Maybe they were having a bad day! The service was not so good and the food was just okay. The best thing is the fried taco! I think there is better Mexican food to be had in Kansas City and better service. The tacos, though...awfully good! On another visit, I would sit at the bar and just order margaritas and... More

I recently had lunch at this tucked away restaurant. The restaurant is located on a one way street and does have free parking located about a block south of the restaurant. The service was wonderful, and the prices are reasonable. It was not very busy on the day I visited and the only disappointing this was the food came out... More

Went here with friends for dinner after a conference. Walked to the restaurant from hotel and found it easily. Small and cozy dinner room. Feel of a neighborhood place. Had quesadillas with beef and typical sides of refried beans and Spanish rice. Quesadillas had ground beef which was a little different from other quesadillas I've had but nicely spiced and... More

I have eaten here several times for lunch and recommend eating on the upstairs patio. I had good service and food and would visit here again.

In town for a nearby conference and headed here early on a Saturday night. Was very quiet c. 6pm , but by the time we left sat around 7:30pm it was nicely busy. Cheap and plentiful food, tasty too. Great service and interesting beer - a solid, good value place to grab a bite to eat with friends.

This restaurant did an incredible job taking care of our large party of 24! I made reservations ahead of time and they put us on their 2nd floor. We had one waiter taking care of all of us and he was amazing! The food was great. I had grilled shrimp and chicken. Beans and rice. Would definitely go back.

This was not the first time I've been to Teocali, but it was the first time to go for lunch. There were 3 of us dining and the restaurant was not busy. The girl waiting on us didn't place our appetizer order, wasn't attentive, brought the wrong pork burrito and forgot one person's drink. Aside from that, I must rave... More

This is just up the street from where I work, so maybe I am biased, but they have some of the best Mexican food in the city. And it isn't just served in little portions either, they are just huge! My wife and I usually share a plate and there is more than enough to fill us both. From the... More

This place doesn't look like much from the outside, but head upstairs for seating, and enjoy some great Mexican food

This small place in an out of the way area, but near Union Station, has excellent service and some of the best Mexican food I have ever had. We had the sampler type appetizer plate and a cheese quesadilla. Who knew a plain cheese quesadilla could taste so good!
