Not acceptable
It was a birthday celebration with zero accolades. Very disappointing, to say the least. No requested beers available. Salmon was undercooked. Server was not attentive after half then all plates were served. There are too many better restaurants in Dallas to return to this one.
We’ve been here many times, this was our last.

Drinks are nice and menu reads well but unfortunately, the food was not very well made or very good quality. The steak was way to fatty and not edible. The chicken quesadilla was "shredded chicken" but there was a chicken bone in it which made no sense. It was not very good.

I have to mention the bathroom since there was no soap in the dispenser, nor any hand sanitizer available. Although there was a note posted that employees must wash their hands before returning to work, I wondered what they were washing their hands with. Thankfully I had my own sanitizer. Regarding the food, I have had better elsewhere so it would be hard for me to recommend going here.

It's been awhile since we've been there due to COVID, but the service and food was just as good as we remembered. And excellent top shelf margaritas! We went early and it wasn't crowded nor did we feel rushed. We'll be back soon!

Food was really bad! Garnish was wilted, almost dead as if it had been sitting out all day. Guacamole was gray! I was embarrassed to invite someone for a meal there. Will never go back. To many good Mexican restaurants in Dallas to have an experience this bad.

We love Meso Maya, and have for years. The window/doors were open and the evening
was totally delightful. Our server was excellent, and it was great to see the smiles on
everyone. This is always a happy place, and much of that should be attributed to the management. Food was great, margaritas top notch, all at a fair price. We'll keep on coming back for more.

It was a nice afternoon, so we thought it would be great to eat outside. The server was pleasant, capable, and attentive when she happened to go to the outside tables. Not sure if she had other tables inside, but the table assignments must have caused the delay in between when we would see a server.

Food was on the cold side when we got it. Prices have gone up and the portions seemed to have shrunk a bit. Not a terrible experience but not the same as pre-COVID days. The noise was the music blasting at too high of a volume.
