Los Mogotes, makes the best carne asada in the area. We like to go for lunch, or carry out. Large groups would be welcome in their big dining room.

Stopped at this location for dinner and was surprised by the taste and serving size of dishes. The staff was welcoming and the food was very tasty. Prices were on par with other places in the area. Will definitely go back as a regular customer.

Stumbled upon Los Mogotes last Saturday night. It's hidden in a strip mall so I never really knew it was there. Glad I found it! We tried the steak, chicken, beef and avocado tacos. All were excellent and very inexpensive. I walked in and ordered carry out and it was ready in about 5 minutes. Staff was super friendly. As... More

It was my first visit and had heard a few good recommendations. I tried a dish with shrimp steak and chicken. All were very good. Salsa and chips were good as well. Will return to try something else.

We went to try out the new place in town. We went on a Saturday night (St. Patty's Day Eve) and we were the only ones there. The food was great. The guacamole was very good. I think their only problem is they don't have a liquor license nor do they serve fountain soda so you have to pay for... More

Went to try the new place in town.... Had the guacamole, was almost like they bought it pre made... no chunks, no clintro, no flavor. Had the combo because I wanted to see how they made different things, Everything tasted the same... Pepper was rubbery, as was the enchilada, the taco was not even full size, it was mini taco...

we are big fans of Mexican food, and don't settle for poor taste or quality. luckily, we don't have to do either with Los Mogotes. The guacamole (a great caliber for the rest of a restaurant's food) is great, and all their food has good portion sizes, fair price, and great flavor. seems like a family place, which we like,...

I was really hopeful that I would like thus new restaurant, but I was disappointed. It is a friendly place and has a nice local feel to it, but the food is typical Midwest Mexican food. Looks good, but is bland. It is not bad, but doesn't really have the strong favors and spiciness that I want.

We are excited to have this new restaurant in town. Everything we had was good, not exceptional. There are lots of menu choices. We had combination platters and apple soda for a total of $23.01 including tax. Platters include three items with rice and beans. The friendly but busy waitress answered our questions about the rice milk they had on... More
