Mexican cuisine

Veg-friendly Mexican restaurant. The servers are extremely knowledgeable about the dishes' ingredients, and vegetarian and vegan options, of which there are many, are clearly marked on the menu.

Downtown at e street between 9th and 10th.

The food is great, and there are many options. In fact, you can pretty much ask for any combination of veg*n items and they'll provide it for you, and it will be delicious. The service, however, is inconsistent. Sometimes they're right on the ball and there is enough staff to take care of both cooking and service. Sadly, most of the time there are too few employees to go around so the orders are taken long after you've arrived. Basically, if you walk into Pokez and it's crowded and not many people have plates, head down to Salad Style or something, and try again on another day.

One more thing: if you dislike cilantro, make sure you ask them to keep the pico de gallo and the guacamole off of your order. Otherwise your dish will be overwhelmed with it.

I agree with some of the other reviewers that the service is not very good. I think there was only one server for the whole restaurant and service was very slow. The bigger problem here, however, is the food. No one in my party was happy with their dish--everyone thought their food was very bland. I ordered two bean enchiladas and a bean tostada. (I should insert here that my food came with cheese, even though I specifically requested it be left off.) A could tell that the beans had not been soaked or cooked long enough. I came across many hard, grainny bits. The beans tasted like they had no seasonings or spice on them whatsoever. I would greatly advise people avoid this restaurant!
