New Mexican Restaurant On Broadway
"We have a new addition in the everchanging dining scene of Uptown. My boyfriend and I were walking home from Target this evening and noticed Tolotzin Mexican Restaurant. Located at 4431 N. Broadway, it seems to have just popped up. I don't remember seeing construction or any other grumblings about a new place coming to our hood. We decided to stop in as we have frequented Mr. Salsa, El Palmar, and Fiesta Mexicana numerous times, and wanted to give this place a go. It was empty inside (the place was about to close)...but the decor was really nice and all of the tables were neatly set. The food was spectacular. Better than all three aforementioned places ... and that's saying something. The portions were more than generous, the price was forgiving, and the food was extremely authentic.
I'm glad that a place like this has appeared so close to me. I have to be honest, I feel like we stumbled upon some hidden secret that we're not supposed to tell anyone about! Alas, that does not matter b/c I hope that you can get the word out for people to come and enjoy and support this amazing new addition. Just in case, our server last night said they were open from 11-11 everyday, but the sign on the door says 10am-midnight. So I'm sure they need time to work out any "new-restaurant-kinks". Also, they are cash only at the moment.
PS: The flan...get the flan. He gave TWO to us for coming in, and we both finished it. By far, the best I've ever had. No joke."
