Fodor's Review

Javier Barajas, the congenial owner and host of this colorful cantina chain, named it for his home in Mexico. He presents outstanding specialties that he learned to cook while growing up in the culinary capital of Michoacán. Many menu items are named for his relatives, including flautas Mama Chelo (corn tortillas filled with chicken). Michoacán is known for its carnitas, so don't miss them. Or try the cabrito birria de chivo (roasted goat with red mole sauce). Guacamole is made table-side. Finish with the flan, a silken wonder. Barajas has two other locations around the city, and has had a hand in two other similar restaurants—Bonito Michoacán and Viva Michoacán—on Decatur Boulevard and Sunset Road, respectively.
