This little restaurant sits tucked away in a strip shopping center so you need to look for it. But you will be rewarded with delicious, cooked-to-order simple fare. We regularly eat here because of the consistency and good value. Warm chips and fresh salsa are better than any of the other Mexican restaurants in the area. I love the Chalupas... More

Ordered the Carnitas Asada. Came out over cooked and to a staff that did not care. The meat was thin and I had to try to cut it with a serrated knife which was difficult. The meat was not fit for consumption . recommend to stay away from this place.

Tucked away in small shopping plaza on the South Side of Hwy 20, across from the old K Mart shopping center. Old Mexico offers good food, fast service and a taste of Mexico.

We were pleasantly surprised. Everything was good, if average. Nothing really stands out, but I have no complaints. I will try them again in the evening and... More

The waitress messed up our order, even after I told her in Spanish and English. The food was bad and we found part of a straw hat in our food. The place was almost completely dead. Never going back!

We have been to several of the OldMexico restaurants in other nearby towns, so when we were driving through Niceville we were excited to stop here. The fact that the restaurant was completely empty should have been a clue, but since it was well after 1:00 pm, hoped that we had just missed the lunch rush. We both made it... More

The food was dismal- better food at Taco Bell. The margatrita machine was broke so no frozen drinks.
