Mexican food in Minnesota. I did not know what to expect. I am used to Tex-Mex cuisine. It was good. The service was fast. The drink menus needed to be wiped down , they were a bit grungy at the table. The music was a nice added surprise and made the dinner more enjoyable, not to mention the guy making the balloon animals. I had the tameles: pork and chicken, not a fan of the red sauce but they were good. The hurache was a good choice as well. I would recommend this eatery.

This seemed to be a more authentic Mexican restaurant than the typical Americanized versions one mostly sees. The space is in some sort of remodeled chain restaurant and like most of these is not overly beautiful. But the food makes up for the lack of ambience.

The tamales could not have been better and were able to achieve the ever elusive balance of pork and corn meal. The Hawaiiana is a sandwich and a half - don't be fooled into thinking this is a typical sized sandwich. It was huge and stuffed with thinly-sliced breaded steak, ham, marinated roast pork, and pineapple. There was not hot spice at all in this dish and served as a great choice for those who like Mexican but are hot chile averse. Finally, the Alambre Al Gusto was very flavorful and the chipotle chicken that we chose for our meat worked perfectly with this dish.

Great food and very authentic especially at the Los Campos on Arcade; they are my favorite. The one by Target is good and more of a restaurant style while the one on Arcade is more of a cafeteria style. Great food.

Excellent Mexican food. Wide selection -- the meat selection alone is amazing. Nicely spiced, extensive choices. Taco Mondays and Thursdays are an especially good value; regular prices also good value. Salsas offer a variety of spice levels -- those I tasted were all delicious. Family friendly; space is large enough to be able to read despite conversation at adjoining tables. I'm going back.

Nice to hear wait staff and customers speaking fluent Spanish in a St. Paul restaurant.
