Downtown Fresno-- Good Mexican?

Can anyone recommend a good place for Mexican food in the downtown area?

  1. Castillos - a little bit east of actual downtown - take Ventura out to just past 7th Avenue - on left side of street (north)

    1. I haven't been to too many, but I 2nd Castillo's. I do not care for Lily's, although it's a favorite for some co-workers. Another co-worker loves La Torta, but I have not been. I've been to Castillo's a handful of times & I thought it was pretty good.

      1. If we're talking lunch; Toledo's. It may not look like much, but the food is excellent.

        1. Haven't been in a while but the molcajete dish (chicken, iirc) at Los Panchos used to be a winner,1000 Fulton Mall @ Tulare St. Tried the costillas at their sister place on E. Kings Canyon Rd. recently and was impressed.

          La Elegante in the 1400 block of Kern St. across the RR tracks is a great hole-in-the wall if you're looking for lunch.
