Really nothing special. So unless you just have to have Mexican food, suggest you choose among better places walking distance away.

We were really hungry and went for a late lunch. The food was excellent. Guacamole made fresh at the table in front of us. Fresh ingredients and great taste. Imaging the atmosphere is great at night time. The service was great with waiters being attentive.

Consuelo will not accommodate any of your dietary needs. They tell you that it comes the way it comes, & they will not make any changes, even to leaving onions out or changing the vegetable that comes with the meal. The greet staff and wait staff are arrogant & try not to notice you when you enter. This was a... More

Walked by and saw the table-side guacamole and I was sold. We were told it was a 25 minute wait, but it was actually less than 10. The fajitas were amazing! I shared with my 12 year old who loved the chorizo. It was very expensive but delicious.

I asked to go eat at a Mexican restaurant and my friend bought me here. The chips and salsa were great! Margaritas were watery. Shrimp tacos were just okay. My friend liked her salmon tacos.

Great service and great food. I had tortilla soup which was lovely and followed up with chicken enchilada en mole which were good and made with quality chicken. Staff were busy but attentive. Will certainly return.

They have lots of different mescal drinks, the Oaxaca favorite. It's old Mexico inside, and they make guacamole at your table, and have terrific fish.

When we arrived, they seemed annoyed we had children with us. They were also completely un-accommodating for the children when it came to finding a suitable lunch option for them. Service was slow, though the place was practically empty. And, they somehow messed up my lunch and had to re-make it. It arrived after everyone else had finished eating.
