The food is very good and you get large portions. It is a local fast food type restaurant. Weekends are busy.

First off, the spelling is VIEJO, but all the reviews are on this misspelled one. The place is popular and busy on a Saturday night. Alas, my search for a good, basic burrito TO GO continues. Everywhere else a burrito is beans, rice and meat, but again, oddly, not here. SO, I had to create my own burrito with beans,... More

The food quality is good and they have some of the hottest jalapenos I have ever had (get them from the salsa bar). My husband prefers the chicken burrito and the rest of us go with bean and cheese. The burritos can be overstuffed and messy but they are delicious. We get burritos here almost every weekend because they are... More

I order the bacon and potato burrito with extra onions. It is big enough to share. It is great and the price is very reasonable. They also have a large selection of Mexican food for lunch. Their business is probably about 20/20 eat in or takeout.

I have always seen Mexico Viejo as I shop in that area but until last week had never gone in. I have my favorite Mexican place and when I am in that area it's to get Pizza, wings, or Sushi. The place is always busy which I have always found was an indicator of good food. Yep, I was right... More

Was a bit peckish after arriving late at my motel so I thought I'd try Mexican fare and saw this small, out of the way, local joint. Nothing fancy about it but I ordered a carne asada burrito expecting something the size of what you get at Taco Bell. Wrong! The burrito was huge and felt like it weighed 1... More

Best breakfast burritos. Make sure you get BACON in it! Great salsa, fast service. One of the few fast food mexican restaurants that won't have your stomach hurting a few hours later (if you know what I mean...)

Mexico Viejo is a great place to grab lunch when you are in the mood for something quick and tasty. The place is always clean and the food is consistently good. Avoid the high school kids crowd between 11:45 and 12:30 on weekdays and everything should be great. It's your typical taco shop with a cleaner atmosphere and better food.... More
