Sylvia's is classically prepared, genuine Mexican food, which also offers more typical Tex-Mex dishes also. She is a afficionado of enchiladas and hence the two alternate menu choices ("North of the Border" or "South of the Border") presenting four different varieties of speciality enchiladas are...More

Had the Tampiquena, wow is all I can say. Cooked perfectly, med-rare. Presentation is great as well. Comes with tortillas, but you don't need them. Tried 2 different Margaritas, both awesome. I sat at the bar and had great service.
