We always order the chips, salsa and guacamole to start. The chicken chimi is one of our favorites too!

We’ve eaten here several times. The food has always been very good but the service can be hit or miss.

We walked into this place and it appeared to be dirty and it had a smell to it. It was an immediate turn off. Did not stay walked out as soon as we walked in.

This place has some great Mexican food, however every time I've ever been here the service has been less than desirable. In the fall the offer gobbleritos which is by far their best dish.

Mad Mex is always a good choice for lunch or dinner!! Many options...protein & vegetarian! Burritos, salads and wings are always fresh! Happy hour is from 4:30 till 6:30. Margaritas are not weak!!

This place is dark, loud and full of hipster millenials. For us "over 40" crowd, the "vibe" is a little too much. Some servers have the millenial attitude, but most are friendly. Food is not-your-typical Mexican fare...kinda "hipsterized", but fresh and flavorful. Great burritos, tacos...More
