Servers at Gramma Mora's bear dishes from a menu of traditional Mora-family recipes to each table, filling the restaurant's welcoming digs with a warm bouquet of aromas. The chimichanga wraps chicken, steak, or chorizo in lightly fried flour tortillas like a sleepy bullfighter ($10.95), and the Burrito Ranchero bundles mexican sausage with melted cheese beneath a regal cloak of red chili sauce ($9.75). The hard taco's crispy corn-tortilla vault shelters its succulent contents, and fortifications of fresh veggies and cheese ($2.95) ward off overly complex salsa heists. Flan tops velvety custard with a sweet caramel glaze and a whipped-cream bonnet ($4.50).
Inside the kitchen at Gramma Mora’s, cooks flip sizzling shrimp and assemble four-cheese enchiladas, preparing succulent entrees that earned the restaurant the title of Best Tex-Mex Eatery in Buffalo from the readers of Artvoice in 2011. Seated at tables inset with tile, diners can taste dishes made from century-old recipes passed down through the Mora family. A vibrant mural of a Mayan pyramid in a lush jungle decorates one wall, next to guests consuming pork smothered in green-chili sauce or steak chimichangas. Caramel-glazed flan and lime margaritas provide notes of sweetness for diners who otherwise would have had to carry scoops of ice cream to the table in their pockets.
