“Great mole”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

I've heard that all their food is great, but I always get enchiladas with one of the mole sauces. I haven't found another Salt Lake City restaurant that does these as well.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

I went there with a group and I ordered had the Shrimp. All any one in our party of six could say was amazing. The taste of my shrimp was really good- complex and surprising but still pretty simple.

I have eaten Mexican food my entire life and can say that except for my father's cooking this was the best I have had.

If you go, try to make a reservation- this place was packed the entire time I was there.

It's just great food at a great price with great service. No need to repeat all the great things others have said.

“Best Mexican food in the valley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

The moles are dynamite. Great, authentic food always! I try to go here at least once a month. They also do takeout if you don't have time to wait. Love this place.

“Good Mexican Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

We didn't have any mole, which is what this restaurant is noted for. Next time, we'll give it a try. I had a chicken chimi, which was big and good. Beans and rice were extra, but necessary. My husband had the enchilada special. Both were yummy! Location was busy, crowded and dim but worth it.
