Waited over a hour for food. After an hour and a half and I had somewhere to be, I cancelled my order paid for 3 drinks and then they tried to serve my food. Only two people and we both ordered tacos.

Try the Burdin Azteca Chicken, a great dish that you won't get elsewhere

Food was not as good as I remembered. I had enchiladas and they were very so so. The queso was like water! So very thin.......
Nice waiter but not the most attentive. I had to call him out to come back and take a drink order.
I really think waiters need to take a glance at their tables when walking by.....

Had dinner prior to attending The Eagles Concert at the American Airlines Center. Chef prepares authentic Mexican cuisine. Large variety of menu items, margaritas and tequilas. Food was excellent. Service was excellent, attentive and knowledgeable of menu. Location was within walking distance to concert venue. Highly recommend and will return.

Meso Maya has delicious authentic Mexican food—which is a rare find admits all of the TexMex down here! Each appetizer (guacamole, taquitos) and entree (carne asada tacos, elote cream and brussel sprouts) were delicious and their margaritas were divine! The flan was remarkable, I wish we had ordered 2! For a busy Saturday night we were in & out of the restaurant within an hour, which was great having a newborn. Service was prompt and they ensured our drinks were always full. We will definitely be visiting Meso Maya next time we are craving Mexican cuisine!

Had brunch this weekend for the first time and LOVED it! My mom had the Mexican toast and I had Chiliquillas. Both meals were amazing and the service was even better. Diana is a great waitress and Alberto, the manager, made sure to stop at our table to ensure we were enjoying our meal. Will def be going back

Every time we visit from out of state, we make sure to dine here. This time we had a few things from the brunch menu. Everything is always outstanding!! From the chips and salsa to the cafe de olla, they never disappoint.

I had shrimp tacos. My husband had chicken enchiladas. Outstanding. Sat on the patio, and even though it was hot, it was comfortable. The avacado margarita was to die for. We love this place. The service could have been better. We waited a long time for a refill on water and chips, but we will definitely be back.

I had made reservations through open table I also called ahead to confirm reservations. When I get to restaurant they say they don’t show a reservation under my name. Luckily I had the confirmation on my phone through open table. So they did not have a choice but to seat all 6 of us.

The service was terrible the server was rude. Food was also not that great for a Mexican place they serve you white rice with enchiladas. Overall a terrible experience. Never going back.

Didn’t know what to expect as I’ve not been back to Dallas in years and couldn’t figure out if I was at El Fenix or? Here’s the thing, it was great and it was great I could have a healthier version of an El Fenix fix. Recommend the Pozole with no reservations. And the cashew cheese needs to be on everything. Great to get to have a Vegan experience in my home state of meat.
