The food was rly good, although the there weren't many people in there. It might do better if there were some outdoor seating.

The food was excellent! Great extraordinary flavors. Loved the food. Guacamole was the best we've had.

Noise level is pretty high in the main room by 6:30 or 7:00 on a Saturday night. (Apparently, it is much better on weekdays.) Overall, the food was a stand-out, one step beyond.
The servers know what to recommend.

The food was good but good enough to merit what was charged. We were a party of three and all ordered the special and we shared an order of guacamole and a dessert. The bill was over $50.00 a piece. A bit bit pricey for a BYOB. The special was $10 more than other entrees. Our fault for not asking.

We went to Mixteco for Father's Day. We had heard good things about it for years. Now we know why! 4 people, 4 entrees. Best was Pollo en Mango--wow. Second was Borrego en Mole--lamb chops. Also carne asada, enchiladas en mole were very good. Service was very attentive. Dining room has great Oaxacan art and beautiful colors. The menu was a little difficult for our unadventurous 15-year-old. We considered asking them to do some basic chicken tacos but we didn't--I would try that if you have a picky eater. We'll be back for sure!

Mixteco is one of my favorite Chicago restaurants. The food is absolutely delicious and some of the most authentic food you can get in Chicago. I highly recommend the enchiladas mole. The service is always outstanding and I love that it is BYOB.

When I first got there - the host were so rude and told me I missed my 6:00pm reservations - I told them my reservations were 7:00pm - he said no - I had to locate my reservation - I showed them and he said oh - ok, there were two Roberts - I let it go to enjoy my BFF birthday party and happy I did.

We have been to Mixteco many times over the years (even before they opened up the back room) and have never had a bad meal there. Their sauces are boss! We recommend getting a reservation because it can get packed. It is also quite noisy and the food can sometimes come a little too quickly for our tastes (we want to chill with our wine a bit). A great BYOB!!

On Mother's Day we came for dinner and were treated like honored guests. The food was great and the evening was notable. We come as often as we can.
