    Also, Kahala Corporation is a really shitty company.

    Went there for the first time about 3 months ago. Don't know why it was on DDD since it's none of those. They go out of their way to hype up the "Barrio"/chicano art aesthetic, but it's fairly pricey (plan for about $20-$30 per person) and mostly white folks eating in there. My cochinita pibil was stringy and way overcooked/dry. My dad still talks and raves about his mole chicken enchiladas. Place was packed and I got annoyed they were super pushy on drinks. The other entrees I sampled weren't really memorable. My margarita which was $8 was made with well tequila (Cuervo) and crappy plastic bottle triple sec. You can get close to the same margarita at Caramba's for $4.

    I think why a lot of people rave about BC is the food is far superior to what most people are used to here in Phoenix (Macayo's, Ajo Al's, Manuel's, Arriba's, On the Border, etc.). It's probably some of the better Mex food I've had here too. I couldn't help however to feel that the experience was a money grab (maybe our waiter was just shitty) and they catered to gringos. Our waiter pulled the "Hello Amigos!" bullshit that annoys me to all hell.

    Long story short Audra is your mileage may vary. As you can tell by some of my other posts I'm borderline fanatical about good mexican food, and I'd rather eat at some no-name mariscos shop and have cheap (and very homemade tasting) food rather than shelling out decent cabbage for "better than average" mexican food.

    EDIT: As far as authentic, it's "kinda" authentic. They spin things like guacamole by adding pomegranate. Mole and pibil were authentic tasting, albeit dry. They use chicken breast across the board instead of more homey tasting dark meat.

    I've been there a bunch of times, I actually work across the street. If you go, i recommend going during happy hour because their food can get expensive. At happy hour they have $2 or $3 tacos, I can't remember. If you go, I highly recommend getting their sangria. They put a scoop of frozen mango as well as a shot of whiskey or bourbon in it.

    You have convinced me not to try it. The dish that was featured on DDD was Tilapia covered with a chipotle sauce cooked in a banana leaf, it looked amazing but Tilapia is a pretty cheap fish, so there is no chance it's worth that kind of change. I cook a lot of Mexican food and make a pretty good mole myself, so I don't typically get impressed with the standard Mexican food options, especially if they are overpriced.

    edit: ok, I might try it for HH for some motherfucking sangria. mmmm
