This place makes some really good food, and everyone that works there is really friendly. Don't be deterred by its somewhat obscure location in a run-down strip mall. This is some fine Mexican food. The house specialty moljete, a volcanic bowl filled with sizzling meats,...More

Everything is made from scratch and tastes very good, just like going to Mama house . It is very small with a few tables and busy on week ends. Take out is available.

Lalos has alot of great normal Mexican food. Their tacos and burritos are excellent as well as their sopas and huaraches. But what distinguishes Lalos are their unusual dishes. Do you know what a Molcajeta is? Its my son's favorite dish. What about barbacoa? They...More
