Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I have been to Mago about five times now, we like it. The shrimp emanadas are to die for. Moles are very good and a wide variety. We were put off our last two visits though. Our visit before this last one I had the Aroz con Pollo, I could see it is a great dish but was prepared too salty. Our most recent visit, the green dipping sauce was very salty and the heat in the other dipping sauces and one of the other sauces with our dinner (not a mole) was too spicy for us also. We will go back and hope they see this about the salt and the heat in the food."

  • "I am no expert on authentic Mexican cuisine, however, in my opinion, Mago does a great job. The food was extremely flavorful and the margaritas were INCREDIBLE. If you just want a good margarita, this is the spot to go. The acoustics were terrible however. This made it very hard to talk. So if you don't mind yelling through your dinner, you'll be very pleased with this restaurant."

  • "Our 1st visit and really impressed! Best part was the freshly made guacamole. The margaritas and food were delicious! Our waiter was great along w the rest of the staff. Not overly priced. We will be returning soon!"

  • "Chef combines various flavors and styles from Latin America and Mexico to great wonderful flavors. Presentation is another strong point of his. Indoor seating when full gets a bit loud, so I suggest outdoors. The table side guacamole is fantastic and the Chicken Tinga is to die for!"

  • "Food was very bland for Mexican food. I know why people would like it though-it was very Americanized."

  • "We have heard from many how good Mago's is, and finally went for dinner on a Saturday night. We were not disappointed. The bartender was excellent and made awesome margaritas. The food was outstanding, as was the service. We will dine here for sure again in the future."

  • "Overall, I rate this restaurant 5 stars. I got seated right away since I had made reservations. The service was fairly good, the waitress was dragging at times with our drinks, and for the check. The food was very delicious and very tasty as well as the drinks. I enjoyed eating the guacamole. This was a very good experience and I would like to come here again. I recommend this place to anyone who enjoys mexican food."

  • "First thing to know leave your stroller at home they are not allowed in the restaurant even if they fold down. They did store mine for me but I would imagine for dinner they would not be as forgiving on their policy (I dined for lunch and it wasn't busy). Nice surprise you get a bowl of soup with your meal. I didn't get to adventurous with my meal just had quesadillas and they were fine (guar good & the green salsa too). My friend had the burrito and it was huge but it was $11. I did not like how the minute we were done eating our main course they completely cleared the table since my group was still enjoying the chips and trying to taste the 3 different salsas they provided. I felt we were being kicked out."

  • "Once again Mago Grill has surpassed my expectations from the wonderful greeting to the service, cleanliness and quickness with our meals being brought out quickly and to perfection! Mago Grill will always be one of my favorite places to dine whether it be just to grab a bite to eat or to celebrate a special occasion!"

  • "We have been to this location before, decided to go on Fathers day at 7:30....the noise lever was so bad we could not hear each other and most of all the service was horrible. The food is not good enough to put up with the rest...we had to even wait for napkins and silverware. Will not return to this location."

  • "We had a lovely table in the middle of the restaurant, our waitress was very nice, we ordered our beverages, and the waitress was most helpful in making our decision. The beverages came quickly as did the guac cart. The guac cart attendant was not happy with her job even after our tip. We then waited, for our lunch - the restaurant was busy, but not crowded, it was very loud. Asked our waitress about our lunch, she said that two items - quesadilla and burrito were not complete yet, and those should both be simple items. Our food arrived and was luke warm, even cool, we didn't send it back because we were starving and waited for over an hour to get it!"

  • "The menu is different than the others that offer Mexican food. Guacamole is very tasty, and fish tacos were very good with spicy slaw! Mojitos are awesome also. We ate early on the weekend and we were not stressed by lines of people waiting for a table. Service was nice also"

  • "I was really worried about my dad liking the food because he is so picky with new restaurants and especially when it comes to seal dishes but he loved it. And my godparents came as well and they also loved the food. My mom was pretty happy with her choice too. "

  • "My husband and I come to Mago often, it's close to home but we come for the food. I love the Tilapia with peanut mole and poblano mashed potato's. It such a good dish and a huge serving. I always have half for lunch the next day. "

  • "This has been my favorite restaurant since they opened. We go to Mago a lot for dinner, birthdays or date night. I have to say on my last 2 visits I was disappointed. Our last visit was on a Monday night 4/21 so not very busy. I always get the same thing the Fajitas Estilo Mago. They come in a tall stone bowel that is usually boiling hot (a good thing). It took 45 minutes to get our food and it was warm at best. The soup was not hot and the cheese was not even melted on my fajitas and it had hardly any sauce. I went to the bathroom and it was dusty & dirty. The door on the stall was broken, toilet paper was not on the rolls it way just laying there. I took my mom her for her birthday on a Friday night and had a similar experience. "

  • "Went here for my birthday and the food was delicious. The desert stole the show it was sooo good ( caramel flan) Also if you go on your bday they give you a cool Mexican hat to keep and wear the rest of the night if you wish lol . Also I can't say enough about their delicious drinks. I had the passion fruit sangria and the pina coloda mojito , the mojito transported me to Cancun it was so tasty! My friends and I split the salmon with coconut mole and shrimp empanadas and we all enjoyed them very much . Over all great dining experience. I was so glad we had reservations and were seated right away because that place gets packed! "

  • "Mago Grill is an energetic place, with interesting food and spicy salsas. I enjoyed the cheese quesadillas with chihuahua cheese as an appetizer. I'm not a fan of margaritas, but the Ilusion margaritas we had were delicious. I couldn't resist having a second one. I recommend the salmon with coconut mole. It was sweet and spicy and just delicious. My wife had the carne asada tampiquena, and it was tender and tasty. There was a mariachi playing the night we went, so be prepared for a noisy, but enjoyable fiesta. We'll be back!"

  • "Mego was crowded so we were glad we mad reservations. The food is an interesting blend of traditional Mexican with a bit of experimentation. Everything we tried was very good and more interesting than most Mexican restaurants. The service was wonderful. We will go back."

  • "We went on a thurs, they had $5 Sangira's, Very good! They had a Mariachi band, even though they were good, it was alittle too Loud due to the resturant being a little small. We had a Groupon and in the beginning after metioning it to the Server she said we coudl split the check amongst our group then at the end when we asked to split th echeck we were told no! Not very customer friendly at that point. Also the server didnt come back to the tble often to see if we needed more drinks or anytign for that matter. Food was good as always, enjoy the fresh made Guac!"

  • "We had a coupon so decided to try this restaurant. We ordered a margarita each, the guacamole appetizer (which was made table-side and very good) and a variety of main courses. I personally had shrimp enchiladas which tasted good but for the price ($14), were extremely small portioned. The beans and rice took up more of the serving plate than the enchiladas. Between 3 diners which had enchiladas, a burrito, one drink each and shared the appetizer, a $90 bill (before groupon) was pretty ridiculous. The margaritas, while OK, at $8.50 a piece, were served in a glass half the size of a soda can. Also, the high ceilings make conversation impossible. There are many better choices for mexican food in the area at a much more reasonable price."

  • "To make a long story short, we made a reservation for 4 late on a Sunday. At the last minute two additional people decided to join us. I didn't think it would be an issue at 7:30pm on a Sunday. When we arrived The restaurant was 60% capacity with both round tables for 6 open. The hostess told me we would be waiting because we were waiting for the two tables of 4(which still had diners who she claimed had been there for 2+ hours each). We went the the bar and 20 minutes later she came and told us we were now waiting for 2 different parties to leave. The whole time the 2 6 person tables were available. A total of 50 minutes passed and we were finally seated AT THE TABLE FOR 6 THAT WAS OPEN THE ENTIRE TIME. Thanks Mago!"
