For those looking for real Mexican food, NOT Taco Bell!!!!, this is the place. In the years since they have opened, my family has yet to have an unsatisfying meal here. Portions are reasonable, flavors are varied, and the menu is wide. While the award-winning Mole is storied, I am not a Mole fan, particularly. I prefer the enchiladas (with... More

We came again to celebrate my daughter's birthday- her pick​ because it's her favorite. The fajitas are amazing and the margaritas are, too. The staff are lovely people.

As locals, we have frequented Xicohtencati many times over the years. Outside seating is great. Good food and drinks. Never had a meal that wasn't excellent.

I am always willing to try new things and I am not familiar with authentic Mexican food. I asked about the mole. Was offered a taste and liked it, so I ordered it. The bartender asked me if I wanted chopsticks with it.... It took me a minute as I assume the best of everyone. Why would he ask me... More

We've been to Xicohtencatl numerous times now, and it is consistently an excellent experience. Delicious margaritas (there must be over a dozen variations to choose from) and wonderful gourmet Mexican food. It's definitely not Americanized Tex-Mex. The atmosphere is relaxed with outdoor porch seating available in warm weather. On our most recent visit I had Costillas de Puerco con Chipolte-an... More

This is a happy-feeling place, with great tequilas and menu options both familiar and unusual. We went on a Saturday evening and there were several large groups, many with small children. It's great to find an already-ski place that can take your whole party without fuss. The poblano mole with chicken was excellent, as were the guacamole, pork tacos and... More

We don't know if they have changed owners but it is not the same. Ordered fajitas, they came with 1 tortilla. Charged .75 a piece for each additional one. This will be our last visit.

My wife and I have been here three other times but not in over a year. Got there early after a hike to Race brook falls . Ordered a lava crock of Gaucamole , lot's of cilantro and tomatoes, it was very fresh and flavorful. Don't think they make the chips but were tasty just the same. They have a... More

My wife and I had never been to the Berkshires and wanted to check it out. We stayed in Great Barrington. We got there on a Friday night and wanted to find a restaurant. We tried to go to a couple different places but they were packed. My wife saw this restaurant as we drove by and suggested giving it... More
