Weekly Volcano Review Reviewed by: Steph DeRosa

It's been an ongoing deliberation over whether or not lounges in Mexican restaurants could be considered "dives." The deliberation has mainly taken place in my own head, I argue with myself every time I pass one. They seem so tacky - how could they not be considered dives? Yet they are so tastefully armed with delicious, homemade enchilada dishes - how could I possibly put them in a "dive" class? In order to cover my dive bar bases, I believe it would be only fair to review one Mexican restaurant's lounge, Mazatlan in this case  and mark all like-minded taquerias off the list. Flamboyantly Mexican in every realm of your "Mexican" imagination can go a long way. The place is stereotypically decorated with Mexican flags, piñatas, blow-up limes hanging from the ceiling, and tropical foliage plastered upon every wall, bench, and barstool. That's enough for me to call this lounge a dive bar right off the bat. But then you notice the  cleanliness. The fresh smell of bleach, the clean carpets and the matching table sets are a dead giveaway that this Mexican lounge is part of a well-kept restaurant. Our bartender, Lily, greets us quickly, brings us chips, and quickly places my happy hour $2.50 Dos Equis pint right in front of me. Plus she's dressed nicely, has a beautiful face, and has all of her teeth. I'm so confused. By looking around I want it to be a dive, but Lily's service won't let me. All this thinking makes my brain hurt. Ouch. I need a beer.
