The food is truly great Mexican food and yet not really what you expect of U.S./Mexican food. So delicious and a lot to choose from. One of my favorites is Chiles en Nogada. My mouth is watering as I type this.

I got the mango shrimp dish, and it was delicious, if you are in the mood for something different and slightly sweet. The red chile sauce on the enchiladas was good, but too spicy for my 12 year-old (and we're from Texas, so she's not...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I am wondering when your restaurant will replace the ratty, worn and dirty menus? The plastic covers are separating and there is dirt wherever that happens. There are salsa splashes in them too. Those are such a turnoff when the food and service is so consistently excellent. We realize it costs $ but I think you might lose customers or get less than excellent reviews based on those old menus.
