  • "Mex has been a hot spot for some time, so we were excited to see an available reservation on Open Table. The food was delicious and the portions were just right. My only disappointment was in the Margarita which had orange juice instead of lime. Isn't a classic Margarita supposed to be lime juice? I know it's thier twist on a classic, but it didn't work for me. We will definitely be back!"

  • "The service and atmosphere very nice! Menu extensive and drink selection nice. Unfortunately all 4 selections for 4 different people were very salty even the vegetarian dish."

  • "I treated my wife and a friend on Sunday for brunch. Everyone was pleased with the experience. Food was fresh and prepared very creatively. Interesting presentation. Very competent, friendly service, The decor is outstanding. Well done all the way around! We will definitely make this a regular occasion."

  • "Recently went there for the first time with family. We enjoyed the food and service. However, not so sure that the tequila was as top shelf as the waitress claimed for the skinny margaritas. Nevertheless, we will be back…..next time, however, we will request Patron or some other notable tequila for our drinks."

  • "I went with a group of 5 for early dinner on a Saturday night. The decoration is a bit strange, but acceptable. The noise level was terrible. With generic dance music blaring in the background we had to shout at each other while leaning in to the center of the table to hear each other. My Carne Asada was beyond well-done with charring in some places. The service was quite good and the staff helpful and attentive. I guess I would classify this as a "hot spot'" but only for people unable to generate their own interesting conversation. We asked the restaurant to turn down the music, but they explained it was deliberately turned up for the weekend!"

  • "The price of the food was to high for the amount of food you received. The ginger ale was way to strong ( made your tongue tingle). The chips and salsa should be complimentary ( smaller version). Would not go back unless I was with a group that already was there or wanted to go. Rethink the price to the food amount."

  • "Came here a few weeks ago for a business dinner and restaurant was lively. However the food wasn't so great-had the tamales which were dry, but the chips & salsa were notably good. I decided to give this restaurant a 2nd try with a friend. My friend had the beef tacos and said they tasted fishy. The waitress kindly replaced it with a simple cheese quesadilla. I ordered the carne asada,which tasted more of lime; rice was flavorful, but mushy. The portions were small and prices are high for the quality and portion received. The manager was nice enough to apologize for the tacos and took my friend's dish off the bill. Sorry to say that while the environment seems lively, I would not come here for the food."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "We'd been told by a number of folks to give this place a try. Food was OK. Service was OK. I think what irritated us the most was we were going there for two milestone birthdays. We mentioned this on reservation. Mentioned this when they called to confirm. Mentioned this when we arrived. Mentioned this to server. And yet - through all that - no attempt was made to make it special. And to top it all off... our table (again, WITH reservations) was horribly placed. Being told it was only one left - even though you walked thru restaurant to see other open tables. Just sad - to have a special evening - with crap seating placement WITH a reservation. Probably won't be back."

  • "Mex has great corn chips, guac and salsa, For lunch, there is a make your own salad sheet of paper with great choices, all pretty healthy. For dinner, you can "pig out" or eat healthy, there are selections for everyone."

  • "I really want to like it here.. Its right in the neighborhood and its really a beautiful place. On my most recent visit I had brunch. Make your own skillet sounds great, right? I wanted all the veggies well done with hashbrowns and poached eggs. The eggs were cooked perfectly, they forgot the hash browns and the veggies were soggy, greasy and watery.. What a shame. It was seriously inedible. The manager was completely on board with me. He felt terrible and had a talk with the chef about it. The only thing that I like here are the make your own salads that they have during lunch. Although, they make a mistake every time I am there on what to put in it!! The mexican entrees are all very over spiced. Best thing is the guacomole."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "We've never been disappointed with dinner at Mex. Everything is tasty and nicely prepared. We generally order the guac (chunky), house Margarita, and tacos--all good. It's popular, though, so times fill up fast on Open Table. Or do what we do: reserve for 5:30, eat dinner, then see a 7:00 or 7:30 movie at the Maple."

  • "Definitely a new take on your usual Mexican restaurant! The deco is really fun, and the atmosphere is young and energetic. Food was great. and the service was really nice. (small remark about the noise level: depending on where you are the music can get a little loud). We will definitely come back with friends for a fun night out."

  • "My wife and I have been to most area Mexican restaurants and though some are very good, Mex blows them away. We went on a Saturday night at 9:00 and the place was still full of people, music, and a vibrant decor. Although they were disappointingly out of shrimp ceviche, every other dish including the black bean soup, grilled corn, chicken and steak tacos had incredible flavor. Even the homemade chips and salsa were outstanding. After several signature cocktails we left around 11:00 and the music was still playing. Great date night stop."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The food was good, there are a lot of options for different diet restrictions. The place is really hip and clean. My only comment would be about the wait staff. They are pretty cold and seemed to care less if we were enjoying our meal or needed anything after the food arrived. Our waiter seemed to want us out of the way before the big rush came. Granted, it was a Friday night but for the amount of money i spent on two tacos and chicken fajitas, I would have appreciated to be treated like a customer instead of a check. The manager stopped by and asked how we enjoyed our meal, but she backed away before we could respond."

  • "Great place to celebrate a birthday over lunch. "Select your salad ingredients option" is amazing and delicious!"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Definitely more gourmet than your average Mexican reastaurant, this place has unique combinations of ingredients to tempt even the most discerning of palates. The hand crafted margaritas also add to the experience. I recommend the cinn-gin margarita."

  • "The service at This beautiful new restaurant was wonderful. Our server was vibrant, checked on us and served our table with our requests accordingly. The food is okay. My fajita bowl had very little chicken in it, the sauce on enchiladas was strange tasting, more like a tomato sauce. I like Mexican food but this was not exactly what I was looking for"

  • "Food was so late to arrive that the manager stopped by to let us know he knew they were late, and that dinner would arrive soon. We thanked him - and were left waiting another 10 minutes. At which point dinner arrived - and the server stopped by to ask us "how things were" and was surprised to find that dinner was late. After all of that, the manager never came back. Poor internal communication and a poor experience overall. Dinner was better that average Mexican fare, but was not stellar vs the price, and combined with service issues - was a bad value"

  • "Met my friend for lunch here. My friend recommended we get a reservation and I thought it was not necessary but did anyway. The parking lot was totally full as I pulled in!! Glad I listened to my friend. The menu is "nouveau mex" but I was surprised to see a separate menu with a make your own salad. The wIter said this caters to the lunch crowd from surrounding offices. I ordered this with chicken and it was delicious. However I did order a sangria that I totally hated after 1 sip. I told the waiter but he seemed uninterested in offering me something else. And it was on the bill. Poor customer service. I will be back for the salad but no sangria."

  • "We took my dad to MEX in honor of Father's Day. If you are a fan of interior decorating, you have to visit this place for that reason alone! Part of the restaurant is outdoors, but instead of a regular door (where you have to choose frigid AC temps or roasting in the sun), MEX has large, "garage door" style doors so that you are dining inside, but in fresh air with some filtered sunlight coming through. The service was excellent. The food is Tex-Mex style rather than true Mexican, but they do Tex-Mex very well. The menu is on the smaller side, but everyone in our party of 5 found something they wanted and everyone said their dish was excellent. Definitely get reservations! We went at 5:30 (with a reservation) and it was packed."

  • "Quite decent food. Fair sized portions. Unlike most mexican restaurants, you must purchase chips and salsa. Great decor, both in and outside. Overpriced margaritas.one split dinner , with chips and salsa ,plus two drinks and tip bill came to $56. A little pricey in my book."

  • "Having enjoyed Social restaurant we were looking forward to try Mex. Dinning area very loud and with garage doors open that day it was quite muggy inside. The steak tacos were under cooked & the shrimp (fried) taco was cold. The guacamole was great but it would be nice to have it prepared table side. Bean appetitizer was okay. No hot sauce at our table. We felt a little rushed by our waitstaff."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "The servers here were not well informed of the menu. (food or drinks) Service was slow and very spotty. Food was average at best. When we sent one item back because it was overcooked, they seemed insulted. It took over thirty minutes for the replacement dish to arrive. It still was not very good. No apologies, no suggestions for any resolution, no concern whatsoever. This is a beautiful looking restaurant that someone clearly invested a lot of money in. Very pleasant to walk in to. It is too bad they have not invested in the kitchen or wait staff to match the ambiance."

  • "First timer here. Had a very nice dinner here on a beautiful Friday night in B. Hills. The place was upscale and upbeat. This is not your "typical" Mexican restaurant that serves soggy tortillas smothered in sauce with sides of tasteless refried beans and overcooked rice. The menu items were plentiful and it seemed they tried to stay away from traditional dishes which is a nice change. I had the fish tacos which were very tasty. My wife had the shrimp tacos which must have been great because she didn't let me taste them! We shared a bowl of black beans that were quite good. Only regret was the Classico Margaritas were watered down as I usually get plastered with one at most restaurants and 2 of these barely produced a buzz."

  • "MEX has a great staff of energetic workers who provide friendly and efficient service. The food is good and the presentation is well done. The open air environment is nice, but watching the traffic on Telegraph is not relaxing. I found it to be more of an adult restaurant, but would not hesitate to bring older children. Our Margaritas were Top Notch!"
