“Still one of the finer Mexican joints in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

Cabrito as the last reviewer noticed does indeed have the best mole that's not home made that I have had. Either the Enchiladas verde or the Mole Oaxena (sp) is outstanding.

My wife had the fried chicken plate which was huge and very good. Plan on left overs if you order this. My daughter ordered the filet mignon and since I was not allowed to try it I assume it was terrific!!

The Mole was about 85 peso, Chicken 110, and filet about 210 for a decent piece. I would not call this high priced at all for the quality and portions given.

The Salsa provided has a good kick that continues to burn for awhile so keep it light. I didn't!!! But it was good!! If you've never been to El Cabrito it is worth the visit.

“Best Mole in town!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

El Cabrito has been always been one of locals favorite places. The food is amazing! Even though the main attraction is their trademark slow roasted cabrito (baby goat), the homemade Mole is one of the best I've ever had, and trust me, I've had plenty. The last time I was there I bought one of the pre packed containers and brought it back to Houston. yes, it is that good!!!

“Costly and average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

We went on February the 14th wit my wife her sister and her partner.
Wine was OK but over priced, the meal, mainly goat, good but not excellent for the price.
The shrimps were small, normally the 'camarones', how they call it, are bigger.
The service was good but the guy who serves the wine needs a session how to serve.
in total : good but over priced.
