This small place in an out of the way area, but near Union Station, has excellent service and some of the best Mexican food I have ever had. We had the sampler type appetizer plate and a cheese quesadilla. Who knew a plain cheese quesadilla could taste so good!

This place offers great cuisine and an amazing views of the city on the 3rd floor roof top. Oh yes and the food is amazing as well...service was second to none... Would recommend this place to everyone...

Nothing really good or bad to say about this place. I came here for lunch and it was just average. Nothing I will crave to go back for.

Having read the many other reviews of what a great place this was, we were all anxious to try Teocali. My wife and I, and another couple went today for an early dinner and drinks. We were in the area after dropping my daughter off at a wedding. We arrived about 4:45 PM on a Saturday. The place was very... More

Tacos were good. Not up to Mexican standards but I will definitely eat there again. I really enjoyed the authentic Mexican vibe. Service was fast and nice.

I went to this restaurant, which is located a couple of blocks from my office, on Cinco de Mayo. It is important to keep that in mind while reading this review. We had a group of 12 people and we got there plenty early to get a large table together on the roof. It was a beautiful day and we... More

When my family and I crave Mexican food AND want to escape our safe and sterile JOCO bubble, we head to Teocalli. The neighborhood is adorable, the staff is friendly, and the food is tasty. I'm a sucker for a family-owed business and that is exactly what this is. On weekends they offer posole, but it does have a tendency... More

One block south of Truman Medical Center and Children's Mercy Hospital, which may explain why they have been in business for several years. It's not because of the food or service, which are mediocre. Think Taco Bell, without the wrapper. Good drink choices, though--unless you have to go back to work!

Thank Runpicu
