No thank you! I can't believe this place is well reviewed!!! The reviews are the whole reason we decided to try something different! My boyfriend and I are both from Mexican-American families, so we seriously enjoy our Mexican food. But this place was a bust!'Firstly- I can't remember the last time I had to pay for chips and salsa in a lower scale Mexican restaurant.. Not that big of a deal, I really had high hopes for this place after reading all of the positive reviews.Secondly, when our food (actually pretty speedily for a busy Friday night) came out, my boyfriend's dish-some sort of pork burrito- was literally topped with what he compared to "ball park nacho cheese from a can". He is not at all a picky or judging eater, so I was completely surprised to hear such a negative comment about his food before I began my dish- Enchiladas de Espinacas. The "home made red pepper sauce" had absolutely no flavor to it. If I had to compare it to another sauce, I would compare it to be similar to spaghetti sauce from a can, and not the good kind. Thirdly, our service was dreadful! The place was packed, and it looked like our server could have been easily overwhelmed, but I seriously saw my server twice! She didn't even bring our food out or get any of our refills! We waited almost twenty minutes before she even came by to drop off our check, and that's literally all she did! No suggestions for dessert or even hanging around long enough for US to request dessert to her, despite our still half full plates (the beans and rice were pretty normal for a Mexican place). I had such positive things to think about this restaurant before going. It was really dissapointing to eat spaghetti sauce and nacho cheese for twenty five dollars. If you're going for drinks and some chips and salsa, this place is perfect for you. But if you're looking for quality Mexican food, I seriously recommend you pass on this place and save your money for something more quality.

This is my first visit, but not my last.
By Babs C
ordered a combo. The tamale was very good. As was the rest of the meal. The flan was disappointing. It tasted more like jello. And yes I do know the difference.....
But over all. It was a very nice dinner. And a very affordable meal.

I love the food, the service, mom & pop type place. Cleanest bathroom I've seen in a restaurant ever. Reminds me of my girlhood friend's Mexican grandmother's cooking. Also, three blocks south on Holmes is You Say Tomato for mouthwatering salads, sandwiches, and desserts.

This is by far the most authentic Mexican food urban KC has to offer. Perfect portions served but the deliciousness of the food keeps you wanting more!!! Service is extremely friendly, every employee walks around with a a smile. Im not a tequila fan but they have over 30 to choose from. And finally it doesnt get better than Dos XX on tap...definitely a authentic Mexcian food favorite!!
