    Salmon Rostizado en Salsa Chipotle Mango was amazing! Melt in your mouth salmon and deliciously sweet. Carnitas Chipotle con Mango y Platano was equally amazing and very spicy. yummy margaritas!

    If you're looking to meet some cool new people and try out El Nuevo Mexicano, they’ve luckily partnered with Grubwithus.com to host a social dinner on the first Wednesday of every month.

    This is a great place for a date and the vegan offerings are awesome. There's a spicy vegan ice cream dessert, even.

    Make sure to order the appetizer guacamole and not the side order unless you want this tiny size.

    The food was good, but please note that they are NOT offering the foursquare free dessert special, despite it being listed and offered. Unfortunate practice on the restaurant's part.

    Better than most anything I've had in Pilsen. As a native Texan, I'm a huge fan of their enchiladas.

    Enchiladas are pretty standard. The Ceviche starter was not very good and came out after the entrees. The margaritas are good though.

    I just realized I never got the rest of my meal from this place! No tortillas, rice, or beans with my carnitas order. I'd kinda like my money back!

    Vegan stuff was good but they did not honor the foursquare special, which was kind of disappointing.

    Not good at all, server (Benny) was on his phone the whole time, bad english, hard time communicating to him and him communicating to us. Slow service. :(

    Food was good, not great. Chicken fajitas cooked well with seasoning. Sodas were waaaay under carbonated. So basically syrup. PLUS - they don't honor their foursquare special after you check-in!
