Great food and love the Mexican
Great food and love the Mexican decor. Prices seemed really reasonable - really good steak, veggie and mashed potatoes - would have expected to pay more. Although we did go for lunch - don't know if that was a lunch price or not?
Loved the complimentary three salsas and chips they bring. Will definitely go back.

The peanut mole talapia and
The peanut mole talapia and flan were out of this world fantastic! The margaritas were perfect, I like mine on the rocks and not sweet tasting. Mago is not your typical Mexican restaurant, the interior is superbly decorated, the presentation of the food was that of a 5 star restaurant. I can't wait to go back!

Have been here several times - great food and great service! This last time I had a daily special - it was Walleye w/ a Chorizo type of pate on top with a red mole sauce - out of this world! My bf had the Carne Asada and it was great as always! We always make reservations - some nights the line is out of the door - hard to get a drink and wait because the bar area is very crowded w/ the waiters getting drinks so there is not really a good place to stand wait if you don't have ressies...but LOVE this place!

Spicy and Great Mexican Food
I have been to Mago's a few times and the service and food have never disappoint me. On this last visit, my only complaint would be that the restaurant was really warm because they had a huge party in one of the rooms. They did try to regulate the temperature but until that group left, it was really warm.
If you go, you must get the guacamole. It is the best guac I've had in the area especially since they can make it with habenaros (it is spicy!). They also specially made a chorizo burrito for two of us, which was amazing!
The staff was very pleasant and very accomodating! If you can make a reservation prior to going do, as there was a line out the door but since we had a reservation we were seated promptly.

Our first time here and we
Our first time here and we were impressed. Great menu, lots of choices- and our food was incredible! Huge margarita menu (always a plus), and the margaritas were delicious! Next time we'll have to try the table side guacamole (other reviewers love it). The flan was top notch. Service was wonderful! Can't wait to get back there soon!!!

Guac made at your table? I'm in.
I have been to Mago Grill a few times and I always enjoy my dinner. The food is amazing. I usually get the three taco dinner. You can mix and match which tacos you want. I recommend the Chorizo and the Chicken Tinga tacos, both melt in your mouth. You absolutely have to try the guacamole, which they make fresh right next to your table!
The atmosphere is usually very lively and can sometimes be a bit loud. This visit they had a mariachi band playing, which to be honest, was just a bit too loud and made it difficult to hear my friends at the table.
Overall, the service and the food make it a place that I just keep coming back to.

OMG!-- Oh Mago Grill!
What a treat! The ideal Mexican restaurant, which is so hard to come by, now at our Bolingbrook mall! The food is delicious! It is a step above your ordinary tacos, enchiladas, beans and rice. I would say not only a step above, but an entire staircase above.
The service: attentive, friendly, knowledgeable, helpful.
The price: Moderate, affordable, come-backish prices.
I was amazed when I stopped here one day for a quick lunch while shopping. Later in the week I made a date with my husband for dinner and it was fabulous! Modern twist on heavenly Mexican food.

One of their ads I saw said never trust a skinny chef. Even though I know skinny chefs that are incredibly good I tend to agree with this. Mago has absolutely wonderful food. It is all VERY authentic and I can safely recommend anything on the menu without hesitation. My wife is vegetarian and I am the consummate canivore. We both love this restaurant and eat here frequently. The bar is incredibly skilled as well. I cannot say enough good about this place and I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Best Mexican Dining Bolingbrook
Excellent, excellent food, variety of menu is amazing--trendy, upscale, yet affordable. Our server was also very culinary-wise and knew specific ingredients of the salsa selections. Kudos to Mago all around.

Excellent Mexican food
This restaurant is the best Mexican food I have ever had, and I have lived in California and Arizona in places that had good Mexican food. It carries the entire sense of an upper-crust Mexican place, with everything one could want. It will become a frequent stop for us.

Food is excellent

Not your typical Mexican restaurant
Mago's is what I would call an upscale Mexican restaurant with a flair. Sure you can order a burrito or taco but there is so much more variety on their menu. Food is very good and the guacamole made at your table is delicious . Service was great. My only comment is the place has high ceilings and it gets rather noisy. I had requested a quieter spot inside since we had an out of country visitor and wanted to be able to talk. We were hoping for table in a corner. But when we got there they told us the quiet spot would be outside. They have a small patio on the sidewalk but hot night so not what we wanted. They set up a table inside for the 6 of us but on path to kitchen. Cannot accommodate several groups at same time. Otherwise great place.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was mine and my fiancée first time to try this place! I had always wanted to try it since I passed by it every time I was at the Bolingbrook promenade! Mago definitely did not disappoint! I had special food restrictions and they had no problem with making the carne chihuahua dish to my specifications! My fiancée as well enjoyed the tacos! The complimentary chips and salsas they serve you at the beginning were delicious, refreshing and light! The waitress was very polite and always made sure that everything was up to our satisfaction! I suggest making a reservation especially during typical dinner times because it really gets hectic and busy! The outside ambience was great! We will definitely return very soon!

Nice Place for Mexican Food
We had a reservation and were seated immediately, that was nice.
We waited more than 10 minutes before anyone spoke to us, not a great first impression but I've had worse.
The rest of the meal was faster than some drive thrus. We ordered drinks, they did a lap and came back in less than 2 minutes, wonderful. We ordered our food and at most restaurants a 10-20 minute window between ordering and eating is normal. It was maybe 5 minutes. Enough time to put it on a plate and bring it out. Not exactly made to order.
Prices are a bit high for what you get but everything tasted fine.

Liked the food, the atmosphere and staff. As other writers have written this is not your typical Mexican restaurant and that is what appealled to me. You have to try it.

Staff and food spot on!
We love coming to Mago Bolingbrook. It consistently has great fresh food and the mole sauces are amazing! I lean toward their shrimp dishes and my husband either goes for the pork or carne asada entrees - it is all well prepared and sooo flavorful. The wait staff is always very polite and helpful, you never see any of the staff being anything but friendly and professional. Keep it up Mago!
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is good with a varied menu. The restaurant is very noisy and there was a mariachi band playing which made it very difficult to even have a conversation.

great food once again
Chicken tortilla soup is my favorite soup hands down. Sandra knows exactly what we eat and drink and she always provides great service!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We always enjoy our experience at MAGO. Nothing changed Sunday. All was delicious, we left stuffed and super happy. Our picky kiddo ate tableside guac to his heart's content and we vowed it's our favorite restaurant in the 'burbs once again.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Mago Grill never ceases to fail me whenever I go there with my fiancée. We go there at least once a month and try a different dish every time and each time we are just blown away with how flavorful and delicious the food is! Not only is the food extremely satisfying but it is delivered within minutes of you ordering it. Such polite and caring staff made the experience even better! Mago grill will forever be one of my favorite restaurants!

Best Mexican Food
The food is fresh, served hot and really tasty! I've been to Rick Bayless' Frontera Grill in the city and this food is just as good. There are many options to choose from (they even have a dish with Amish chicken) and the portion sizes are generous. Table-side guacamole has the most simple, fresh ingredients and the flavor is amazing. All tables get complimentary salsa (3 types...all very good though the smoky chipotle and tomatillo are my favorites) and chips.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is traditional Mexican dining which offers a wide variety of selections. They provide three different types of salsa which is good for everyone. The tableside preparaition of guacamole is very good as it is made to order.
