A Mexican restaurant in Hamburg has new leadership and a new name.
The place at 5569 Camp Road is called Mexico City now. Elder Martinez has taken over from the former owner, Hector Martinez, who is a family member, she said.
The menu has been slimmed down for swifter service, and she has installed a screen-based ordering system to speed information to the kitchen, she said. Valle of Mexico II had often frustrated patrons and would-be patrons with slow service.
The new-look restaurant opened Oct. 11, she said. Reaction has been positive, with many customers stopping by for lunch, then returning with their family for dinner, she said.
Tacos ($2.59-$4.99), burritos ($8.95), and the Mexican sandwiches called tortas ($9.79) are available. So are plates ($14.95-$18.95) of meat, rice and beans with the mole, red and green sauces that were a hit at Valle of Mexico II. "It's the same family recipes," she said.
There is presently no alcohol, but she is applying for a full liquor license. Check out the menu at mexicocityhamburg.com.
Hours: 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday; 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday, Saturday. Closed Sunday, Monday. Phone: 202-1397.
