AUTHENTIC!

If I judged simply by the food, I'd give this place 5 stars, but the atmosphere is lacking...basically just a portion of a Mexican grocery store turned into a dining area. But they serve very generous portions and the food is delicious. There are no other Mexican restaurants in this area so we... read more

Good meal. Food was tasty. Service was nice and friendly. My fajitas were tasty. I would have liked my portion to be bigger but I like a lot of vegetables. The salsa and guacamole were really good.

A family favorite with fresh and flavorful Mexican food. We have eaten here several times and it has never disappointed us. The lunch specials are a great deal, the salsa Verde is awesome, and the tamales and tacos are tasty!

The food is authentic mexican and one can tell. It is very fresh and has a good kick. Try the green sauce! My only problem is there is one waitress who is very rude, and I won't allow her to wait on my table any longer when I go. My last visit she basically threw the menus on our table... More

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.
