We stopped by after the Tuesday farmers market in Concord at Todo's Santos Square. What a wonderful surprise. We had heard that they are opening a new restaurant in Rio Vista at the Point and we had to stop and try the food. The chef owner really cares and is passionate about there food. You can sense the pride.

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).

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.

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.

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
