Purepecha Room by Revolver Taco LoungePurepecha Room by Revolver Taco Lounge

Mexican | Deep Ellum, Dallas

The Purepecha Room is a one time experience. We booked our reservation nearly two months out for the 8:30 pm seating on a weekend night. While we did not fill the room (14 seats, maximum), our group occupied a majority of the seats. Overall, the food was very good. Most of the eight courses represented combinations of ingredients that we had not eaten before. Several courses were outstanding, bordering on incredible. Only one or two were below average. A particular favorite was the pasta with octopus. The stewed lamb in a leaf with rice was delicious as were both of the mole dishes. The hand made tortillas were also great. On the other hand, the courses seemed a little routine (in subsequently reading reviews on-line, we determined that six or seven of the courses are apparently the same from night to night) and the service was not what one would expect for a $120/per person meal. Despite a reservation, we were not seated until 9:15. Although we waited 45 minutes, no one asked if we wanted a drink. When we were seated, the waiter disappeared from time to time adding at least a half hour to a late evening. In the end, I am glad that I went but do not plan to return. More

Management seemed a little unorganized. But table service was great. It's the best choice for yakiniku we have in DFW. More

Great location! The food is great! Service was very professional. I would say the drinks aren’t mixed the best but definitely not the worse mix drinks I’ve ever had. More

Everything looked, tasted, and presented well. There were some inconsistencies with the Old Fashioned and a couple of repeated requests to our waitress but still 4/5 for the service. Way to go! More

Latin American | Deep Ellum, Dallas

Came to dance to salsa/latin music for my birthday. They play great salsa 10-11-ish, but no one was dancing yet. Then it switched to mostly latin pop and other pop/dance music. They included a few more merengues, but it's definitely not a salsa dancing venue that attracts salsa dancers. Was more hopeful they would still have a live salsa band, but they said people prefer DJs. If they could improve the quality of their interior, have shows and great cuban food, it would be more what I'm looking for, but Dallas does not have a great salsa scene. Therefore, it was good enough for what we wanted to do. We had fun! They also changed it so we were up in the VIP section for our 10pm reservation, which was great until they asked us to leave before 12. They were nice about letting us stay since we didn't intend to stay too late, but we would have just kept our tables on the floor if we had known we would be kicked out at a certain time. (we did not eat there) More
