Extraordinary Mexican restaurant 11/18/2012

What a wonderful change from the ubiquitous Mexican restaurants that serve plates that all look alike - something with a tortilla, dry Mexican rice, and beans that run all over the plate. It was a wonderful experience. more

Heavenly 2/15/2012

I have lived in Chicago for 3 years and still have not tasted anything better than Salpicon. Chihuahua and cotija cheese with a sweet-spiced roasted tomato sauce is sinfully delicious! Homemade, delicious flavors. The other pastries are great as well. This is the good Mexican restaurant for pastries in Chicago. Highly recommend this restaurant. The service is excellent and portions are very fair for what you are paying. I have eaten more prime beef in my life than anybody I know. The beef is excellent. This could be a best Tequila Bar at Old Town Chicago. I have eaten here more than a dozen times (usually at the bar), and I have never been disappointed. more
