I have taken a few friends to lunch here and everything is very good. I always get the Posole because I can't resist and it delivers every time. Quality and won't break the budget

We ordered the Pozole (a very traditional soup) and it was delicious. It was made with fresh ingredients and the flavor was fabulous (we have had this before and it is consistently good). We also ordered tacos and burritos. The food portions are very good (so we had extra food to take home). The restaurant is very small, but the... More

The restaurant is small and popular. Most customers came for take out. One reason might be that, whenever the door opens, frigid air from outside streams in. I hesitate to rate the food since so many people rate it highly. The nachos were just average, room temperature. The churros were delicious. Service was friendly.

It's hard to get a six and nine year old to agree on a place for dinner, but when one suggested Tu Mero Mole the other was thrilled. They love the kids burritos, but the adults love the fajitas and enchiladas. All in all a place for the whole family.

Love this place! Love the carne asada, tacos and prawns! The guacamole is fantastic. Small, not fancy but really good and great value!

My wife and I had lunch and ordered the Mole de Puebla and it was excellent! The mole on the chicken was the best we've ever had (my wife lived in Guanajuato for half a year) and there was enough food for two light eaters like us to share. It was served with homemade corn tortillas and my only complaint... More

A neighbor informed us of the great restaurant. I'm so glad we decided to try it out. The ingredients are extremely fresh such made the resulting foodd outstanding. I chose the Al Pastor burrito supreme and loved every bite! We will definitely be back and most likely will become regulars!

Although it's small & off the beaten path, the food & service are just great. The food was really good. Very fresh & flavorful. We dined inside at one of the small tables, although I saw a lot of to go orders pass by. The tables turnover pretty fast, so getting one wasn't a problem. If I'm near by, I... More

We have been enjoying dinner at Tu Mero Mole once a week for a several years . It is by far our favorite place for Mexican food. The staff is always friendly and service is excellent not to mention the food always made with freshest ingredients. The Salsa bar has many delicious choice's.

Delicious vegetarian option with warm, fresh, housemade corn tortillas. The chicken mole was wonderful as well as the coconut aqua fresca The place is small - maybe 10 tables
