El Michoacano is the best place for Mexican Seafood. Try the shrimps enchiladas, they're to die for! Never disappointed by the food!

This is a small, local spot. The menu was a bit difficult to understand for us "gringos". I'm used to certain types of combination plates and didn't see many in their menu. I did order a big beef & bean "combination" burrito. That came with beans and rice on the side along with some fresh guacamole, pico de gallo, lettuce... More

Had a late lunch here when traveling the area. Service was fast and efficient. Food was fresh, tasty, and generously portioned. Decor was, oh, colorful. One of the other folks fired up the jukebox, and we were treated to the finest in hispanic music, at 100+ DB until the waitress turned it down. All in all, a good experience. RECOMMENDED!

The food is exceptionally tasty here--nothing too fancy but delicious flavors. We are partial to the tacos and keep trying different ones when we go.

I had the super burrito with grilled chicken, the meat was tender and the... More

Limited selection of items but the food does have great flavor. When I visited the had run out of rice and got my serving not until well after having finished the entree and beans (which were the best I have had in awhile). The service tried to be helpful but when the kitchen doesn't provide the items ordered it really... More
