Recently went for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. Seated immediately and noticed that the place was packed. I had to wait for my iced tea, which was perfectly fine because they were brewing a fresh batch- and when I did get my tea, it was brisk and refreshing. I had noticed the owner out and about, taking orders... More

Authentic and flavorful. The owner personally waited on our table and made wonderful suggestions. Be sure to get your "spice" level adjusted- I went with mild and was glad because the medium was hotter than you might be a little more spicy than at other places. Margaritas were good too.

I travel to Mexico quite a bit for work, and I can say honestly this is the best Mexican food I have eaten outside of Mexico, with the exception of a place in Seattle that unfortunately no longer exists. Try the pork enchiladas, or the tacos with carne asada... It's just a little place and it's not fancy - go... More

Without a doubt one of the best Mexican restaurants in Kansas City. The service is very attentive and the food is very tasty.

Found this place on Trip advisor and on recommendation of the reviews, we tried it. The taco portion on the menu said "best tacos you'll ever have!" So we accepted the challenge! And, they were RIGHT! Hubby got #22 marinated pork tacos and I got #21 lime marinated chicken tacos. WOW! Delicious! You HAVE to try this place. You won't... More

We were promptly greeted and sat at our table upon entering. The owner (Alejandro) takes extreme pride in his establishment. From choosing our entrees (just by asking if we were hungry for shrimp, chicken, pork or beef), he said, "I will cook it for you, if you don't like it I'll prepare something different for you." We somewhat reluctantly agreed...... More

Thank you for letting me choose for you - I'm so glad it turned out to be what you hoped for. You are correct, I take pride in my establishment and we really try to keep the homey feeling for our customers. The queso fundido can look a little daunting, but it is always a hit. Please come back soon... More

Mole is one of my favorite Mexican dishes. I tried the Enchilada en Mole! Heaven. The perfect balance of cocoa and the other 50 spices. The salsa was so good my wife drank her portion straight from the dish. Definitely a spot worth trying if you are in KC and like authentic Mexican food.

Wonderful! So glad you stopped in and that our Mole passed the mole exam as it sounds like you know what you are talking about. Thank you for the feedback and we can only hope to see you again soon. Thanks again. More
