“Best breakfast in town”

Want to eat healthy for a great value? Go in for breakfast and get the Joe's Special. All protein and wayyy less carbs. BIG omelet and coffee. Service is great and friendly. Love this place!

“Lukewarm welcome, decent food. ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

We stopped in at 9:00 for take out dinner on a Saturday. The staff was less than welcoming to us, even though they were open until 10. They behaved like we were imposing. Our food was decent. Fish tacos were very spicy, burrito was good, guacamole was yummy. Overall, food was ok but not compelling enough to visit again.

“Many healthy options...very tasty.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Our daughter and son-in-law eat at Momcorn often and recommended it for lunch on a Saturday. I was surprised by the number of healthy options on the menu. I ordered a veggie wrap on a spinach tortilla with their "Latin Salsa" and a side of plantains. My wife ordered the fish tacos. The service was quick and the food was very good. The owner even came over to our table and welcomed us. It was a pleasant lunch and we will most definitely be back.

“Tasty, original, homemade”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Nice little informal place for well-made Mexican/Latin American food. The theme is corn, and a lot of the menu is corn-based, even the desserts. The cooking is a step above the ordinary taco/burrito joints. The pozole (soup) is particularly memorable. Everything I've had here has been good.

“Please open a restaurant by me!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

If you love enormous mushy burritos loaded with everything but the kitchen sink, this place isn't for you!!!

We were on a trip to six flags and stumbled upon this little gem. I hate fast food, but we were looking for something fast to grab. My husband and my other daughter chose the subway next door.
My other daughter chose to eat at this appealing taco- place with me.

We ordered steak tacos with sliced avacados and cheese. Not loaded down with all of the usual stuff. The flavour of the meat was delicious. The taco was simple and fantastic!
The food was delicious, extremely fresh, and no need to doctor it up with wasteful added mush.
Little bottles of non-alcoholic sangria was a nice touch too.
We went a month ago and can still remember everything about the little gem of a place.
Please open another franchise down south.
Might not go over well with the mother load burrito eaters down south, sorry.
