“Best breakfast and Mexican food in town”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

My wife and I come here with our family as often as possible. Everything is fresh and delicious. The menu has many items that are constant and wondeful. The daily specials however are always changing making it a unique and new dining experience everytime. I have never once heard anyone complain about any food item that has come out of this kitchen. If you have never tried their food please go in and enjoy a fresh homemade meal.

“Fresh is Best”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

La Mo is a family-owned and operated restaurant. The place is nestled off Main Street and has many umbrellas and overhead sails to create a shady and cozy atmosphere; there is inside seating as well. From hand-painted dishes and creatively-sewn aprons, the decor is uniquely authentic. This is no regular mexican food restaurant. The food is fresh and each bite offers a fantasic taste and wonderful flavors. It is never too spicey and nowhere near bland. They offer a delicious breakfast menu featuring creme fresh on french toast, eggs benedict, and corn pancakes, just to name a few. Their lunch/dinners feature local vegetables in season, fresh fish, and handmade tortillas. I have never had a bite there that was not wonderful. Honestly, the hardest decision is choosing what to eat! Try the Thursday or Friday night dinners... This is a wonderful addition to the Turlock Downtown...lucky us!

“A true treasure in Turlock.”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

Like a true treasure this little gem is nestled off of Main Street. There's plenty of street parking as well as parking in the back. I wouldn't have found LaMo's if a good friend hadn't told me about it.

The owner has captured the charm of the café with her attention to details in the menu, service, and decor. I love the way this restaurant's casual ambience and eclectic accents are harmonized with its culinary creative menu, daily specials, like Blue Crab Tamale and divine desserts like the Tres Leche cake and 'to die for' Chocolate Flan.

You can feel the love. Really. This restaurant is integrated into Turlock's community. Their salads are fabulously fresh because they buy their produce from the local farmers. Do something special for yourself and your friends and have breakfast or lunch at LaMo's.
