    Our second time at Mole and we’ve enjoyed everything we’ve tried. Make sure to save room for their churros. You can’t go wrong with any dish, but I’m partial to the chicken enchiladas with mole sauce.

    I think there was a lack in servers because no one served us more water till we were almost finished with dinner. We asked two people for another glass of wine that did not come, so we had it cancelled, since we were done eating. Otherwise, it was our first time there and the food was delicious, well-prepared.

    We love the food at Mole. Most of the time it takes about 10 minutes for your server to show up but then the service is good. Would be nice to get water a bit sooner. This time was a little different. After we received our drinks and appetizers, the server said they were going to have to close the restaurant because the water was shut off. We were ok with that but then they continued to seat people. Felt like our server just didn’t want to stay. We grabbed the manager and he said we can still get our meal. It was just very confusing and not very comfortable. Our server brought us the bill. After speaking to the manager, our server came back to get our dinner order. Very confusing. Plus everyone had to go to the restaurant next door to use the restroom. I think perhaps they could have comped us a drink or offered us a dessert for all the confusion!

    Delicious food and drink. Cadillac margaritas were the best we have ever had - also the most expensive, so you are definitely paying for the quality. Go here if you don’t mind paying premium for very good Mexican food and drinks.
