What a conflicted meal.

I am troubled with this review because no one wants to write about a really bad experience. This restaurant is cute and vibrant from the outside, but unfortunately nothing that came out of the kitchen lived up to the anticipation

The chips were stale. The salsa tasted like canned tomato sauce. The Jamaica and Tamarindo was way too sweet. The plates dirty. The rice broken and flabby, The black beans liquid and flavorless. The mole burnt( And this the specialty of the house!! Unbelievable.). The green sauce merely ordinary. and the service was MIA. Not one single item that hit our table could be given a thumbs up. An extraordinary feat.

I hate having to write all that.

I really wanted to have a find here, but I don't know how they are going to survive.

The waste of the energy that it took for this family to open this place in a fairly upscale part of town (The Crossroads) is sad.

No one in my party had a good thing to say and we all felt despondent. Sometimes when treated snottily you can leave feeling righteous anger. Not so here.

I hope that they may recover and fix their problems, but there are so many. The food, the service and the general concept of running a restaurant.

One customer at another table asked about if they had the right burrito as they had discovered a large piece of chicken in their beef burrito. To which the server replied that indeed the burrito was beef and that some chicken must have been added as they were rolling the tortilla. Can you imagine the ruckus if someone had found some beef in their chicken burrito? (0r veggie)? Not a bonus.

A thorough disappointment and solid thumbs down.
