Don't expect New Mexico or Calif quality mex food at Mex. But for Rochester, it its pretty darn good. A mex restaurant in Canadaigua is better. But they had a fire. Margaritas at Mex quite good and inexpensive.

Pretty busy on a Fri. night. Service was slow, but food was served hot. We went because we had a coupon and probably wouldn't return without one. We prefer several other Mexican Restaurants in the city.
