I crave this food. We don’t live close but it’s worth the drive. The lobster tostadas are divine

The MBC Experience is an excellent value. You get so much food, and it gives you an excellent overview of MBC’s food offerings. Also, the drinks are amazing.

Our waitress was sweet but bartenders were slow and rude. My friend was sick the next day. I didn’t taste her carne tacos but that was the only thing she ate that day that I didn’t taste.

MBC is a great option if you are don’t want to eat that much or just want to have some drinks and small bites. The decoration and ambience is nice. Waitress was outstanding! Super friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable about the menu.

Ok... let’s go back to the food. 🤣I mean if you are ordering the “Tostada with lobster” please make sure eat a snack before at home. It’s literally the smallest tapas I ever seen. Presentation was awful and I find it kind of funny (to be sarcastic). First, don’t call it “Tostada”.... this was not a typical round, it was legit 3 round Tostitos. In addition to, it comes served on a huge narrow plate where the Tostitos are spaced out in between like the last three pieces left on a party tray 🤪😂. My friends and I even joked about it. We told the waitress that If the dish would’ve come decorated with some creative leaves, sauce or on top of something else maybe it wouldn’t been that shocking. Therefore, this was not the only small portion on the menu. Tacos were extremely small quantity as well. It was pricey, not worth the money or the value.

I’ve been in plenty of tapas style restaurants and understand the concept of sharing etc. However, this is not a tapas restaurant and if so you have to acknowledge that on the menu. Also, if you are a tapas concept make sure the food is an explosion of flavors and it’s so tasteful that you will definitely forget the price and quantity.

Best food I have had in a long time of any cuisine. Felt and tasted like we were in an upscale restaurant in downtown Mexico City where the high society eat, yet we couldn't believe how inexpensive the bill was... Get the chef's choice menu. You won't be disappointed...

Overall good for the Sunday brunch. Ample food variety you get both Tex-Mex and they also have the usual bacon eggs waffle choice. The Tex-Mex food tastes good not greasy nor salty. There was a dish which is salty for me which is bearable but then again I don’t use salt much when I eat (maybe bland for others). Have the mimosa as it will help clean your palate every new dish you try. Excellent service. Very good price for buffet brunch ($33pp includes a bottle champagne for the mimosa and tax. No gratuity yet).

Alexis was awesome! I had been a handful of times before, but she was the best server I’ve ever had there. She was friendly, accommodating, and took extra steps to ensure our food could be and was prepared exactly how we wanted. The last two times I’ve dined have been just average, but my husband and I were very pleasantly surprised tonight with the food on point and the service outstanding.

It’s kind of ridiculous that a mixed drink (Ranch water) is $16. I ordered the same drink before but with Casa Migos instead of Patron for $11. I won’t be back, especially since we like drinks. $100 for 6 mix drinks is a bit much.

Every time I eat at MBC, I am impressed by the food and service but on Christmas Eve I expected that it may be chaotic. Instead it was one of the best meals we have ever had on Christmas Eve. Not only was the food incredible, the special menu gave us an opportunity to try new things that were all soo good. The service was the excellent! Our waiter made sure we had the best experience possible. You knew he was busy but he made you feel like you were his only table for the evening. Thank you MBC. We will be back!!

We went to the Mexican Company with some friends as it was highly recommended. The only issue we had was that there was a large party already there which slowed the service down. The food was definitely worth the wait though! The manager also took care of our appetizers which was nice. I will definitely come back!

Fantastic food! This is our 2nd time at Mexican Bar; the 1st time we tried brunch and the pancakes were out of this world. The 2nd time we went for dinner. The chicken (which takes 30 min) was worth every minute. The only recommendation i would make is the menu said it was chicken with rice and plantains... so i was expecting actual plantains. I was told they were in my rice which i couldn't see or taste, so had to order a side of plantains.

I can't rate our experience high enough! It was absolutely great. Our server was Chris - he made fantastic recommendations, made sure he checked on us throughout our visit and you could just tell that he loved his job. We never felt rushed and Chris even encouraged us to hang around for salsa. I will definitely return and even ask for Chris! Do yourself a favor and order the lobster tostadas - you will not be disappointed.

Mexican Bar Co. is probably one of my favorite places to go for shareable meals!
This was my second time going but my boyfriends first time. He absolutely loved everything about this place and so did I. The drinks (both had margaritas on the rocks) were made perfectly. The food was fantastic we shared the seasonal guacamole with chips, the skirt steak, and the crispy Brussels sprouts. Let me tell you that I could eat that skirt steak every day and be happy!
I would highly recommend Mexican Bar Co. to anyone wanting a casual restaurant, for any event ( was our anniversary) with great food and drinks!

The tacos are $9 for two very small tacos...only about 3 bites each. We chose the white fish and they were not worth it. Other than that, the ceviche tasting platter was good and the steak/potatoes/beans/cheese enchilada plate was delicious.
