Authentic Mexican food, best in the area!

First of all, let me say that if you are for romantic place, forget it. This place is all about great quality at a great price! Their burritos are huge, portions are large and seasoning spot on. They even have off the wall condiments and drinks.

The Borimex website (http://laborimex.com/) looks a lot like the restaurant: homey, hodgepodge and authentically Latin American. “Borimex” is a fusion of "Mexican" and "boricua," or Puerto Rican. You’re literally eating in a Latin grocery. Bottles of salsa, candy, party favors and bags of corn flour line the walls. Before you sit you can grab a Jarritos or other soda from... More

I recently moved to Morgantown and I am so glad I found this place. Mexican food is my favorite and I'm not a big fan of chain restaurants. This place hit the spot. There were a lot of customers and upon entering I heard one of the customers say, "this place should be on diners, drive ins, and dives!" Right... More

I was never a big fan of Mexican food, because I never really have visited Mexico so I do not know that much about authentic food. And TacoBell for some reason... Well let's just say NO. A friend of mine loves Mexican food he invited me so i thought okay I'll give it a shot. He took me to La... More

Really like the food but the atmosphere leaves a lot - a whole lot - to be desired. It is a small restaurant with a make shift Mexican food store in the middle. Because the food is good, and it is the only Mexican restaurant within 20 miles it does well. It could be so much better if they would... More

Awesome Authentic Mexican food. Small place with just a few tables. We tried the guacamole, supreme nachos, chilies relleno and chicken chilaquiles. All really good. Portions were plentiful.

Ordered a number of times for the whole office. Always have been very satisfied. They do not deliver so need to pick up. Never ate inside the dining room. Defiantly best authentic Mexican food in the county.

The food at La Borimex is the real deal. The tacos are just like you get at the taco stands in Mexico. Tacos de Lengua - excellant. Not a pile of microwaved soggy discs. Everyone that I have taken there has loved the food. The secret is out though. The grocery section keeps shrinking and the eating area keeps expanding.... More

excellent food! authentic Mexican, not a fancy restaurant, service sometimes can be slow, you help yourself to your beverage choices, no beer or wine, but real Mexican Coca Cola! most menu selections are $10.00 or less. My favorite is the Shrimp burrito platter! Their freshly made pico de gallo is the BEST!!! just the right amount of cilantro and flavor.... More

If you are looking for good Mexican food without a chain restaurant atmosphere and prices, La Borimex is your stop. First, it is a combination of eatery and grocery store where you can find a mind boggling selection of dried peppers and spices for authentic Mexican dishes. There are many imported items for your eating pleasure. I love to browse... More
