One of the best Mexican restaurants in LA. Mole that just won't quite and house-made sopas. Always add the Oaxacan string cheese!

Easily one of the best Mexican restaurants in the city, and certainly tops among Oaxacan spots. The moles are fantastic, as is the mezcal program.

Authentic Oaxacan food. A variety of delicious moles on the menu; if you're feeling adventurous be sure to order the grasshoppers.

The Best Mole enchilladas! – I love this place! I had never had Oxaquena style Mexican food before, but now I crave it. There mole is addictive. I also love the enchilladas with their string cheese, this is so interesting and good! I am going tonight to go and get some, yum!

Great regional food at a decent price. – This restaurant features food/flavor from Mexico's Oaxca region - famous for their chocolate infused Mole. The place is very clean and the atmosphere is fairly casual (the picture above is accurate depiction). The only part I didn't like was that the utensils were a bit old (my fork was badly bent, but was easily bent back), but you can't expect expensive silverware in such a casual place... so I highly recommended it.

Best flavors in the area!! – This place is epicureagasmic!! I made that word up specially to describe Guelaguetza. Homemade cheese shredded over oaxacan-chocolate-infused tangy sauces. Try the pork dish with the red sauce---it's to die for. Huge portions so if you are not starving, find a pal to go and get your fingers dirty with and share a dish with extra tortillas on the side. The sauce is fabulous--you'll want to take it home and the meat is slow-cooked and tender. I've had the chicken in black sauce and the pork in red and they are both wonderful. The drinks should be consumed with caution---they are very, very sweet but a unique experience if you've never had authentic Mexican drinks. Great place to get a belly-full of wonderful food!

fantastic – the food here is no b.s., straightforward, totally authentic, very flavorful, extremely reasonably priced, and super delicious. i visit this restaurant frequently as it is a welcome change from trendy LA spots that hide mediocre food quality behind a trendy, pretentious dining environment. this place is the real thing

Very unique and very good! – This place had really interesting food, I've never been anywhere quite like it! I highly recommend the tamales, and any of the other menu items that involve their spectacular mole sauces. It has a pretty low-key atmosphere, and there is a store at the front of the restaurant that sells chiles, sauces, and other interesting food. This is a great place to go if you want to try something new and different on the cheap!

Great food, decent ambience – I can see how other reviewers might not love the decor, but it reminded me of a little Italian trattoria in the sense that the service was extremely friendly and wait staff highly knowledgeable (dare I say passionate!?) about their food, the tables were cute with loud checkerboard patterns, and the food was extraordinary. Now, obviously, this is Mexican and not Italian food, but you get the idea. The tamal in banana leaf (about $5.50 when I went - great value!)with black mole was extraordinary, the horchata was great (with little bits of nut and fruit in it), and even the chips and salsa with cheese and red mole was the best free appetizer I've had in LA! I definitely have to go back to try some other items on the menu, and I highly recommend the BYOB - no corkage fees, are you kidding? Where else will that happen?
