WELCOME TO THE MULE.
We’re not your traditional Mexican place. We just happen to think that tacos are a dish best served fun, with a side of liquor. Welcome to The Mule, where tacos, tequila and bourbon come to party.
Located in one of Hamilton’s most beautiful spaces, we think we’ll be your new favourite lunch spot, your regular late-night haunt and your go-to destination for a good drink. Our bartenders have crafted a bourbon- and tequila-focused cocktail menu that will surprise and fascinate, and we also have a variety of beers on tap.
And don’t forget the food. From baja wings to beef-tongue tacos, chef Matthew Kershaw’s menu offers an approachable and fresh twist on your favourite flavours from way down south. Our tacos range from classic Mexican to weird-and-wild-you’ve-gotta-try-this. All of our food is 100% gluten-free and we offer a variety of fare that is sure to delight your vegetarian and vegan side.
It’s time to kick back, relax, grab a drink and eat s

    I requested seating in the covered patio and my reservation ended up here - great start! Our service was excellent at every touch point and our server Kayleigh was top notch! Kayleigh was great with cocktail recommendations and had the best attitude and delivery. Thanks for an exceptional evening out!

    There's nothing but good things to say about the mule. The food is phenomenal, every single time I go there. The staff are absolutely incredible. I have celiac disease and I can go there without ever worrying. It's my favorite place in Hamilton by far.

    My friends and I had a wonderful birthday/retirement celebration at The Mule. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The food and tequila were great! We especially enjoyed sitting in the outside courtyard. Thanks to the staff for making us all feel welcome.

    I don’t believe in tiny tacos no matter how tasty. Two bite tacos should bot exist, and if they do, they should be less than $6.50

    The service and the place are great but whoever decided to remove the pork belly taco and replace it for the chicharrón wasn't thinking right. I would rather pay more for the pork belly taco than eating the chicharrón which is a very dissaponting taco. Hopefully you will reconsider and bring back what was the best ítem in the menú.q

    Great atmosphere, decor and food! As a vegetarian with numerous food intolerances the server was so helpful with helping me choose appropriate dishes and arranging with the kitchen to make the necessary changes. The cocktails were fantastic and the food was very tasty. The music was a bit loud in the back dining room for proper conversations but the bar area seemed a bit quieter. We will definately be visiting again!

    The nacho chips were small broken pieces, not useful for dip it came with. The dip was ordinary processed cheese. Fish tacos, very small fish pieces, mostly batter, tasteless. No silverware was supplied.

    Went with a larger family group for the first time and we had a great experience. Food and drinks were delicious, loved the artwork and decor, and our server Katie (I think) was amazing! A little pricey but worth it for a special occasion. Also a little loud for our liking but tolerable. Will definitely be going back!

    Made a reservation and they said they didn’t have our table available. Our order was taken 45 minutes after our reservation time. Thankfully our server was able to rush our order as we had a show to attend (which is why I made reservations)

    Requested hightop seating didn’t happen even though restaurant was empty. Wasn’t provided with plates or cutlery. Cutlery was provided after being asked and still no plates. We made do as we had waited long enough. Other than that food was excellent but noise level very high but tolerable.

    Very disappointed in the food served. Margarita was extremely weak and served in a small rock glass! Fundido was basically cheese sauce in a small serving bowl, with little bit of green onions sprinkled on top. Definitely should not be called a fundido. Prices are extremely high compared to quality and quantity of food served. Also was interrupted so many times to collect dishes from table, felt very rushed and as they didn't have enough serving dishes.
