My friend invited me to try this little local restaurant. It really is a hole-in-the wall (don't let the outside affect your trying this out), with real Michoacan recipes. I had the Chile Verde burrito and it was delicious. My friend enjoyed the Chile Carne with rice and beans. The salad presentation on his plate was impressive. Overall, I would... More

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.

A very unassuming place I found from a YELP review. Obviously homemade food. Interesting restaurant to try but not sure I'd come back.

I have been looking for great Mexican food in this area for a long time. So many Mexican restaurants so few that are really good. I have driven by this one many many times and probably would have continued to do so. The Outside is not inviting. In fact you'll probably want to pass. Stop once and you'll return. The... More

We went for a casual lunch on a Monday and it was fairly quiet (about six people inside). Things started well when the fresh taco chips and salsa landed on the table. I had a delicious and filling carnitas plate (beans, rice, pork, salad). Friends enjoyed a burrito and an enchilada. This place has an authentic Mexican vibe and very... More

Almost every time I go to the desert, I stop here to eat and have never been disappointed. The restaurant is small and quaint, but what it lacks in ambiance, it makes up for in delicious food! Prices are decent too!

We had worked Coachella this weekend and got a late start heading back towards LA. Sadly, the traffic was flat out brutal. Happily, we had missed dinner the night prior and wanted to get off of the freeway for some lunch. Yelp to the rescue! Great reviews steered us off of the freeway and towards La Michoacana. I like to... More

Well I think the food is delicious!!!! I love the burritos though, and the lady is really nice. The wait isn't long either. I recommend for people who want to eat Mexican food, very very very good! Hope this was helpful, bye! :)
