“Mostly excellent food at moderate prices. I like their Bloody Marys, but don't recommend their wines. This place closes early due to city regulations and it is seriously noisy in the dining rooms. If the weather is cool, try to sit outside. The back room can sometimes be quieter than the front room. The lunchtime buffet on weekdays has unlimited guacamole, if not all my favorite entrees. Menudo (an acquired taste) is offered on weekends. The albondigas is filled with yummy vegetables. The salsa has a goodly capsaicin authority. Too spicy for me, perfect for my husband, and nuclear for my son. It comes gratis with the obligatory fried chips. Menu entrees include Californian-Mex favorites. The Mole sauce poured over either chicken enchiladas or breasts is a fairly good variant of Mole Poblano (my culinary holy grail). The guacamole is excellent, but don't order it unless you're seriously hungry and NOT getting a molcajete. The molcajetes are outstanding (pull that huge green pepper out right away or suffer serious capsaicin effects!) and served in huge portions. Here's where you really need those take out containers and the sheathed paring knife (front of the kitchen utensil drawer) packed in a shopping bag (corner of Great Room). Order the Molcajete Supreme ($25) and ask for an extra appetizer plate. You'll need this for cutting up the nopalitos and green onions. You will be asked whether you prefer flour or corn tortillas. Set the tortilla chips aside leaving the center of the table clear to accept the ultra hot volcanic bowl on its stand. When it arrives, pull out the monster pepper and set it aside on the tray under the bowl. You will also receive a container of tortillas and a plate of rice and beans. This will crowd the table. Now take that ultra sharp paring knife and cut up the green onions and the strips of cactus into bite sized pieces on that appetizer plate you asked for. Add the cut-up pieces back to the bowl and stir with the spoon. The chunk of white cheese should melt, but you can cut it up along with the avocado half. Set your used appetizer plate aside and put the plate with rice and beans in front of you. Wipe the knife off, re-sheath it and put it in your bag. Now you FINALLY get to eat this monster. Hold a tortilla in your left hand and fill it with a bit of rice and beans, then spoon in some of the molcajete mixture. Roll it like a burrito and eat carefully (thermally hot). You call always request more tortillas (free). Pace yourself, the meal is deceptively filling, and it's easy to gorge since it took so long to get it into your mouth. I pack up what's left and get three more meals out of it.”
