This is eclectic Cali-Mex food. The food is delicious, and I'd rate it a 5. They serve vegan, vegetarian, chicken, and fish. Excellent cornbread, and I've been pleased with all the food I've ordered, though I often wish people would stop over-using red onion in general, and at Alto Cinco in their guacamole and salsa. But this, I realize, is a personal taste thing. They are too overpowering and dominate the flavors in my opinion. Green onion or Mayan Sweets would be preferable, but I digress.The reason for the 4/5 rating is two-fold. Price is a big issue. $9 for a burrito is asking a bit much, no matter how good it is. I was happier when the burritos ranged from $6-8.The other issue is space. They have a huge clientele and very little room, making the tables feel cramped. They frequently play the music too loudly so that people have to talk loudly and result is a din. I highly recommend calling ahead for carry-out, which is a shame because the main dining room has unique decor.

Great Vegan Options

My friend and I were happy to find a mexican restaurant with great vegan options. I highly recommend the Vegan Burrito (beans, rice, lettuce, tomato and guacomole) and sweet potato fries. The portions are generous. Serivce was pleasent, just not over the top. It's a little cramped, but once you're settled in, it's not bad.

Cute place-Bad food

After eating authentic mexican in southern TX i guess my expectations might have been too high, but the food was terrible. just because you wrap something in a tortilla shell does not constitute ""mexican food"" or even a burrito. the meat was suspect in both dishes we ordered and the ingediants all put into the burrito made for a horrible taste. They were big, but also bad. If they would stop trying to reinvent the wheel, see what a real burrito is and just produce that, they would be much better off.

Bueno

Eating in the small restaurant provides an intimate, yet crowded atmosphere. The food was outstanding. Lots of great innovative fish dishes on the menu, plus twists on the standards you expect from a mexican restaurant.
