Love this place! Love the carne asada, tacos and prawns! The guacamole is fantastic. Small, not fancy but really good and great value!

The mole on the chicken was the best we've ever had (my wife lived in Guanajuato for half a year) and there was enough food for two light eaters like us to share. It was served with homemade corn tortillas and my only complaint... More

Although it's small & off the beaten path, the food & service are just great. The food was really good. Very fresh & flavorful. We dined inside at one of the small tables, although I saw a lot of to go orders pass by. The tables turnover pretty fast, so getting one wasn't a problem. If I'm near by, I... More

We have been enjoying dinner at Tu Mero Mole once a week for a several years . It is by far our favorite place for Mexican food. The staff is always friendly and service is excellent not to mention the food always made with freshest ingredients. The Salsa bar has many delicious choice's.

Delicious vegetarian option with warm, fresh, housemade corn tortillas. The chicken mole was wonderful as well as the coconut aqua fresca The place is small - maybe 10 tables

Inside tables are limited but the food is excellent. Don't get fooled by the strip mall style forefront - food came quickly and was great.

Full house on a rainy Friday for our first visit. Still full on a sunny day the following week. Excellent food both times. Carne Asada tacos were top notch. Incredibly friendly service. Happy to adjust items for the kids. Great prices. Will make this a regular spot.

I have eaten here before and I really liked it. But this time the quantity and flavor was lacking. I had the green enchiladas.
