This unassuming place is conveniently located off the light rail and with off street parking in the back. We came here for the first time on a snowy winter day. Great fresh guacamole and chips was only the beginning. Had chicken tostadas and enchiladas verdes, The chicken favoring was marvelous and all the ingredients were fresh. Lovely meal. Portions were... More

I recently visited this small, unpretentious restaurant twice on busy University Avenue on the Corner of Griggs. My husband and I elected to try this restaurant after reading a glowing review in a local newspaper. Not too many patrons in the place, and I suspect that they do busy business on takeout orders with their regular clientele. I ordered the... More

We came here based on good word of mouth, but it didn't impress much. It's a very no-frills little dining room with unhurried service and mediocre entrees. There is a pretty good variety on the menu, and the salsas that came with our chips were spicy and good. And my side dish of rice was nicely cooked. But all of... More

Took my wife and son to dinner in this restaurant Friday. The menu is quite extensive. The food is home cooked traditional Mexican. The woman who took our order cooked our food. The food is quite good, the setting is quite plain. I love family restaurants like this. We'll be back

My friends took me to Homi for a taste of their mole sauce. Wherever I go I look for quality mole sauces. Ruth had been to Homi once and remembered the mole as being exceptional. It was. We arrived around 7 on a Friday night and had a feast of mole dishes and shrimp fajitas. We loved the simple, unadorned... More

The guacamole is the best! Ask for - if you like spicy - but otherwise - I like it how it is served - with just a hint of tomato, cilentro. And the chips are fresh-made also - very light and tasty. I had the carnitas - very good - with plenty of tortillas served Hot! And the pico was... More

Extremely surprised by the authenticity of the Mexican food here. A friend of mine is from Mexico and I always ask him "how do I know if the Mexican is authentic" his response is simple, "If there is little to no cheese on the menu it's authentic". For the first time in my life I was excited that there was... More

Had the bean tostadas and green enchiladas. SO GOOD. Tostadas are not spicy at all (the way I like 'em, I am a Minnesotan after all). The green enchiladas are super spicy. Fast fast service, food is delicious, employees are awesome. Prices are good too!

The place has a great looking menu with so many great authentic dishes listed on it. We ordered a chicken dish that was recommended by I believe it was the female owner.

Recently, we had lunch at Homi. The guacamole was fresh and delicious. The menu is extensive, with such a variety of entrees, we had a hard time choosing. The food was very good, and really tastes like "the real thing" (some thing rather hard to find here--we're from the Southwest). Nice selection of Mexican soft drinks, too. Pleasant music, not...
