Tips:
  • The house margaritas are outstanding, especially the citrus version with orange, grapefruit, lemon and a bit of habanero for zing, and the margarita "de playa" with orange, lime and jicama juices, and a touch of chipotle. For purists, the chelada---beer, lime, Worcestershire and Tabasco.
  • After opening with a no-reservation policy, the restaurant is now taking reservations.

From OpenTable: 

Expertly blending traditional Mexico with creative interpretations of local and seasonal ingredients is the inspiration behind Mercadito restaurants. Spanish for “little market”, Mercadito is modeled after the markets chef Patricio Sandoval shopped at while growing up in his native Mexico. His muse is the cuisine of the southern region but when mixed with his own style he creates authentic dishes with an added flair.
