I have a job which gives me the opportunity to work around the world and as Mexican, occasionally I like to try Mexican food in those Countries where I know our food it is not so common. After 20 years traveling I have to say this is the worst Mexican food I ever tried.

Restaurant started off quiet but soon filled up. Goat cheese guac to start with double chips. Perfect along with some house margaritas. Next came machaca beef, camarones, remolacha beets with peanuts and very rare tuna. All were amazing and lots left for the next day lunch. Finished with Mexican chocolate pot de creme and capirotada bread pudding. Always a great... More

Momocho is the best Mexican fusion food in town-aside from chef Eric Williams other Mexican food location, El Carnicero in Lakewood. This is NOT watered down Americanized Mexican food. This is fresh, bold and interesting dishes with tons of flavor! Guacamole with goat cheese? All day please! The margarita samplers are the best-favors like blood orange and mango. The atmosphere...

I'd heard good things about this place. We went a bit late (around 9) on a Friday night. My husband was in the mood to stay, but it was almost impossible to carry on any kind of conversation. Like did anyone ever hear of indoor voices? Everyone was yelling. I'd never been to a Mexican restaurant where chips and salsa... More

We were intrigued by the description of this restaurant as something different in the way of Mexican. However, we found the menu too different for our taste. The menu was very diverse, but in some ways, in an effort to be different, we found the combinations difficult to envision. The Chili Relleno, although tasty, was covered in cornbread that made...

We tried for a last minute reservation on Saturday evening but couldn't book a table. However, we were told that they did take walk-ins and we could eat at the bar where seating was on a first-come, first-served basis. Arrived at 6:15, to be told that a table wouldn't open up for an hour or so and the bar seating... More

Was excited to try this place, but sadly dissappointd. Margaritas, not authentic, sugary mix. Agh. Chips, not fresh made and salted. Very very very expensive!!! $144 for 3 people + tip. So, $175!!!! I could have went to a classy restaurant for this price.

We ordered the 'appetizer' salsa sampler and the pineapple guacamole - all of which were delicious and a good idea since it was our first visit. Next time will order the guacamole sampler! My husband had the beef short ribs tamales - excellent dish with many new flavors. I had the sangrita sauteed shrimp which were crisp and juicy in... More
