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.

Fun dinner at Hussong's prior to attending Cirque de Soliel show. Great food - amazing service! Our waitress really made our evening. There was even a live roving mariachi band that made the evening more festive.

I ordered a steak fajita. The portion of the food did not warrant the price I paid. There were 4 small strips of steak on the plate. Also, fajitas anywhere else would include guacamole. I had to pay $2.00 extra for a small portion of the guacamole. Being a resident of Las Vegas, I have had numerous fajitas at many restaurants, and got a lot more for the same price or less.

We ate dinner at Hussong while visiting Vegas since it was walking distance from our hotel and our son wanted Mexican food. The reservation process was simple and as a result, we were seated immediately. Once seated, they brought us complementary chips and salsa. My wife spilled most of the chips attempting while attempting to move the tray to the center of the table. We asked the server for more chips (we were a party of 4) , and never received them. It may seem like a small thing but when you are spending almost $20 per person for tacos and enchiladas, those things matter.

The food was good, not delicious, but not the worst Mexican food either. The server left us for over 15 minutes and we just vacillated at the table waiting on the check.

I would not visit again.

Food was mediocre at best, and service was close to non existent. So many great dining options on the strip - skip this one!

Best Margaritas on the Strip, hands down!! Happy hour drinks are only $6. If game is on, happy hour goes until game clock expires. All servers are great and care about their customers. Very quick service. Great for birthday celebrations!! EVERYONE should try this place. Hidden gem in Vegas!! In the Mandalay Bay Shops.

Didn't know what to expect from a cantina(bar) restaurant. Surprisingly, great food. I had the shrimp taco plate and my husband had the fish taco plate. Loved their smoke chipotle salsa and chips. Best tasting margaritas on the rocks!

Steak tacos were amazing! The atmosphere was small and eclectic and even though the mariachi band is loud it’s a fun spot to eat.

There are far too many good places to eat in Vegas to waste your time & money on this place. Music was deafening, food was average & service was sub-par. Very disappointing.

The food was amazing! It was so delicious! We went during happy hour, so the original margarita was only $6 and it was super tasty. I ordered 2 chicken tacos ($3 each!) and an order of Tatchos ($5), and was so full off the tacos that I couldn't finish my Tatchos. We had a party of 7 and they were super accommodating. We went to Vegas for a JoJo Siwa concert and the manager even changed the music to get out girls excited for the show. It was such a sweet gesture. We will definitely go back next time we are at the Mandalay Bay.
