This was my first time at Autentica. I went with a friend who is a regular and she had raved about it. Let me just say, the raves were spot on. First of all, the guacamole was OUTSTANDING. I could have made a meal of just that. We also shared queso fundido, carnitas and a mole. I had a delicious... More

We loved sitting outside on the patio. The vibe is super casual. We started with Sangria - not the icky, sweet junk you often get, but flavorful, tasty Sangria. The service is not speedy, but we were quite content to enjoy our friends and the lovely evening. The ceviche came out quickly and it was well prepared: fresh, piquant, and... More

Ate her last night on a whim... found it by a Google map search of nearby restaurants. I had the baby back ribs, potato salad, and beans which all were very, very good. My wife and son both had the two enchilada and chili releno dish which was amazing! I ended up eating half of my wife's plate and it... More

If the weather is nice, request a table on the patio and enjoy a lovely meal. The menu has lots of enticing choices, but the chilaquiles may be the best option. The service the morning we went was friendly and attentive, and we had a lovely brunch. We had made a reservation through Open Table, but they didn't seem to... More

Terribly slow, detached service, something is amiss at this spot that we used to love. Too bad-hope they can overcome whatever the problems are

Went to Autentica for Brunch and was very pleased. Good selection of breakfast and lunch type options, all fairly authentic in their Mexican inspiration. The chilaquiles and Tortas are fantastic, and the drinks are great. They also have a nice patio for when the weather is good.

Thursday's are the only days Autentica serves posole, a Mexican stew with hominy and shredded pork. The broth is delicious! They also provide the traditional plate of accompaniments that includes cotija cheese, diced radish and onion, herbs, limes, chips, taquitos and stuffed jalapeños. They serve it very much like you would find in Mexico. Great excuse dining out on a... More

Autentica is not your typical Mexican restaurant. While you will find some familiar items on the menu (a nice list of Mexican beers, for example), Autentica also offers a slightly more sophisticated take on Mexican cuisine than you will find at your local taqueria. The handmade corn and blue corn tortillas just fresh from the griddle are heavenly. It's very... More

I don't hand out excellent reviews easily but Autentica deserves the accolade. We visited there for an early dinner and were won over from the start. The quiet, cozy, colorful space sits next to two other restaurants on the corner of Killingsworth and 30th. We walked in at 5:00 on a Saturday without a reservation and were promptly greeted and...

And if I might make a suggestion I'd make a meal,of them. The appetizers, particularly the octopus are superb. The main courses are more basic and attempt,to fill you up for little cost...probably an authentic aspect of a Mexican restaurant. Treat this Mexican more like a Spanish restaurant and the appetizers more like Tapas. A bunch of them with a... More
