Before Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger spiced up cable TV with Too Hot Tamales, they opened this vibrant, cavernous, and muy loud space that's packed every night with locals and tourists. This is not your Combo #7 kind of place. You'll get things like freshly made corn masa filled with tender roast duck, guajillo chile sauce, and roasted sweet peppers, or plantain empanadas with chipotle salsa and Mexican crema, the uber-tender roasted lamb tacos with strips of poblano chiles and manchego cheese. If it's on special, order the grilled chicken enchiladas verdes simmered in green mole sauce with Oaxacan cheese and hand-rolled corn tortillas. To join in on the nonstop fiesta, start with one of their superb margaritas or mojitos. Tip: The happy hour menu (Mon-Fri 4-7pm, Fri-Sat after 10pm) has tasty $3 treats such as tacos, empanadas, and tostadas; and margaritas are only $3.50.

Brilliant value and flavours
Excellent suggestions from waiting staff for what to eat (including ordering LESS). Great taste and fun overall experience as we ate at the bar rather than wait for a table.
