Our waiter was excellent! He knew the menu. He explained the type of quiescence. He was very polished and an excellent ambassador for the restaurant.

The food arrived just the way we ordered it and tasted amazing!

We will be back!

With many available tables and booths we were seated in a small table in the corner overshadowed by a large plant looming over us. We had to ask the waitress to bring out waters since we had only been seated and not approached for the first 15 minutes. Finally when the server returned with our waters she dropped them off and left. It was 37 minutes into being there and when she finally returned to take our order. Our food arrived and the food itself was delicious. We finished our food and bussers came by to clear plates. We wanted to order and desert and had to get the attention of a different waitress to get us a menu. This took another 12-15 minutes. When a woman who looked like a manager came over with the desert menu and asked us if she could take the chair that our little girl had been sitting in, but was currently not using. Her napkin was on it and they moved it onto the table and proceeded to take the chair for another party. All the while the tables in the center of the restaurant still remained empty. The chair could have been taken from somewhere else. In all our desert came and that was when we finally saw our original waitress. I am highly disappointed by the service we were given because the food was delicious. We will avoid this location from now on.

Just horrible service from waiter who spent all of his time with parties in the very back - we were in the front. There was a 10 minute timeframe between when a couple of plates were taken until I had to ask one of the managers for the check! Never saw our waiter again and the manager did not care and did nothing but walk away when we complained! Just a bad bad dining experience at a place that normally is ok.

Will be a while before we return if we do! With so many other restaurant choices- this went from a go-to place to an afterthought in the future!

Stopped by for a quick evening meal and decided to sit at the bar. Elvis the bartender greeted us and quickly provided us with water. He also asked if we wanted to see a menu and promptly handed both of us a menu. I ordered a Top Shelf Margarita on the rocks without salt, and my wife ordered a House frozen margarita with a shot of Chambers mixed in. Both drinks were excellent. We both then initially ordered the Salmon with coconut rice and mixed vegetables. Elvis explained they also were serving a Glazed Salmon on a bed of roasted Brussels Sprouts so I switched my order to that. Both entrees were cooked to a perfect medium temperature and the flavors of each were very good indeed.

Mexico City take on Tex Mex. Service and food are in keeping with quality level for this type of restaurant. I have one complaint and it is a show stopper: Noise. It wasn't full and the noise prevented conversation at casual volume level. Noise alone has kept Meso Maya off my regular rotation list and prevents me from recommending it.

I'm happy that we were seated and greeted right away. The customer service was great. The food however was disappointing. It lacked seasoning and flavor and my chicken was so dry. The rice was hard and slightly undercooked. The avocado drink was delicious and that is possibly what would bring me back. I was very excited to try Meso maya. I feel as the though the prices don't match the quality of the food. I will give them another try to see if it was just an off night.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is consistently authentic and excellent, and I don’t believe there is a friendlier or more professional restaurant staff in Dallas! You can’t go wrong at Meso Maya

We have been to Meso Maya a few times before and wanted to give our out of town family who was visiting a good Tex Mex culinary experience. We chose Meso Maya for the fun and lively atmosphere and good food. I must say, this last time, I was a bit disappointed with the service. Although our waiter was quite attentive and pleasant, I felt that the entire dinner was rushed through as if the staff couldn’t wait to turn the table over. My sister-in -law’s salad arrived at the same time as her entree and the waiter wanted to clear all the plates from the table before our last guest was through eating, which in my opinion, is very bad etiquette. I understand the restaurant needs to turn the tables over efficiently in order to accommodate their clientele, however a reasonable amount of time should be allowed for a group to comfortably digest their meal and enjoy their experience as this is clearly not a fast food restaurant. As it was, we sat, ordered ate, drank, and vacated the meal in under an hour.

Still the best guacamole in town, queso was slightly runny, great chicken enchiladas,
margaritas could stand a drop or two more tequila, and the grilled steak was tasty
and cooked as ordered. We'll be back again.

My husband and I visited for an early-ish dinner (6:15) on a Friday night. It was no overly crowded when we arrived and we were seated right away. The place did start to fill up around 6:45-7:00. The service was excellent! Every employee was friendly, kind, and helpful. The food was very tasty as well. Excellent overall experience.

Food and service is very good. It was a Friday night and there were children everywhere. I was surprised to see so many babies and adolescents because the price and atmosphere isn't a kid kind of place. Must be this particular part of Dallas.

Highly disappointed. We ordered two soups for appetizers and they were lukewarm. We were at a business meeting so we did not want to attract any attention. Then we ordered queso fundido and the plate that it was sitting on had handprints and food remnants on it. Our server was not around and we had to go get the Manager. He promptly changed out the plate but we wish we did not have to do that. Our server was fine but we lost her at the end of the night due to closing duties. It was just okay so I would not recommend.
