Nice clean space with large selections of aguas frecas, paletas, Nieves and more. The fruit is fresh and you get a lot for the price.

If you're looking for a delicious Mexican snack, this is the place to go. They have great aguas frescas, paletas, nachos, ice cream and more. I drove by this place one day and discovered it by "accident" and it's one of my favorites. They have an incredibly delicious tres leches paleta, you all have to try it!!! ----- Este lugar está perfecto para comprar snacks tradicionales de mexico, tienen aguas frescas, paletas, nieves, nachos y muchas cosas más! Me gusta mucho el lugar, tuve suerte de descubrirlo por accidente un día. Si un día van aquí, tienen que probar una paleta de tres leches, está buenísima, súper cremosita y dulce!

The Obispo were not shaved ice even the snow cones would have been better it seemed like the ice was that of the crushed ice setting straight from the fridge. The Fresas con crema were to watery and yet way to sweet some of the strawberries were to ripe to be used and yet were. The agua de freitas was missing the creamy taste and the fruits was just melon and apple chunks. They shouldn't be allowed to use la michocana name it misrepresents.

The elotes were hard and cold, you would take a bite and the entire kernel would come out and be hard to chew. It didnt really have flavor either, it just tasted like salt-less chili powder. Also if you don't know what comes on something and ask nicely to change it, they will say no because it's a waste of their food so you're s**t out of luck (even if youre allergic to something). Both of my children also got sick from the food and I'm glad I was only on vacation and won't ever have the opportunity to pass by there and be reminded of their nasty food... the only good thing about them is their ice cream and juices. Dont waste ur money here when there are much better options where you won't have to leave feeling dissapointed.

Amazing Icecream and food it's perfect for these not that hot summers

Let's say that your "bucket list" suddenly became "modified!". Before you "kick the bucket" you want to experience every Paleteria in New Mexico. After all, This Paleteria is named for Michoacan just west of Mexico City, where it's believed that Paleteria's Paletas frozen ice and Mexican ice cream bars were born. This is a large comfortable paleteria. My mouthwatering Coconut Paleta bar dipped in Dark Chocolate bathed in sliced Almonds cooled my heat from this 90 plus degreezz day. It's that good. Enjoy and please follow me on this Paleteria Adventure. Thanks for reading. Avram De Paquime

So glad I found this place. It's so worth the visit. Popsicles for less than 2 bucks. I tried the mango, strawberry and the guava. I ordered the milky mango and starwberry. My favorite was then mango then the starwberry then the guava. I really don't recommend the guava if you like more milky and creamy popsicles. However, if you enjoy icy popsicles then you may enjoy the guava. Please take a look at my photos and feel free to ask me any questions you may have.

Only about 100 different flavors of artisanal popsicles!

Erin Haynes

Delicious! A wonderful place to grab a tasty snack. This place stays pretty busy. It's clean and the food actually looks like the pictures! Good for an afternoon treat with your kiddos or a sweet treat with your hunny.

Mo Torres

Owner over charge for 2nd time I purchased paletas and horchata. I call them too make it right i spoke with husband and he is a very nice guy. But she. Was rude. And didnâ??t give me money back. So count your change and check on prices because she will over charge you 1 xtra on everything...

I love that place the chips ice cream evry thing

Rachel Morrill

Love their coconut drink and the fruita, Perfect for hydration and me replenishing electrolytes

Laura Gomez

Fresh ingredients--just keep in mind that when they list the flavors, they *mean* those flavors. Fresa y queso sounds like it should mean cheese cake, but it's quite literally strawberries and cheese. (Which I like, but they do have more traditional flavors for those with a less adventurous palette)

alexanderia weeding

I love the fruit and fruit drinks. A great stop for a snack,everyone in a while...I did prefer white corn, not the chewy white corn.

Luzelena V

Bought banana split but bananas ð?? were missing. Staff apologized and tried to make it right. We said no. Great ice cream

Stan Alexander

This place is a little gem that is always busy and serves some of the most interesting deserts that you will find in the city! The paletas come in an amazing assortment of flavors, the ice cream is very unique, and the other items on the menu look more than interesting!

Chris Q

The best elote en vaso and yummy fruit paletas.

Iris Nocchi

This is a lil "hole in the wall" kind of place but if you're looking for antojo kind of foods with great customer service then look no further! The food is delicious, generous portions with reasonable prices. The fruit is always flavorful and fresh, the aguas are so delicious and fresh tasting, the ice cream and paletas (fruit, fruit juice, or ice cream) are delicious (no freezer burn), and the other food selections are prepared fresh to order. It's always worth the drive from Belen to Albuquerque!

Never disappointed. Always high quality ice cream bars.

La Michoacana stocks very tasty paletas, agua frescas, ice cream, and other cool treats at easy to afford prices. I've found the interior to be bright, festive, and clean. Big north facing windows flood the space with light. Plenty of parking spaces along the front of their emporium on Zuni Road SE a couple blocks east of San Pedro. Seating is offered at a bar along those street facing windows & at tables in a space decorated with murals of (I assume) Michoacan state in Mexico. Staff is always super friendly. These folks keep the good vibes turned way up. Every. Single. Time!! And their hustle is impressive too. They're quick to offer nibble size samples of the ice cream flavors if you're looking even slightly confused or uncertain on your choice. And for us gringos they're very patient explaining ingredients or products that are new to us. Their ice cream is very rich & comes in around $1.25 per scoop. Well worth it. I find a double scoop makes a satisfactory cool down for a not-so-big guy on a warm Burque spring day. Now if I can just get my taste buds to love more than just their pecan flavor ice cream. Somehow it is always what winds up in my hand. Agua frescas are delicious with natural fruit flavors. They also serve cups of chunked up fruit with your choice of juice poured over it. They've also got hot chimay (sp) spice to sprinkle on your cool treat if you think it needs a little jacking up. It offers a nice spicy contrast to the sweet smoothness of their frozen goodies. So stop in & check out this mom-and-pop shop who provide a wide selection of delectable cool treats from insanely friendly staff. Summer's coming & these folks have the cure by the scoop, cup, or on a stick.

This is a great authentic Mexican ice cream shop. They have unique flavors like cantaloupe and mango that you donâ??t find everywhere. My favorite is where they put the salsa in a bag of chips of your choosing and you eat it with a spoon. This is a great place for a summer treat to cool off.

Chris Espinoza

The food there is very good I recommend 3 Maria's

Scott R.

Cucumber con chile paleta for $1.40 was delicious and refreshing. Friendly staff. Lots of choices. I will be back to try other flavors. Not the greatest part of town. but worth the effort.


Bomb!!! Elotes ice cream y todo im sure what ever you get youll love it

Nicole A.

This place is amazing!! Not only is it all delicious & inexpensive but the staff is very kind, the place is clean, & the service is fast. They have everything you could possibly thing of. I highly recommend this place!!

Would you like to take your 5 senses on a field trip? Then look no further, because this is the place to be! The elote alone is perfect for a cold day... served in a cup. Their chamomix is out of this world! Filled with mango/lime ice cream, chamoy, tajin, fresh mangos & topped with a few gummies. Their agua mineral preparada is like a michelada with no beer...sooo good! It would be an added plus w/ a drive thru! Delicioso!

Chris B.

Ohh myy goodnessss! This place is the single best reason that I saw, to not forsake knowing Spanish. The ice cream, creamery, gelato, Paleta bar, aqua fresca bar that greets you right in the front when you walk in, is something divine. Not only is everything marvelous for the eyes to behold, but beyond delicious for the mouth to savor, also very inexpensive! I wish I knew about this place sooner, as it could be a daily treat on the hotter summer days. I think everyone should go and check them out... they really have something for everyone, unless, you're a diabetic / watching your weight. Then no, don't go there, as you'll be too sad that you can't partake in all their mouth watering goodies

Ruth Sandoval

Everything was so good, menu isn't that extensive or has many options but what they do offer it's prepared well and fast. Great service too.

Gerrit K.

This place has dozens of amazingly delicious paletas, plus a dozen or more ice creams, aquas frescas, and lots of snacks and treats to accompany them. Definitely worth going out of your way to enjoy these desserts. I recommend the cream based ones, but the ice based paletas are delicious as well. They're open early enough to enjoy after lunch and late enough to be able to enjoy them after dinner.

Vanessa Cabada

I recommend everything on the menu especially dorinachos con queso,elote y jalapeños.hmmm

Stephanie M.

The food here is amazing!! They mostly smell Mexican antojos which are basically appetizing snacks including ice cream, fruit juices, nachos and chips made to order. The service is prompt and self seating. My favorite things to order at a michoacana are fresas con crema(strawberries and cream) agua de melón(cantaloupe juice) and hot Cheetos with nacho cheese, jalapeños and corn. Highly recommend this place!!
