A waiter immediately came over to seat us. We asked for a table by the window and even though the area wasn’t open yet, he cheerfully seated us there. Our drinks were served and menus delivered quickly and with a smile.
The food offered is typically Mexican, from appetizers to dessert. I had a hard time deciding, everything sounded so good. We asked for suggestions and ordered.
We started with the Queso Azteca – breaded deep-fried cheese covered with a tomatillo sauce, sprinkled with sesame seeds, and served with flour tortillas. It was good, but the serving was small.
My main dish was the Huarache con Asada – a large thick tortilla with a ridge around it topped with grilled beef, covered with green sauce and sprinkled with sesame seeds and cilantro. I have had better, but the sesame seeds were a nice variation. It came served with guacamole and grilled hot peppers.
Libby had the Carne Asada Tray, which consisted of three grilled beef tacos sprinkled with grilled onion, cilantro and sesame seeds. It came served with guacamole and a very tasty salsa on the side.
Over all our lunch was pleasant. The service was great, the setting was pleasant and the food was OK, although overpriced considering the location and serving size. I wouldn’t recommend searching this place out but if you’re in the area try it.
