Monico's Taqueria Restaurant Review

: Owner Monico Hernandez Martinez makes all his sauces from scratch in this busy, friendly restaurant staffed mostly by family members. The menu reflects his home region of Central Mexico, and he uses fresh, quality ingredients, many of them local. The seafood burrito, fish or chicken tacos, chicken mole and fajitas are notable choices, and the seafood nachos are memorable. Portions are hearty, with pinto beans, rice and chunky guacamole, and prices are fair. Dine in or outside at covered picnic tables. It’s popular with locals and visitors, so expect a wait.
