Summary

With consistently well-balanced cocktails and accessible dishes honoring modern Mexican flavors and traditional cuisines alike, this restaurant beats anything in Epcot’s Mexico pavilion (and most Tex-Mex in Orlando) away.

An all-day menu featuring lower-priced torta sandwiches and tacos balances with the menu’s upscale plated entrees for diners of all tastes and budgets. Patio seating takes advantage of the restaurant’s prime Town Center location for a great evening view of the springs. On-the-go diners can sample some of the restaurant’s favorites from the walk-up window at the rear exterior of the restaurant.

Setting and Atmosphere

The open show kitchen and "Wall of Fame" shelves packed with specialty liquors and wines are bathed in natural sunlight from the large windows on nearly every wall, showcasing the springs and outdoor patio from the back dining room of the restaurant.

Traditional Yucatecan sikil pak pumpkin seed dip, familiar build-your-own Carne Asada tacos, Cocina ancho-marinated half chicken served with highly-lauded queso añejo mashed potatoes, Frontera margarita and specialty agave flights, as well as the pecan pie bar (a family recipe from Chef Rick Bayless’ grandmother).
