We wanted to eat Mexican for one night. This place was one we spotted on route. The outside is pretty at night. It is a big place, but not too crowded. The inside is decorated very well. The staff was very friendly to us:) The chips and salsa were very good. Our order came in a good time frame and... More

The service was fast and friendly. The food wasn't bad, but didn't have as much flavor as I was expecting. My son got a vegetarian meal and he liked his. He said it had a really good flavor. It was however very quick and food didn't take long to get once ordered.

Just finished great meal at Mi Mexico. Friendly staff. Greeted and seated promptly. Chips were hot. Salsa was little better than average with good flavor. My taste buds like a little more spice heat, but it definitely was not bad. Food was brought out quickly and Hot. I had the carne asada. Flavor was good and the portion was nice.... More

I can usually find something nice(however small) to say about any place that I have been to. This place is an exception. The food was awful from the salsa to the fajitas. Mexican food is one of my favorites. Worst fajitas that I have ever been served. The meat in them was almost nonexistent and cut in tiny pieces(maybe for... More

Ate with a group of educators while working at a conference. Good basic Mexican good. Large portions. Really good queso. Had confusion with ticket being applied to wrong credit card and could not get an itemized receipt for reimbursement. Overall good experience.

Maybe it's typically better. We had not great service. We had to get up after 10-15 minutes to find someone to wait on us. Everything seemed to take forever. Food was so so to good. Would try again. Just service seemed under par.

Went for lunch with business colleagues. Offered several lunch items. Chimichanga was awesome! Chips and salsa were great.

We got there late (9pm) and we were served a nice hot meal and not rushed out, which is what I expected to happen. Beer was quart size, which was needed at that time of night. Food was very good - had enchilada w/rice & beans. Started with the house tortillas and salsa. Companion was surprised at the strong Mole... More
