    Great mole. Tortas are large, messy & good.

    In Bay View, I would get my Mexican food from GTO's. I will now be getting my Mexican from Riviera Maya. Just as good, if not better and not nearly as greasy. I'll be back.

    Try the mole taster. They are all awesome! And as a Mexican mole snob, they are also 100% authentic. No Texas here!

    Want something tasty and interesting? Try the non traditional dishes. We tried two vegetation dishes that were awesome.

    They do not want to put beans in your enchiladas for some reason. But the moles are delicious! Try the mole sampler.

    Everything was delicious… the dark mole with chocolate was outstanding! Can't wait to go back and try more.

    LOVE the chile rellano! Not fried = perfectly delicious! So good I googled how how to make it & make my own at home, but not as good as Riviera's! Amazing!

    A+. The chicken mole and shrimp with pipian verde compare to what you'd find in Oaxaca Mexico. A+ guacamole too.

  • Matt K.

    Don't be afraid to get the Xel-ha meat combination. It will be a party in your mouth.

    Francisco, the manager, is completely useless.

  • Christian L.

    This is easily the worst restaurant I have been to in years. The service was absolutely terrible. The food was okay, although I never received my order...I settled for some leftover steak tacos.

    Christian L. · August 22, 2010
  • Aran A.

    Highly recommend the nachos xe-la filling appetizer at a low price

    Aran Arms · July 20, 2010
  • Halley K.

    did this... often...Mole appetizer is a must.

    Halley Karas · May 11, 2010
  • Maria T.

    The chocolate Tres Leches cake is to die for!

    Maria T. · May 3, 2010
  • Monica C.

    The tortilla soup is legendary.

    Monica Cloutier · February 18, 2010
  • William R.

    Make sure to ask for the Xelha combination as your choice of meat for the "antojitos" or "tortas". They also make one of the BEST tortilla soups I've ever had.

    William Ramirez · January 9, 2010
  • Barbie N.

    One of the best Mexican restuarants in town. The tortilla soup is fabulous!

    Barbie Nelson · January 8, 2010

    margaritas are super strong (but super delicious)
