Not going there again
From no cheese on the quesadilla, mole sauce was really tomato sauce and just dark chicken meat, no cheese or black beans in my Cantina salad, to no toilet paper on either of the large rolls. So, not going back or recommending it to anyone.
Will not return
Disappointed with service from the time we walked in until we left. We were not greeted upon our arrival. Not certain if I received points as she was unaware of how open table worked and to my knowledge did not check us in. Just told us to sit anywhere. The hostess was also our waitress and was was interrupted while attending to our table. Food was fair. Restaurant does not serve coffee.
Finally a place with good queso!
I've been touring Mexican restaurants around the downtown area in search of some decent queso dip and chips. I've found several places that offer similar dishes (fundido's, queso-based but with chorizo, tortillas, etc.) but nothing that is just melted white cheese and tortilla chips. THANK YOU so much for making this option available, and within walking distance from my office!
As for the rest of the menu, it is fairly traditional Mexican but with some added flares. The chicken salad was exceptional, and the barbaqoa tacos were delicious. If you are looking for a nice pozole, however, it may be best to keep looking.
Will definitely be back for a happy hour to try out some of the bar drinks!
Table booking not considered
We had a very bad experience at this place: our table booking wasn't considered and we were squeezed into a tiny spot at the wall near the entrance with a lot of traffic. We waited more than 90 mins for our food and the service was not existent. Would NEVER go there again!!!
OMG- Mexican food in the Market!!
I happened in for happy hour and was SO happy that I returned for dinner and weekend brunch! The staff is super fun and friendly and the extensive happy hour menu is one of the best you'll find anywhere. All of the food is delish but i'm especially crazy for the veggie tamales; the fish, chicken and beef tacos and the San Patricio Platter. There is a great selection of beer (including Kells brews) and wine, but the real treat is their specialty cocktails - AMAZING (faves are the Irish Martini and the Caliente Seniorita) and they seriously serve the BEST Bloody Mary in town!
Besides the scenic and historic setting, there is a fun and festive atmosphere which suited both my large group of coworkers and my family dinner with small kids.
Lovely & relaxed
Nicely appointed space, relaxing atmosphere with personable service. The table up by the fireplace is a great little corner to catch up with friends over dinner.
Our server was extremely patient as we were slow to make our food choices and offered specific and honest recommendations.
Good variety of happy hour foods and interesting specialty drinks. My friend had the "John Riley" and gave it rave reviews, I tried the "Bitten Maiden" and will certainly go back for another.
I wavered between the chopped salad and pozole - went whit salad and will return to try the pozole. The salad was nicely balanced and very fresh tasting. My friend said his chicken quesadilla tasted good and liked the salad/cabbage slaw that accompanied it.
