El Norteno Market & Deli
Minneapolis, MN 55406
City Pages's Description
Everything is made fresh at El Norteno, so the family owners caution that patrons might wait a bit for their food. Waiting is no problem on the tree-shaded patio, however, where music pipes through the speakers, flowers abound, and a wall mural catalogs the early work of a student-artist who purportedly left town and made it big. Customers usually opt for combo platters where they can sample authentic Mexican enchiladas and mole sauces made from scratch. Adventurous cooks can shop in the adjoining market to pick up the spices and peppers that went into their meals.
Tips from foursquare
The Veggie Fajitas are wonderful. This is a great family run business.
A warm atmosphere even in the cold winter. Mmm barbacoa!
They serve warm chips as soon as you sit down! I had really awesome mole!
