Great food and margheritas. I had the queso and avocado enchiladas and the freshly made guacamole and salsa to start were also excellent.

Excellent Mexican food. A much different approach than Red Iguana.

Alemexo has the best sauces and mole and we love everything about it, especially the fresh, made at your table, Guacamole.

Haute Mexican cuisine. Not your average burrito place. Quality and presentation are on point here! Loved the food and service!

Great place to dine with friends and family. However they really need to consider marking menu options with dietary flags...Our server was confused on what ingredients were in the dishes which made it frustrating to try to find something to order (since I have celiac disease). It all worked out, however they should really consider this or have frustrated customers.

Service wAs good but this place was the least authentic place we have ever Been to, not to mention the dishes were severely overpriced for the size with little flavor. The "tableside guacamole" was NOT made tableside and unfortunately the flavor fell flat for that too. So disspapointing since we had been wanting to try this restaurant for quite some time. We've spread the word, and apparently we aren't the only ones that felt this place was no where near the 4 stars it weirdly has on yelp. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY and if you are looking for "authentic" Mexican food, go elsewhere!

Our chicken tacos were delicious! I do think this place is a bit overpriced, but we did enjoy the food. :)

We were super excited to try alamexo. But unfortunately we left very unsatisfied. Our appetizer was extremely expensive for a very small portion of guacamole. The menu has very limited amount of options(tacos, enchiladas). The food did not live up to the price we paid. It's a cute restaurant with a good idea. But they need to lower their prices or really raise up there food quality. Don't plan on returning anytime soon.

We have traveled often to Colonial Cities in Mexico and love the food. This is the best Utah restaurant for the flavors of Guanajuato and Oaxaca!

Guacamole was good but food wasn't that great. Did like the free chirps at the end. Over priced for overall taste of food. Would rather eat at a cheaper more traditional Mexican restaurant.

Nice place, food was good. Our server wasn't great. She seemed disinterested in being there, and even when we explained that we were excited to try it for the first time, and asked some questions about the place (how long it had been there, favorite dishes, etc.)....she seemed really annoyed.
