This was my all-time favorite Mexican restaurant. It was never much in appearance, but when you ordered a corn tortilla, someone grabbed a ball of dough, pressed it and toasted it. Fresh! I hadn't been there for a few years and last time I went, they seemed to be understaffed. It took quite a while to get me food. It... More

Love this place. Very authentic mexican. Feel like I'm south of the boarder. Good to have pictures I like to expand my herizon and try something new. Never have been disappointed. Be careful of the green sauce it's hot!

For authentic and fresh Mexican food Los Ocampo is not to be missed. Located in the Global market this restaurant will invariably have the longest line, and for good reason. The tortillas are fresh, as is the masa. While it may take longer than other fast food mexican style restaurants the few minutes needed to create the fresh plates of... More

This place is nice clean and tasty. The food is pretty authentic in a fast food style. Service is a little slow but the line is long so it must be worth the wait.

We discovered this place when it popped up as an instant Groupon on a recent visit to Minneapolis. Thank goodness we found it! Their food was excellent and inexpensive (especially with the Groupon!). It was only a couple of miles away from our downtown Minneapolis hotel. The setting is fast-food, but the food is anything but. The meat was so... More
