Our large group received excellent service. The food was above average overall after enjoying guacamole appetizers and plenty of chips and salsa. The pitchers of margaritas helped but do yourself a favor and get the ones with better quality tequila. This is a neighborhood place near the Metra line and fits in like a comfortable shoe. We were glad we... More

I am surprised to see this considered upscale Mexican. The prices qualify as upscale but the food beginning with the overcooked chips and salsa was far below expectations. The chips and salsa were pretty bland and the spicy salsa wasn't the least bit spicy. We ordered our entrees and waited a long time for our food. When it finally came... More

Excellent upscale Mexican Restaurant. Just right portions of food, not like other restaurants that give you a weeks worth of food. Service is great, not sure who checked on us (Mgr/ owner?) but he was very friendly and made sure we were comfortable.

We came here for our anniversary with a Groupon. Im glad we had the Groupon or it would not have been worth it. The portions were pretty small. My husband ordered a borrito and it was the size of an enchalada. There were 3 spoonfulls of beans and the same of rice. Not sure if they were trying to save... More

Love the fact that you can get traditional Mexican food as well as creative new dishes that they regularly introduce. The staff are attentive as well. The food is great and the prices are more than fair. One of my favorite... More

This is a family run Mexican restaurant. They serve a complimentary mole salsa and chips. Their lunch offerings are great. They do a larger menu for dinner. Very affordable and lots of classic Mexican options.
