Beginning in early 2000, lines began forming outside a little known bodega that had opened in 2000. As the years passed, the lines got longer and longer. Today that grocery store still maintains long lines of hungry diners awaiting tasty tacos al pastor (spicy pork and pineapples), home-made tamales or the traditional and always succulent tortas. But now you no longer have to wait in long lines inside the deli because the owner, Adrian Mejia, has partnered with another food lover, Sergio Romero, both from Puebla, Mexico, and they’ve decided to give their loyal following a place to sit. Because of their love of wholesome food, they opened Mexico 2000, their restaurant that is a tribute to authentic Mexican food.
For Adrian and Sergio, life would be passionless without their traditional food. So they decided to expand the bodega in order to continue serving authentic and fresh (Puebla) Mexican food—the kind they grew up with at home. Following traditions of Mexican cuisine, like picking only fresh and ready ingredients, they serve crispy, fresh tacos, bewitching enchiladas, mouthwatering burritos and fiery fajitas topped with traditional Pueblo sauces such as mole poblano, chipotle, and Adobo. Come see what such sauces should taste like—savory and layered—with smoke, spice and tanginess. Home truly is where the heart is here. Comfort Mexican food is the main reason why people flock here. Another is that, at this neighborly place, you’ll find many locals having a good time sipping on crisp, freshly made margaritas and ice-cold cervezas. They’ve not let the transition change the essence of good taste. The transition from bodega to full-service restaurant doesn’t change the quality, only the variety and added comfort. Some things have changed though: The choices on the menu and portions. Both have gotten bigger. When you leave here, Sergio and Adrian want you to be sure you’ve tasted both the aromatic, delicious food of Mexico, and experience the heart-warming culture in their service.
Now the owners and staff would like to welcome you to taste the traditional food of Puebla, Mexico.
