Guacamole prepared tableside was yummy. Appetizer of nachos so good they should be considered an entree. Mole sauce rich with just the right amount of spices. Found table for 6 worked beautifully for our party. Waiter was superb.

The salsa is probably the best in the area, worth the trip alone. The enchiladas are very good, though I get a different answer whether the rice can be made vegetarian. Service is fast, especially during the lunch rush.
