Their Mole is delicious!
Excellent food and service. Highly recommend this place.
As always the food was excellent. Just wished they wouldn’t have sat us by the door and the big windows.
1st visit, will go back. Table side guacamole was extraordinary, makes me miss summer. Margaritas were very good, maybe a little pricey. Service was on point Steak fajita was very good. Very good. If 4.75 was an option that is what I would rate.
Excellent food and service! Perfect for a date night.
Food was delicious. Very reasonably priced dinner for a family of 4
Food was really good and they were flexible in preparing it "our way". The server was fantastic and didn't rush us, we felt comfortable sitting and visiting. It made for a great afternoon -
Had a good time, service was amazing and everything came out quickly. Food was very good and tasty. We had a good time
Food was very good. Guacamole was fantastic. Like the option for mole.
Great experience and attention to our table. Food was amazing! Tried different items this time … the Fajita that comes in a bowl (don’t recall the name), it was wonderful!!!! The espresso flan was delicious according to another person at our table. Really enjoyed the pace, ambiance, and food.
Our server was wonderful and gave us amazing drink recommendations! We will definitely be back!
We have eaten at this Mago many times and it is always absolutely delicious. The staff is amazing and the service is top notch!
Always delicious, first time trying desserts.
Wonderful service. Great food.
Perfect place to go with a group. The service was amazing and the gentlemen that made our table side guacamole was very personable. Over great experience.
We regularly dine with Magos, we always have a great time and look forward to our next visit.
Mago has become our favorite Mexican restaurant! The margaritas are amazing and the food is elevated Mexican.
Food was fantastic, especially the home made guac. Drinks were perfect!
We got together for a ladies Christmas party after work. Nothing formal; everyone bought their own meal. We had a gift exchange. The atmosphere was very conducive; there was enough variety on the menu to meet everyone's dietary and price needs, and our server was very friendly and accommodating.
Delicious food, nice atmosphere and good service
We brought our son and grandson for lunch. Mago is our favorite place for Mexican food. If you like mole, it always has many flavorful varieties on hand. I often have Puntas de Cerdo because it comes with your choice of mole, but for a special treat try Fajitas en Molcajeta—mine was overflowing with large strips of carne asada and perfectly grilled peppers and onions. Everything on the menu is delicious. Our server was very helpful attentive. We love Mago and you will too.
All I can say was the food was fantastic! Menu selection was outstanding... Mole dishes were a hit and the variety was unlike any other Mexican restaurant. Will eat here again and bring friends!
Good food. Great atmosphere!
Mole, mole, mole! Such delicious mole we had at Mago last night. Still enjoying the leftovers! We also, as always, enjoyed the great dipping salsa options and guacamole. They really know how to do high-end Mexican food. Victoria was a great host for us as well — knowledgeable and fun. A great birthday experience for my wife and sister-in-law.
Our food was fine but not great. Ordered the Honcho cheese appetizer with peppers and it was really spicy. However, we specifically ordered the vegetarian fajitas spicy and they weren’t spicy at all. Our server seemed very rushed and was pretty curt with us. We’re probably not going back.
Phenomenal cuisine, ambiance, service and vibe. You feel right at home in Mexico when you eat here. The homemade salsa is to die for and the fajitas are amazing!!!
Loved the ambiance of Mago. The drinks were delicious, the fresh guacamole cart was a very nice touch. Tacos we okay. Would come back.
They served the smallest margaritas I’ve ever had for $13 each
Mago in South Barrington is consistently good. Great service, food, and they place my family in an ideal spot where we don’t have to shush our kids however we don’t have to yell to hear each other.
Food has gone down hill. Tacos were running with grease. Steak was medium well instead of rare.
Consistency we have been here several times and always great
Great experience with excellent food. Repeat costumer.
As always the food was excellent as well as the service! Enjoyable night out!
Bad service and overpriced . I would not recommend
