15 second review - expensive, good quality, nothing was outright bad. I would only return for items I can't get in every other taqueira in town for less money.

The menu:
Tacos - Fish $4.75; Carnitas $3.5; Carne Asada $4; Vegetarian $3.5
Antojitos - Quesadilla $4.5; Sopa de albondigas $4; Queso Fundido $5
Other - Beans $3; Jicama Salad $4; Guacamole & Chips $4.5; Chips & Salsa $2; Pepitas $2
Dessert - Flan $3; Wedding Cookie $1.5
Weekend Specials - Chilaquiles $6.5; Huevos Rancheros $7; Chorizo con huevos $6.5

Misc. Observations -
The fish taco (yes, that's $4.75 for ONE fish taco!) is classic Baja-style. I currently don't know of anyone who does it better (much better than Taylor's Refresher) so I would return for this dish.

The quesadilla with cheese, epazote & chiles is made from masa, not a tortilla which I appreciated.

The carnitas was moist and flavorful but not outstanding enough to warrant the price.

The guacamole was fresh but bland and was a very small serving for $4.5.

The jicama, grapefruite & avocado salad was refreshing.

The queso fundido was good but not exceptional.

There are three squeeze bottles of hot sauce on each table - ick!!! - the were all bland and oddly sweet.

Yes, you have to wait for the tortillas at Las Mesas, but they are much better than at Mijita.

I will go back to try the sopa de albondigas and the carne asada. Since I work nearby I may go back occasionally, but the taco truck at Folsom & Spear is a lot cheaper; most of their items are just as good and better spiced.

The Mijita staff were wearing shirts that have a skeleton in a chefs hat, stirring a pot. Very cool.
