I have to say I always order the same thing every time I go and I love it! I just love their salad with black beans, steak and of course all the greens but I’m not a cheese person. So no cheese in my salad....More

Small place. Food was very good! Guacamole was excellent! They are moving to another location. Will probably visit the new place, sounds like they will be a little bigger.

This place is a little jewel! I shop at Home Goods next door and then eat at Mekenita. The food is fabulous! Everything has such interesting and unique flavors. Try the fish tacos or the chicken salad! Devine!

I do tip a little and I think that's appropriate. They make at least three trips to the table, one for chips and salsa, another for your order, and the third to clear the table.
