    Get some huevos rancheros in the mix at Mercadito's weekend brunch. Order a la carte or do the Family Style Brunch Perfect Hangover Cure for $18 or go for the Ultimate Hangover Cure for $30.

    The Hangover Cure Brunch is a mega breakfast of 3 Mexican entrees plus a drink for $18. Another 12 bucks gets you their Ultimate Hangover Cure and unlimited drinks. Read more

    A great place to get a Mexican-fix any time of day, go for the all-you-can-drink brunch on the weekends or grab tacos and ceviche for lunch or dinner. If you want something quick go next door.

    Order the traditional guacamole to start, really fresh! For your entree, try the pollo enchilado, tasty (apparently it's one of their most popular dishes).

    Margaritas are good! The carnitas and mahi-mahi tacos are great. Not a fan of the ceviches but that's bc I'm Peruvian (we got amazing ceviches)

    *If* you like steak and eggs, have a large appetite, and want the biggest bang for the buck, get the "Estrellados y tampiqueñas". This is larger than most of the other dishes.

    Brussels Sprouts here are something to write home about. Get them, no questions asked. They are hands down some of my favorite sprouts in town!
  • Alexander M.
    Great quality mexican food - not remotely TexMex. I'd recommend the red snapper and shrimp ceviches and the chicken mole poblano soft tacos. Not to forget the best guacamole I've had in a long time.
  • Andrea L.
    Sit outside and enjoy! The auntie ox is delicious and refreshing! Also, the carnitas hash is to die for.....

    They have a drink called "THE HOTTEST DRINK ON EARTH" or VATO LOCO. Management makes you sign a release form before being served this lava-like libation. Call me if you do this tip. #crazyandcool
