The menu has some vegan options clearly marked and I'm a happy camper with vegan cheese and seitan on the menu. I asked a few questions of our waiter and much to his credit, didn't wing it but gave me the much appreciated, "I'll have to ask," response. Of course you think in a place serving vegan food the waitstaff would know but awareness is halfway to the goal and it's always good to know the people who you're talking to know what they don't know.

The jalapenos really weren't that hot but there were a few bottles of hot sauce on the table to remedy that lack of scovillety.

My mini spotlight works in a variety of situations requiring intense lighting, interrogations and water boarding.
The enchilada was fine. It was totally adequate but nothing exemplary. Actually, I think that's rather fine. Putting seitan in a middle of the road enchilada with vegan mole sauce will get me back into your restaurant much faster than just serving me a better tasting bean and rice burrito after omitting the things I don't eat, like animals and cheese. At least you're making the effort.
Another thing that will draw me back, especially on a day off, is the extensive tequila list. Anejo, reposado, and blanco's abound. We always enjoy comparing since I've noticed a variance between batches of the same brand and we enjoyed Mejor and Patron that night. The bar is a warm and woody environment which I enjoyed much more than some of the slick new places around.
I'll definitely keep Mexican Radio on the list and perhaps go there during the day when a) the pictures will be better and b) I'm a bit less tired.
