The restaurant is small on the inside (compared to what you might think from the photos) but it's visually beautiful, clean and very neat. The FOOD IS AMAZINGLY DELICOUS! I can't stress enough how delicious the food was! Highly recommended!

So my wife and I are always looking for new places to eat. I happened to run into this place by pure accident. Best surprise I could've gotten. We made a reservation for this past Friday night. Let's start with the customer service, absolutely phenomenal. We were actually got caught in traffic and they were super accommodating about pushing the reservation back.

We go the the restaurant and it was another great surprise, the place has wonderful mixed vibe of old world decorations with modern feel with the bar and the music. I will say the place isn't huge so if possible I would recommend a reservation.

We got the evening started right with a pitcher of white sangria. This was a very light and potent sangria. It was a generous size pitcher, and reasonable price of $26. I'll admit we ended up ordering a second pitcher it was so good.

For the food, we ordered the freshly made guacamole and home made chips. The guac was nice and chunky, and great taste. The chips were thin, chruncy and not overly salted. I ordered the shrimp enchiladas and my wife ordered the shrimp quesadilla. We both ordered the Elites de Feria (street corn). The corn was to die for, it had the perfect amount of chilli and the cheese. The quesadilla itself had an authentic corn taste. The shrimp were moist and tender. The enchiladas were authentic and flavorful. If you're looking for authentic food, then this is definitley recommended.

While my wife and I were enjoying each other and the food, the staff was super attentive. The bus boy would hover around the place and make sure everyone was taken care of. Our waitress was also super attentive. We ended the evening with a complimentary taste of their homemade tequilla. Let me tell you, it was the smoothest tequilla I've ever had.

We walk out of the place absolutely satisfied. This place has made it into our rotation of places we will continue to visit.

Would prefer tip to not be included with the total bill... Server was a bit forgetful and unattentive.

I loved this restaurant! We were warmly greeted. The server brought out chips and salsa. The chips were warm and fresh and, bonus, gluten free - made in a separate fryer. My friend and I had drinks - a mojito and paloma - well executed and refreshing. I had the ribs in tomatillo and serrano sauce. The ribs were falling off the bone and the sauce was nice and spicy without being overwhelming. My friend also enjoyed her entree, which was vegetarian and featured pumpkin. The food is fresh, beautifully presented and authentically Mexican. A winner.
