I love this place! It looks just like your typical mid-west Mexican restaurant, but the food is sooo much better! I the salsa is great, the margaritas are very good- not too overly-sweet, and I am absolutely in love with "The Henry Burrito." Normally, I like to try new things when revisiting a restaurant, but I love this burrito too... More

I thought the chips and salsa were average. Salsa a little salty. I had tacos al pastor. It was good, not great. My husband had the fried chicken. That was great. Good service. Not a bad place to have Friday night dinner. Reasonably priced.

This place has become a habit that we try to make at least once a month. It's very good. I try something new almost every time. Tonight a ribeye off they specials.

Best tortilla chips ever! All their food is made from scratch. Delicious queso and enchiladas I have had in a very long time! On top of the yummiest Mexican food, The place is handicapped accessible and has outdoor seating. Great authentic Mexican food in the heart of St. Louis' Italian Hill District - brilliant! The also have a kids menu

I found the place by accident and glad that I did. The service was very friendly and my meal was amazingly fast. I felt that it was an excellent value and plan to make it a regular stop.

The Special Dinner is impossible to finish but my husband keeps trying. Eating goals. The ultimate margaritas are a must. My favorite dinner is the Carnitas.

My families waitor and every other employee in the restaurant had sad faces on the entire time we were there, down right stink eye faces. The food was terrible didn't even look edible. Don't waste your time and money.

For a Tuesday night, it was crazy how unorganized and slow this restaurant was. We waited 20 minutes for a table before we left, and during that time, saw MANY unhappy customers, some of who also got up and left only paying for their drinks. We left and went to another Mexican restaurant down the road, and received great service.... More
