“A new Mexican food favorite!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

There are numerous Mexican restaurants in Corpus Christi, some better than others, but after dining at Mole` tonight, we've found a new favorite. There were four adults and 2 pre-schoolers (plus an infant) in our party. The service was prompt, helpful and attentive. Orders came quite quickly. Everyone ordered something different and all agreed that each item was delicious and, since this is Central Mexican fare, the dishes were a delightful change from the Mexican food found in other local restaurants. It was also appreciated that the menu had little red peppers beside spicier dishes to indicate the level of spiciness - something common in Thai restaurants but generally lacking in Mexican restaurant I've visited in the past - no unpleasant surprises in the "heat" levels....We all intend to return to this restaurant often.

“New taste in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

A friend and I ordered the Mole Verde, he got the pork while I tried the chicken. The pork was tasty, the chicken was tender and moist. The corn tortillas were very good, the beans were tasty. The mole that I was expecting was the dark spicy kind that is commonly found here in South Texas. The mole that was served was a tomatillo sauce. It was good, and was not spicy at all. The service and front wait staff were very attentive and professional.
