Xochimilco is that hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurant you hope to find. When we lived nearby, my daughter and I made it "our" restaurant... always sat in the same place, ordered the same thing, new the staff by name. Twice now I have meet people who wanted to show me their favorite restaurant that "nobody knows about," and both times it turned out to be this place! Super grubbin' food, giant portions, and delicious! I recommend the steak rancheros. Spoon some of it into the homemade tortillas and learn what heaven tastes like. The only downside is the parking lot and less than great intersection/neighborhood. The owners also travel to farmers' markets and set up a booth with a limited menu. It isn't nearly as good as the brick and mortar location, but it's still ok.
The pulled pork sandwich was outstanding. The service was exceptional. Will go there again.
My Family and I have been eating at Xochimilco resturant for twenty years and have introduced many friends and family member to this wonderful establishment. We have enjoyed excellent food, friendly family atmosphere and the Friday night Mariachi band that plays songs on request. We have celebrated birthdays, graduations, and anniversaries for years. A great place to go for couples or the whole gang.
This restaurant specializes in a Salvadoran dish called a pupusa - a thick, handmade corn tortilla with a filling. I had the jalapeño and cheese and it was delicious. For desert try a sweet corn tamale. The restaurant is small and because everything is made to order, you may have to wait awhile to get your food but it's definitely worth it!
My wife and I were invited to a surprise birthday party here. The honoree was surprised by the guests, we were surprised by the delicious and bountiful Mexican food. The portions were very large and the price was very small, but most of all, the food was delicious and the homemade flour tortillas will keep me coming back.
I have been going to this local, family owned business for years! The food is authentic and fantastic. We have celebrated birthdays, graduations, baptisms, even had them cater a family funeral.
Cilantro's makes excellent burritos. Busy during lunch, this is a great place for office lunches. I hope they stopped charging a buck for tortilla chips.
Definitely more authentic Mexican food than say, Garcia's. Homemade tortillas! The place is pretty big inside. And on certain days they BBQ the meats.
