Love this place though it's a bit pricey for Mexican food. $10.50 for a side of guac and $13 for a sangria is steep imo.

Friendly hostess and server. The food and drinks just lacked any pizazz. No salsa. I asked for jalapeños they arrived well into the meal. The tomatoes in the quac were runny and tired.

We weren’t asked about drinks or apps until 45 mins after being seated and we didn’t get served our first drink or chips for 20 mins after that. The drinks are super expensive and given the price range on the menu - I would expect much more attentive service - especially earlier in night with very few tables seated. I am not sure if this was the wait staff’s issue or lack of service behind the bar or in the kitchen. I’m hoping this is related to pandemic employment issues and not how this restaurant is all the time. I’ll give it another try in the future.

Our drinks, red sangria and margaritas, were great. Delicious chips and salsa. The corn on the cob was terrific and the waitress had suggested substituting it for a side dish so I didn’t need to pay extra. The rice is terrific, and did not have that consistency suggesting out of a box.

service was prompt and attentive. We had a group of 6 that arrived at different times, but that did not seem to phase the waiter. The manager came over to check as well. Looking forward to the wall of hot sauces to return post covid.

Server was extremely friendly and polite. The food was NOT so great. Both of our mahi fish tacos were very dry and only one tiny tiny piece of fish in each taco.

The experience we had was at best mediocre. Service was great, food was terrible. The refried beans as well as the steak taco were unnecessarily hot. Hot without much flavor. The rice was tasteless and mushy from overcooking.

Good is over priced and drink barely had any alcohol in it. It was more ice in it than anything else. Drinks prices are overpriced as well. I would not go back again!!!! Very disappointed they even charge for simple chips and salsa which is free at other places. After spending almost $100 we have to eat somewhere else.

Our server was great! Unfortunately, we reserved an outside seat but, due to staffing issues, no one could sit in the tent. The hostess opened our window , which helped .

This was our first visit to the restaurant after hearing a great deal about it. The menu was very limited but the service was great. Based on the food that was sampled it’s not enough for me to return.

The drinks and food were expensive and terrible !! I got the smallest cheese quesadilla for $13.50. It was tiny and ridiculous. The service was so slow. The restaurant was not busy and it took forever to get drinks. The table was dirty, the booth was dirty. The drinks were not as described. Will not return.

I understand the challenges in food service at this time, however, the food was very poor quality- comparable to a lunch cafeteria. Most disappointing, was that I was entertaining guests and was very disappointed that I took them for that meal.

I will be contacting the restaurant which I have never done before.

We love Mex! We dine here weekly. We are very sadden to see they removed the nachos and the chicken enchiladas from the menu as these two things were the entire reason we make the hour drive here weekly! Due to staffing issues they had to reduce the menu options. Sad. I hope one day things return to normal and people will return to work! We are here to support you Mex!

Everything was wonderful, only thing is that the beers where limited. I guess due to covid deliveries are not being made on time. But I had the Margaritas so it was all good for me.
