The service was incredibly slow. Friendly, but slow. We spent quite a bit of time sitting with empty drinks that we would have gladly paid to refill!

That being said, the food is pretty good if you’re not on a schedule.

The Margarita's are wonderful...... Try the Skinny!

We were a party of 8. We were seated within moments of arriving (a few minutes late for our reservation due to nasty weather). seated and the big round table which was great for conversation.
Chips and Guac were yummy. Queso was just OK. Some of us like Mexican food more than others but we all found something to enjoy.
Wig (our water was very patient with us!) and took good care of us and our dinner needs.

My fiancé and I dined in for our 3 year dating anniversary. She is from California and absolutely LOVES Mexican food so let me start by saying she is very hard to please when it comes to trying New Mexican restaurants.

We arrived for our reservation early and were seated immediately. Our waiter Wig was exceptional the entire time; he made us feel right at home. We had a starburst margarita which came out quick and was amazing so we definitely recommend trying something from the bar. The food was authentic! My fiancé had carne asada nachos (special order) and the dish was so large I had to help her with it; definitely worth the money. I had the al pastor taco platter which was also very good. My compliments to the chef! We will definitely be returning for more of those awesome eats! Thanks for giving my fiancé a little piece of “home” here in Michigan!

We had an 8:00 PM reservation on a Saturday night. Upon arrival we were informed that we could not be seated for 15 minutes due to a kitchen hold on seating. 25 minutes later we still not seated and were informed that we would have to wait another 20 minutes. The hostesses were polite but we asked to speak with a manager, who was rude & told us we would have to wait because they were busy & backed up. Half of the tables inside the restaurant were empty. We left and will not be returning to MEX.

Kitchen seemed to be having some problems getting food out timely. Rice did not come until ten minutes after mains. The rice, like the rest of the food, was delicious; but how does a Mexican restaurant not have rice ready on a continuous basis? Will definitely be back for the food. We were in no rush, so took delays and disorganized order of the meal in stride. Hopefully it was a one-time glitch.

MEX once again was wonderful. I met friends for drinks and snacks. Our waiter was happy to bring us just drinks, chips and guacamole as well as spaghetti squash - even if he was annoyed that a friday night table didnt' eat much he didn't show it. As one of my party said Mex is always a great place whether you order a huge order or a small one. Great food and a great place! One of my favorites.

I passed by the restaurant a million times and decided that this would be a great place for a date and I. The unfortunate thing was I was dieting and was not able to fully indulge in the menu as I watched other customers have delectable plates that passed me by with my mouth watering. I really enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant and the staff was very friendly and courteous to all the customers. I definitely would recommend anyone that has a taste for a exquisite dining experience.

There were eight in our party. We were seated on time. That was about it. After we gave our order, we waited for over 45 minutes for our food. The waiter came over to tell us, after at least a half hour had elasped, that the kitchen got some of the order wrong and was remaking it. Still, we waited. The manager came by and offered his apologies...that was it at the time. Then, I believe he changed his mind and offered us all a free desert. Food finally came. It was ok. But one entree was totally incorrect. That was taken off the bill. However, after an unsatisfactory experience, none of us wanted desert especially since we had two young school age children with us. No other consideration was shown by management. I find this lack of appropriate customer relations both surprising and distressing.

We have dined here several times, dinner and a couple of lunches. It is a busy schedule place but staff always pleasant and helpful. We are wine people so cannot address cocktails. Portions generous and tasty. Not really TexMex or mainland Mexico but good choices to satisfy everyone.

Even with a reservation, we were given what was probably the worst table....air conditioning blowing down right on us. When we asked for a different table, we were told they all were reserved. We opted to be seated in the bar which was so cold with wind blowing in from outside. Apparently they can't close the windows which makes no sense. My guest had a taco plate which she didn't like-tasteless which heavy, soggy shells. I had the salad where you choose everything yourself which was quite good.

I've been going to MEX for several years and have noticed the quality of both the food and service slowly diminishing. There are no new dishes or specials and this past visit the service was downright awful. It used to be my go to place for business meetings - will reconsider for next time.
