About
A mexican restaurant with autentic mexican food, the special is the mole sauce witch is made like in the past, an artesian mole that takes over a week to prepare, unique texture and a chocolate taste at the end. A very house warming atmosphere, and always a good service taken by the owners themself.

Delicious mole dishes. Enchiladas and the Mahi Mahi fish special both with various mole sauces recommended. Try the unque variations of Margaritas too! Sitting outside was fun to watch all the people strolling by.
