I went to this restaurant with family over the Thanksgiving week and was surprised at how poor the food was and how bad the service was. I will not go to this restaurant again.

Mexquite has everything that one would want in a local hangout! The ambience and environment are very inviting both inside and outside. They even have an outside area that feels secluded from the hustle and bustle of the nearby large strip mall. I could easily spend hours chatting with a friend there while being served lovely margaritas and other mixed... More

We do not live in CA but when we are in Folsom visiting family Mexquite is a must stop. The food is excellent and the service is quick. The menu is massive and what ever we pick we are always happy with our choice.

I'm really surprised at some of the joints in Folsom rated higher than Mexquite. This place has some excellent food, people. The Pollo in Chipotle was great. So was the Camorones Chipotle. The queso fundido was tasty if a bit greasy. Their salsa is roasted and very good! Margaritas. Yummo. The interior of Mexquite is really cool. Light and bright... More

I took my friend to Mexquite for her birthday after giving her a choice of cuisines. After starting with the complimentary chips and salsa, we had the fresh guacamole which was perfect. My friend ordered the chile verde with both corn and flour tortillas while I had the steak quesadilla. Both dishes were fresh, delicious and authentic. We split the... More

My wife was born in Nogales, Sonora Mexico and this is her favorite Mexican food restaurant in Placer County. That is saying something since she grew up eating her Mom's Mexican food, which is legendary. She had the chile relleno special, which is served with the chile cut open. She loved it! I really liked my shrimp enchilada. The fresh... More

This is a great full service Mexican food restaurant located in Empire Ranch. They have the traditional meals and some very good specials. A few favs are the fish tacos. If you like tequila then you will love this place because they have a huge tequila bar. The chips and salsa are fresh and warm.

My husband and I found this gem when looking for a restaurant for breakfast without the crowds on a Sunday. We were pleasantly surprised. The Huevos Rancheros and Huevos Divorciados are amazing. We have probably tried every restaurant in the area for our Sunday morning breakfast, and return to Mexquite frequently. The service is fantastic and the food is fresh... More

If you are looking for a hearty Mexican meal, this is the place. We particularly enjoy a morning walk and finishing with one of Mexquite's breakfasts.
