We had lunch at Momcorn and loved the yummy authentic Mexican food. Queso Chorizo app was a fav, as was the guac. Everything was very tasty! Kind and helpful waitstaff. Bottomless coke/pepsi/ice tea. I am celiac and almost everything on the menus is GF! Awesome....More

Drove to Momcorn due to the Trip Advisor recommendations. It was easy to find, very clean, and good service. The food was okay. It wasn't as good as I hoped with all of the reviews, but it wasn't bad. Better than typical Mexican. Fresh food.

I ordered open tacos with al Pastor, which is meat made in the schwarma style. The food was wonderful - we ate there twice. I recommend it.

Found this gem using TripAdvisor. Food is incredibly delicious. Service was friendly. They have two sauces they present with the food that were both awesome. My hubby liked one so much, the waitress gave us the recipe! We will definitely be coming back.
