The real deal.
This is the closest you will get to Mexican food in Cleveland. I took my wife?s family whom are from Mexico. They loved it. They were shocked. They had never been to Cleveland. The skirt steaks are excellent. The mole is good. The chicken soup will cure any cold. The Pastor or barbecue is pork is better quality and more flavorful then what I have had in Mexico. The to Tostadas are the bomb. They are very flexible with special orders. For desert try the tres leches. It is a Mexican pie (cake)
If you like Chi Chi?s don?t bother, they do not have fried ice cream. : ). You need to go to fakemex restaurants. I feel as if I am in Mexico sans palm trees and blue skies.
Best Mexican in Cleveland!. The best overall authentic menu in town. When you add price and selection it is 2nd to none. Walk into a different country off of Lorain Ave. You will be shocked at how much the food costs comparied to similar wanna bes'. I can not finish the chorizo buritto without taking a nap. And a bowl of menudo with warm tortillas is like heaven. I can't say enough, a must try. Yes east siders, if you like mexican it's worth the drive! oh yea the market next door rocks!!!

Remember when a yen for zesty Mexican food meant a run for the border, if not a heel-cool in the drive-thru? What a difference a zip code makes. Hidden (if anything can be inconspicuous under a big sombrero sign) in a multi-ethnic crock-pot of west side neighborhood, this blue-collar taqueria translates as a lunch counter that dishes rice and beans instead of burgers and fries.
While its little brother across town invites you to settle in for a full dinner in carved-wood furniture, the original fills its orange booths with a mix of homesick expatriates hungry for a taste of home, food-savvy locals looking for a better burrito and shirt-sleeved professionals filling their lunch break cavity with guacamole and cheese. When the spotless dining room is at full bustle, you'd swear you're in an authentic cantina, a little geographic sleight of hand that the crucifix on the wall and jukebox salsa only sweetens.
The whole red snapper is fried, then placed on a bed of shredded lettuce and served with golden rice and avocado; the Seven Seas soup is chock full of with everything, from crab to octopus; and the daily specials might include pork ribs simmered in a spicy crimson sauce. A full line of burrito-based breakfasts is offered, but don't do the huevos: You'll need a siesta after steak and eggs in chili sauce. In keeping with the family vibe, only fruit juices, soft drinks and fruit shakes put out taste-bud fires. Even more of a family value: the dads lugging grocery bags out of the next-door gourmet store, loaded down like Sherpas ascending Everest.
Excellent Mexican food. I like this restaurant because it is truly authentic. I have been to Mexico and loved the food and was able to find the ame quality here.
Better than the University Circle branch. The East Side location has a cool little bar, and this one doesn't. Aside from that, this is the place to go for authentic Mexican food in Cleveland -- yes, it's worth the drive from Shaker or Pepper Pike, even if you get lost on the way. The burritos are always good, especially the straight bean, cheese and rice burritos. Attached to the restaurant is a great Mexican mini mart, where you can buy hunks of sugared yams and pumpkins for dessert. This is one of the few Cleveland restaurants where you can order fresh tripe soup if you need to ... and the spicy carrot/onion/pepper salsa is unbelievable. Ask for at least three bowls of it, on the side.
