Housemade Mole

Looking for Mexican restaurants that make their mole from scratch. Looking for traditional ancho-based style, but open to trying anything that is not started from a commercial bottled/canned product. Oak Cliff easier for me to get to, but, "Have car and will travel." Holes-in-the wall welcome. Decor/service/happy hour do not get extra points.

  1. I can think of a lot of places that used to serve mole poblano (less for mole negro) but they all closed because people get upset when a place doesn't serve the standard tex mex. It's a sad state of affairs. Cafe San Miguel does have a couple moles on their menu, but not the dark poblano based varieties. I see it on the menu at Maximo but I haven't had a chance to try it out yet. Same with Gonzalez, surely somebody can tell you whether their version is fresh or bottled.
