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.

Food was good..Weeknight, maybe 5 tables occupied..service was amateurish and unprofessional..
.brought over our main courses 1 minute after our guacamole was prepared; did not replenish chips..Finally asked us if everything was okay 5 minutes after we were done eating..Zero coordination;May try one more time based on the food only.

This was our first time visiting Mesita. What greets(?) you immediately is the high noise level. The space is one large rectangle with a bar running half way down one side and tables and booths scattered throughout. Piped music and diners compete with virtually nonexistent soundproofing. Service was very attentive and helpful. The Mexican food was tasty and probably better than other Mexican restaurants in the area. Prices were fair. If you’re looking to eat and drink and don’t mind not having an audible conversation, then give Mesita a try.

Mesita is not a good value. The fajita dinner comes on a tray divided into many small portions. The size of the protein portion is a small square metal plate within the much larger tray, getting comparable billing to the sides, like the guacamole and sour cream. At every other Mexican restaurant I have been to, the main portion of the fajitas have been on a large sizzling oval plate. The sides were kept separate. Perhaps this is a way for the restaurant to save money on the more expensive items, like shrimp or beef, but it represents incredibly poor value. Furthermore, the drinks are heavily overpriced and pushed at every opportunity. This is a place for drinks and snacks, maybe brunch, but it does not compare to other choices in the area in terms of getting what you pay for.

I found my seat too low compared to the height of the table. I didn’t consume alcohol or chile, but I had severe acid reflux 2 hours later . Strange because I am very familiar with Mexican food. I like the place.

The waitress did not seem to know the menu, no personality, and it took forever to receive the food. We were also never asked if we wanted refills on our drinks. This dinner was for a birthday and it was embarrassing how much the restaurant was slacking.

drinks were terrible. Sent both of our drinks back because they were too sweet. exchanged for classic margarita which were also sub par. Got the meal for 2 with chicken steak chorizo and shrimp , that was good. Street corn was below average. Wouldn't return.

I wish I knew there would be a dj playing very loud music at 7pm. Would have never brought friends there to celebrate a birthday-could not hear our conversation! Our waitress was terrible and an 18% gratuity was added to our bill. The waitress never mentioned this. I guess she was hoping we didn’t notice and would tip on top of that. Not going back!
