If you love fresh authentic Mexican food, then you have to try Ovalle's. Although the location is not in the frequently traveled downtown locations, it is well worth making the short drive. The guacamole is prepared to your taste right at the table and the...More

This isn't your regular Mexican restaurant, but instead it's more of a café as the name suggests. They have excellent made-to-order guacamole prepared and served at your table, and the fish tacos are amazing!

My family loves Mexican. Everything was homemade down to the guacamole done table side. This is authentic as anyone can get.

We ate on a Friday night around 7. We were one of only two or three tables of customers in an otherwise empty restaurant - usually not a good sign. The tile floors were very tacky / sticky as we walked to our booth. The...More

My wife and recently had an incredible meal. Ovalle's is true authentic cuisine. One of the most interesting parts was the guacamole. They bring a cart to your table and literally start with 2 avocados and hand make guacamole right at your table. Service is...More
