El Mole de Jovita


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

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.

Arrived with great expectations. Had a table for 2 close enough to hear the great music, but on the inside, so not bothered by the street traffic. Once seated, we ordered drinks and were brought a basket of nachos along with a variety of sauces,...More

We have reviewed this restaurant very favorably in past years. This year, sad to say, I can barely award two stars. As always, the food is excellent and there are three choices of mole to choose from. But in the past, the choices were carefully...More
