    The fun thing to do there is order a shot. They make a big production of it and bring the bottle out for you to appove, it comes in this unique glass sitting in a wooden rack, a second plate has a tomato juice or sangria chaser with salt. They can recommend something very smooth. It will actually prime your palate for those mole flavors….the overly sweet and sour flavors of a margarita …not so much.

      Hi Bluesquids – Aw, too bad we didn’t know about that! It sounds like it would have been fun to have that supreme tequila experience.

  2. Happy Birthday to your dad! I hope he enjoyed his dinner and the tequila!

    Happy bday to your dad! That’s cool that you were able to coincide this meal with his bday and try lots of items. I’ve heard of this place and went to their Del Mar location last year (I believe they’ve since distanced themselves from that location). I like my margaritas with fresh lime as well. The shrimp in the soup does look overcooked. When I researched the menu here some time ago, everything seemed to be pricey. Maybe their HH is the way to go to try out a few items. The steak covered in the cheese looks a bit heavy. And gritty flan – yikes. But regardless, it sounded like a fun relaxed dinner so that sometimes trumps bad food (I’m trying to be optimistic today) 🙂

      Thank you, Faye! We had a nice time at the restaurant even if I wasn’t totally blown away by it. Apparently we should have ordered a shot of tequila, haha. Happy hours are always a nice way to scope out a place.
