Loud, noisy but perfect for Cinco De Mayo. Caters to a mid 20s crowd but the margaritas were delicious, the guacamole had a nice little kick to it, and the tacos are perfect.

We stopped here for a margarita and to share a meal. The margarita was good and we had the carne tacos. The meat was tender and tasty. Nothing extraordinary but definitely good.

Mercadito was one of the restaurants recommended by our hotel, so we took a chance. And it paid off! They pride themselves on their margaritas, and they should, because they were anything but ordinary. The food was delicious - fresh, and full of flavor. Everything...More

Margaritas, tacos, ceviches, salsas and quesadillas. Hey, it's all there and I felt it was very tasty. I've found some Mexican food in US can sometimes lack any 'kick' but I thought this was pretty good. Service was fine, the evening we went wasn't overly...More
