Mago Grill & Cantina - Arlington Heights
Great service and food. Really enjoyed lunch there as they observed all the “rules.” Appetizers and salad were wonderful. Hope they survive in order to thrive later.
I adore the decor and the theme! It's an immersive experience, all around!

The Homemade Quacamole was very Tasty, Definitely Try The Ceviche & The Mago Salad , So Yummy!
Great food and atmosphere
Great service, very patient, and the moles were delicious!
As always, the food was delicious and service top-notch.
Had not been to Mago in a few years. So glad we decided to go back. The food was wonderful and the services was top rate.
Our table had the guacamole appetizer - which was perfect. All of our entrees were delicious - shrimp tacos, Chili Relleno and Carne Chihuahua. We will be certain to go back to Mago again soon.
Celebrated a friend’s birthday. Outdoor seating was comfortable. Heaters kept us warm despite the winds. I truly appreciated immediate clean-up of utensils and dirty dishes transitioning from appetizers to entrees. Highly recommend and have returned to restaurant within 48 hours. Absolutely love the cochinita pibil tacos. Service that evening was the best I’ve experienced compared to my previous experiences. I believe our server’s name was Joan.
Love the service. Definitely will go back food was excellent drinks the waitress everything
Loved this place -and our waiter was superb. Only gave a 3 star for ambience because we had to sit outside on a less-than-perfect weather day because of the pandemic. Food was great - will return - and look forward to going post-pandemic!!
The food is an authentic experience. The mole choices are amazing! We had a lovely time and will be returning soon!
Food and service was fantastic. What Mago has done to accommodate outdoor dining into the fall season is commendable.
great service, good drink options
There isn't much to NOT like here. Margaritas were delicious. Nice variety to choose from on the menu. Food was fabulous as was the service. I would recommend giving this restaurant a try.
Disappointed that they didn’t make our gauomole table side. They us too.
I went here with a friend to catch up after a long time. The server was good and we got all suggestions to help with our choices.
All in all a good experience
I've eaten here a few times and the food is always good. The service was very good. Our only complaint (and this was obviously through no fault of the restaurant) was that there was some construction work going on across the street - and we had chosen to sit outside, which made it extremely noisy at times. If it weren't for that factor, I would have no complaints whatsoever and would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Delicious food, great service! A really nice outdoor setting!
Great food, Great Service. The outdoor seating is great. Seating outside is very cool and they bring out heaters as the sun sets. Great ambience. The streets are lighted up and there was a DJ. Really love the food and come here quite often.
Food very good. Service good. Ate outside but table didnt sit evenly on brick street. Tilted enough that dishes would slide. Why would they even sit someone at a slanted table?
The tiny plastic cups for margaritas ....cold tacos...and poor service made for and average experience at Mago. With so many Mexican restaurants competing for diners in town, Margo unfortunately misses the target. We dined inside and knew it would be loud because it’s always very loud at Mago, but this night was exceptionally loud. The other part that seemed to make no sense with our margaritas served in small thin disposable plastic cups. This is the only restaurant in town serving diners INSIDE with plastic cups. Their margarita prices are on the high end and to serve them this way was disappointing. With many restaurants looking for customers these days it seems that Margo can do better. We ate the week before at salsa 17 and had a much different experience. Delicious margaritas served in a traditional margarita glass ...warm food and the service was top-notch.
Was disappointed that tortillas were not severed with my meal at a Mexican restaurant!
I find this very strange, I needed to pay extra....
Mago is always the same, which is great! We always know what we’ll get when we order and are confident in our selections. I recommend Mago for good food in a relaxed atmosphere.
Nice outside dinning with great food and service.
Pleasant evening at an outdoor table on the street enjoying authentic Margerittas and excellent Mexican fish dishes. One of our favorite local places
Everything was great, from the service, to the food, to the margaritas. The tamale appetizer is a must try. Very enjoyable all around, make your reservations early!
We enjoyed a quick taco lunch at Mago. They offer a nice variety of tacos. And the esquites was delicious.
Love the outdoor seating !! Met up with a friend for lunch who I hadn't seen since all this craziness started. Miquel was our server and he was absolutely fantastic. We told him we may be awhile and he was attentive but not overly and did not rush us at all. We enjoyed a long lunch catch up. Tables are spaced nicely and it wasn't crowded (otherwise we wouldn't have lingered so long). Food was fabulous. Service was Fantastic. Before we left we talked about meeting here again next week. Thanks for the great service Miquel. See you next time !!! (ps Shrimp Tacos are AMAZING).
Outdoor seating was good, draft beer and mohito and volcano fajitas worked well. Poblano n cheese taco, shrimp taco , veg tamales, guac ok.. Server rushed a lil bit...1 1/2 hr time limit , half hr more would be good.. we had plenty of drinks too.
Amazing service, friendly waitstaff, great food. Highly recommend.
The food is absolutely delicious!
Food was delicious but the service was the most rememberable. Every one was in such a good mood and so down to earth and friendly. Great job with the patio ambiance as well!
Need happy hour values or something to entices customers
Great food, drinks, and amazing service!!
Lovely outdoor patio. Good spacing between tables. I am a big fan of their food and have always had good service.
food, service, and drinks were great. Outside dining available during this covid phase

Excellent food and great service. We enjoyed our dinner very much and will be back soon!
Mago has never let me down. Excellent food and great service. The outside seating was well spaced and comfortable.
