This is REALLY good authentic Puebla Mexican. I must confess, I almost ALWAYS just order the carnitas when I go because they are SO delicious, and then taste whatever my wife orders. I can vouch for the mole (she had it with enchiladas, but it is available with chicken breast as well for about the same price.) There are LOTS... More

This is not a chain restaurant. The staff and the food are authentic mexican. My family and I have eaten our way thru the menu, everything is wonderful. Never have we had a bad meal here. The menudo is delish! The birria phenomenal. Their salsas are to die for! WONDERFUL FOOD!

Stopped here for a Friday evening dinner. We called ahead and were advised it is now a BYOB. It looked as though the couple next to our group had complimentary Marqueritas however we were not offered them.(Another reviewer noted they got around the loss of liquor license by offering a free Margarita). I guessed that was because my husband and... More

I've visited this restaurant many times over the years. The last two visits were disappointing due to poor service. Several patrons arrived after my party, but we're served ahead of us. No complaints of food though. Looking for another comparable restaurant.

If you are looking for fresh authentic Mexican food this is the place. I often eat there for lunch & always have a good meal. Prices are reasonable for the quality and portion. Friendly staff & clean. Stop in if your in town & have a taste for good Mexican food.

I enjoy Mexican food but it has become so "standard" and "themed" on my travels in America and the UK that I have started to lose interest. Restaurants that offer the same menu, same music and even same decor... and then there's La Taqueria Michoacana. Mexican food by Mexicans for Mexicans. The menu is vast: "need a little more time?"...

I went with 3 of my friends. Some of them are picky eaters but the menu is so vast everyone really enjoyed their meals. The servers are so friendly that it is always a pleasure dining here. Bring your own tequila and they will furnish the mixers. I have been here many times and will continue to keep dining at... More

Really enjoyed my meal and I think this is the most authentic restaurant in the area. Visited with a team, not all of whom are so daring with food, and everyone really enjoyed. The tres leches cake I had for dessert was absolutely delicious. Highly recommend.

I went here yesterday to try this place out after I've heard so many great reviews about it. When we pulled up there was a sign pointing to the parking lot next door. It was a little confusing thought because every single spot said it was reserved for a different store. But we parked there anyway. The sign out front... More
