Siete Luminarias Mexican restauant is not only the most authentic mexican restauraunt I have ever been to, they also have the freshest food. They even surpass restaurants that I have visited in mexico. My favorite dish is the vegetatian sopes. I just love all the grilled veggies on the crunchy little edible plate that they come on(corn masa). I recently tried the shrimp tacos and they are a close 2nd. I also love the carnitas. The meat you get in ANY dish is so tender and flavorful. I havent tried the cactus nachos yet, but its next on my list. Everything is made fresh when you order so some in and try some Guanajuato Style Mexican Cuisine. You wont leave hungry!!!!

RFT 2012 Best of St. Louis Winner - Best Mexican Restaurant- So many worthy choices for the pallet of those who love Mexican food! http://bit.ly/OU38LP
On weekends, a half-dozen specialty entrees — including goat barbecue guanajuato style — supplement the regular menu. The $1.50 street tacos are one way to sample the many meat choices. (Joe Bonwich)
Food is so good, authentic Mexican right here in the STL.
The ceviche is tip notch!
You have to try their twist on a classic Mexican torta! You can catch them at the Iron Fork http://microapp.riverfronttimes.com/ironfork/2013/
