authentic mexican restaurant

This is a no nonsense Mexican restaurant. The decor is functional, but the food is authentic and good and the portions are large! I thought it was excellent value and the efficient waiting staff knew the menu well and were happy to explain and advise

There were many different dishes to choose from. The food was very good. The service was also good and fast. Good selection of cold beer. There were only two kinds of cheese cake for desert.

Can't say anything negative about this great little mexican joint! The food is excellent, service top notch, nice cold cold beers & you should ask them to bring some of their "cabbage salsa" along with regular salsa & chips. We like everything we've had from their pretty extensive menu. And its very reasonable. A nice cool place in the hot... More

Had the hankering for a taco salad and decided to kick it up a notch and order fajita steak taco salad. No dressing required! I ordered this to go and ate at my B&B. They also threw in chips and salsa which was nice. I found this to be a little overpriced, 13$ for a taco salad, but it was... More

Quality service + huge quality portions = success. This is one of those great hole-in-the-wall eateries. A friendly and knowledgable staff make the experience and diminish the need for atmosphere. Eat up!

This is a typical Mexican restaurant on the inside, plain tables and booths. It is a pretty small restaurant and only has about 20 tables. To get to the bathroom, you have to go outside, then back into a room that houses the bathroom. There was a wait for a table and they had a pretty booming take out business.... More

Had a combo plate hidden on the back page of the menu. A taco, chicken enchilada, chili relleno. Relleno was really good. More food than I could eat. Very cold Negra Modello!

Cocina Michoacana is a very small place - so get there early! We happened to be there just at the right time and were seated right away. Our food was delivered quickly and it was delicious. We would highly recommend this place if you like authentic Mexican fare.
