My favorite Cleveland restaurant, it was a huge hit when I brought my out of state friends here last weekend. Our timing was good, since we went around 5 pm on the Saturday the Indians hosted the Blue Jays at 4 pm. Beautiful day, sat on the patio. But the food is the best thing here, along with drinks. Can't... More

Great little spot in Ohio City, just west of downtown. Started with a selection of top notch margaritas that washed down exotic guacamole (smoked trout, bacon etc). Main courses were crazy good - my wife pork chop was perfectly cooked and seasoned with Mexican spices and lotsa love. Upscale bar atmosphere with top notch service.

Simply the best Mexican food I've ever had. Guacamoles were sensational, tacos were fabulous. Its just a hole-in-the-wall bar, but its a must if you're in Cleveland.

I visited Momocho with my wife on a Sunday evening. It was a little busy but it was expected because I found out going in that it's not a very big place. I called 2 hours ahead and was able to make a reservation (highly recommend if you plan on going during the weekend). Our meal was delicious. I'm not... More

My husband and I are in the area and he made reservations. We arrived a little early for happy hour and it was a great decision. Margarita's are delicious. The Husband had pork belly taquitos and I had the tuna. Delicious. The smoked Gouda tamales were little pillows of heaven. The fundido chorizo was fun and delicious. We highly recommend... More

Amazing Eddie got us a sampler of three fresh guacs... delicious! Pineapple/Jicama, Goat Cheese, and our favorite was the Smoked Trout. Give me a spoon, I didn't need tortillas. Everything was memorable.Best Chile Relllano of my life, and the new standard. MODMEX -- I'm a believer!

While recently visiting Cleveland and looking for a good place to enjoy a nice meal on a Saturday night with an old friend, she suggested we check out what is apparently the hottest new spot in town. I was of course intrigued when she mentioned that they had Mexican food - as I am a huge fan of anywhere where... More

I visited Momocho 6PM on a Friday night, we had made a reservation around 4pm earlier that day. Our table was available immediately upon arriving on the 2nd level, which had intriguing decor of masked wrestler paintings/pictures and old signs and photographs along with a warm dim lighting (but not too dark). We had an infant with us, and there... More

I had the margarita sampler and quickly fell in love with a pineapple concoction finished off with a spicy rim. Artwork sets the mood for an authentic dining experience with plenty of hand painted day of the dead decor. You can't go wrong with the guacamole sampler and seasonal specialties - both consistently wonderful. It's a popular place, so be... More

My wife and I have been to Mexico dozens of time, and even lived above a great Mexican restaurant in The Village...Momocho was as good as any. guacamole was perfect, fresh and spicy, this version even had...
