Entire Staff was on-point. Host, servers, runners, bussers, etc.

Food was perfect. Ages ranged from 8 - 45, and everyone loved it.

Highly recommend.

Great bar atmosphere! Trendy, but comfortable. The food was good..but the portions were a bit small for the money. Yummy margaritas! I will definitely go back!

I really enjoyed MXDC, and I would return! Service was fast and friendly, and my salmon was amazing. My biggest complaint is that the dessert I ordered, the fried ice cream churros, cost $1 more on my bill than it did on the menu, and the churros didn't taste like real churros. I also had a difficult time hearing my friends talk.

I went for an early dinner by myself. The food was amazing and authentic. I had the queso dip with chorizo (I forgot the name of the dish) and the salmon and yellow rice, it was delicious! My waitress was very nice and attentive, even the bartender came over to bring my drinks. I loved this place, I definitely recommend for Mexican food lovers like myself! 10/10

Great drinks! And a good vibe, it’s a smaller restaurant but still had a great time. The queso was bomb and so are the mahi-mahi tacos.
