They offer Oaxacan specialties such as clayuda (like a tostada) and tamales cooked in banana leaves rather than corn husks. I had my mind set on one thing though - mole negro. It was very good. Also tried their cactus salad, which is chopped marinated cactus, tomatoes, and onions, sprinkled with a hard white cheese. Yummy! The exterior and neighborhood... More

Good reviews lead me to the restaurant. I really liked the new flavors of the Enchiladas Coloradito with red Mole sauce and shredded chicken inside. Sweet sauce and full of new flavors. Nice folks that run the restaurant too. I would come back.

No matter what you order, it will be delicious. Some dishes are a little spicier than others so you might ask before ordering. If you want "authentic" Oaxacan food this is your place.

This came highly recommended. I'm not a "mole" fan but word of mouth from the well-traveled got me there for lunch. Friendly staff, cheery place though I wouldn't plan a late night in the neighborhood. We both had the mole negro -- the chicken was overdone, dry. Anybody can do that, sadly. The rice and refried beans were delightful, as... More

On a business trip to Fresno, California, we knew we were in the heart of a large and vibrant Latino community and wanted to take advantage of its cuisine. My colleague found this restaurant on an internet search engine rated 4 stars, so we decided to give it a try since it was relatively close to the airport and our... More

Must try, Chicken Mole Negro and another dish looks like a pizza. Made on tortilla like bread with 2 or 3 kinds of meat and even has nopales! Whats the name of this dish?? Open face Clayuda also spelled Tlyuda. Typical finger food in Oaxaca, Mexico.

If your you'd like something different from the tacos, tostadas, and enchiladas of "typical" Mexican food -- Oaxaca is a restaurant you should try. Their menu features the exotic mole (mow-lay) dishes typical of the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca. There's also tlayuda (sort of a Mexican pizza), goat stew, their molcajetes (big mixed grill assortments served in a unique... More
