Love this place. Very authentic mexican. Feel like I'm south of the boarder. Good to have pictures I like to expand my herizon and try something new. Never have been disappointed. Be careful of the green sauce it's hot!

For authentic and fresh Mexican food Los Ocampo is not to be missed. Located in the Global market this restaurant will invariably have the longest line, and for good reason.

We discovered this place when it popped up as an instant Groupon on a recent visit to Minneapolis. Thank goodness we found it! Their food was excellent and inexpensive (especially with the Groupon!). It was only a couple of miles away from our downtown Minneapolis hotel. The setting is fast-food, but the food is anything but. The meat was so... More
