“Delicious Mexican Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

It took me years, but I think I finally found the best, most authentic and reasonably-priced Mexican food in the Des Moines metro - 5 de Mayo Mexican Restaurant - on SE 14th St. in a little strip mall across from Wal Mart. It's dressy enough to take a date and casual enough to go as you are. The chicken burrito is the best I've ever had and I'm working on trying everything on the menu:) My son's favorite is the Puebla Special - grilled chicken smothered in cheese served with rice, pico de gallo and shrimp. I can afford to take the kids with prices like $8.99 for a delicious, nutritious dish. We all often get the fried ice cream; the kids like the huge serving and I like the honey, chocolate, raisins, and coconut. A mom and pop restaurant with great prices and flavors; that's why I took the time to write this.
