    1) GET THE CILANTRO MARGARITA! 2) ASK FOR THE HOMEMADE HOT SAUCE (it's pink/light orange habanero sauce. Super hot. Super delicious)

    Went with Mexican friend. Pretty authentic. And amazing drinks too. Huge portions. So order thoughtfully. However think before asking them to make your food spicy. They add some very strong chili

    The tortilla chips here have morphed from awful to awesome over the last few years. If you tried them and disliked them, try again.

    Get an Ilegal Mezcal if you are man enought. The Tortilla Soup is amazing. If you ask for the Pollo con Mole Poblano tell then to skip the fries and put some mole on the rice, you'll love it!

    Try to get a table by the windows so you can overlook Market Square. Also, make sure to try the queso and chips. Sangria and margaritas are delicioso!! A must try!

    Tania is a phenomenal server. The potatoes are TO DIE FOR. Favorite Mexican joint in the city, hands down.

    The margaritas will rock your socks. The tacos del guero are amazing, but have a kick. For a little milder option, order the tacos checandole

    I gave this place 3 chances to impress me. I won't be back. Food is not even as good as Taco Bell. Worst tortilla soup ever

    The queso is amazing and the tacos are pretty good! Just don't ever expect to see your waiter again after he takes your order. The service is pretty bad.

    I could bath in their queso sauce. It's that good. The fish tacos were delicious too. Just the right amount of cabbage and sauce. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    During big events they might kick you out of your table after you pay, but they are super busy and they do let you just migrate to the bar.

    Order a glass of horchata (cinnamon rice milk) and drink it ICE COLD. It's not on the menu but its worth trying!

    The food was very good. Get the chips and queso. But the service incredibly slow. Nearly 2 hours for dinner!
