Old School Family Mexican Food

My family has recently rediscovered this little gem in the quaint town of Jamestown. We have eaten most everything on the menu (and there are a LOT of items!). The restaurant has been there for decades and has had the same owner. The food is varied and freshly made. The fish/shrimp dishes are... read more

A couple on the sidewalk highly recommended this restaurant as they were going into it. We tried it out and went back 2 days later for another meal. Very fresh and authentic Mexican food. I had carnitas, as well as the chile rellenos on my visits and they were excellent. Chips are freshly made and you get both corn and... More

The food was very good and had the same authentic flavor of food I've eaten in Mexico. Even though the town of Jamestown is small, a large dinner group from Europe took the table next to us. The owner was so extremely nice to ask us if we wanted to move to a quieter table in the next room. Our... More

We opted for the 20USD for two main course meals. There was so much food as the portion was very generous. It also comes with free drinks and salad or soup. One of the earliest food places to start in town. The taste is jus decent but the friendliness and portion make up for it.

We eat here at least once a week. The family is from the state of Morelia in Mexico. My wife loves their Morelia Salad. I usually get chicken fajitas.

Very good Mexican meal. We were very impressed. Best I had in a while. We were not sure but read some great reviews from others and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed.

Friendly, tasty, fast, reasonable, consistent, quality, clean and an interesting historic building. 5 or more visits later, we'll keep Morelia as our loyal stop. Visit and you won't be disapointed!

So I've been coming here for years but it's been a while since I visited. Food did not disappoint. The mole poblano is one of the best (for the very best see my review of Manuel's in Aptos, Ca). They also make great guacamole and all their sauces are good. The chips and salsa are great though the mixed basket... More

We found this restaurant by coincidence. The service was super nice and quickly. We had chimichanga and margaritas. I think the chimichanga that we ate was one of my favourites of all time! It worths to stop in Jamestown to eat there! Highly recommended! :)
