Hmmm...When does being a nurse make someone a food expert? Oh, and growing up on Taco Bell doesn't make you a Mexican food expert either. I have eaten at Taqueria Nueve a million times, and I have to say, the guys at Taqueria Nueve know what they are doing in that kitchen. If you go out to dinner and expect to have your culo kissed like a spoiled princess, don't bother going to Taqueria Nueve. The average American palate would be disapointed with these authentic Oaxacan dishes -but mostly due to ignorance. It's without spicy red sauces, everything smothered in cheese, and sour cream on everything....Guess what? News Flash! That's NOT athentic! If you show up looking for chips and salsa, you won't like this place. If you want quality, authentic Mexican cuisine made with fresh, local ingredients - and authentic recipes that don't need correction by ignorant diners that know nothing about food, go to Taqueria Nueve. The drinks are great, the tacos are to die for, the empanadas (changed daily) are always perfect! Barbacoa is melt-in-your mouth slow braised lamb shank in chile broth...and the octopus cocktail is addictive for any seafood lover. This is only one of the vast array of real Mexican dishes there. Tres Leches cake is a hallmark dessert. I've had most everthing on that menu and never get tired of it. I'm a foodie, I'm a chef, and oh, by the way, I'm Mexican, too. So, don't let ignorant palates and narcissistic diners discourage you from this Taqueria, my friends....If you don't like authentic, fresh, tasty dishes from Mexico, made with the best quality ingredients, excellent drinks, and friendly (not perfect, but totally kick-butt servers) I'd advise you to stick to Taco Bell.
Pros: Everything's great...no complaints
Cons: Can be busy, but most quality restaurants have a wait
