Located in a tiny set of businesses, this small eatery was absolutely delicious! Tamales were excellent and the mole sauce was out of this world as was their hot sauces! A tad pricey, but not pricey enough for me to regret my visit. If on a really tight budget, maybe you'd prefer a fast-food place. This is a good-food place.... More

We tried a couple combination dinners which included enchilada, chili relleno, flauta, tostada. Rice and refried beans were served on the side. Salsa served with chips was fair. Basic Mexican fare in our opinion.....nothing special. Very informal atmosphere. Service was very good.

The food is delicious and the people are so nice. The mole tastes like people have been working on it for a long time - scrumptious. Ask for the salsa verde for your chips-it has more kick than the pico de gallo that they routinely bring out. The sangria and mixed drinks are so-so but the food is home made... More

My wife and I went to this little Mexican restaurant for dinner based on prior reviews. The first thing we noted was that the cheapest dinner on the menu is $13.99 and it goes up from there. When we ordered we were told by the server that the restaurant does not offer fountain drinks (only cans) and also does not... More

Been going to Sarapes in Enfield for as long as it has been open. The decor is out of the 1970s, but the food is amazing. The Puerco en Pipian (Pork in Pumpkin Seed Sauce) is to die for, and the spiced pork (Carne Enchilada) should not even be legal. They make a great guacamole, and the staff is incredibly... More

I have been familiar with the spin off restaurant in Hartford (El Serape) run by junior members of the family for several years. Always heard of the superior reputation of Mama's place in Enfield. Now I'm here to second the emotions of everyone on the Excellent side of past reviews. Others have more than adequately described what there is to... More

Small, quaint and authentic. The food is cooked to order, the seasonings superb, and there is no comparison to any of the socalled "Mexican" chains. This place is fantastic.

My wife has always had great food experience. This is my second time and again I was amazed at the fresh vegetables and spices used in the dishes. It's great to see family style resturant in today's fast food economy. I was also impressed with there recent make over.
