Anepalcos on Mother's DayI enjoyed our day at Anepalco's very much. The only complaint was that they did not serve the dishes they known for, i.e. chilaquiles. What I mean is that they have a separate lunch and dinner menu. I've been to Anepalco's many times and I really wanted to have the chilaquiles but felt a little blind-sided because of the menu change. If I would've known this, I would have made my reservation for earlier in the day. I know chilaquiles are a breakfast/lunch item, but I'm a loyal paying customer and I expect certain "staple" items to be available all day long.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and serviceVery creative menu options. Food is prepared well and consistent.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial food for a special occasionAll three of us enjoyed our recent Mothers Day visit to Anepalco's Cafe. The food was delicious, different, and the presentation was lovely. The atmosphere was vibrant and the staff were all very attentive. We will be back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Not So Great Service.I made a reservation for a party of 8. When I arrived the inside dining area was empty and I thought we were going to be seated immediately but the hostess still made my party wait 10 minutes before seating us. Our food took more than 30 minutes to arrive at our table. The other tables around who arrived after got their food before us. I am a patient person and I can totally understand having to wait for service when a place is packed but it wasn't busy at all.
The food is great. Chilaquiles, Huevos Rancheros, and Huevos divorciados are what I recommend. The sauces makes you want more and the portions are just right.
After my bad experience with the service here I will just go back to the original location for my Anepalco's fix.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst visit on recommendationFirst visit on recommendation of daughter. Enjoyed the food. Service generally good, but time for food seemed a little longer than expected. Great flavors, using many different types of chiles and spices. This isn't your usual Mexican food! The Shrimp appetizer was great, as was the Tuna appetizer. I had the scallops, which were perfectly cooked. Caesar Salad presentation is really nice, with each leaf of lettuce layered on top of the other with dressing between the layers. The Santo Tomas Savignon Blanc paired well with most of the items.
I will definitely be back, as there are more things I want to try!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodFirst time at this location. Love the food and service.
