Diner Reviews
  • "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"

  • "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"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "I love the eclecticism shown in the decor of the restaurant from the floor to the clear windows and beyond. My friends joined me for my birthday dinner there and we were pleased with the service and food. The fish tacos and fried ice cream are amazing!"

  • "Made a reservation through open table. Received two email conformations and a phone call from Mex to confirm my reservation two hours before arrival. When I got there they had no reservation. I should them me email conformation and incoming phone number from when they called me. So I started my first experience through open table and Mex not on a good note. "

  • "My husband and family went here on a Saturday early and it was packed. The food was delicious and our server was really good. For an appetizer we ordered the chips and guacamole. Delish! Then for dinner I ordered the corn tamales and they were fantastic. My husband ordered the tacos and he loved them also. We can't wait to go back. Thanks!"

  • "We had chips and salsa to start with. It comes with 2 kinds of salsa. We had salsa verde and the house salsa. Both were awesome!! I ordered steak tacos and my mom had the puffy beef tacos. They were both exceptional! Also, my margarita was very good! It had a splash of oj in it I think. Highly recommend this place!"

  • "Great fancy brunch menu. They were very accommodating and made me a great breakfast taco (bacon, egg, and potato). I am secretly hoping that they will add a "Breakfast Taco Bar" to their menu."

  • "I am really happy to see a restaurant in the suburbs that is funky, whimsical & a great connection to the outside. We felt like we were sitting outside because of all of the "garage doors" that were opened up. The food was awesome. I would describe it as Fresh-Mex, like they have a garden in the back they pull from after you order. This is not your typical Mexican restaurant, so do not expect a traditional experience. It is Mexican with a twist & I loved it!!"

  • "Food tasted good. The burrito was good. The chicken enchilada was good. But the beef tamales...the beef was no where to be seen although they tasted good. We thought they'd made a mistake and given us just corn tamales but they confirmed it was beef. The fried ice cream was good. "

  • "We have eaten here many times. (Brunch, Lunch, Dinner, After hours) Never been disappointed. They have a create your own skillet brunch item. You can pick as many or as little as you want in the breakfast skillet...Never the same twice, lots of options. Guacamole is great along with the sauces. If you are into Margaritas, you will have to try the Ghostbuster. It is Phenomenal. I could go on, yet go and experience it yourself and you will see what I mean. Enjoy!!!"

  • "MEX is not your average combo platter mexican restaurant, and that is refreshing. The decor tells you that as soon as you walk in. Service was a little slow, getting chips and salsa could have been faster, but other than that, this place should be on your list. Guacamole was very good - chips are homeade. I had carne asada - skirt steak was cooked perfect and had great flavor. Hubby had pork tacos which he describes as "craveable". The rice and bean sides are a little different too, in a very good way. And the margaritas were fantastic. Overall, really enjoyed our meal and would go back again!"

  • "Although the service & ambience was great, the food lacked seasonings that reflected Mexican cuisine. It wasn't even Tex-Mex... The overall taste was a bit bland & not at all south of the border in taste. My dining partner agreed. However, if you want a cool place to have cocktails & appetizers it's a very appropriate place to meet."

  • "Service was prompt, friendly and knowledgable. Food was extremely good. Creative takes on Mexican classics. The loaded guac. To die for. And we tried 2 types if taco- all outstanding and different. So incredibly loud though. My only beef. Not the place for an intimate dinner or those with hearing aids."
