In the mood for good, authentic Mexican food?? Great variety- barbacoa tacos (with lamb) are terrific. Proprietor Ernesto and staff are very friendly

Food is autherntic Mexican, and is fresh and good quality. The place is family owned and there is obvious pride. It's clean, but you go for the food since there's nothing fancy. Tonight I had a Carnitas combo - my guest had a steak Burrito....More

LaRANA is a hole in the wall off Moulton in Aliso Viejo. The appearance is offputting, because it's in a grotty strip center and looks weird, unlike a restaurant. I have tried various dishes with mixed results - the fish (farm raised) tasted muddy so...More

The food from this mexican hole in the wall restaurant is great. There really is no place to sit down comfortably so we usually order take out. Give it a try.
