New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
After relocating from Chicago to Fort Lauderdale, Victor and Julieta Bocos said they couldn’t find good, authentic Mexican restaurant with fair prices, so they opened their own. Now, they’ve become known for serving traditional Mexican dishes like xochitl soup and slow-roasted pork leg. The husband and wife were raised in Mexico City, met in Cancun, and say they want to teach people about real Mexican food, not Tex-Mex. “No one in Mexico eats burritos!” Julieta exclaims. “We didn’t know what a burrito was until we moved to the U.S.” Still, this handheld Mexican favorite has made it to the menu, due to popular demand, and it joins tortas and tacos. While bold, authentic flavors are the owners’ priority, they’ve also created a welcoming environment, with bright colors, dozens of Frida Kahlo paintings, and, most important, warm and attentive service.
Tips from foursquare
Hands down the best authentic Mexican food I've ever had. And I'm from Southern California, So im a tough critic. The incredible service combined with exceptional food made for a truly charming meal.
Great food (the Queso Fundido rocks) and awesome service. Very, very good!
Have the guac!
