Diner Reviews
  • "Our waitress (Amy) was beyond exceptional. So very knowledgeable about the menu items and offered great suggestions for our dinner choices. The food was delicious - everything from a burger to crab enchiladas. I eat healthful and was impressed that my custom order (grilled shrimp, rice and black beans) was prepared with little or no fat and was still tasty and delicious. Would definitely recommend this place to friends. The frozen margarita was also very good!"

  • "The food is excellent. Always prepared with fresh tasting ingredients. Caters to Gluten free allergy, which is a plus for our family. The only complaint is the noise level is extremely high, which makes having a conversation extremely difficult. Based on that, I recommend the patio."

  • "Mexican Sugar is a wonderful blend of different Hispanic cuisines served up in a unique, cozy environment. The hamburguesa was one of the best burgers I've ever had and the arepas (brisket appetizer) were talked about for he rest of the night. Do yourself a favor and try this place."

  • "I took a client to Mexican Sugar for lunch and sat on the patio. It was a beautiful day and the patio was really enjoyable. We had a waiter that was able to recommend a great appetizer (corn cakes with ropa vieja) and managed to keep our tea glasses full without being obtrusive. Great presentation of Tortilla soup. I'll definitely take other clients there for lunch."

  • "I went to Mexican Sugar for my birthday dinner- and let me preface that i do not like Tex Mex food whatsoever! i live nearby and wanted to try, because it is owned by Whiskey Cake owners nd am a huge fan. Let me say...it exceeded expectations. Ambience was amazing, margaritas were top notch as was the service (very knowlegeable & attentive) and the food...the food was clever, inventive and bursting with unusual flavirs from not only Mexico but also South america all the way to Spain. Every one in our party of 8 raved about their food choice and drinks. Bravo! "

  • "Great atmosphere/food. Big enough menu for medium/high spenders. Service stunk. Waiter was very nice, but multiple issues. 1) Took forever to bring my beer. 2) When runner did, it was wrong. 3) Took long time for waiter to tell me they didn't have my beer. 4) Took forever to bring me different beer. 5) One diner asked for dressing on side and wasn't. 6) Same diner asked for white sangria, got red. 7) Pregnant wife asked for virgin mojito, was awful. 8) My meal should've come with tortillas but was half finished by time they arrived. 9) Ditto for another diner. 10) After we paid, waiter disappeared while we all wanted a water refill. My wife told a friend all was great but service stunk and she said she was the 5th person to tell her that."

  • "Enjoyed our 1st time experience for 6 at Mexican Sugar. It is hard to get a reservation here for a Friday or Sat. Night, so went on a Sunday night. There is great outside dining, overlooking the fountain. We ate inside and the the noise level was high. The great waitress was helpful and we were allowed to rearrange a table and chairs to suit us. Originally they tried to seat us in a booth that would have been way too tight. Everyone had tacos and seemed pleased. My cabrito tacos were good but sloppy (spills & stains). I would ask for a substitute for the shredded Brussel spouts slaw (not much taste). This is a place to see and be seen with heavy emphasis on drinks. The food is the weak link here. Atmosphere is great."

  • "This place is beautiful..and big! Go when you can make a reservation though - which is just through thur. The food is really good and priced fairly! The drinks are imaginative and fun offers like a Sangria kit for 4 people! The service was great - well informed yet not pressured. We went with a large group of girls and they were great. However, it is loud in there! So while they smartly have tables for large parties (ours could have seated 12-14, it was not easy to carry on a lot of conversation outside of the person next to you! But you won't mind too much because the place sort of transforms the evening and the food is creative and with something for all!"

  • "Our first visit we got there early and luckily got a table on the patio on a Saturday night, otherwise it would have been a 2 hour wait. We had an excellent waiter who was very well-versed on the menu and was very knowledgeable about the tequila menu. Our second visit was on a Sunday night with a party of 8 so we were able to make a reservation. The weather was bad so it ended up not being very crowded. Our server wasn't nearly as good as the first one. It seemed to take forever to get our drinks and he just wasn't super-attentive considering the place wasn't packed. The food was just as great as the first time though! We will definitely go back any chance we get."

  • "The interior of Mexican Sugar is beautiful. It was warm, inviting and energetic. I love the ecletic feel of the furniture and decor. The food was very good. All fresh ingredients with wonderful flavors. The queso was rich and creamy. I could have made a meal of it. The brussel sprout shred is awesome. I had to pick through it since I am alergic to onion but i was well worth it. Our server, Alexa, was very knowledgeable on the menu and all of the components. She was extremely helpful in our decision making. I will definitely be back to try more of the tacos."

  • "Was really looking forward to trying out the newest restaurant at the Shops at Legacy and decided to invite a few friends for an after church lunch. I will start with the pros..the decor and layout of the place is great. The restaurant doesn't feel crowded at all and the white queso is probably the best in town. The bad...the menu is very limited to tacos, sandwiches and a handful of main courses, none of which are truly a "must have". It is also lacking items for the "picky" kids (fajitas, enchiladas, burritos). We were a table of 8 and they seated us near a table of 20, another table of 8 plus a table of 4. Not a problem except for the 2 servers that had to take care of 40 people. We may be back for queso and drinks...at the bar."
