Not so impressed
Posted on 01 / 25 / 2008
I've heard the locals rave about this restaurant, but as a Texan, I was raised on Mexican food, and this restaurant is not so impressive to me. First of all, it's my first experience with a Mexican food restaurant in which you have to pay for chips and salsa (and they are not cheap). Second, the food is relatively expensive. Finally, I wasn't impressed with the quality of my food. I'm sure I'm just a mexican food snob, but for the prices I paid there I believe I ought to be blown away. I simply was not. Like the above reviewer mentioned, it is a very small space and the wait for a table can be long. However, the flip side of that is a cozy little space with a pretty cool feel to it. My waitress was very friendly, though over-worked. In short, I enjoyed the environment and the service, I didn't enjoy the food or the prices. Again, the locals seem to love it - I don't. Color me a Mexican food elitist.
friendly staff, nice environment
expensive, mediocre mexican food
