Fodor's Review

Don't feel uneasy about trying the unmarked double red doors to get in, you will be well rewarded inside. Mexicano's has an edgy atmosphere from the artwork and imported lampshades peppered with real bullet holes. The menu delights with reasonable prices and dishes designed to be shared. If you're on a budget, or just want a great snack try the taco with cumin battered market fish, salsa mojito, and coriander. They whip up some exotic "Cocteles" at the bar and make great frozen margaritas. Come early with kids; youngsters are catered to with a tasty, nutritious kids menu up to 6:30 pm.
