  • What we love is the feeling that you are actually in Mexico; the food, the ambience, and the people. Love the pork tamale in banana leaf, chilaquiles in green sauce, machaca, the goat, and posole.
  • Caldo tlalpeno is the best
  • Chicken mole is bomb
  • I love the soy chorizo and vegetarian dishes
  • note to self (and other vegans): sour cream and cheese comes with everything by default
  • Excellent.
  • So Amazing!!!! Get the enchiladas w/ mole!!! You won't be disappointed!!!!
  • Caldos... ALL of them are amazing
  • Molcajete specialties coming soon!
  • Cochinitas Pibil is very good. Also try a Cadillac Margarita.
  • Their food and margaritas the prices are fairly reasonable and also their food is outstanding
  • Food is great and the coffee is the best but it can be understaffed and when busy the patrons are neglected.
  • Have the coffee, brewed with cinnamon for an awesome flavor. The chorizo and eggs is awesome. Love the chilaquiles with green sauce.
  • Try the Green Chicken Mole - (via @Foodspotting)
  • Carne asada tacos. Pork tamale. Rojo con pollo pozole.
  • Play it safe and make a reservation. Then order anything on the menu. Buen Proveche!
