I'm looking to eat some good molé and have only found La Magarita downtown to have it. Does anyone know of other good spots that aren't too expensive?

I am no authority on molé, but I would perhaps run over a waiter or two to get at the molé at Rosario's. Oh my gosh...so good.

El Mirasol on Blanco, and I presume it's sister restaurant SoLuna on Broadway, has pretty good mole.

Went to the Taqueria Jimador on Monday cause I had to go all the way to my Post Office located next door to this restaurant. This is right off IH10 and had a late lunch of their mole special for $5.99 including tea was very good.

I've had many moles and this just had a different punch to it -- in a good way.

Many local mexican restaurants have good mole and I suspect mostly use the paste that comes in a jar and then thinned with chicken stock. Making it from scratch can me time consuming. I would go to one of the mexican restaurants you frequent and like and try theirs if you haven't.

If you are near the main post office on Perrin Beitel, you may want to try Las Carretas. They have pretty good mole and have very good lunch specials ($6.99) that include milanesa, calabasita and many others depending what time of day of the week you go. Probably more information than you wanted, but there you have it....lol.

Let us know what you find.

Try Picante Grille on Broadway. It's mostly interior Mex food.

Note: there is no accent on the Spanish word "mole". It's pronounced with a stress on the first syllable (MOH-lay), not on the second (moh-LAY).

That's the Spanish lesson for the day. Mole is an awesome food, I used to love watching the Mexican cooks in Mexico prepare it from scratch, there is so much stuff that goes into it. In Oaxaca they have several colors of mole, red, yellow, brown, etc. If it's made right, it's absolutely delicious. People are sometimes surprised to discover that it has chocolate in it, but that has always been part of the recipe. Chocolate does, after all, go all the way back to the Aztecs, who called it "xocolatl" which translates to "bitter water". Yummy.

There are as many styles of moles as their are regions in Mexico.

My favorite is at Los Barrios on Blanco.
