It’s owned by Colombians. Who know little about Mexican food. The place is nice (table cloths, multiple stemware, multiple forks, and they have a decent bunch of mariachis..)
However, the puerco chile verde seemed like the pork had been precooked (and not in the salsa verde), the frijoles y arroz were so-so and they had that ridiculous “solamente en Richmond” white glop as a sauce. I ask again, whose idea was this? Even the mejicanas who are the meseras are baffled by it. Porque?
The meal wasn’t bad, but El Vaquero does much better.. here’s the plate I had.
The mariachis did know some obscure tunes and I put something in their tip jar. That was pleasant.
But the place is pretty gringoized. Lots of synthetic looking margaritas. Ergh.
