Though Santi’s improves on mediocre gringo mex in Charleston, I have had a few bad experiences here, namely funky meat. I like the moles, cactus, and other interesting things on the menu but on a few recent visits the quality of the meat has been very poor, from 2 bad chicken mole dishes to 2 bad cactus with pork dishes. I wish the ingredients were of better quality because the food is otherwise delicious. On a positive note, the soups are good and worth trying (chicken, azteca..) That Santi has revitalized an old huddle house in the neck area is another big plus. I look foward to more restaurants in that area.
