There’s no sign, but you’ll spot the warmly lit 213 Mexican serving basic Mexican food behind a glass façade overlooking Smith Street. Formerly known as El Pitayo. Salsa and guacamole are still complimentary, though they don’t make up for the monotony of flavors in many of the dishes. The combination platter's enchilada, burrito, and chile relleno are similar in taste and texture. The carne asada is more fully seasoned, though slightly tough, and pork fajitas are similarly disappointing. The mole verde burrito stands above the other dishes for its complex sauce and unique take on the average tortilla wrap. Lack of more consistent Mexican fare in the area means 213 Mexican fills a void for a quick, filling fix, as evidenced by streams of patrons stopping in for orders to go.
