This is like a trip to Mexico. All dishes are freshly prepared. It is, in my opinion, the best place to get real Mexican food in Sacramento. very busy for lunch; but, easy to get a table for dinner.

This place makes some really good food, and everyone that works there is really friendly. Don't be deterred by its somewhat obscure location in a run-down strip mall. This is some fine Mexican food. The house specialty moljete, a volcanic bowl filled with sizzling meats,...More

Everything is made from scratch and tastes very good, just like going to Mama house . It is very small with a few tables and busy on week ends. Take out is available.

Lalos has alot of great normal Mexican food. Their tacos and burritos are excellent as well as their sopas and huaraches. But what distinguishes Lalos are their unusual dishes. Do you know what a Molcajeta is? Its my son's favorite dish. What about barbacoa? They...More

And I've eaten at a gazillion Mexican restaurants. Lalo's is the real deal. Friendly, efficient service and delicious food. No chips. The salsa is on the table in big bowls...four different kinds, some quite picante. The menu is extensive. We had chicken tamales, cheese and...More
