Good food, staff and pricing. They are quite a lot like the La Carreta's locally, but without having to drive to one. Pricing is very reasonable and food is great.

the food is fresh, the service is good. Mexicans work and own the place . I see Mexicans eating there all the time, which is a plus. some Mexican restaurants in the area you will never see a Mexican eat at the completion of other mex. rest. the people are friendly, comfortable clean surroundings.

Molcajetes does have good food, but it has changed so much since the family members split. The best thing there is that they have homemade corn tortillas. When I eat here i always get a seafood plate, because is always has great flavor. This restaurant also gives good portion sizes.
