Our Server was Awesome and Exceptional and enjoyed being of service to us. As you go to a restaurant for service! If the Food and or atmosphere is bad. Service will not make up for bad food. The food was great and actually seemed to be flavorful. The Server brought out the Flavors and Atmosphere.

Recent menu changes and food quality seemed down from our previous visits. Margaritas were still good, but we liked the old menu options better. Not so impressed anymore.

Ceviche had too much black pepper.
Quesadilla was good.
Michelada had ice in it instead of a frosty mug. Which isn't common. Maybe it is in vegas.
There was a little Mexican band that got the crowd going . Probably the best part.
Waitress never told us her name.
, but we received everything we asked for so it wasn't a horrible experience. Still tipped 20%.

Three of us went there for a small birthday celebration. I quietly informed the waiter and thought all was good. End up finding out they do nothing for birthday's! No small dessert or anything. So, if you meal includes a birthday celebration. I recommend an alternate location. Food was decent though.

We didn’t really have any expectations going into this restaurant since it’s your basic Mexican cantina, but we were shocked to discover the food was far beyond what we expected!! Great food, great service and fun atmosphere!!

This place is just that- a cantina. I ordered the pozole which was sweet, that was awkward because in no part of Mexico is it sweet. Their salsa is also sweet. Had the fish tacos which were very good. Their beans tasted like they were canned and the salad I ordered was just lettuce chopped up which they must use in other dishes. The waitress didn't tend to us til we were about done with our meal, there was plenty of help for her. The manager Art runs that place! From wiping down tables to helping the hostess, he is a hard worker but needs to work on his staff being as strong in customer service as he is. The bill was $96 plus I left her 18% tip: one drink, a salad (chopped lettuce) , 2 pozoles , fish tacos and a chicken tostada. We didn't finish our food and took none home thats how meeehhhhh that place is. If you're looking to get drunk and over pay for basic generic tasting out of can food.... this is the place for you. I would not recommend this place.

I’ve had better experiences here. Something was just off. Having said that, nothing was particularly bad. I was just not blown away like other times I have dined here. My fiancé did love her Barbacoa burrito! Heading to give it another try.

We’ve been here a few times before and usually love the experience. We were seated timely about two thirds down inside the restaurant. Within minutes of being seated, the mariachi band started playing and the volume was so loud that it was giving us headaches. we couldn’t hear each other talk not order with the waitress because of the noise level. fortunately, we were able to move to a table closer to the entrance - away from the band where we could still hear the music and singing without hurting our ears. the wAitress agreed the music and singing was too cloud and that she doesn’t like it either but she has no say in the matter. other than the noise level, the food was awesome and so was the service!

If you are looking for a nice casual sports bar vibe, Hussong's is the spot. Good ceviche, and awesome margaritas with reasonable prices for being in Las Vegas.

We love visiting the Mandalay bay location and often bring friends with us. The food, the service, and the atmosphere is always consistently wonderful! The top shelf margaritas are the best! We do miss the mariachi band, and hope they’ll be able to return soon. Thank you for always treating us like family!! ❤️

Good moderate priced Mexican restaurant. Service was very friendly and food arrived quickly. Kids menu was a bit too authentic and are kids tried the shredded beef tacos but didn't truly enjoy them, and they also came with fries which I thought was odd, some fruit or vegetables certainly would be a welcome addition to this. A fun mariachi band was playing in the restaurant and came by the table to sing to the kids, much appreciated.

This was a very convenient place to eat while I was at the Mandalay Bay events center. I eat a whole food plant based diet and Hussong's had an entire page vegan menu. My colleagues also could find a large number of choices with various meats and fish options. The food was very good, portions quite large and good service. The restaurant is fairly noisy so not the best place for a work related conversation.

Food was extremely salty. Soup was not hot. Service - my husband had his quesadilla in his hand and the waitress wanted to take dish.. He was still eating! Drinks arrived after the food. Overall this restaurant was just “ok”. Too much competition in Las Vegas to return here.
