This restaurant serves Mexican food from the Michoacán region, which means an emphasis on seafood, tomatillo salsa and dishes like carnitas and carne asada. I think that they do it well, although I am a picky eater (and a white woman) who is still trying to figure out what I love best about Mexican food, from among lots of delicious... More

We have eaten here multiple times and find it to be a family friendly pleasant location with a variety of salsas for the chips and very good entrees. Our last meal included the carne asada which was excellent.

Wow! Great authentic Mexican food, with a wide selection of choices to choose from. A taco bar to pick your favorite salsa, etc. Very prompt service I might add too! Good selection of spirits and drinks.

My family enjoyed this Mexican Restaurant for lunch during the weekend. If you are looking for standard Mexican fare with rice and beans, homemade tortillas and a salsa bar (try the spicy cilantro salsa), this is the place. Friendly attentive service, festive atmosphere.

I ordered the soup, which was $12 - way over priced for soup. My kids ordered the kids quesadilla. I asked to add steak to the quesadilla (extra protein) and the waitress acted like it was super inconvenient to add steak and said she needed to ask permission to do so. Our waitress bright the wrong drinks. Dinner for four... More

I've always loved the food here, the fresh salsa bar, and the service. The food is authentic Mexican food from the Michoacan region. They have unique dishes like quail. Authentic Mexican food does not swim in cheese unlike some Americanized Mexican food.

Went to lunch and the service was extremely slow, the food was not what was expected. Very small portions with high prices. Truth be told I have had better tasting food other places. The meal was so bad we were comped in full and did not have to pay. I would have loved to pay and eat good food.

Dear Los Tarascos, I was recently at your establishment with family and friends, spending over $100 for food and drink. After I reviewed my receipt, I discovered that you CHARGED for the tortilla chips after the first basket. IF THE TORTILLA CHIPS WERE HOMEMADE OR OF ANY QUALITY WHAT_SO_EVER, I MIGHT SUCCUMB TO THE CHARGE. However, they are nothing more... More

My husband and I were in the mood for good Mexican food and decided to give this place a try. First off, we ordered the top shelf marg and I was not a big fan. I didn't like the gran gala they used for their orange liqueur. My husband had the carnitas and they were outstanding! He ate every bite!... More
