We were looking for another place and couldn't find it. We decided to try El Korita. We found the restaurant empty. However the food was quite good.

Loved the relaxed atmosphere, and hanging out with the sweet little boy of our waitress. We will be back. I only had a salad, but everyone's meal looked... More

They truly serve homemade Mexican food here and the best Wet Burrito ever. I had mine with chicken and the mole verde sauce, which had the perfect level of heat. This is not Tex-Mex, this is real. Love this place.
