Chips are a thicker cut and very good, salsa the perfect hotness and good consistency, not too chunky, not too watery. Our table enjoyed chicken tinga tacos (shredded chicken with chorizo flavorings) served with rice, beans and side of lettuce/tomatoes/guacamole. Fajitas were great. Staff very...More

I've eaten here a few times. It's not the best Mexican food I've ever eaten but it is consistently good. The wait staff ways friendly and eager to allow special orders. It's a great value.

I have gone to Cafe Silvestre for over 20 years. They have the very best enchiladas in the world. I always have a cheese enchilada, a smothered with chili verde burrito, and a homemade tamale. It's excellent!
