13037 Cortez Blvd.
Excellent Mexican Restaurant, specializing in traditional dishes, including fajitas, burritos, enchiladas, tacos, chile rellenos, tamales, quesadillas, nachos, chalupas, tostadas, chimichangas and more – and featuring their unique and delicious Molcajete Calienet which bakes a stew of steak, chicken or shrimp, pieces of baked potato, onions, bell peppers, topped with cheese, tortillas and green salsa. Fast, friendly service, great prices and fantastic Mexican food!
This is a small restaurant where the family atmosphere is casual. Comfortable booths and small tables that can be reconfigured to accommodate larger parties are surrounded by warmly painted walls that are adorned with interesting artwork from Octavio Ocampo, a Mexican surrealist painter.
Ocampo is known for his sometimes wryly sardonic, sometimes evocative paintings in which detailed images are intricately woven together to create larger images – the optical illusions fading back and stepping forward as you study the pieces, notice the details, and finally recognize the large scale intention. It is fun to “discover” the details while enjoying the delicious salsa and fresh chips.
Come out to Pueblo Viejo, listen to the sizzle of fajitas and feel the warm, fresh tortillas that provide a delicious fiesta for your senses. You are likely to be served by the owner or long-term staff members in black pants and white button down shirts and be glad you came.
