Birthday with friends - party of 17 - a lot of work for one server, but she had plenty of support and did an amazing job! Thank you to Maria Elena for your hard work and excellent service.
We brought friends who where there for the first time and everyone loved their meal.
Thanks Mago! A great birthday!
The service was great from everyone who attended to us and everything regarding the menu was explained including sampling the sauces you could pick from. The food was really good, too, the salsas were delicious. I will definitely return.
Good Service and good food. We were seated in less than 3 minutes and the server greeted us right away.
An unfortunate off night for Mago. My family went out for St. Patrick’s Day dinner and the service was totally off. First, our server was basically cold and annoyed that I was not reciting the menu items appropriately in Spanish, and I had to check and repeat the orders of me and my young son about 3 times. A bus boy asked us if we wanted more tortilla chips, and we said yes. They never showed. Then our dinners were served ... except they forgot to put in our son’s order. So he hungrily nibbled off my plate while out original server and the one who delivered our food tried to triage the situation. My son’s food didn’t come out for another 10 min. No real apology once it was finally delivered. The food all tasted very good - just was a struggle from a service standpoint.
Delicious food,great service and a nice atmosphere.I really liked it
Our first visit for Valentine’s Day was great so we came back again. The table side prepared guacamole was fantastic. Definitely will return again and again
First visit but won’t be our last. Our server was excellent and the food was delicious.
Mago's Cantina is great for authentic Mexican cuisine and good service. They do a very fun birthday celebration, also.
Great food and service. Awesome decor. Generally cool place.
This was a late afternoon date, and her suggestion. I requested a booth and we took a high-top, by the bar, which was good and somewhat private. We both liked the interior atmosphere. My date and I both ordered the 2-taco entrees (she had 2 steak, I has steak and mahi-mahi) and they were delicious. Also ordered the made-at-the-table guac, which was supurb. The guava flan dessert was outstanding. My date had a large margatita, which was a bit pricey ($14). My Kaliper N/A beer was a reasonable $4. I did take advantage of the Groupon ($25 for $40 worth of food & drink) which is a good deal. Only comment is we had to ask a couple times for more chips, which we needed for the guac and salsa (they bring out a flight of three salsas, and we got extra mild. I would definitely go back! Our 4pm reservation was timed perfectly. When we left a couple hours later there was a line out the door. We both commented that the portions were just right, and we didn't feel stuffed, even with all the chips, salsa and guac. So we strolled to the cupcake store across the way and ordered a couple cupcakes each to go.
I was prompted to visit Mago after purchasing a Groupon deal. We made a reservation and were seated immediately. Our serve was very attentive and kind. The chips and salsa they gave when we sat down were very good. I also had a specialty margarita that was FANTASTIC. Our food came quickly and was very delicious and the portion sizes were generous. We had arroz con pollo and steak/shrimp fajitas. I think the value was the meal was great (with/without the groupon) The only negative was the seating arrangements. We had a small table for 2 and it was very tight. Had we both ordered fajitas it would not have been easy to keep everything on the table. Other than that I was very pleased and can't wait to return.
MAGO'S CANTINA SERVES TABLE SIDE GUACAMOLE WHICH IS DELICIOUS. THEIR AUTHENTIC MEXICAN CUISINE IS SUPERIOR TO MANY MEXICAN RESTAURANTS AND THE ATMOSPHERE IS GREAT.
Went here for a dinner date with my husband, and there were more children than we would have liked for a Saturday night. However, the food was fresh, fun and tasty and the service was great, so I can't really complain. Restaurant was noisy but we didn't have trouble hearing each other. Menu was a little pricey but plenty to choose from.
I had the orange chicken and it was bland and no orange taste anywhere in the dish. I had a few bites and took it home and threw it away. The table side guacamole is good but very expensive
A couple friends and I came here after church on Saturday night. I'm so glad that we made reservations because it was packed! Rightfully so as the food is very good. It's a bit pricey though, $11 for 3 tacos which does not include rice or beans with it. We've been about half a dozen times at this location and Arlington Heights who does have better mahi mahi tacos than this location [very dry here]. That's why I ordered the vegetarian tacos.
The waiting area, or lack of, was extremely crowded. Groups of people were waiting literally standing next to people eating their dinners. The food and drinks were very good but I would NOT go to this location again.
We met another couple. You walk into a crowd of people as there is no where to stand while waiting for your table. Noise level extremely high. Food was ok, the guacamole at table was the best. The pitcher of Margaritas that was half full of ice was $40. First and last time there for me.
Went here with a group of gals and the waitress asked us every 10 minutes if we were ready to order even after telling her we were waiting for another person before ordering. We were ordering rounds of drinks so it wasn't as if we were just sitting there eating chips (there was very little alcohol in the drinks). After our guest arrived, the waitress immediately asked if we were going order. She did even get a chance to see the menu. Once my friend looked over the menu, the waitress just stood there with her pad of paper and pen. Vegetarian enchiladas had nothing in them, so don't waste your money. Oh, and the persistent waitress? Never saw her again until after she dropped off the checks without asking if we wanted them. Will not be coming back here. Service sucked.
Always good, we go once a month.
Great Mexican food served amongst skulls and Lucha Libre Masks...fast service...guac made tableside...tasty salsas....worth it!
Great experience as always! Food is excellent!!
Guacamole table side was amazing. My carniasada was perfect the cheese enchilada was hard on the bottom. Margarita was excellent.
authentic, delicious Mexican cuisine. Very efficient servers
Started with the house three salsas. All were excellent. Table side guac was next. Tasty, but winter avocados weren’t ripe enough. Drinks and entrees were delicious. Deserts were great. One of them was a special Mexican chocolate flan that was outstanding. This needs to be a regular item on the desert menu. Our server was exceptional. The menu is a bit pricy compared to similar restaurants, but it’s not a deal breaker.
We love mago! The food is great my favorite Mexican place
Great food and service. Music was too loud and manager turned it down upon request.
The food and the service is great here. It is a little small inside which can make it feel cramped, but you forget all about that after a margarita or two.
The place is always a fun experience. I have consistently been disappointed with the level of seasoning. The cocktails and atmosphere make up for it and we are always happy to stop By for dinner.
Went in on a snowy evening so it was quieter than usual. The service was still outstanding and the food was delicious. The whole staff was helping each other which is great to see even on a slower evening. My guest and I loved both meals (chicken tinga enchiladas and carne asada burrito) and the fresh made guacamole is impossible to pass up!! Love the Mango Passion Fruit Sangria too!
I have eaten here many times and always have excellent service with tasty dishes.
Don't take a date here, our table was so small all our plates didn't fit. Waiter kept apologizing for bad experience, food is average. Not impressed, won't go back. table was smaller than our end table at home. should have known place was no good when there was no one waiting. we made reservations and the hostess was very RUDE. Don't take as date here if you are trying to impress. Awful is all I can say, Dear Mayo. Grill get tables that actually fit diner' s food/dishes and drinks. we won't be back.
We had a lovely get-together after work. The food was delicious and our server was splendid!
Once we discovered the Mago Grill & Cantina in South Barrington, we returned several times for different dining occasions . The food is great and interesting and the service has been outstanding. We will be back!
We had reservations for 5:30 but had to wait 15 minutes. Tables extremely close to each other and table side guacamole had to made two tables down since no room for cart. Service was good, food was good.
This was my best experience at Mago! First of all, this time they acknowledged my Open Table reservation. The service was very good. The food was especially exceptional. A very nice evening.
The person I met for dinner was very excited to have me try this restaurant. The margaritas were delicious. The entrees were just enough so you didn't feel stuffed. The variety of sides were nice and the steak was great. I plan to eat there again.
Love going here!
The best margaritas I have had complementing very thoughtful entrees
Guacamole made fresh to order! It is THE BEST! Great mojitos, too!
