Mexican
Chef Nico’s love for the culinary arts started at age nine, when he worked for a bakery, making deliveries and assisting in the kitchen in Mexico. Nico honed his skills at several restaurants throughout the country, in states such as Vera Cruz, where he learned about seafood, dried chilies, and making sauces from scratch, and Oaxaca, where he perfected tamale-making techniques. In 1996 he left Mexico for Dallas so he could pursue his goal of becoming a renowned chef. By traveling from state to state throughout Mexico, Chef Nico learned many of the culinary skills that patrons in the area enjoy every day. Chef Nico earned his reputation within the Dallas restaurant scene by working at Cuba Libre, The Porch, Hibiscus, and Meso Maya. His food is celebrated for its complexity, unique presentation, and fresh flavors (thanks, in part, to his love of gardening—he grows peppers, tomatoes, squash, and onions).

Very accommodating staff, and the bar staff was exceptional. We stepped away from our dining table to watch a football game at the bar area and hadn’t realized we were there past closing time. The staff never once made us feel rushed to leave, on the contrary they asked multiple times if there was anything else we needed. Will definitely come again if in the area.

Meso Maya was a great restaurant. They were very polite and helped in every way possible. They made my proposal to my fiance great and made sure the eating experience was just as great.

1st time dining at this Addison location. Salsa was a bit different from the downtown location but still very good. I just noticed immediately it was not exactly the same recipe.

Overall, great experience, per usual, when dining at Meso Maya.

Margaritas are overpriced and not as good as I make at home - I had forgotten that from last time, and the entrees are a bit pricey too, but the food is very good. Overall we enjoyed our evening, but a $200 dinner for a party of 6 is a little more than I expected.

Ordered two teas and we had to use our forks to stir sweetener. My order came out but my partner's didn't. 10 minutes later it did after complaining. Some of the items on my plate were cold. Better service at a taco cabana.

The waiter did a fine job, but the food was totally off. The chips were stale and all broken. The steak was over cooked. The beans on the plate were ice cold. And when we told the expediter immediately after her dropping off the food, she just shrugged and walked away.

Overall, a disappointing first experience. And one we will not be repeating. Bummer. Definitely not what we were expecting from this restaurant or even Addison level restaurants.

This was my 2nd time to Meso Maya and unfortunately, there were just too many things not great about it so I likely won't return.
1) Drinks got low and we had to ask for refills
2) Ran out of Salsa and had to ask for me, I did not feel like our server was very attentive and it was a Sunday evening and relatively slow.
3) My Brussel Sprouts were just horrible. The seasoning was not very good and they were soggy. I ate one and pushed it aside. My server asked me if I wanted a 'togo' box to take them home? I didn't even eat them, he should have asked me if something was the matter.
4) There were 3 men in my party and the portions were stingy. I don't know if they are cutting back, but 2 of my guests left still hungry.
5) My coffee had to be made 3 times. First time it was luke warm, second time there were all kinds of coffee grounds in in it because the server said the bag broke. So, I gagged on a mouth full of grinds when I took a sip.

There are so many restaurants in the DFW Metroplex, average restaurants won't survive. I give this place 3 stars because it wasn't horrible.

Food was quite good. Service quite bad. Took us over one hour (literally) to get 2nd round of drinks for our table. Even worse than the delay was that our waiter tried blaming the delay on a busy bar (not even all of the seats were filled, nor was the restaurant full), did not express any apology when pressed, and they didn’t even comp the drinks once they finally came. Not sure if our waiter didn’t realize to complain the round (we noted this) or if he was not allowed to do so. Very poor experience in terms of service.

We had to go to the hostess to get them to send someone to help us. We had waited while numerous employees walked past without anyone offering to take care of us. For a 6:00 reservation with only one other table in the patio at the time is not an acceptable level of service.

Highly recommend this place for authentic Mexican food. Everything there is delicious and you can’t go wrong with any dish. Our waiter Johnathan was very kind and attentive. The music was at a good level and the ambience was very calming. Great for date night or for a casual dinner.
