Which would you pick?

After hearing some bad feedback about Suenos on this board, I wanted to ask for suggestions for another Mexican place. I've thought of Mercadito, Hell's Kitchen, and Rocking Horse. For some reason, the idea of Rosa Mexicano bothers me but I'm not sure why and I probably shouldn't prejudge since I've never been. Just seems "coporate" in an odd way but if you guys think it's great, I'll give it a shot.

What do you guys think?

  1. Some other hounders like Hell's Kitchen, but we haven't had good meals there, nor have we had good service experiences. I'd vote Mercadito.

      I really like Hell's Kitchen - I've only eaten there once, but had consistently good take-out over 20 times....

    2. Mercadito is pretty good. I like the guacamole sampler and the steak tacos. Their margaritas are expensive but killer. Plus, you can sit outside which is nice.

      1. I like Mercadito. La Palapa is pretty good as well.

        1. Mercadito! But Esquinas is cool too.

          1. Mercadito's margaritas are indeed expensive, but some of the best I've had. The outdoor seating is better than Rocking Horse's as well.
