Did someone say "free margaritas?" – that's one calling card of these cantina-style Mexes, which offer "made-to-order" favorites “con mucho sabor” at "unbeatable" prices; though some say the decor "could use a little help" , "friendly" service and late weekend hours compensate.

I can't rightly comment of the authenticity so many look for in Mexican cuisine, but for my palette this place is the tops. The staff are very friendly, the food comes out hot and fast, and I've never had a bad meal regardless of what I've ordered. Also, for the amount of food you get the prices are surprisingly low. This location can get crowded, but I've rarely felt crammed in with other patrons. Pro-tip: Order a side of the mole sauce with your chips, it makes for a sweet and almost dessert-like dunking experience.

Parking at lunch time was impossible, but I don't hold that too much against the restaurant itself. However, upon entering, the entire place smelled like an outhouse because the bathroom was very close to the dining room and the place isn't well ventilated. It also wasn't very clean in general i.e. the menus felt dirty to hold. Once that smell faded, the food was pretty good. The green and red sauces they leave on the table allow you to spice things up if you feel they are bland. I think this place is a good fast casual restaurant but I wouldn't go here for a full 3 course meal. The selection is varied enough that veteran Mexican food eaters and first timers can find something to suit them.

El Limon in Amber is a charming Mexican restaurant serving smiles and delicious, freshly prepared food. Service was brisk, friendly and attentive. The food was very tasty and portions generous. I am already looking forward to the next visit. Give it a try.
