This place will spoil you to all future Mexican food. Don't go here and expect typical Mexican fare. I ended up getting wild boar tacos and my friend ordered duck tacos, both were amazing!! Staff is very friendly and helpful. If you are going during a busy time, get reservations in advance. At first they told us 1.5 hour wait... More

Such amazing food. We got a bunch of food to share at the table and was all just great. The taquitos were excellent (especially loved the brisket ones) and such a large portion for a great price. Will definitely be back.

Fantastic Tequila. Delicious and interesting guacamoles. Robust main courses. Lovely atmosphere. Nice bartender. After the yummy goat cheese guac and a margarita, we could have shared one entree and still be full. Dessert was an aged tequila with orange slices and cinammon. Wonderful!

It is too bad there is not enough room in most of our stomachs for two meals. Momocho has the best guacamole (and salsa and chips) I have eaten. There are several different types of guacamole and a selection of 3 different types (they can be ordered as a trio), along with drinks will be enough dinner for four. The... More

Researched places to eat in Cleveland, found Momocho. Talked to a few people in Cleveland if they ever heard of it they said worth going. They were right. made a reservation. The staff was great and so was the food!!! Make a trip!

I can never figure out why it's so hard to get a reservation at this joint. It's a decent enough restaurant but you need to make weekend reservations way early (a couple of weeks). They have a sister restaurant in Lakewood, the food is similar, El Carnicero. Getting in there is no problemo

If you are reading the reviews of Momocho's then you know how wonderful, flavorful, and unique the food is. I found that all to be true and more. The service and treatment is what I noticed along with the food. We couldn't consume all the food we ordered and were sitting there rubbing our stomachs when the su chef came... More

This Mod Mex restaurant never fails. I've never had a bad thing on the menu, but the guacamole has to be the best. You can choose from various types of guacamole or even get a sampler so you can try three at a time with homemade chips. My favorite has to be the bacon garlic guacamole. I could make a... More

This is quite possibly the most amazing Latin food I've ever had, it's up there with Rick Bayless's Frontera Grille in Chicago. Their different types of guacamole, their tamales...just off the hook. Just a tip, try to get a seat at the bar, you get better and friendlier service there and the drinks have a stronger pour. If you sit... More

Located in Ohio City, a few blocks from the West Side Market, lies Momocho. Housed in an old house, this small but enjoyable restaurant serves up Mexican cuisine with a twist. The appetizers were wonderful, our group enjoyed guacamole with goat cheese, an interesting salsa (with a kick), and stuffed poblano peppers. For the main course, all four of us... More
