We love Meso Maya! The food is fantastic and the service is superior. Our party started with Mexican Martinis and Queso Poblano with Chorizo. Our amazing waiter Lilo recommended Pollo Budin Aztec, Cochinita Pibil, and Arrechera to share. Spot on! The dishes complemented one another so well for all four in our party. Lilo recommended the Pastel de Chocolate to finish. AMAZING! Can’t wait to come back!

It’s a bit difficult to explain everything because we were there on the night of a horrible storm. However the service was lacking and the best I can say is that it was poor. We waited forever for drinks , food, everything. I imagine that you don’t have enough people working there. The food was good but that is about the best thing I can say about our experience. Because of the weather there were fewer people and thus less noise.

We love Meso Maya and this is our favorite location. My fiancée and I came here for our anniversary. Jesus and Nancy were wonderful and made our evening very special. Our server, Mildred, was excellent. The food and drinks were delicious as usual.

Biggest thing was not being attended as often--we had ordered a side of queso and guacamole and we never received it. I would recommend this restaurant to someone who has time to wait.

We were selected to participate in the Dallas Arboretum Artscape. As out of towners we went to Yelp to find a place new to us with good reviews and found Meso Maya. Luckily we were able to find a convenient reservation time on Open Table so we were seated immediately upon entering the restaurant. The server was very kind but rushed as the place looked packed. The chips and salsa were on our table fast and they went fast too as both were sooo good. That salsa!!!! I wanted to bottle it up and bring some home. We ordered drinks and dinner fairly quickly and it was at the table fairly quickly as well. I ordered veggie enchiladas and hubby ordered shrimp and crabmeat enchiladas. Both were very good with great flavor. We shared a guacamole salad and I know I could have eaten the entire bowl myself! The noise level is fairly high but it's a large place and patrons and employees were everywhere. We're new fans & can highly recommend!

We're regulars, coming in almost every weekend. The service is warm, relaxed and timed to whatever "speed" we feel like eating and/or relaxing that day. Every waiter is excellent and we have become fond of several who treat us like family. The food is outstanding - not even close to Tex-Mex (though they do have outstanding tacos and enchiladas). Our favorites are the Salmon Di Coco, The Chile Relleno and Tostaditas. Oh, and their salsa is roasted chipotle, the best in town. Add in a couple of $3 bloody mary's and you can't beat it. We're so lucky to have them in our neighborhood!

All was good actually, except we didn't like that they put chairs at a booth to make more room felt they were in the way of walk flow for the staff.

I usually go
To the Downtown location, but I think I’m changing locations, it was my sons birthday dinner and due to work we needed a late dinner, I tried to go to the Downtown location and I called and they told me we couldn’t be seen at 8:30 because the kitchen closed at 8:30, I was disappointed that they close at 9 but kitchen closes at 8:30, but anyway I was able to reserve a table at the Lakewood location and they greeted us with a smile and served us with a smile k will go here again!!

The server was great! He took time to talk about both the restaurant and it's signature dishes, made sure we were taken care of at all time even though we were on the outside area and not a lot of other clients outside that day. The food was great too and big portions.
