For appetizers we ordered chicken wings and seitan wings. The chicken's dry rub was good, but the protein itself was cooked to a consistency that one might call ""slimy."" The seitan on the other hand was nicely flavored and crispy. We also had chips and salsa, which any Mexican restaurant should be able to do. It came with 2 salsas: smoked and verde. The verde was an abomination: ground up tomatillos...no salt, no spices. The ""smoked"" one was far from smoked- just chopped tomatoes, onions and a bit of cilantro and salt (essentially a basic pico de gallo found at a condiment bar). I ordered from the ""Texas"" menu with the wagyu beef brisket and ribs with spicy sauce. The sauce was good, and the meat was smoky,moist,and mostly acceptable. The brisket however was very fatty. My boyfriend ordered an $11 barbacoa burrito and upgraded to the plato for an extra $5. When one thinks of a $16 burrito meal you'd imagine a formidably sized mexican wrap with all the fixins. This alleged burrito turned out to be two finger-sized tortillas (slightly larger than a 7-11 taquito) with a tablespoon each of what tasted like dry shredded pemmican meat crammed into only one end of each little tube. There was nothing else in these odd little ""burritos""- quite literally, the only ingredient beside the meat was a flour tortilla. The rice and beans addition to this ""meal"" were mushy, unseasoned, and revolting in appearance, texture and flavor.
Pros: mostly good smoked meat, decent atmosphere if you don't mind hipsters
Cons: service, value, food selection, ""mexican"" menu
