Delicious food, went to them shortly after Hurricane Ida and even with limited menu they did a stellar job and were so friendly. Can't wait to enjoy more of their full menu, highly recommend their birria or pupusas!

#EATLOCAL #LATINX #TACOTUEADAY #NOLAEATS I can hashtag all day long, this spot is most definitely a spot to get your taco Tuesday onnnn! Located in Metairie they are in a strip mall, so parking is easy to find! About this place, it's just everything! You walk into see the open kitchen and staff cooking everything made fresh my gosh it tingled all my senses. My order consisted of birria tacos, pupusas, tacos hondurenos, and tamales! You won't be disappointed, your taste buds thanking you, your stomach hugging you, and your appetite ready for more. I just can't say enough of how much I enjoyed their food!! Pupusas yummy, cheeses bean bread pockets so good that it makes Me want to cry. Those dang Birria A1 QUALITY with all the fixing sheesh. My fave it Ms though were these hondureno tacos from the shell to the filling and the cheese like I was transported inside of someone kitchen and just smothering my soul with this goodness made me so happy. 10/10 someone bring me 2 plates please.

I've come here a couple of times for Birria tacos and quesadillas and they are delicious! I really need to branch out and try other items but they are just too good! Even though this place is close to me in my neighborhood I never knew about it until 2020 when they became more of a restaurant and less of a supplier. Very limited seating, so grab some food and eat outside or dine at home

Best customer service ever!!! I picked up a to go order of the Birria tacos (which are available every day now if you haven't been here in a while) and once I got home and comfy, I realized I did not have what I ordered. I called Mawi and not only were they expecting my call, but they offered me a refund OR to come deliver the correct order to my house. I opted in for the delivery and not only did they bring me my food but they brought me some delicious desserts. It's been a while since I've seen this type of personal customer service and I am now a lifelong Mawi customer!

Let me start off by saying the customer service was great. I ordered the quesadillas which were $9 and they were the best I’ve ever had. They were meaty and cheesy. I also had the sweet hibiscus drink it was delicious also. I can’t wait to go back tomorrow to get the birra nachos.

This has got to be the freshest most delicious source of locally made corn tortillas. And their my resource of some really good queso! And all these veggies...ORGANIC ! And the corn for the tortillas is non-gmo! And the cheeses are out of this world authentic from El Salvador / Honduras. One last And...No Preservatives on anythinggggg!
