Not vegan friendly - Edit

For a being one of the most popular Mexican restaurants In SLC, I was very disappointed in the options. I ended up ordering the Tacos de Longas, which basically consisted of greasy sautéed mushrooms in soggy taco shells. The grease was dripping out of the shells! And the beans were soupy and watered down. The only reason I gave it 1 star is because the server asked if I needed it to be vegan so she could tell the cook not to use butter. Very disappointed!

Cons: long waits outside, overcrowded , no real vegan op

GREAT Mexican food - Edit

One of the top-rated restaurants in Salt Lake City and for a good reason. The food is fantastic and very authentic.

Vegetarian options are plentiful and with a few modifications many of the options can be made vegan.

Veg options aren't marked but the staff seems to know what they're talking about. Once you get your food you don't care anymore--so good!

Pros: Great food, Authentic Mexican, Fun atmosphere

Cons: Long wait, Veg options aren't marked

Very good Mexican - Edit

This restaurant serves a number of vegetarian options, some that you'll find at any Mexican restaurant (cheese enchilladas, chile relleno) and others that are harder to come by.

They specialize in mole and have several different types with a variety of flavors (not just the well known version). All moles can be made with vegetables instead of the meat. You can ask for a sampler where they bring out all the moles for you to taste.

We've eaten here four times. The only dish we didn't like was the chile relleno, which was pedestrian. Otherwise, all the dishes are good and interesting variations on the traditional Mexican staples.

This place is very popular, and the wait can be very long. The seating area is small and you must wait outside. The inside is cramped and can be loud.

Pros: Mole, Diverse vegetarian selection

Cons: Long wait
