Mexican food and US Open tennis

What I really like about this restaurant (other than the food) is the ambiance. They have authentic decorations complete with:

Before we left I had been watching Nadal's match with Gilles Simon and was feeling pretty bummed at having to miss the end, but lo and behold they were showing the match on a television near my table! It was fun getting my entire table to applaud as Nadal celebrated his victory even though my aunt didn't understand a thing about the game (only that my future husband Nadal was alto y guapo). Good food and a Nadal match, what more could I want  in one sitting? :)

Update: Nadal won the US Open! I was too happy for words last night, I felt so much pride :) Vamos Rafa!

Can you believe I managed to watch the entire tournament and missed the Final?! Mondays are always busy and I was expecting it to be this :( Glad he won though!

Wow! That food looks amazing! I know nothing about tennis; therefore, I haven't been keeping up with the whole U.S. Open thing. :)

I think I could eat Mexican EVERY day. It's sick how addicted to it I am. HA!

Oh, that food looks so yummy! Like Kristin, I could seriously eat it everyday.
