Fodor's Review

Chef Carlos Molina's menu includes authentic Mexican dishes such as chiles rellenos (moderately spicy poblano peppers stuffed with cheese or ground meat) and chicken mole poblano (a sauce with many ingredients, including dried chili peppers, cloves, and bitter chocolate). The entryway is brightly painted with Day of the Dead figures and the dining rooms feature a long hardwood bar, Mexican glassware, and colorful ceramics. You can choose from tangy margaritas—if you order enough, they bring you your own personal tankard—plus a dozen different Mexican beers and 52 types of tequila. Reservations are recommended.
