Food was good, walking distance from our hotel. Service was above average and quite friendly and helpful. Didn't know how to make a Paloma so we settled for a margarita that was to sweet for my taste.

Authentic Mexican food! Street tacos are delicious, soft shell with steak onion and cilantro. The sancho burrito comes with lettuce, beans, sour cream, rice, choice of meat and topped with cheese. The salsa is great, not too spicy.

El Tapatio (formerly Patricia's) was a nice local restaurant that provided a great lunch without going to a typical chain. You are given chips and salsa as soon as you sit down at the table and your drinks are taken.

We stopped by in the afternoon due to weekend traffic can make this a difficult place to find a parking spot. A very popular place with the local crowd. They have a very nice building a lot of parking. If you don't feel comfortable with large crowds then stop by during brunch or in the afternoon. The chips are really... More

Very average Mexican American food in a comfortable family friendly atmosphere. Easy to locate and plenty of open tables on Saturday evening. Friendly staff.
