This place is a gem. Quiet, excellent food, perfect service, close to Davis Square but not too close. A great selection of beers. The Camarones Macaria were great.

I've been wanting to try Tu Y Yo for years and finally got there today. I arrived between the lunch and dinner service and I was graciously offered the option of ordering from either menu. I opted for lunch and wasn't disappointed -- my meal...More

We found Tu Y Yo after dinner plans in Davis fell through. This was a very good thing. We've been coming to Tu Y Yo for ~4 years or so and it's addictive. The mole is outstanding, the beans are delicious, and the crepa de...More

I wish we had more mexican restaurants like this around. The mole and poblano dishes were delicious. Next time we'll be staying for dessert to try the avocado cheese cake. I'm still thinking about the food the next day.

I don’t usually go out for Mexican food but if I had a place like this where I live, I’d go a lot. Most Mexican food in the US is mostly Tex Mex. Not this. This is nopals, moles, slow-simmered meats, delicious beans, rice done...More

Add 'Mexican' coffee seasoned with cinnamon and a touch of cocoa and fried plantains. One of the best 'authntic' Mexican vs American Mexican food restaurants around in my opinion. I have never been disappointed here. Great for lunch and dinner too. My daughter loved the...More

We recently ate here coming from California where Mexican food is a staple. The pricing was quite high and the restaurant older. We had little kids with us (12, 8 and 4). Soft drinks were ridiculously priced-- 3.50 for a lemonade in a child's cup...More
