The food at Isalita is really tasty. Guacamole with truffle oil, yum. You do have to be explicit if you want vegan food, as not all ingredients are marked (e.g. side of beans arrived with surprise cheese on top). Portions are a bit oddly sized...More

Great Mexican in the Midwest? Who would've thought? In all my travels, it is the one type of food I stay away from given my So CA roots. But, I call a spade a spade when I get it. This place is fantastic. The chips...More

This place was packed , but we found the food kind of underwhelming. Too sweet, not enough kick. I guess people go for the drinks and the atmosphere----
