El Gato Negro

Food: 9/10 Drinks: 8/10 Vibes: 4/10

Midwest Foodie: Yikes the price tag on this one! I was pretty blown away when I saw that the average entrée price was between $20 and $25. For Mexican food? Give me a break. We decided to split the steak fajitas and I understood the pricing scheme the second the food came. SO MUCH GRUB. We had a hard time finishing it, and I am a proud, card carrying member of the clean plate club. Tons of flavor in our sizzling meal, but this is definitely a spot to split entrees if you’re on anything like a med student’s budget! One thumb up.

Fajita, half-drunk marg, and a bit of our East Coast correspondent

West Coast Vibes: Margaritas plz! Had an excellent on the rocks spicy marg – “blood of the devil” – that tickled my margarita funny bone. Many different shades of marg on the menu too. My (hot) date got a watermelon margarita that he wasn’t a major fan of but the bachelorette party next to us proved by their multiple rounds that there are a plethora of options. B+

East Coast Vibes: From the outside this place is a 10/10 but inside it’s pretty disappointing. Really nothing special about the inside – mirrors on the walls and bright lighting that made me wonder whether it was a take out place…and an expensive take out at that! That said, we had a really stoned waiter so that much at least made it worth the trip to the quarter! 4/10
