“Fine Mexican Cuisine? It's here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2013

Memo's is near the heart of old town Concord, just off Todos Santos plaza, and well worth the time to find them and stop in for a meal. This small restaurant is operated by a father-daughter pair who consistently provide a very welcoming and intimate atmosphere for experiencing an authentic and carefully crafted Mexican meal. My favorites include the posole, carnitas, and the house specialty, chicken pipian (with pumpkin seeds).

“Will not return - disapointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2012

The wait staff was atrocious. Drinks were served after the food came. The Tortillias came out some 4 minutes after the main dishes. The Quesadillas were served cold, the Carnitas was dry as a bone, and the special Chicken pumpkin seed mole other reviewers rave about seemed to warmed up in a microwave and had a chalky consistency. Lastly the room was not clean. Very disappointing. Sadly, I'll have to stick to Berkeley, Oakland, and SF for good Mexican food.

“Hidden Treasure in Concord”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2012

What makes it for me at a restaurant is when the owners and chefs really care. This tiny treasure offers great and uncommon Yucatan cuisine, including pipian, which is amazing. Let them know what you like and indulge in some treats you may find almost nowhere else.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2012

No recent reviews, but we had heard it was a good lunch spot. Seems like they have fallen on hard times, few patrons, food bland to mediocre. Good service, but not one of the three of us were impressed with our food. We will not be back

“Authentic food, wonderful quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2011

Worth the cost because of the quality. Unique for Mexican Restaurants. Go there and enjoy a wonderful father daughter team who own this restaurant and care about quality and good food.
