Had a lime margarita and I liked the green sauce best on my vegetarian chile rellano. It was a little spicey but really good. My daughter really liked the chocolate mole. Nice staff and we sat outside streetside with live music. Luckily there is cover...More

I wish I could tell you which mole is best, but they are all exceptional! We stopped in for an early dinner and the service, the drinks, the food was all spot on! Everything is great, order a few things to share!

Small and un-fancy place, but serving outstanding food. All three mole sauces are drop-dead delicious. I had the vegetarian enmoladas, even though I am a meat eater, because the fillings sounded so good and unusual: plantains, poblanos, nopal, and herbed cheese. I got these with...More

I walked by this place often in February and it was always so busy that I never went in because I didn't want to deal with the crowd. I came back in May/June for a week and it was less busy. I ate here twice...More

The name of the restaurant aptly reflects the food served. Mole' on just about everything. Choose your favorite of 3 mole sauces. They're all good. Or you can have all 3 on a dish. I'd advise sticking to the traditional offerings. Out waiter advised this...More

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.
