Hailing from Acapulco, Mexico, El Olvido’s Executive Chef Jorge Pingarron crafts a menu of authentic dishes that span multiple Mexican regions. Chicken wings served with avocado sauce ($7.95) serve as piquant prelude to carne en su jugo ($9.90–$11.90), the house specialty that uses a traditional Jalisco recipe to cook strips of meat in their own juices with beans and bacon. Costillas en salsa verde ($11.90) couple hearty bites of pork baby ribs in green sauce with rice and whole beans, and in the camarones a la diabla ($12.90), shrimp sautés in a spicy chipotle sauce alongside bacon, onion, and poblano. Guests can pair bites with imported beers such as Tecate and Modelo Especial ($3.50) or traditional Mexican flavored water ($2.50), which doubles as ammunition during traditional Mexican water-balloon fights.

I love that it is not typical Mexican food slopped on a plate. Thank you for beautiful food and terra cot plates

The chili relleno was fantastic!!! not breaded or fried and stuffed with the most delicious carne! The service was great and they were so kind and attentive. Such a great place.
