One of the top three Mexican food restaurants in old town 7/21/2010

I would have to say this is one of the top three Mexican food restaurant in old town. The reason I say one of the top three is because none of them seem to be very consistent and I have had both good and bad experiences at several Mexican restaurants there. more

Awesome 10/18/2005

This cafe is great. The service is friendly and atmosphere is nice. Parking is terrible all around this area because of the tourists. I recommend getting there way before dinner to find a spot because of this problem. Also, you may have to wait a bit to be seated. Once you are finally there, you'll enjoy the awesome food and friendly service. more

Old Town Mexican Cafe 8/20/2005

The Old Town Mexican Cafe serves many unique types of coffes, you never have to try the same cofee twice! The prices are a little steep - but that is what you pay for some unique coffes from all around the world. Definatly recomended if you have the money. The employees are very friendly too. more

Great Mexican cuisine at a reasonable price. 7/18/2005

I've heard a lot of hype about this place, and Rachael Ray raves about the food on her Food Network show, $40-a-Day. The food is phenomenal, and the drinks to die for. The carne asada is rich, filling, and pleasing to hungry palates. The ceviche is yummy and can be a complete meal in and of itself. There's a kid's menu, music to serenade loved ones, and somebody who makes balloon animals for kids. Women in traditional Mexican dress stand by the windows and make fresh tortillas that come with your meal. If you plan to eat here, expect to wait for at least 20 minutes. It's well worth it. more
