The Zagat Review
Definitely “not Tex-Mex” , the “very authentic Mexico City food” served at this arty, contemporary cantina in Montrose is “something a little different” ; though service is not a strong point, the atmosphere is “fabulous” , leading fans to say it “should be packed at all times.”

4/5 My single complaint is that the only possible food that guests could order was appetizers and brunch. The bartender offered a short explanation but i wasn’t listening. The rest, however is spectacular. Right away you feel the culture of the restaurant encompass you via the live band playing authentic Mexican music. They never miss a beat and never shy away from a smile. You are greeted by a kind hostess who tells you your options for the night and if you are unlucky, there will be a wait. The drinks at the bar are exceptionally tasty; never before have I had a margarita using Jamaica but let me say it was wondrous. The food we were able to purchase presents itself with a kind of authenticity the likes of which the Montrose area has never encountered. I highly recommend this restaurant for great food, great service, great music and a great time.

We came for brunch about a month ago. It was super busy, which is great to see. I have to be honest and say that the prices were a tad ridiculous. My dish consisted of beans and eggs and two tortillas I also got a brunch cocktail. All in all I paid just a tad under 40 was good, but those ingredients do NOT justify the prices. The place itself was amazing though. The service was also attentive.

Armando the bartender is so wonderful! Thursdays is an abbreviated menu. They actually use the brunch menu on one Thursday of the month, so just be aware. But there was live music so that was a nice touch.
