    Our table was ready when we arrived. After thoroughly studying the menu, we ordered nachos with guac for the table - delicious! For main course we ordered the spicy chicken bowl, our companion had a quesadilla. Portions are large, so with the nachos and the chicken bowl, we couldn't finish. But it was all tasty!

    Food was very good, our waiter Ryan was excellent. Made reservations but had to wait about 10 minutes for our table. Not horrible… but. There are too many tables in the space provided for dining. Especially the tables for two…there is literally a foot between them…can’t help but feel cramped. Really a shame because the food is quite good and the staff is very attentive

    Once we got our food no one came to check on us until it was time to pay and then they were happy to get us out of there as quick as possible. Food came out cold but no one came to ask and we waited so we sucked it up and ate. We got fajitas and only got two tortillas lol.

    took over fifteen minutes for a waitress to take care of us. Barely checked on us since we weren’t a table in her section. Food came out incorrect. Table was wedged in between two others. Not a manager in sight. Overall, not a pleasant dining experience.

    Due to the inclement weather, Mesa wasn't as busy as normal....so the noise level was low. We were greeted pleasantly when we arrived and shown to our table. The hostess was friendly and professional. Our waiter (Ryan) was professional, accommodating and knowledgeable. Our food was delivered to us exactly as we had ordered it. It was delicious. Ryan checked several times during our meal to see how everything was, or if we needed anything additional.

    normally I love Mesa. Maybe it was the holiday season but we had to find someone to wait on us. Although our food arrived promptly, our server disappeared. And, then a very large loud party was seated next to us and we were ignored. We would have ordered dessert but no one ever came by and we had to flag done someone else to get our check finally. I was eager to leave at this point as the noise level was ridiculous. The rest of the restaurant was relatively quiet on our way out. I don't know why they would seat a party of two in the back room next to two very large, loud parties when there was room in the front. I think our server was overwhelmed as she was very nice when we saw her (which was not much). Normally I like Mesa but won't be back during the holidays.

    Great ambiance. Spanish music playing and then they had a band. Margaritas are very good. They have Margaritas and tequila flights which is great. Food very good and they had vegan options for my wife. Cost was very good. Will be returning.

    It was really good but they were going to make us pay for soda refills. Luckily our server told us before but $3 for soda and refills??? That’s kinda ridiculous. I go here for an affordable dinner since I’m a college student. I’ve been going here for years and I guess this is new. Plus they’re in tiny cups. I know it’s just $3 but it’s annoying. They also took away the sides of guac. I like that the food is fast coming out but it was a little too fast but that can just be solved by spacing out the ordering

    The food was fabulous! Unfortunately, it did not come all at once so my main course was cold by the time my side was delivered. Our server was sweet but had to be asked several times to refill water etc.

    Special dinner out celebrating a coworker. Waiter took our drink order but didn’t bring our drinks for 30 minutes (???). Took our food order. We got our taco entrees before our appetizers. Very disappointed. Have come to Mesa many times and the service has been consistently poor the last couple of years. I won’t be back.

    The drinks were terrible; no fresh mint and very little alcohol. The appetizers were marginal, at best. The queso tasted off and was missing it’s smokey flavor. The steak fajitas came with very little steak. We frequent Mesa but will not be back for a long time. We are hopeful that whatever the issues are will get worked out over the next few months because Mesa is normally one of our favorites.

    We arrived in time to take advantage of Happy Hour. However, the server had no clue which items were on special which led to an extraordinarily long wait time until we were able to put our order in. When we received the bill the items we requested for Happy Hour had been rung in at regular price which was beyond frustrating. Our server was slow and inattentive. Our order was wrong and came out piece meal, which was annoying. The male host was seen multiple times lifting his shirt slightly and scratching/rubbing his stomach which was unappetizing while we were eating. Despite the good tasting food, the service was horrible and for that reason we have no plans on returning. There are plenty of other Mexican restaurants in the area with comparable food and much better service.
