The same menu is shared by this and the Southtown location, but we think the kitchen (and service) here edges out the original, so trek a bit north of Loop 410 to find your favorite interior Mexican dishes: fish tacos, ceviches, carne asadas, and other sizzling platters of meats and shellfish. We were particularly impressed with enchiladas mexicanas, with a rich, near-mole-type sauce of pasilla and guajillo chiles sweetened with a bit of orange juice. But you can also go modern (or is it ancient?) with a quinoa-stuffed chile relleno. Yes, the place is loud, with lively music, lots of hard surfaces, and tables wrapped around a central bar, but it’s just the right amount of mayhem to make for a party.
