Our Reviews:

- Nachos Mamas



The Nachos Mamas is one of the most popular menu items at El Vez, featuring fresh tomato salsa, jalapenos, black beans, pickled red onions, and a perfect amount of cheese. The chips are perfectly crispy and each one of them manages to be topped with every other ingredient in the dish, so you never are eating a plain chip. The cheese and the pickled red onions are the stars of this dish as the texture and slight sweetness of the red onion balance the salty, gooeyness of the cheese.


- Beef Short Rib Enchiladas



The Beef Short Rib Enchiladas combine juicy short rib, fresh salsa, and tangy epazote under a generous layer of Mexican chile sauce. The chile sauce tastes quite similar to the typical barbecue sauce but has a noticeable kick. Finally, the epazote and the salsa add a slightly sweet and tangy flavor to the enchiladas, which pairs well with the chile sauce and the melt-in-your-mouth texture of the beef.


- Carne Asada Mission Burrito



The Carne Asada Mission Burrito is a hearty, simple burrito that exemplifies the flavorful simplicity of mission-style burritos. The first bite is met with a light crunch as the flaky texture of the tortilla gives way to bountiful amounts of rice, guacamole, and pieces of beef. The carne asada is perfectly cooked and is generously spread throughout each half of the quite large burrito.
