    Sabana Invierno is so good it has been my staple here for years! Also they do serve some mezcals but they are not on the drink menu so if you like that sort of thing all you have to do is ask :).

    The Serrano & Pollo Negro are two of my favorites. Also, the pomegranate margarita is delicious but very sweet. That being said, I haven't had a margarita or a dish here that has not been great.

    PRO-TIP: order a sauce sampler before your meal so you can try before you buy! Mole, nueva, chipotle, verde, adobado/sonora, guajillo and red sauce.

    Cheery family-friendly TexMex set back from El Camino Real (look for Statue of Liberty in front). Gets crowded / limited parking but is well worth the stop. Huge margarita / food menu.

    Pretty good Mexican food. I enjoyed everything I ate including the Sonora, pulled pork with adobo sauce. The diosa de la sol margarita was awesome! The service for our party was pretty good.

    Good atmosphere. The Mole was authentic and savory. The Triple X drink was excellent. Peach Maragrita was was too sweet an heavy and was overpowered with a nectar purée sourly sweet taste.

    Nice cozy atmosphere and great food! To top it off the al sol margaritas were amazing! Highly recommend for anyone looking to get away from mainstream Mexican cuisine.

    The Guajillo chicken was delicious -- tender and flavorful chicken. They also had Negro modelo on tap! Order it with lime. Guaranteed to make your day better.

    The Sopa Azteca is outstanding!! Order the cheese and tortilla strips on the side - you'll probably have soup leftover (and soggy tortilla strips aren't as tasty as crunchy ones!).

    Did you know that they have a dedicated Mole chef who comes in and spends his entire shift JUST carefully crafting his mole for hours and hours.

    If possible, make reservations. The atmosphere was intimate and the food delicious. Nacho chips and salsa were a plenty.

    It's the Big Sister of Fiesta del Mar and LA Fiesta. Slightly more upscale with the same great family recipes.

    Maybe I'm crazy but the guajillo chicken tastes like a really mild chicken tikka masala! Yum

    Stay away if you're not ordering the main dishes. Went here to get drinks and appetizers. Our bill was $200+. They asked our table to hurry up and leave.
