Was looking forward to dine here. We walk in to a very loud quaint atmosphere where we were sat (packed in like sardines). Waitress kept bumping into me when serving table behind us. Service was not great but not good. Food was ok except for...More

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...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...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...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

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...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...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...More
