    Haven't been there in several months, but I wasn't blown away, especially for the price. The food was good, but not particularly special. I think we reserved (?), or maybe just adjourned to a nearby bar for the (long) wait--sorry, can't remember. Regardless, it was packed and extremely loud once we were seated. If you're really set on it, definitely call ahead (asap) to see if they'll take a reservation.

      Delicious and attentive service, but not a good choice for group 10 on saturday night.

      Must order items -

      Brussel Sprouts with Chorizo
      Red Chili Short Ribs: braised in chili rojo, served with pickled vegetable salad, warm tortillas & crema
      Mole Poblano: traditional dark red mole with slow cooked 1/4 chicken, mexican rice & warm tortillas

        It's a pretty small restaurant, but I don't think they've been doing great business lately, so there's a good chance they'd accommodate you.

        Re: food, the cabrito is inconsistent and often not very good / oversalted. But I've had pretty good luck with the lengua and fish tacos. Drinks are inventive and decently mixed.
