    Mole is really nice. Had to wait for 40min for a table on a Thursday evening. Food was good. Company was great. Nice atmosphere too. Don't know if it was worth 40min of wait time

    Pollo guajillo or just about anything else on their specials menu..absolutely fuego. Enchiladas del sol (half guajillo half mole) if off the chain as well

    My fav the Pollo Serrano: grilled chicken simmered with Serrano chilies, tomatoes, mushrooms, onions and sour cream.

    Their guajillo sauce tastes like a Mexican version of Italian vodka sauce.
