but not outrageous.
The atmosphere is very festive and lively.
The bakery is also very busy and goes by pick-a-number. It provided some sweet treats as a very good ending to our experience.
