Itacate - Penfield
Great food, great service. The menu is a little limited but something for everyone. The food had really good flavor, definitely different than the typical Americanized Mexican food but not so different that you don't get the taste you are craving. I had a LARGE chicken burrito that had all of the stuff you look for but it had a nice bit of spiciness in the sauce and cilantro that you don't expect. Over all a good place to have a nice dinner. The staff was nice, the atmosphere was nice and the food was great.

The service was excellent. The staff is very friendly and eager to please. The dishes were well presented and very flavorful - authentic Mexican cuisine. Entire dining experience is worthy of many return trips.

They take reservations. Seated quickly. Server was very friendly and attentive. Food was home cooked and awesome (not "Taco Bell" national chain type food). Small menu which means to me chef concentrates on what is good. Good price for the quality and quantity !!

Service was very poor. We have been there 3 times, the service was only good once.

My husband and I visited Itacate around 3 pm on a Saturday, between their lunch and dinner rush. We took advantage of their lunch 'special' which was any two items from a special menu for $5.50. We ordered a total of 6 items including a pork burrito, pork taco, chicken enchilada, frijoles soup, tortilla soup, and a tamale. All of the food was served hot, was full of flavor and was really delicious. We were especially pleased with the tamale which was different from any we had had before, and also from the service. Our server Justin had a lot of information about the menu for us, and Jose, the owner, stopped out to talk to us about the food as well. Overall a great experience.

The food was very good and reasonably priced. Mexican Hot Chocolate was offered on the house to guests. Owner came around to tables to greet guests. Waitress misinterpreted my order and due to error, my original order did not meet the minimum $$. As a result, I had to order more food than I wanted to meet the requirement (which I ended up taking home). Since it was not my mistake, the restaurant should have waived the minimum requirement. Also, for a senior like myself with balance problems, the parking lot and route to the sidewalks were very slippery.

3 of the 4 dishes were barely warm and the other item ordered was a salad

Their Mexican food is a little different than typical Mexican food. The spices they use are very interesting.

No liquor license yet. Food mediocre and quesadilla disappointing.

Our server was friendly. Thee food was excellent and the price was great. When the restaurant gets its liquor license, it will be even better.
