Excellent food, friendly and prompt service, hard to find treats. Amuleto captures the essence of truly Mexican cuisine.

Went with my husband around 7:30 and the place was half full. Seated quickly but after that service slowed. But who's in a hurry anyway? Great small tacos so you can get a variety, excellent guacamole, and a great though unusual ceviche acupulco (tomato sauce?)...More
