New Mexican Restaurant in Phoenixville

I realize they just opened the restaurant this week but we were sadly disappointed in our first visit Friday night. We only waited 10 minutes for a hi-top in the bar which was pretty crowded. My DH ordered a Mexican beer and I ordered my usual tequila on the rocks. The patron was tasty but filled not even half a small cocktail glass filled with ice at a cost of $10.00 (for what I thought was no more than a full shot). The chips and three salsa's were good.

DH ordered Enchiladas Mexicana which were tiny but came with beans and rice. I ordered Enchiladas Rojas which were decent. Our major disappointment was that although the plates were hot, the food was lukewarm that became cold by the time you were finished the first half of the dish. We love our food temperature hot (even heat our plates at home) so this was disappointing. We could have sent the food back to be re-heated but it was near impossible to get a hold of our waiter. We added the complimentary salsa's to our food for more flavor as we thought the enchilada sauces were bland.

I thought the rice was very good, moist and flavored with onions. The beans good. The enchiladas should have included more meat for the price! We live within 12 minutes of this restaurant but will continue to go to other favorite mexican restaurants in chester county for the quality and price. However, we will give it another try at a later time.

  1. I've been waiting for this restaurant!
    Weird that they've done very little publicity. I don't get it.
    I hope they can work out the kinks soon.
