What People are Saying

I would give this tiny restaurant a 4.75 out of 5 to be honest. I had the fajitas with mixed meats of chicken, asada and shrimp, it was cooked perfectly. The rice was good, though I thought it was a little bland. The only thing I didn’t care for were the refried beans. They were watery and lacked flavor, but the rest of my food was great! The staff were so nice and so friendly it made up for the beans. If I were to visit again I would definitely try the cocktails, they looked delicious! It is a very small restaurant from the outside, if you’re not paying attention you could miss it. Once inside it’s a good size and beautiful space. Very clean too.

Rajas Con Crema es un restaurante con una vibra casera y un toque de elegancia sin dejar atrás a su excelente sabor autentico! Cómo si eso fuera poco, agrégale la atención especial de uno de los dueños, Javier y tienes la perfecta combinación para una noche agradable acompañado por tu pareja, y unos ricos platillos de Rajas Con Crema y Enchiladas de Mole! Mmmm! Pero donde varios restaurantes de primera calidad fallan, Rajas Con Crema se luce! De estar impuesto al típico menú de postres. Javier nos presenta a probar la nieve de vainilla con un aderezo de Guayaba hecho en casa acompañado por un perfecto café de holla!! No es por demás decir que Rajas Con Crema es nada menos de excelencia! Recomendado al 100%! Muchas gracias Javier por tus atenciones y muchas felicidades a ti y a tu esposa Chef Alicia, la maestra detrás del gran sabor! PS está decidido contratar sus servicios de catering para Nuestra Boda próximamente!

We came across Rajas con Crema, and this place is cozy, family oriented, and the food really hit the spot! I recommend this place to all, if you are into real Mexican cuisine! The plates that we tried were delicious! Patrons were very friendly and recommended the plates for us to be surprised! But you have to try the Main dish; Rajas con Crema! Great flavor and consistency!

Javier and Alicia the owners provide quality services! This was a fine establishment and I recommend anyone come visit!
