    One thing I missed in the Philippines was really good Mexican food. I had to make my own at home when I wanted it. I had my own corn masa for corn tortillas to make enchiladas with. It would be nice for Duma to get a nice, authentic Mexican restaurant.

    I could see how this conversation might have played out (names changed...)

    Jane: Thank goodness we're all moved in! Now all we have to do is take the old sign down.
    John: But it's HUGE!
    Jane: Good point. F*** it. Let's just leave it up.

    UPDATE!!! By the way! The hours are 9am to 9pm. Dining area is clean with open seating and a hostess greeting you at the door. Orders are placed easily and COLD service water is provided without request. There is a bar and alcoholic beverages are offered as well as shakes. The host and hostess crew is very courteous and prompt. An expansive menu; there are traditional Mexican dishes, Philippino cuisine, and American; with promises of adding more as the restaurant grows. With all of the choices it is easy to eat here more than once a week! The tortillas are hand made from mesa, the wrap is whole wheat, the salsa is fresh with real cilantro! The guacamole is simply amazing, chilled with a creamy blend of tomatoes and a hint of cilantro! This folks is authentic cooking with love! The balance of fresh flavors with talented cooking. Well done Juan and crew - I am thankful for the good food and warm welcome! I wish you many more good days in the future.

    Las Mariachi's is the name-I live very close and LOVE IT-the menu is evolving and they're adding new things it seems--the tacos and burritos are smallish but so tasty-the refried beans totally rock..IMHO lol
    FYI the Filipino is very good and inexpensive-they usually have 2-3 Filipino dishes in a buffet style- the Bicol Express was good-

    I had lunch at Los Mariachis yesterday (during brownout).
    They had a small genny running and the ac was working. I'm not an expert on Mexican food but I really enjoyed the Enchiladas with guacamole and refried beans. The service was very good - friendly, quick and they asked if I was happy with the food. Beer was cold, and they brought complimentary corn chips. Surprisingly little noise from the traffic. The place is clean and bright - a little bare looking at the moment but the owner says that's a work in progress.
    All in all, it's a pleasant little place, good food, good value and excellent staff.

    i was there around the same time too... we comprised of a rather large group of four adults and two young children. have to agree that it was nice to find solace during a brown out and the service was exemplary also the beer was cold. chips were served in a bean dip and tortillas looked like they were skillfully hand moulded on premises (don’t see much of that any more).

    everything we tried was delicious: tacos al pastor, lingua, etc. chicken enchiladas were colorful and tasty too. very much enjoyed the experience.
