Mexican
Mesita, which translates to “small table”, serves authentic, modern, Mexican cuisine in a vibrant atmosphere. The menu, created by Chef Victor Chicas, features fresh guacamole prepared table-side, mouth-watering Mexican street corn, fire-grilled fajitas, along with burritos, tortas, tacos and many other house-made Mexican dishes. The combination of our traditional menu and playful décor with our rustic Mexican flair provides a dining experience that truly embodies the Mexican spirit. Mesita is the newest addition to the Rockville Centre restaurant scene and we are steps away from the LIRR.

We were seated right away (had reservations) and greeted by our waitress quickly. The waitress was cheerful and had great suggestions. Food came out quickly but we were not rushed to finish and enjoyed the entire dinner. Highly recommend steak, shrimp, chicken or combo fajitas. We tried the combination fajita which was very flavorful and had enough to enjoy leftovers the next day. Several great drink options and the tres leches cake for dessert was delicious. There were groups of all ages including, couples, friends and families.

Food was better than any other Mexican restaurant I have eaten at, which is many! Service was excellent. Drinks were great. Music was great, a little loud for me, but I'm 58 years old.

First of all- the food is always amazing. We got the table side guacamole, authentic street shrimp tacos (holy smokes) and chicken enchiladas. All amazing. No complaints. Little pricey but worth it!

Our server? -100/10. We had a reservation and were sat in the bar area at a table. Natalie was her name. I’m assuming she was a bartender as well because she spent most of her time behind the bar. Initial reaction from her was complete annoyance like “why are you here”. She rolled her eyes, hastily took our order, and not once came back to see if we needed anything. We had to ask a manager for more water, that’s how awful it was. For the price of the food- I expect better service. We decided that should we return- we will specifically ask to NOT be sat in her area. I can understand being busy or overloaded with tables but- her attitude completely ruined a lovely, much needed evening out for us. Your staff does make a difference!

Went on Friday the 12th and was pleasantly surprised with a live Dj. I was expecting the salsa music which I love but this was nice and unexpected.
The Dj was great, mixing old with new and it was so good I just wished they had dancing 💃🏽. Felt like old times. Thanks mesita for a great pre valentines meal with music 🎶

I was very displeased with the service of the security and management team. While I was visiting this establishment I as well as my guest was verbally harassed in which we defended ourselves but we were treated as we were the aggressors in the situation. They do not follow social distancing protocols within this establishment I requested that the security guard not get in my face to which she responded that he did not need to listen to me and respect the CDC guidelines of 6 feet.

As someone who has been patronizing this establishment for over three years I am extremely disappointed in this experience. I would not recommend anyone to service this establishment as they do not provide a safe and inclusive environment for all patrons.

Made reservations, was about 15 mins late but was able to sit down right away when arrived. We were allowed to sit down although everyone in our party was not there at the same time. Waiter was very patient as we waited for our friend to arrive. Food & drinks were really good. If you love Mexican food and margaritas I would definitely recommend.

Wonderful date idea. Food is great. Prices are a bit higher than the usual Mexican spot but it’s expected because of the pandemic. Parking is hard to find and the place is very busy. Overall, had a wonderful time with my date. If you’re planning on saving money, get the Parillada Mexican. It comes with steak, churizo, grilled chicken and shrimp. Serves 2-3 people. We had to pack our food to go.

It was my first time here and I had a good experience. We went on Taco Tuesday. We had a reservation and only had to wait a short while before we were seated. We were seated in the party room in the back, but we were happy with it. The food and service were good. Although the actual prices were a bit higher than what was listed on the website, the food was still cooked very well and was a good value. I want to go back to try some additional dishes. I would recommend this place overall.

Had a great time here. I’ve had a few brunches here in the past but wanted to introduce my family to this nice spot. Brunch food is amazing. I love the variety of choices you get to have... I would say everything is my favorite but my go to breakfast is their Mesitas French Toast. Getting their guacamole is a MUST. It’s a good shareable size of guacamole for a party of 4-6. Servers are great. I enjoy their bottomless memosas too.

Highly energetic and enjoyable and crowded. From the moment we arrived—make reservations—and greeted by Eric and a most friendly staff, we had a great time. Great margaritas and appetizers—msin course good but not up to the total experience. Dessert Muy bien tambien.
