This place is soooooo good! I came on a Sunday morning, and should have known better. Everyone eats menudo on Sunday, so I should have planned better, but it was only about a 30 minute wait to get seated.. Yes, it's THAT good. Today I had a pozole in green sauce. I added some cabbage, lime, onions, and cilantro. 😬... More

Very hard to find good Mexican food when traveling. Wish we would have found this restaurant earlier. They serve the real good menudo. Select red or white broth, with pata and hominy. The other menu items looked good too. They have a full salsa bar. Servers are friendly and service is fast. We went during the week and it was... More

Being Mexican from and raised in Mexico, I am very picky with Mexican food. I have to say that their menudo (red and white) is wonderful!!!! It is not easy to find non-greasy menudo and this one had no fat or had a greasy broth. Totally recommend!

I regularly eat at Don Vicente's Menuderia. Their Pozole is to die for--nothing quite like it. I recommend the Pozole de Puerco (Pork) in the Green Sauce. Your life will never be the same. It is not a very pretty restaurant, but it is very clean.

Great place for Mexican breakfast, specially menudo. On weekdays, you can normally get a table but on weekends you'll have to wait. The restaurant is tiny sits about 30 max in about 300 sq ft. It is authentic Mexican food with good prices and a great salsa and relish bar. The last several times, I have gotten my Menudo to... More
