I went here, and I thought it was nice, however not great-its one of those places trying to be something more than it is--- The location for the value, not so good- the taste was so so- the Salsa blah, the chips nah, not hot and fresh, they should be when you are trying to impress guest with this authentic mexican- small plates - and it just could be so much better if they didn't try so hard with the "authentic" and make it for real- hot, to order and load the plate !! We are paying for Authentic mexican - firsts time going mexican and no doggie bag, but the price was more than if i went down the street to la bamba
