The food was absolutely horrible. We all ordered something different and none of it was edible. Horrible, horrible, horrible. Nasty food and the service was not so hot. Never imagined restaurant food could be this nasty.

So much food and so authentic. I can't believe how wonderful this little place is. An easy parking, quick in and out restaurant that puts excellent food on your plate. I really enjoy their tamales and the very good corn tortilla tacos (just like I had when I was in Mexico). You can't beat the great service and the owner... More

We lived in central Mexico and were delighted to find this restaurant! The Mexican Grill, as it is now named, is operated by a local family who are passionate about great tasting, homemade Mexican food. My fav are the tamales, tender, moist masa & lean tasty pork cooked with green chilies. The tacos are just as we ate in Mexico:... More

Some friends and I decided to meet in Kokomo for lunch and a quick look at TA got us to this place. First of all, it is very difficult to find. Small place in a non-descript strip mall with only a truck as a billboard parked out front. After finding the place I ordered the Tamale lunch special. The Tamales... More

I would recomend a large horchatta and an order of avacado dip not guac to start then either pork tacos or tamales with either a chorizo and pork torta or a order of chicken taquitos with thw green salsa and for desert the flan is a must, with it having actual mexico city vanilla who could deny its decadence.

Stopped while driving by on 31. Got the enchilada lunch special. Very good with chicken and cheese. Definitely home style. Nice and spicy. Service very good. I would show you a photo but I ate it already.
