Nice place, atmosphere and people. The menu was a version of traditional Mexican, didn’t care for either dish chicken enchiladas too dry, not enough cheese. Wet burritos not offered with beef, the pork that was ordered wasn’t great.

Definitely order the loaded guacamole. It was the best part of the meal. I had crispy shrimp tacos and they were delicious also. My cousin said the Horchata is the best she's had

Terrible food and very expensive for what you get. No better than a ChiChi’s at 3x the cost. Slow service. First and last time there.

Food was not as expected, tasted bland! There was a hair in our salsa. Manager was gracious enough to take it off the bill along w the chicken enchiladas. You don’t go to a restaurant hoping to have it taken off my bill, you go w the expectation that the food is amazing in hopes of refunding. Also, a bit pricey for the qualitative food or lack thereof.

The margarita was amazing, the service was phenomenal but the food was a huge disappointment. Things were cold or tasted like they had been sitting out for hours. Not exactly how I wanted to spend my mothers day but the great service made up for bad food.

The Mother's Day Brunch was very good, but for 1:30 reservations, much of the food was at the end of the container. However, what we did eat was very good.

Had a reservation, was not seated until 25 minutes after reservation time. This has been the case the past three times we have been to Mex. When we got to our table, the server told us the kitchen was backed up and it would be best to order quickly if possible. The food is fantastic and the servers were very friendly. However, they need to fix their wait times and kitchen backup issues for us to go back.

Normally have a great time here but today was not a good experience , the wait time on order was extremely long to the point we started to leave, drinks Mex Mule which are generally great were horrible, gave waitress who was extremely nice a to go order to be placed before we left and we got that before our order even arrived.

Just a bad day for the Mex today we'll see how it goes the next time because there usually pretty good.

I had one of the best satisfying salads at Mex "The Mex Cobb" All the protein with a minimum of carbs.It was delicious and large enough to take home for supper. Tip: you don't need the dressing, it is delicious as is.

Came here for lunch with a coworker and I ordered the chorizo tacos. Tasted fantastic - flavorful combination, not too overpowering with the chorizo. I was reluctant to come here because the food in the past wasn’t all that great. However I decided to take another chance since my colleague wanted to come here. I am glad I decided to give it another chance. Our waitress was not as attentive as expected - unfilled drinks, didn’t check on us if we needed anything. However it was made up by the super friendly host who not only greeted us at the door but also was helping out in the restaurant by checking on guests, cleaning off tables, etc. Clearly a hard worker. He checked in on us and refilled our water/drinks. He was one of two host at the door, the other one not friendly (tall thinner guy) or helpful. I will be back for those tacos though!

Service was very slow. Took 20 minutes from being seated for someone to take our order. Took 50 minutes for a drink to arrive for my four year old, which was after discussing with the manager. When our concerns were discussed nothing was done about it, no apology or acceptance of our concerns just excuses.

It was disappointing to say the least but my children learned a lesson of how you “own” the mistakes rather than making excuses.

Ordered nachos and fajitas. Fajitas came without sour cream and guacamole and hardly any cheese. Nacho chips were too thick and had to ask for salsa.
Food average.

We have been to this restaurant before and had better experience so decided to visit again. However this time we were disappointed with overall ambiance , cleanliness as well as food quality. Food was not warm enough and tasteless. Dessert that we chose wasn’t available so we ordered another dessert which was a bit too sweet. So overall it was a dissatisfied experience.

Food cost was expensive , i know they will say that to maintain the food quality our cost is high however i do not agree with them as we have poor food quality too in our order in sense of salsa and shower creame . the nachos were backed but with less vegies and beans etc etc .

Excellent for a special night out but even as wonderful as the food is at MEX it's simply overpriced for a normal Saturday night on the town. The service was excellent although it was a little unnerving how the servers tried to upsell you at every turn and of course every option is indeed extra. The seating being so "cozy" we were able to hear the tables on either side of us going through the same sales pitch for each item. Even the appetizer, a twelve dollar chips and guacamole had a $1 option for salsa. We had a 6:45pm reservation on a Saturday and arrived within two minutes of our reservation. Although they were quite busy at the time, we were greeted promptly and seated within three minutes of being checked in. We ordered drinks which took about 15 minutes to arrive and when they did, came without straws which was a bit inconvenient and had to wait another four or five minutes for paper straws. Even the tacos came with an upsell option for a third taco ("Are you going to want a third taco with those"). Honestly, it was a great experience but I would tell the owner to ease up on pushing the extras.
