Luzmila's is right aroud the corner from our house, so we've gotten takeout there a number of times. It's been consistently good - not absolutely first-rate, maybe, but generally very good. The chicken con mole poblano (the first thing I try at any Mexican restaurant, since it's not easy to make and is a good test of the cook's skills, and when done well is one of the world's great comfort foods) is quite good, the chicken tender and well-cooked and the mole clearly homemade. The tacos carne asada are another go-to dish: the meat is tender and not overcooked or dry, the pico de gallo is fresh and tasty, and the tortillas are homemade, not commercial (always a good sign). The sopa de albondigas (mexican meatball soup), which is served a la carte or as a side to the dinner plates, is really excellent. In fact everything we've had there has been quite good to excellent in quality.
We've always gotten takeout, and frankly the dining area looks kind of cold and uninviting. But when you want good Mexican food for takeout, you won't find better than Luzmila's.
I am by no means a food critic. I do see people in there eating so apperently somebody like their food. And I admit that the one in Arcata is slightly better, nevertheless, I will not eat here again. The service was okay. It is over priced for what they serve. The ground beef smelled and looked like it was taken from a can of cat food. I am not saying that it was, I'm just saying that the ground beef was bad. After just a few bites I called it quits. When I was asked how is it by the server I could not bring myself to say to him what I have mentioned here. I did come one other time because it was a group gathering and I tried something different it was only slightly better. No body there was rude or anything like that but they need to go back to the drawing board on what and how to cook Mexican food. Maybe after a year or so I will go back and give them another try, but for now there are plenty of other Mexican resturants that are more impressive.
