Wow!!! Loved it!!

I like to think of myself as a margarita expert! I worked in a upscale Mexican restaurant for years and know my tequilas and margaritas pretty darned well. This was probably one of the top 3 traditional margaritas I've ever had- perfect balance of sweet and tangy and I could taste the tequila... read more

We left one of the dishes because no one liked it and they threw us out of the restaurant before eleven while we were waiting for a taxi. We would never go back, we even Heard the waiter saying...

I loved the guacamole with diferents flavors, especially goat cheese! Excelent place to go, in summer if you can, the tables outside are the best!

Finally, finally we had an opportunity to try Momocho. Located in Ohio City this 9 year old small eatery housed in a 200+ yr old building is a Cleveland legend and now I know why. Warning: This is not tex mex or chain mex but rather Mod Mex and in fact I suspect melted cheese would be difficult to find... More

We tried 6 different flavors and they were amazing. Perfectly balanced with REAL ingredients - super flavorful and tasty. The guacamole is delicious (we stuck with traditional)...but their chips make the guac even more delicious!

This is definately a place you'd want to just hang out with friends. Great atmosphere, great decor, fabulous staff...and the food is beyond amazing...be prepared to turn your table into a makeshift tapas bar :o)

Good food, friendly staff, fun atmosphere. We stopped in Cleveland during a cross country road trip and ate dinner here. Margarita samplers are a must!

Amazing. Mexican with a perfect amount of twist. Patio seating, very hip decor. Their guacamole sampler is the perfect start. Pork belly and vegetarian taquito were on point.

This long-time Cleveland building has housed some wonderful experiences. But, non as wonderful as the current tenant, Momocho. The ambiance is noisy, energetic, pulsing with cool. The menu is outstanding starting with the gajillion iterations of a margarita, to the multi-flavored guacamole samples. You cannot help but love being a part of something this exciting.

(I know it was a Saturday night) Started with both the smoked trout bacon w/chili poblano guacamole and traditional with chips. Both were really good. For the main course I tried the machaca it started out great... More
