Not enough pork and chicken on the menu. It's is an ordinary restaurant with a Mexican influence that is not truly authentic. It is not the "Olive Garden" equivalent, but close. It is only a couple steps above that lowly point.

..and by "authentic" i mean mainly the atmosphere. Amelia's does not have mariachi's, kitsschy Mexican artifacts, etc. It's a low-key restaurant which delivers excellent food in a non-festive (re: lets get drunk on tequilla and eat
