Food is always good here.
Food is always good here. I have tried almost everything on the menu and have my favorites, but all of the dishes are are always consistent, so if you liked it once you'll be sure that if you reorder it will be the same. Service is almost always very attentive and the staff is helpful with recommendations.

When we arrived for brunch,
When we arrived for brunch, it was very slow, hardly any people in the restaurant. Although the restaurant says it is open for brunch, it is not what I would consider a TRUE brunch. I wanted more breakfast food options and a drink special. The food was delicious though so I really cannot complain too much. The service was great. Very attentive staff.

I was pleasantly surprised
I was pleasantly surprised by Meso Maya. It was recommended by my brother to celebrate our mother's birthday, and it was great. I had the puerco chuleta & I was surprised at the size of the chop. The chayote was great, and the corn. My mother loved her carne asada, and really enjoyed the black beans, & tamale served with it. My dad had some seafood enchiladas that he enjoyed, too. My brother's girlfriend (vegetarian) also had no problem finding a meal she enjoyed. My only regret is that I didn't have any room for dessert! And this food is /Mexican/. This ain't your "typical Tex-Mex"! Yum!

Always a winner!!!
Everything we ate was delicious, but the most outstanding item was not listed on the menu. It's a homemade churro, filled with caramel, served with a side of vanilla ice-cream and chocolate sauce. Incredible ending to an outstanding meal!

Was suggested by a Dallas-area
Was suggested by a Dallas-area friend, so we went for dinner. Attentive service, interesting menu, fabulous flavors. Would definitely go back.

Meso Maya serves up authentic Mexican flavors along with great atmosphere. When they have the windows open, it's also a great open air experience. For those that are used to Tex-Mex cuisine, this will be a different experience.

Recovery by the hostess
We booked a table to celebrate Mother's Day. I specifically asked for a quieter table given my 78 year old mother's hearing. We arrived a bit a bit early to discover we were to be seated in the back room of the restaurant which was similar to sitting inside a drum. We couldn't hear ourselves at all! I quickly went back to the hostess and pleaded my case, pointed to my request in the Open Table reservation and asked they sit us up front by the lovely open windows (and much quieter area) or we would need to leave. She took less than 10 mins to sort out the situation and got those of us already there moved and reseated moments before my parents arrived. Perfect recovery! The food and service were as good as always and we had a great meal.

Our favorite lunch spot...
This place never disappoints. I know it's a "Mexican" - albeit upscale - but we go there for the delicious salads. There are 4 different yummy salads to which you can add grilled shrimp, chicken, beef or salmon (if you ask...menu doesn't list salmon as an option - but it is the best salmon ever)..Nice patio - not outside but big open windows. The tacos and enchiladas are wonderful too...not your basic Tex-Mex by any means...So go there immediately!!!

Love this place. I love the look and feel from outside looking in. The strip mall isn't as appealing, but very central and great location.

After reading positive reviews on Meso Maya, we decided to try it ourselves and we are glad we did! Our family ordered four different entrees and every one of them was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was not over the top, but sufficient. We will definitely return!

Unusual food, but delicious
My wife and I were born and raised in Texas and have eaten at many dozens, if not hundreds, of Mexican restaurants. The menu at Meso Maya has items neither of us had seen before, and we had to ask questions about several of the dishes.
But the end result was worth the effort. We ordered dishes we had never heard of, and they were delicious. We also recommend the white queso.
I would definitely return to Meso Maya.

Mexico City Mexican food
Great variety of unique and authentic Mexican dishes. Excellent food. Good service.

Mesa Maya - you get a great experience and variety in the Aztec food. The service and ambiance are incredible.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
If youre tired of Tex Mex and melted cheese, this restaurants
serves outstanding Mexican food. We tried the Ceviche, Molote
and green posole soup all were true gems. The Conchinita pibil
was perfect, not spicy, the salmon special was delicious.
The servers are all Mexicans and are very focused and pleasant.
Great job we will back.

A nice change of pace
It is SO nice to have some mexican food that doesn't all taste the same (I'm looking at you M Crowd). Chips, salsa, queso, guacamole are always excellent. Good house margaritas and swirls. Always have a great meal here with good service to boot.

Great way to start the weekend
Really enjoyed our visit Friday evening. We had reservations and were promptly seated upon arrival. Appeared to have a great bar as well. The waitstaff was great as was the food and drinks. Will definitely go back.

Glad I Finally Tried It
I have seen Meso Maya in the Preston Forest strip for years and never made my way in until meeting a friend for lunch. I was impressed. The dining room is pleasant, the service solid, and the chips and salsa a standout in a town filled with chips and salsa. My entree, Serrano Enchiladas, was very good. Anxious to sample more of the menu.

Our new, favorite Mexican restaurant. Great food, great drinks, great service!

Shared an early dinner last
Shared an early dinner last Saturday at Meso Maya. Service was attentive and the waiter immediately answered a number of detailed questions about the menu items. My wife had the Ensalada de Ceviche as an entree and it was wonderful. I had the cochinita pibil, which was mouth-watering and plentiful. My son had the Enchiladas del mar and raved about them. An exceptional Tres Leches cake and Flan de queso finished our evening nicely. Energetic is a good description of the noise and activity level, especially on a Saturday evening. The unique menu and preparation of each dish will certainly keep us coming back.

Third visit and always exceptional.
Third visit and always exceptional. Good top shelf margaritas as well with fresh lime juice!

We were looking for a really nice place to go for a special birthday dinner for my adult son. We were unaware of Meso Maya even though we live close by and are in the neighborhood very often. Based on the online menu and description and the fact that were we able to make a reservation on short - 2 hour notice we decided to give a try. Everything was top notch. Very interesting and extensive menu that is definitely not the same old predictable Tex-Mex standard in N Texas. Ambiance, service, food and drink selection and the actual meal itself were excellent. We are used to occasionally splurging in one of the very nice upscale restaurants in N. Dallas and Addison and this one will definitely be on our repeat list.

Variety of great Mexican Cuisine
Continue to be on the must go places...Starting to branch out on ordering as everything on the menu is excellent including the blueberry cobbler with Mexican vanilla ice cream... The staff could not be more helpful and fun scene to hang out at.

My only complaint
Pollo Mole had good taste, but it really should be shredded & simmered IN mole sauce. I got two big pieces of chicken topped with mole as if it was gravy. Not my fave. But all else was a nice experience.
8/9/2013 5:00:00 PM
Really great experience!
Food is really well done and unique! Service was excellent!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved the mole
Anytime I can find good mole I'm all in, and the mole here was excellent. The plantains, rice, pretty much everything was very well prepared and plated. Great find.

Good all around!
Good Food with a flare to the typical Tex-Mex. Good service. Reasonable prices. Loved the fact that I could get reservations for a party of 9!

Love the drinks
I was very glad that they have my favorite drink, White Sangria, it was very good. I will definitely go back to have some again. The food was also very good, tasty. The waiter we had was very good answering the questions we had about the different dishes.

Always a great experience that redefines fine Mexican cuisine.

Had family in town for weekend. Wanted to show off new type of Mexican style restaurant. Service is outstanding. Food is always great.
Only drawback (and reason for 4 instead of 5 stars) is they dont make flour tortillas. Its a cute marketing thing, I guess; but I bet if they had flour tortillas, they'd make more customers happy, especially the kids (who do have a say in where we go to dinner).
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
High end, interesting Mexican
Well-designed, comfortable restaurant had a menu full of interesting options . Food and service were very good. I will be back to try other dishes. Kitchen was willing to substitute a sauce that did not have cilantro for the dish I chose.

Food and Margaritas were excellent!
I had the carne asada and it was very well flavored, very tender and was an overall delightful entree.

The entire experience at Meso Maya was wonderful. The atmosphere is very nice and the booths are comfortable. The server was friendly and extremely knowledgeable of the menu. The food was delicious and served in fair amounts. I will be putting this into my regular restaurant rotation list for lunch places.

Great alternative to Tex Mex
Great margarita options smokey-hot salsa and great crispy chips are a fabulous start to the Yutcan menu offering. Try the conchinita pibil, a pork roast that falls apart, or the Aztecian budin. Kudos to Victor L., our fabulous waiter who came with great food and drink recommendations (and his family recipes). Party room in the back and lots of space for large tables.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife and I have been enjoying eating lunch and dinner at both Dallas locations for over a year. The food is always fresh tasting and when something does go wrong with a meal the management is happy to try to make it right quickly

The food is awesome - margharita's are fantastic - wait staff friendly and helpful!

Love the options on the luncheon
Love the options on the luncheon menu. The food is not heavy but light and very flavorful. Nice to have something in the Dallas area other than Tex Mex. I think of the Yucatan when I eat at Meso Maya. Drinks options are also delightful and not terribly expensive.

Great restaurant! Took out of town company who loved it as well!
