La Michoacana Restaurant

Reviewed By slc515

I was hesitant to stop in as the outside looks anything but welcoming. I'm glad my friend pushed and said the we should pop our heads in and take a look. It's bright and charming inside. They serve good, solid, homemade food. We had enchiladas, chili rellenos, and a chimichanga. It was a very satisfying lunch stop.

It has great hamburgers but they have the skinny French fries. Wish they had tator tots or bigger French fries. That is my only complaint . All else is pretty good.

El Matador

Reviewed By JuicyChickenBaby

The dinner started with tortilla chips and a spicy salsa. I had the chicken chipotle enchilada which was huge with a ton of beans and rice. Spice was just right. My husband had burrito especial with carnitas. The meat was tender, well marinated with a lovely sauce - delicious with beans and rice. Awesome. Would visit again

We ate here with a family friend and a baby and toddler. The staff were very attentive, finding us a high chair and bringing us tortilla chips. Drinks arrived quickly and the food wasn't far behind. Everything was very fresh. I had a chicken burrito and the chicken in it was real tasty. The place looks a little run down but it feels very authentic. Everyone enjoyed their meals and left feeling satisfied.

Zapopan Mexican Food

Reviewed By relevart2

I ordered 2 tacos and a quesidilla--it took 30mins and they served everyone else before me even though they came in after me. I felt discriminated against. Salsa is just ok: red, green and spicy red--all pureed, so not my favorite. Cost $14. Expensive.

Casa Blanca

Reviewed By Jackie D

We go here often, and can recommend it to anyone who's hankering for some good, ole, authentic Mexican cuisine. My husband, Tom, orders either their Campachana Grande or their Taco Chicken Salad with the chicken grilled. They give you a choice of shredded or grilled. I order either their 3 Combo of Chili Relleno, Enchilada and Taco or their Chili Guerreros. On Tuesdays and Thurdays you can get decent Margaritas for $3.99.

South of The Border

Reviewed By RustyInSeattle

This is downhill from the Desert Hot Springs Spa which we visit weekly. Wonderful family operated restaurant. Best chili verde ever tasted in the world. I always offer to buy a quart of their verde sauce, but they always diplomatically decline. Another favorite are the spinach enchiladas. Best way to describe it is to say South of the Border is the best Mexican restaurant North of the Border.
