Don't expect to start off the night at the bar--there isn't one. Diners crowd the doorway waiting for a table on weekends, but nobody seems to mind. Sombreros and Latin American art add life to an otherwise plain dining room.
Try not to fill up on chips and salsa--combo platters are huge. We like the Plato Norteno ($8.95), which includes a chicken burrito, cheese enchilada, guacamole, rice, and beans, and the sizzling chicken fajitas ($12.95). Dishes you won't find at most Tex-Mex spots: mussels in sherry wine with ginger and garlic ($5.95), and broiled trout with Acapulco sauce ($12.95), a mixture of shrimp, white wine, lobster, cream, scallions, and Monterey Jack cheese.
