For more than 30 years, Gramma Mora’s culinary masterminds have infused traditional Mexican dishes with memorable flavors culled from Mora family recipes. Dinner parties can dine inside or machete through an underbrush of shredded lettuce and taco shells to sit in the outdoor seating area, where they can devour house specialties such as the shrimp-fajita dinner, or the flautas, a fried trio of chicken-stuffed corn tortillas dolloped with cheese and sour cream. Skilled cooks transform tortillas into meaty missiles such as the chorizo and cheese burrito dinner designed to detonate meat chunks in less than one bite. Just as vegetarians reach for their granola holsters, numerous meatless entrees materialize in creative forms that include the veggie fajita dinner and the pueblo’s platter, which sets tongue fires with red and green chile enchiladas easily extinguished with cool sips of lime or strawberry-flavored margarita and sangria.
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.
