THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Mexican Village Restaurant y Cantinas Restaurant Review

: This 30-year-old restaurant is a favorite with families, students and the business lunch crowd for its authentic Mexican fare. The mole recipe is a family secret, so don’t ask. The chiles rellenos are hot as blazes, and the guacamole is rich, thick and addictive. If you must order something familiar, fajitas and chimichangas are on the menu, but they’re likely to taste different---and better---than what you’re used to. The hats and artifacts hanging on the stucco-and-tile walls---not to mention the strolling mariachi musicians on Friday and Saturday nights---enhance your chance of enjoying a true Mexican experience.
