We decided to try Mexico City Gourmet because in one of their ads they mentioned that they were rated best of something-or-other in 2007. I love Mexican food, so even though we try not to eat out very often, we thought we'd go there for our saturday night out. \r
I am SO annoyed that we wasted our money at this place. They stuck us at a crappy table, and then proceeded to ignore us for about 10-15 minutes (we didn't even have glasses of water). The waiter finally showed up, took our drink orders and then it was at least another 5-8 minutes before those showed up, even though we were practically right next to the bar. The salsa and cheese dip both tasted like they had come out of a jar. The margarita was OK. I figured that the entree food would perhaps compensate for the lack-lusterness of everything else, but alas, my hopes were dashed! My chicken enchiladas with mole sauce were perhaps the most uninspired and bland meal of my entire life. Seriously- the chicken wasn't seasoned or anything, it was utterly devoid of flavor. My boyfriend ordered #17 and said it was at best, ""just OK"" and that it seemed as though all the flavor had been boiled out of it.\r
And all the while, we kept having to flag our waiter down, to get napkins, Texas Pete sauce (so I could doctor up my enchiladas to some semblance of flavor), etc. It was pretty much a terrible dining experience and I cannot fathom what any of the people who wrote this place good reviews see in it. \r
Don't waste your time or your money!
Pros: Umm...hard to say...Mariachi band? Actually, it was just a guy with a guitar.
