    I planned on eating here one night while on a business trip but when I was charged $6 for a bottle of Dos XX, I bailed. I can see paying this for a good draft beer but a bottle of Dos XX? I got the impression that the place just too pricy after paying for the beer and looking at the menu. I ended up walking down the street and had a good meal somewhere else for a reasonable price.

    Went here about a week ago during my lunch break. There were, really not exaggerating either, 6 people on the whole place. We ordered burritos and literally had to get up towards the kitchen and ask about our food. I don't get how this was so slow. We took it to go and was given the orders wrong as well. They should have given us a discount or if anything free. They were not even apologetic about anything.

    Tonight I had the carne Asada plate and the food is delicious. I have no problem with the service and the food. However I do feel that you can get exact quality elsewhere for much less. The food is quite pricy considering what is served. All in all great experience but again overpriced.

    I really liked this place. The atmosphere is quaint and cute. The Margs are amazing. A little pricey but worth it. Delicious. The Food was good. The meat was perfect, and the red sauce was flavorful and had a small hint of heat. The salsa was perfection. I would recommend this place for date night or small group gatherings.

    Just moved in down the road and was exploring the nearby restaurants. Stopped by Mejico for a quick lunch and was really glad I did. This will be my new go to spot. Had the Avocado Torta. Flavors melded together perfectly with just the right amount of spice from the jalapeño. The fresh made thick cut fries were excellent as well with the sweet mustard dipping sauce. Excited to go back again.

    I had read about Mejico on the Chow Bella blog. I decided to give it a try. The menu is fairly small, but the overall the selection was good. There were four of us. We started with Shrimp Ceviche and Chips & Salsa. Both were very good. The Ceviche had just the right amount of citrus bite to it. The salsa had a good amount of heat without being overpowering. For dinner we had: Chili Verde Enchiladas de Rez Backyard Carne Asada Relleno de Pollo All very well done. I did think that the black beans were pretty limited on flavor. They bordered on the bland side. In the end, the food was good. It was the prices that really limit my review here. With tip our bill was ~$125. Just seems expensive for 2 appetizers and 4 entrees. No drinks - just water. N*joy...

    Love this new addition to Central Phoenix! The location is perfect -- very close to work and walking distance from my gym (Yay!). The interior is fresh and clean -- white table cloths even at lunch -- with really nice art on the walls, and they're adding an outdoor patio soon. They do have a lunch menu, with everything around $10-12. I had the Shrimp and Chorizo Burrito, which comes with rice and your choice of pinto or black beans -- I ordered pinto. The food is clean and fresh -- you really feel like you're eating good, fresh, healthy food -- not a bunch of starchy food covered in cheese. The rice and beans are very well-seasoned and not just throw away sides like they are at most Mexican restaurants. The burrito was also very good! The shrimp and chorizo were seasoned very well. My only suggestion is to add some pico de gallo to the plate -- I think the flavor of some fresh pico would really complement the burrito well. All in all, a great visit! They have happy hour from 3-6, with half-priced apps and $1 off their signature margarita. I'll definitely be back!

    The husband and I had a late lunch here today and it was surprisingly lovely. I was a little nervous going in because the place was just about empty. Despite this, the food was clearly fresh and tasted good. I had the carne asada torta (10$) on the the waiter/bartender's recommendation and it was very tasty. The bun was soft, the meat was tender, and it had a charred jalapeno on it (which really made the sandwich). It came with papitos (fries) which were fairly standard. The husband had carne asada tacos (9$) which came with rice and beans. He really liked the beans (I thought it was just ok, but I'm not a big bean person). My one critique is that their chips and salsa costs 4$ and the salsa isn't very spicy at all.... I would hope that for 4$ you might get at least a couple varieties of salsa. Regardless, the food was good, the service was attentive, and the prices were maybe just slightly on the high side (I did see their dinner menu which is significantly more expensive, but seems to be more on the 'fancy' side). I would like to come back here for happy hour, you can't really beat 1$ tacos and half priced apps (like the cheese dip which sounded yummy).

    Delicioso! Awesome experience from the time we walked in the door until we left. We were immediately greeted and escorted to a table. Drinks, appetizers were beyond amazing! Guac and margaritas is what we had. I had the carne asada and the husband had the pollo relleno. Dessert was sopapilla! Mike D. was our waiter and treated us like royalty! It's a small place but great ambiance. I really liked the intimate vibe. The music playing was great too! Highly recommend and will come back!

  • Christine T.

    This place has the best happy hour. $1 street tacos, $5 skinny margaritas, and $2 chips and salsa. Also, during regular hours the margaritas are all fresh squeezed lime juice, great tequila, and fresh ingredients. The owner Obed takes great pride in his new place. I'm excited to have a new place within walking distance to our our house.

    heard of this place from a friend of mine and he was all praises. We decided to try it and he did not steer us wrong. The food was wonder ful! There were five of us so we were able to try a variety of dishes. There was not a bad one in the bunch. From the chips and fresh salsa to the chicken enchiladas, carne asada, green chile verde etc. Forgot to mention the margaritas, Great! We will definitely be back!!

    Went here for dinner, not busy. Ordered the guacamole to start, it is essentially a half an avocado with a raw onion and tomato, topped with cilantro. It was $8 and a very small portion, pretty bland, not blended. My husband had the beef enchiladas, they were dry and bland. Our guest had the shrimp enchiladas and described them as "no big deal." I had the carne asada, it had good flavor, but no better or more special than other carne asada dishes I have had elsewhere. The meals all came with rice which was flat. The pinto beans were the highlight of the meal. The margaritas were good. Service was fine, nothing in particular that stood out. Overall, I think this place is over priced for the small portions and the food is bland. We will not be back.

    This place is great! First timers, had the shrimp relleno and it was delicious! The only complaint I have is that they charge for chips and salsa which are cheap. Other than that it was fabulous! Mejico ---- suck it up for chips and salsa. Try it!!

    Queso is sooooo tasty, along with the house made chips. I also had the Pollo Relleno and it was just like my abuelas! All together it was an amazing experience and would definitely make another visit. Great service, great food and great times!

  • Lauren C.

    Was really looking forward to having a new neighborhood go-to but overall left underwhelmed. There is so much potential in this place which the restaurant does not (yet) live up to. I recently dined with my family; we started off with drinks, two orders of guac and an order of street tacos. Not sure if there was any EtOH in my margarita and the pour of my mom's wine glass was rather insulting; they did accommodate and pour her a bigger glass when asked. The food is okay, nothing to write home about. I had the chicken mole which had a strong peanut butter flavor I wasn't expecting; the rice and beans to accompany your entree are rather bland. Mejico, you're over-priced for the food and for the neighborhood. $22 for a relleno with no more than a few shrimp, beans and rice? Knock a few dollars off your entrees and you'll draw a bigger crowd.

    Love this place! Food is delicious! Service is great! I can't believe this placed has been open for a year and I am just discovering it! I work downtown and they can me in out for my hour lunch break. The Carne Asada Tacos are my favorite!!

  • Katherine G.

    Delicious place ! Must try!! So cute and great service. We had the carne asada and the ceviche. Must start with the homemade chips and salsa, it was worth paying for. Flan was amazing! Will be back!!!

    When Mejico opened I was very happy to have another nice restaurant in the area. My friend and I were able to finally get in a try the food. We went on a week night so it was not very busy. There were two other tables that had people eating. We sat right down and looked at the menus. It took about 10 minutes for our waiter to actually get to us which is a long time considering it was not busy. We placed our order and got our food in a reasonable time. The food was really underwhelming. The flavor was just ok. The price was terribly high for the amount of food and the taste. There was nothing that made this food stand apart from anywhere else. I got the enchiladas and they were around $15. I could have gotten the exact same meal at about 10 other places in the area for about $7. I asked for sour cream because the food wasn't very flavorful. They didn't have any???? The waiter brought out some kind of salad dressing? Not quite sure what it was. As for the service, our waiter was friendly but really did not take very good care of us. We waited for everything. Water, service...everything. All the while we could here him talking up a storm around the corner from the bar. Our entire experience was just not good. It is a real shame because it is very cute on the inside and inviting. I was really hoping for much more. Disappointing.

    The wife and I had the pleasure to dine in at Mejico this evening and we absolutely love it. Even thought there were a few little hick-ups with our order the staff did everything to make us feel at home. We loved the food, from the chips and salsa (very unique) to the main course (the Diabla Shrimps and Rellno Cheese) plus the desert (Flan). I almost forgot to mention the awesome Margaritas Mejico serves...yum :) This is a diamond in the rough, so make sure you visit before the place gets packed. I recommend this place highly and looking forward to our next visit. Thank you Logan for your friendly service.

    A complete turnaround since my first visit when they first opened. Everything was fresh and delicious. We had the guacamole, green and red enchiladas, and black and pinto beans (which tasted just like my moms growing up...yum!). This will definitely be in my rotation of restaurants.

  • Nikki K.

    Love this place! Carne asada is very authentic. The service is superb and the guacamole is always excellent. It is a bit on the pricy side but they have fantastic selections for happy hour which makes it a great choice for Mexican food. Highly recommend!

    Been meaning to try this place out as it looks really bz at happy hour. My friend was taking me to phx and we decided to grab a quick early dinner on the way. We were the first people seated as they opened at 5 as it was a Saturday. They serve lunch and happy hour during the week. They just did a nice renovation and I hear they added some windows and changed the seating in the dining room. It's a nice bright room I. The late afternoon and facing east is not at all hot. Our server Logan was a nice guy. I got the impression that he was a relatively new server. Not because he wasn't great, because he was, it was that he still had that "I actually care and am listening to you, and I am into the food we serve here" phase of most newish floor staff life. Hopefully he is able to hang onto that and not drift into fake-nice-busy-robot that many servers end up. I doubt he will. Likely he will be a graphic designer or chiropractor or maybe rock star. We had chips and salsa which was really good as both are made in house and are unique and flavorful without being too spicy or too salty, a path oft taken in salsas. Their salsa is neither red nor green but both together in that it pleased both the red and green salsa parts of my salsa palate. Bravo! My pal had chicken enchiladas which looked great: smothered in white cheese with a nice sauce served with tasty fluffy seasoned rice and some great looking pinto beans which were served in a small bowl on the side: a nice touch that keeps the plate clean and pretty. He loved every bite! I opted for fish tacos of the day which were talapia. Also very fresh and tasty served with cabbage, fresh lime, cilantro and avocado, and I had the same great rice but opted for the black beans which were perfect and topped lightly with Mexican cheese also on the side in a bowl Yum! I gobbled my food it was that good. The beers we had were served with chilled glasses, another nice touch. I couldn't help but notice that an older lady came in solo and sat next to our table. She was a little confused at the Spanish titles on the dishes but Logan very patiently explained everything to her and ended up deducing that what she really wanted was a beef taco salad, which isn't on the menu. However between Logan and the obviously expert chef, they produced a perfect crispy taco bowl filled with tasty salad with beef. I love it when establishments find a way to say yes and make something happen rather than just say sorry just what you see on the menu. When the place is slammed I could see that not happening, but kudos to Mejico staff for bringing customer service to that next level of awesome! She dug right in and was happily munching when we left. They recently added a lovely patio and once the temp drops back to double digits, I don't doubt they will do a brisk business out there. They have amazing 3-6pm m-f happy hour specials with cheap drinks and tasty priced appies so check that out too. I will definitely make this one of my go to places as it is quite near my place and I know my wife will love it as we like Mexican food and love having it at an actual restaurant. I will be back with her pronto! Ps: When you leave go back out the driveway you came in on as the pass through on the east side is now the new patio.

    To quote my husband, "Best. Shrimp Enchiladas. Ever." The food was amazing, but best of all was the service. Pam really knows how to do it right. Everyone was really great and went over the top to make sure we had a fantastic experience. The atmosphere is romantic and cozy, but there was still enough room for them to serve a table of 12 without batting an eye. Thank you to everyone at Mejico that made our experience so terrific, would recommend them to anyone!

    Ambiance: The owners have spent a ton of money on gutting this place and making it feel authentic, charming, and comfortable. All the tables have tablecloths and candles and the lighting, artwork, whitewashed walls, and tiles make this a cozy Mexican restaurant. Food: This was probably the best chile verde (green chile pork) dish that I have ever had. Instead of being oily like at other places, it was creamy and the pork was very tender. The carne asada was perfectly grilled. Paired with a refreshing and crisp salad and the sides of spanish rice and beans all made for nice stuffed corn tortillas. The appetizer of queso fundido was not what I expected (usually this is a large dish with melted stringy cheese), as it was a small cup of very creamy cheese sprinkle with chorizo. I guess my only suggestion would be to make the portions bigger to replace the small cups of guacamole and salsa that came with the dishes, but I am sure if you asked for more, they would provide it. Instead of huge messy plates of tons of food like you get elsewhere, here you get high quality ingredients presented in a clean and meticulous format. I definitely didn't leave hungry. Service: The 2 gentlemen working were very forthcoming and welcoming. Our server, who came from their Chandler location, was obviously very knowledgeable of the food and was very efficient and friendly. The bartender was nice enough to get us to try new drinks, which were amazing and I would never have thought to order them without him doing this. We also met the chef/owner who is a great guy who loves simple, high quality food from family recipes. The bar area looks like a quaint fun place to hang out during happy hour and it looks like they will have a patio soon. We'll be back for sure!

    Nice Mexican restaurant, fresh and new. Dinners run on the upper end of the price scale, $16 to $20 something per plate, chips and salsa not included or if they are, we were not offered any. Wait staff were friendly and everything looked clean. I tried the shrimp enchiladas ($16) they came with rice and you choice of pinto or black beans; they were full of large shrimp and seasoned perfectly. Mejico is a nice addition to the neighborhood.

  • Mauri G.

    Just had dinner at Mejico and was very pleased by what we had. I had the Ahi Tuna Tacos. They had the perfect balance of spice, freshness and acidity. We would definitely go back. As for the place being pricey, you have to know what you are going for. Binks is across the street and the area is very up and coming. So I'm not surprised by the little higher price tag. Was well worth it. If you have a choice between Mejico and Taco Guild, pick Mejico. We were definitely underwhelmed by Taco Guild. Cheers!

    Simple menu with fresh well planned ingredients. Chips and salsa are amazing. Try one of the margaritas with an entree . Dining room is clean, simple and authentic. Service has been nothing but excellent.

    This was the worst dining experience I've encountered in years! The service was less than memorable. The server had zero emotion or accountability. It started with ordering margaritas. We each ordered a different one but both of us found them so tart they were unconsumable. When the waiter found time to check on us and take our order he was oblivious to the fact our second drinks (after sending back the first ones) were barely touched though at least 15 minutes passed. When the food arrived we were informed they were out of the black beans that we both had ordered. Very, matter of fact. The option we were given was pinto beans, mostly broth. When our waters were finally refilled after sitting empty for some time (on a quiet Tuesday night), they were refilled with soda water. We approached the bartender to get tap water and overheard the waiter indicate he gets those confused but an apology never arrived at our table. An oblivious eye was turned to the fact that the re-made margaritas were left completely full (as they were only marginally better but still unconsumable). The bartender actually removed our plates (after we sent our original drinks back) but never uttered a word about our basically untouched beverages but they certainly had no issue charging us for them. A complete failure all around. It was clear that while other customers were still in the restaurant the bartender was focused on the lovely lady seated at the bar while our waiter must have been focused on the clock (though it was barely past 9 when we left.) Do yourself a favor and eat ANYWHERE else. I've never been so insulted or disappointed in a restaurant as I am in this place. I've also never posted a negative review before but it's been earned here. Enter at your own risk.

    It's near my shop, so I go once in a while for lunch. The shrimp and chorizo burrito is well worth stopping in for.

    Spicy homemade modern Mexican food with really amazing sauces and salsas. The chicken enchiladas were fantastic, but if you want sweet and very spicy try the diablo shrimp.

  • Chris B.

    All in all not a bad place for lunch. The food was good but not excellent in my opinion. I had the Chile Verde burrito and although it was good I think the cilantro and onions overpowered the flavor of the the green chile.

  • Chris W.

    If you enjoy Macayos, Manuels and all of the other typical generic Mexican restaurants that slather their plates with sloppy beans, rice and taco/enchilada then Mejico is not the place for you. Obed, Pam and crew are aiming for something a little more upscale than combination B - and they are successful. The margaritas are fresh and delicious. I love their guacamole Their shrimp ceviche (Mexican shrimp cocktail)is the best I have ever had in a restaurant in Arizona. The Chili Verde is delicious! They have recently added a happy hour MONDAY - FRIDAY from 3 - 6pm with reduced drinks and food and there is an outside patio planned. Stop by, relax and enjoy a great experience.

    The remodel they did to the building is very nice. It is cozy and cute inside. The service was friendly and attentive. My wife got a margarita and it was fantastic, fresh made from scratch. I got the beef enchiladas and they were delicious. My wife got the green chili and it was top notch as well. Overall, the fare was fresher and more interesting than a typical Mexican restaurant. We loved the food but we probably won't be going back much. It was just too expensive for what you get. The margarita was $13. Our bill came to just over $70 for 2 entries and 2 drinks. There are a lot of alternatives in the area that are significantly less. They need a few lower priced (under $10) items on the menu. They charged $4 for chips and salsa. it's too bad they priced the food one tier above what they deliver. It was a great experience otherwise. My review is one star lower as a result.

    This restaurant was unexpectedly good! I had the shrimp torta; it was really tasty. Our waiter was attentive and kind. The salsa was unique and had a great taste. I will definitely be going back.

    We live in the area and have an easy walk to Mejico. I wanted to follow an earlier reviewer's advice about a great happy hour (Christine) but unfortunately we were extremely disappointed. We arrived on a Friday afternoon about 4 PM, on a night when Bink's across the street was closed for a private party. Mejico looked nice, we liked the vibe. But man, this is not a Happy Hour. This is a Sad Hour. What's so special about really, really miniature street tacos or a $3 cheese quesadilla that is so small it is literally only three small bites? Happy Hour is, for us, a time to experience a new place -- to get a feel for the ambiance, the menu items and so forth. For example, go to Happy Hour at Beckett's Table and you get a feel for their menu and their flavors. At Mejico, they take a tiny 6" flour tortilla, put a tiny amount of cheese in it and roll it over. It was a ripoff, and I don't say that lightly because anything you get for $3 has got to be small (so assume this is REALLY small). The special happy hour margarita was just a much smaller version of their real margarita, and so forth. Basically, we'll never go back and the owner lost out on the opportunity to get a new set of regulars. All you have to do is treat happy hour as if it is special -- and give a warm welcome. In this case, the smell of pot wafting into the front of the house from the kitchen and the glazed look on the two waiters faces was a bit much. When one of them asked how we enjoyed the food and we told them what a bad value it was, he simply smiled and walked away. This place is s short-timer, and thats a shame because mid-town is a potentially cool area and the owner spent some money on the inside.

    What a great place to enjoy some upscale Mexican food on the patio! We stopped in when my mother-in-law was in town and arrived right when it opened to be seated immediately on the patio. The place is really cute, the service was good and the food was fantastic. I highly recommend the enchiladas - you won't be disappointed.

  • Tracy T.

    Awesome place! We were headed to Binks but it was packed so we walked across the street to Mejico. Had the chili verde and my hubby had the carne asada. Very delish. I won't lie the salsa is hot but I love it like that. Yum!! We will back!

  • Susan F.

    Went to restaurant for late dinner. This is a small restaurant with outdoor seating as well. Our server Mike was very pleasant, gave us plenty of time to order our drinks and relax. He then came back for our food order. Our food was delivered warm, asked to be reheated and was returned hot. My husband ordered Chile rellano and I ordered enchiladas. Entree was accompanied by rice and beans. Food was tasty and not overpowering Presentation was excellent. I definitely would recommend trying Mejico.

  • Noor B.

    Really nice, small restaurant with a great menu. Chips and salsa are nice too spicy in my opinion but pack a lot of flavor. Enchiladas de rez are delicious - the beef is so tender and the sauce is wonderful. Backyard carne asada steak is super tender - cooked a perfect medium rare, and again, so flavorful and delicious. The rice and beans are all done nicely and compliment the main food items wonderfully. Happy hour menu is a bit different, so I am looking forward to going back and giving it a try.

    Difficult for me to convey a concise review on this place. This little Mexican establishment kinda feels stuck between wanting to be a neighborhood hangout and being a fine dining establishment. The menu has a decent variety of items, and yet is somewhat simple. The bar is well stocked, or at least feels like it is. I had a lot of mixed feelings about the place from the time I came in all the way to my departure. Overall I had good feelings when all was said and done, and yet something about this place felt, well, conflicted. Located in what used to be Linda's Diner, Mejico now occupies this small space near 24th St and Osborn (just west of Mr. Submarine). With famed chef Kevin Binkley now having one of his own restaurants in the neighborhood, it would seem the creators of Mejico decided an upscale Mexican food spot was the next step in the evolution of this neighborhood. When you walk inside, you first pass the small bar area up front en route to the dining area. There's a surprisingly ample amount of seating both inside and on the patio out back. It was a super windy evening so my party and I decided to dine inside this go around. The place was pretty quiet on a Monday so our server was super quick and attentive to our needs all evening. We were first provided complimentary chips and guacamole. The chips themselves were excellent actually. Thick cut and crunchy with just the right amount of salt and the guacamole was topped with queso fresco. A great little snack for everyone to share to start with. I also got a Modelo Especial beer to drink. There's 8 main entrees to choose from on the menu (plus some fish and salad options). Pretty much everything on the menu I've had somewhere in my Mexican food adventures at least once (Rellenos, Enchiladas, Pork Chile Verde, etc.), so it took me awhile to settle on one. One item that caught my attention this go around was the Mole de Pollo. Mole is a super complicated dish to make no matter what version you're going for. I've only had it twice in my life (including a very memorable version at Barrio Cafe in Phoenix), but I remember enjoying the complexity of the sauce. So I went with that. It came with rice and fresh hot tortillas and a small side bowl of black beans with queso fresco. It was pretty decent. I wouldn't say its as good as the mole I had at Barrio, but if you like a mole with a more savory emphasis on the chocolate notes, you'll like this version. Wrapping some of the mole with rice and beans in the tortilla was a very delicious combo. The portion wasn't too large so I had enough room for dessert afterwards. For dessert we shared a flan. Nothing wrong here as the flan was super creamy and the syrup and chocolate sauce was just right. So now the Debbie Downer part. The prices. As Yelpers have quite accurately pointed out, this place ain't cheap. The mole dish I got was $18. I sort of get that mole is complicated to make so that could be somewhat understood. But two others in my party got enchiladas for $15 that looked more like taquitos. A third member got their Carne Asada dish. While that dish had a decent amount of meat, I'm not sure any of us felt it was work the $20 price tag. The flan was $6 which was probably fair. All in all, the food is here is quite good (very good in certain spots). The atmosphere, the aesthetics, and the staff are also excellent. The prices as they relate to the portions and quality? That's questionable. A chef as famous as Kevin Binkley can probably walk into this neighborhood and charge whatever he wants, but I'm not sure an unknown upstart could take such liberties. If you're coming here during happy hour when the prices are cheaper, you'll be fine. But otherwise most probably wouldn't be able to afford dining here regularly as it stands right now. That said, I think owner Obed De La Cruz has a place with a lot of potential here. If they can get the price point figured out, they'll have a winner. After all, good food is something we want to be able to have regularly, not just for special occasions.

    Came here for lunch and ordered the tostada with carne asada instead of chile verde. It was good! The meat was tender and full of flavor...it was layered with black beans, meat and had lettuce, red onions and tomato on top, it also came with a side of chipotle cream sauce. I would have liked some avocado and maybe Mexican cream but I think I'll ask next time. My friends ordered the tacos and a torta, there weren't any complaints and we all finished every bite! The waiter was very friendly he even asked if we wanted waters for the road since it was extremely hot! Such a nice touch. Overall I was happy, it can be a bit pricey (the tostada didn't come with any sides) but for the quality I think it's worth it. I am going to check them out on a night out or weekend, the margaritas looked amazing and I heard him say everything was fresh.

    Great HH place! Chris the bartender/waiter welcomed us into this interesting lil nook that's nestled in the southern part of the biltmore/arcadia district. Unfortunately there are no beers on tap, only bottles, BUT...there is a plethora of awesome Mexican beers available for $3 during HH (3-6pm, M-F). There's also a variety of food choices on the HH menu. We absolutely loooooved the ceviche tostadas!! We'll mos def be back for HH and possibly for dinner or lunch one day soon.

    Inventive, delicious food. Not your run of the mill Mexican Cantinas. Beautiful garden patio. I ordered green chile tostada . Delicious! Not too spicy for me, perfectly flavored. Go out of your way to find this nearly hidden gem. You won't regret it.

    Mejico has a good happy hour. I especially enjoyed the $1 carne asada taco and easy going atmosphere. Next time I will try an entree.

    This place is so cute! Sucks it's summer because their outside patio is adorable. Ordered cheese enchiladas with verde sauce and they were some of the best I've had...according to my taste buds. The rice and beans were super good too, which is rare. Guac is good, nothing too special to be honest...hopefully they work on that. My honey had the fish tacos which were delicious as well! Drinks were yummy and big, so totally worth the price. I think this spot is a gem if your looking for great, not greasy, Mexican food.

    Lunch was mahi mahi tacos with creamy pinto beans. There was just enough spice and onion in the taco but didn't hide the fish. the taco was topped with avocado and cilantro. I'll have to come back for the happy hour (3-6 pm). Upscale Mexican vibe with a cool factor.

    We don't find ourselves in the likes of Central Phoenix very often, so when we ended up in the area around dinner time, the obvious question was where we should eat that we've been thinking about trying. Mejico was fresh on the brain after a recent recommendation so off we went! Outside is unassuming, with a small (kinda awkward) parking lot and great view of a pawn shop. Inside looks like another world.. it's classy, subtly Mexican-inspired and intimate. We were greeted with a friendly welcome and asked to seat ourselves wherever we were comfortable. Unfortunately, we had just missed happy hour (ends at 6!) which was a bummer, because there look like there are good deals then. The dinner menu is a little pricier than I'm used to for Mexican food, but it was also high quality. The chips and salsa for the table were surprisingly good. After reading that Jennifer O found the salsa too mild, I took a big bite. Well people, it is not mild. I may be a spice-wimp, but it had some kick. Smaller bites from there on out. The chips were fresh, salty and thicker than usual. I'm accustomed to complimentary chips and salsa before the entrees, but I'm glad we tried this appetizer anyway. A split order of the enchiladas (the server recommended one chicken, one beef, rather than being faced with the decision between the two) sufficed for two people. The pinto beans were a lot more flavorful than the black, which is another choice offered. Service was attentive, and our waiter showed us the happy hour and lunch menus so we could get a feel for them. The prices were almost half, and some of the menu items looked really good. I'd love to return for lunch some time, or for happy hour to try one of their house-made (actually made in house, from fresh ingredients each time) margaritas. Until then!

    What a lovely surprise! I had the Carne Asada and my husband had a shrimp and chorizo burrito. After our first visit we talked about their food for weeks, just couldn't get it out of our minds. On our return visit I was worried that I might have built it up so much in my mind that the reality couldn't compare. Happily for me it did. It was even better than I remembered!

    Here's the thing, when Mejico is on, they do a very good job with their food. I've had multiple experiences now where we have shown up and they have run out of particular menu items. Their food is good, but nothing that I haven't had elsewhere. Happy hour isn't that bad, but again they've run out of happy hour items before, and we got there close to the start. If they were busy, I'd imagine this would be a good thing. Since they are not usually busy, a friend in the food industry says this doesn't bode well for a restaurant, since it may mean they are unable to buy their ingredients. I want to love Mejico, it is in my neighborhood, and it gives me an option beyond Binks. Reduce your price point, or increase the portions for some of your items, and you might draw more people in. This is Phoenix, and good Mexican food is everywhere, so if you're going to charge a lot of money for Mexican dishes they should be excellent (and available)...

    First time here and I ordered a carne asada torta from the lunch menu.. The service here was so great, but the carne asada was just a sad mess. I spit out the majority as it was full of fat and rough parts. I ended up eating the bolillo, avocado and papas for $10 Carne asada should be delicious if it's a headliner on the menu!

  • Mykle F.

    Loved the food here. We got the chips and salsa to start. The chips were definitely made in house, and were great. The salsa was an unexpected surprise, as it really had a nice zing to it. I've had the Caldo Azteza (tortilla soup) at El Zocalo in Chandler (same family), so I thought I would try it here. It was just as good, and obviously the same recipe. The Caldo was really a meal of it's own, but I also ordered the Green Chili Pork, which was phenomenal. The pieces of pork were so tender, and the chili was really flavorful but not overly spicy. The rice was delicious and the tortilla was perfect to pick up the pieces of pork. The server, Cody, was really great too. He checked in on us regularly and was very attentive. Couldn't give it five stars, as I did find it a bit pricy, but I will definitely be back.

    I absolutely love the food, the vibe, the service and the location. I went with a party of six and every single person had an excellent experience. There were smiles all around, and full happy bellies. The flan is the best flan I have ever had. The only thing I can say is that it's a bit pricey for what it is, that brings it down one star.

    Wow, we arrived after a two day road trip to Phoenix only to find this little gem right around the corner! Happy hour is M-F from 4-6 and is well worth it! The margaritas are really what sold me on this place. Super simple, lime juice, tequila, agave nectar, salt. We shared some of the small plates from the happy hour specials and everything was delicious. The queso fundido definitely had a kick to it which was great. The bartender, Chris, was super friendly and very attentive. All around good place, can't wait to go back!

    Mejico is phenomenal and deserving of all the praise I can heap upon it. The service was absolutely top-notch. The margaritas aren't the overly sweet swill you're accustomed to - the quality of the ingredients in their cocktails speak for themselves. The dinner menu contains a lot of the finer ingredients that really distinguish this from standard Mexican fare, namely cotija cheese and some of the best green chile sauce I've had in Arizona.

    I put off this review until they could get the kinks worked out...and thankfully, they have! The first time we went it was right after they opened. We weren't expecting much because of that...but what we got was even worse. I'm not going to go into details...bad food and bad/creepy service and waaaay over-priced. Growing pains. But the owners were awesome. We went back again and I ordered the same thing I did the first time (ahi tacos). Both times, sadly, the ahi was over-cooked. We vowed never to return. Until we did. Third try's a charm. We ordered something completely different...salad and soup. Much better. The soup came in a huge bowl and it was so fresh and tasty. The salad was big as well and equally as yummy. And, even better, they had lowered some of their prices. It seemed like it was over-priced for the 'hood and now is about par with Bink's across the street. I'm a fan...we'll be back for sure to try some other dishes.

    Awesome place, great Margaritas, most places don't know how to make them. They have an awesome happy hour from 3-6. The food was great. My wife got the shrimp rilleno and it was awesome. I got the carne asada steak. I liked the beans and rice as well. The flavor is more true to authentic Mexican food. Definitely will be coming back.

    I wish there was a 6th star.... Went here for lunch with some buddies on a Thursday afternoon and was bummed that the Shrimp and chili Relleno was only on the dinner menu.

    Great atmosphere... Service was eh and food was just ok. Ordered the enchiladas de res and were served warm but not hot and very light on the sauce which made it dry. Thought it was overpriced for the amount of food. The Cadillac Margarita was was very good.

    I had the steak which was great, my wife had the chile relleno. The relleno was also good but a little heavy on the cheese and the cheese should've been melted more. Definitely going back.

    I went Thursday around noon to celebrate a birthday lunch with a group of 7 other coworkers and we all thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The service was excellent and everybody really enjoyed their food. Typically, I shy away from Mexican restaurants because I am a self-proclaimed Mexican top-chef and I can cook better Mexican food than most restaurants. This is not one of those places. I called ahead of time to let the restaurant know we would have a large party and we arrived to a table arrangement with salsa and totopos already set up. The salsa was very tasty and the chips are definitely made in-house. I ordered the carne asada torta which comes with a side of fries or "papitas" and I'm pretty sure I cleared my plate. The ambiance has very authentic Mexican hacienda charm! Definitely a hidden gem in central Phoenix. I didn't order an alcoholic beverage, but based on what I can see in the bar, they are stocked with quality tequila. I'm also a self-proclaimed tequila snob, so I was pleased to see the variety. Now I need to experience their Happy Hour!

    Loved our dinner at Mejico! We had exceptional service from Cody and the food and drinks were delicious. Another review mentioned the quality ingredients behind their drinks - that's spot-on! No pre mixes here. Fresh lime juice and fine tequila make them a lovely accompaniment to your meal. I had the Ahi Tuna tacos - delicious! Thick chunks of Ahi tuna with fresh avocado and red onion. Quality ingredients to be sure. Can you get heartier plates elsewhere? I'm sure you can but for atmosphere, service and quality food/drinks - Mejico is hard to beat and that's saying something in an ocean of Mexican food possibilities.

    Terrific neighborhood spot, lovingly designed space and menu with charming outside patio. The chips are exactly like you'd find in Mexico, not a commercial batch, and the salsa is bursting with flavor. Well worth the $4 charge to eat some prepared in house. Others have mentioned prices, which do seen a bit high in a town where middle-of-the-road Mexican food is plentiful. However, the limited menu offers little gems and, my personal favorite, the jalapeño margarita, is the best I've experienced since The Cantina in Cave Creek closed. While the service is a tad detached (let's face it, it IS nice to think the server is pleased you're there to drop $50 a couple), it's refreshing not to have to deflect 'Hi, I'm Elliot, and I'll be taking care of you tonight!" We were the only table last Thursday night. Early dinner, I confess, but hope this independent restaurant gains a well-deserved following. A gem.

  • Ed D.

    We had a really good meal here. I had the Shrimp Rellenos and my husband had the chicken enchiladas. Both were very good. The actual restaurant was really quaint and inviting. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was for two reasons. First, the guacamole appetizer was tiny....I mean really small. It could easily be fixed by upsizing to a small bowl. Second, the prices were a tad high. I would pay $13-$17 for items...but pushing $23 is a bit high. The saving grace on price would be happy hour...$1 street tacos and $3 cheese quesadillas are a steal. Overall, great food..but pricey.

  • Tatiana R.

    Came here for lunch and ordered the tostada with carne asada instead of chile verde. It was good! The meat was tender and full of flavor...it was layered with black beans, meat and had lettuce, red onions and tomato on top, it also came with a side of chipotle cream sauce. I would have liked some avocado and maybe Mexican cream but I think I'll ask next time. My friends ordered the tacos and a torta, there weren't any complaints and we all finished every bite! The waiter was very friendly he even asked if we wanted waters for the road since it was extremely hot! Such a nice touch. Overall I was happy, it can be a bit pricey (the tostada didn't come with any sides) but for the quality I think it's worth it. I am going to check them out on a night out or weekend, the margaritas looked amazing and I heard him say everything was fresh.

    Great HH place! Chris the bartender/waiter welcomed us into this interesting lil nook that's nestled in the southern part of the biltmore/arcadia district. Unfortunately there are no beers on tap, only bottles, BUT...there is a plethora of awesome Mexican beers available for $3 during HH (3-6pm, M-F). There's also a variety of food choices on the HH menu. We absolutely loooooved the ceviche tostadas!! We'll mos def be back for HH and possibly for dinner or lunch one day soon.

    I had read about Mejico on the Chow Bella blog. I decided to give it a try. The menu is fairly small, but the overall the selection was good. There were four of us. We started with Shrimp Ceviche and Chips & Salsa. Both were very good. The Ceviche had just the right amount of citrus bite to it. The salsa had a good amount of heat without being overpowering. For dinner we had: Chili Verde Enchiladas de Rez Backyard Carne Asada Relleno de Pollo All very well done. I did think that the black beans were pretty limited on flavor. They bordered on the bland side. In the end, the food was good. It was the prices that really limit my review here. With tip our bill was ~$125. Just seems expensive for 2 appetizers and 4 entrees. No drinks - just water. N*joy...

    Went to restaurant for late dinner. This is a small restaurant with outdoor seating as well. Our server Mike was very pleasant, gave us plenty of time to order our drinks and relax. He then came back for our food order. Our food was delivered warm, asked to be reheated and was returned hot. My husband ordered Chile rellano and I ordered enchiladas. Entree was accompanied by rice and beans. Food was tasty and not overpowering Presentation was excellent. I definitely would recommend trying Mejico.

  • Noor B.

    Really nice, small restaurant with a great menu. Chips and salsa are nice too spicy in my opinion but pack a lot of flavor. Enchiladas de rez are delicious - the beef is so tender and the sauce is wonderful. Backyard carne asada steak is super tender - cooked a perfect medium rare, and again, so flavorful and delicious. The rice and beans are all done nicely and compliment the main food items wonderfully. Happy hour menu is a bit different, so I am looking forward to going back and giving it a try.

    Difficult for me to convey a concise review on this place. This little Mexican establishment kinda feels stuck between wanting to be a neighborhood hangout and being a fine dining establishment. The menu has a decent variety of items, and yet is somewhat simple. The bar is well stocked, or at least feels like it is. I had a lot of mixed feelings about the place from the time I came in all the way to my departure. Overall I had good feelings when all was said and done, and yet something about this place felt, well, conflicted. Located in what used to be Linda's Diner, Mejico now occupies this small space near 24th St and Osborn (just west of Mr. Submarine). With famed chef Kevin Binkley now having one of his own restaurants in the neighborhood, it would seem the creators of Mejico decided an upscale Mexican food spot was the next step in the evolution of this neighborhood. When you walk inside, you first pass the small bar area up front en route to the dining area. There's a surprisingly ample amount of seating both inside and on the patio out back. It was a super windy evening so my party and I decided to dine inside this go around. The place was pretty quiet on a Monday so our server was super quick and attentive to our needs all evening. We were first provided complimentary chips and guacamole. The chips themselves were excellent actually. Thick cut and crunchy with just the right amount of salt and the guacamole was topped with queso fresco. A great little snack for everyone to share to start with. I also got a Modelo Especial beer to drink. There's 8 main entrees to choose from on the menu (plus some fish and salad options). Pretty much everything on the menu I've had somewhere in my Mexican food adventures at least once (Rellenos, Enchiladas, Pork Chile Verde, etc.), so it took me awhile to settle on one. One item that caught my attention this go around was the Mole de Pollo. Mole is a super complicated dish to make no matter what version you're going for. I've only had it twice in my life (including a very memorable version at Barrio Cafe in Phoenix), but I remember enjoying the complexity of the sauce. So I went with that. It came with rice and fresh hot tortillas and a small side bowl of black beans with queso fresco. It was pretty decent. I wouldn't say its as good as the mole I had at Barrio, but if you like a mole with a more savory emphasis on the chocolate notes, you'll like this version. Wrapping some of the mole with rice and beans in the tortilla was a very delicious combo. The portion wasn't too large so I had enough room for dessert afterwards. For dessert we shared a flan. Nothing wrong here as the flan was super creamy and the syrup and chocolate sauce was just right. So now the Debbie Downer part. The prices. As Yelpers have quite accurately pointed out, this place ain't cheap. The mole dish I got was $18. I sort of get that mole is complicated to make so that could be somewhat understood. But two others in my party got enchiladas for $15 that looked more like taquitos. A third member got their Carne Asada dish. While that dish had a decent amount of meat, I'm not sure any of us felt it was work the $20 price tag. The flan was $6 which was probably fair. All in all, the food is here is quite good (very good in certain spots). The atmosphere, the aesthetics, and the staff are also excellent. The prices as they relate to the portions and quality? That's questionable. A chef as famous as Kevin Binkley can probably walk into this neighborhood and charge whatever he wants, but I'm not sure an unknown upstart could take such liberties. If you're coming here during happy hour when the prices are cheaper, you'll be fine. But otherwise most probably wouldn't be able to afford dining here regularly as it stands right now. That said, I think owner Obed De La Cruz has a place with a lot of potential here. If they can get the price point figured out, they'll have a winner. After all, good food is something we want to be able to have regularly, not just for special occasions.

    What a great place to enjoy some upscale Mexican food on the patio! We stopped in when my mother-in-law was in town and arrived right when it opened to be seated immediately on the patio. The place is really cute, the service was good and the food was fantastic. I highly recommend the enchiladas - you won't be disappointed.

    Awesome place! We were headed to Binks but it was packed so we walked across the street to Mejico. Had the chili verde and my hubby had the carne asada. Very delish. I won't lie the salsa is hot but I love it like that. Yum!! We will back!

    I wish there was a 6th star.... Went here for lunch with some buddies on a Thursday afternoon and was bummed that the Shrimp and chili Relleno was only on the dinner menu. The bartender heard me talking about how amazing it was and volunteered the have the cooks whip it up special! ABSOLUTELY my favorite local Mexican dish and restaurant.

    I planned on eating here one night while on a business trip but when I was charged $6 for a bottle of Dos XX, I bailed. I can see paying this for a good draft beer but a bottle of Dos XX? I got the impression that the place just too pricy after paying for the beer and looking at the menu. I ended up walking down the street and had a good meal somewhere else for a reasonable price.

    Went here about a week ago during my lunch break. There were, really not exaggerating either, 6 people on the whole place. We ordered burritos and literally had to get up towards the kitchen and ask about our food. I don't get how this was so slow. We took it to go and was given the orders wrong as well. They should have given us a discount or if anything free. They were not even apologetic about anything.

    Great atmosphere... Service was eh and food was just ok. Ordered the enchiladas de res and were served warm but not hot and very light on the sauce which made it dry. Thought it was overpriced for the amount of food. The Cadillac Margarita was was very good.

    I had the steak which was great, my wife had the chile relleno. The relleno was also good but a little heavy on the cheese and the cheese should've been melted more. Definitely going back.

    I went Thursday around noon to celebrate a birthday lunch with a group of 7 other coworkers and we all thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The service was excellent and everybody really enjoyed their food. Typically, I shy away from Mexican restaurants because I am a self-proclaimed Mexican top-chef and I can cook better Mexican food than most restaurants. This is not one of those places. I called ahead of time to let the restaurant know we would have a large party and we arrived to a table arrangement with salsa and totopos already set up. The salsa was very tasty and the chips are definitely made in-house. I ordered the carne asada torta which comes with a side of fries or "papitas" and I'm pretty sure I cleared my plate. The ambiance has very authentic Mexican hacienda charm! Definitely a hidden gem in central Phoenix. I didn't order an alcoholic beverage, but based on what I can see in the bar, they are stocked with quality tequila. I'm also a self-proclaimed tequila snob, so I was pleased to see the variety. Now I need to experience their Happy Hour!

    Loved our dinner at Mejico! We had exceptional service from Cody and the food and drinks were delicious. Another review mentioned the quality ingredients behind their drinks - that's spot-on! No pre mixes here. Fresh lime juice and fine tequila make them a lovely accompaniment to your meal. I had the Ahi Tuna tacos - delicious! Thick chunks of Ahi tuna with fresh avocado and red onion. Quality ingredients to be sure. Can you get heartier plates elsewhere? I'm sure you can but for atmosphere, service and quality food/drinks - Mejico is hard to beat and that's saying something in an ocean of Mexican food possibilities.

    Terrific neighborhood spot, lovingly designed space and menu with charming outside patio. The chips are exactly like you'd find in Mexico, not a commercial batch, and the salsa is bursting with flavor. Well worth the $4 charge to eat some prepared in house. Others have mentioned prices, which do seen a bit high in a town where middle-of-the-road Mexican food is plentiful. However, the limited menu offers little gems and, my personal favorite, the jalapeño margarita, is the best I've experienced since The Cantina in Cave Creek closed. While the service is a tad detached (let's face it, it IS nice to think the server is pleased you're there to drop $50 a couple), it's refreshing not to have to deflect 'Hi, I'm Elliot, and I'll be taking care of you tonight!" We were the only table last Thursday night. Early dinner, I confess, but hope this independent restaurant gains a well-deserved following. A gem.

    Tonight I had the carne Asada plate and the food is delicious. I have no problem with the service and the food. However I do feel that you can get exact quality elsewhere for much less. The food is quite pricy considering what is served. All in all great experience but again overpriced.

  • Cody H.

    I really liked this place. The atmosphere is quaint and cute. The Margs are amazing. A little pricey but worth it. Delicious. The Food was good. The meat was perfect, and the red sauce was flavorful and had a small hint of heat. The salsa was perfection. I would recommend this place for date night or small group gatherings.

    Just moved in down the road and was exploring the nearby restaurants. Stopped by Mejico for a quick lunch and was really glad I did. This will be my new go to spot. Had the Avocado Torta. Flavors melded together perfectly with just the right amount of spice from the jalapeño. The fresh made thick cut fries were excellent as well with the sweet mustard dipping sauce. Excited to go back again.

    Love this new addition to Central Phoenix! The location is perfect -- very close to work and walking distance from my gym (Yay!). The interior is fresh and clean -- white table cloths even at lunch -- with really nice art on the walls, and they're adding an outdoor patio soon. They do have a lunch menu, with everything around $10-12. I had the Shrimp and Chorizo Burrito, which comes with rice and your choice of pinto or black beans -- I ordered pinto. The food is clean and fresh -- you really feel like you're eating good, fresh, healthy food -- not a bunch of starchy food covered in cheese. The rice and beans are very well-seasoned and not just throw away sides like they are at most Mexican restaurants. The burrito was also very good! The shrimp and chorizo were seasoned very well. My only suggestion is to add some pico de gallo to the plate -- I think the flavor of some fresh pico would really complement the burrito well. All in all, a great visit! They have happy hour from 3-6, with half-priced apps and $1 off their signature margarita. I'll definitely be back!

    The husband and I had a late lunch here today and it was surprisingly lovely. I was a little nervous going in because the place was just about empty. Despite this, the food was clearly fresh and tasted good. I had the carne asada torta (10$) on the the waiter/bartender's recommendation and it was very tasty. The bun was soft, the meat was tender, and it had a charred jalapeno on it (which really made the sandwich). It came with papitos (fries) which were fairly standard. The husband had carne asada tacos (9$) which came with rice and beans. He really liked the beans (I thought it was just ok, but I'm not a big bean person). My one critique is that their chips and salsa costs 4$ and the salsa isn't very spicy at all.... I would hope that for 4$ you might get at least a couple varieties of salsa. Regardless, the food was good, the service was attentive, and the prices were maybe just slightly on the high side (I did see their dinner menu which is significantly more expensive, but seems to be more on the 'fancy' side). I would like to come back here for happy hour, you can't really beat 1$ tacos and half priced apps (like the cheese dip which sounded yummy).

    Delicioso! Awesome experience from the time we walked in the door until we left. We were immediately greeted and escorted to a table. Drinks, appetizers were beyond amazing! Guac and margaritas is what we had. I had the carne asada and the husband had the pollo relleno. Dessert was sopapilla! Mike D. was our waiter and treated us like royalty! It's a small place but great ambiance. I really liked the intimate vibe. The music playing was great too! Highly recommend and will come back!

  • Christine T.

    This place has the best happy hour. $1 street tacos, $5 skinny margaritas, and $2 chips and salsa. Also, during regular hours the margaritas are all fresh squeezed lime juice, great tequila, and fresh ingredients. The owner Obed takes great pride in his new place. I'm excited to have a new place within walking distance to our our house.

  • Fred F.

    heard of this place from a friend of mine and he was all praises. We decided to try it and he did not steer us wrong. The food was wonder ful! There were five of us so we were able to try a variety of dishes. There was not a bad one in the bunch. From the chips and fresh salsa to the chicken enchiladas, carne asada, green chile verde etc. Forgot to mention the margaritas, Great! We will definitely be back!!

  • Camille C.

    Went here for dinner, not busy. Ordered the guacamole to start, it is essentially a half an avocado with a raw onion and tomato, topped with cilantro. It was $8 and a very small portion, pretty bland, not blended. My husband had the beef enchiladas, they were dry and bland. Our guest had the shrimp enchiladas and described them as "no big deal." I had the carne asada, it had good flavor, but no better or more special than other carne asada dishes I have had elsewhere. The meals all came with rice which was flat. The pinto beans were the highlight of the meal. The margaritas were good. Service was fine, nothing in particular that stood out. Overall, I think this place is over priced for the small portions and the food is bland. We will not be back.

    This place is great! First timers, had the shrimp relleno and it was delicious! The only complaint I have is that they charge for chips and salsa which are cheap. Other than that it was fabulous! Mejico ---- suck it up for chips and salsa. Try it!!

  • Lauren C.

    Was really looking forward to having a new neighborhood go-to but overall left underwhelmed. There is so much potential in this place which the restaurant does not (yet) live up to. I recently dined with my family; we started off with drinks, two orders of guac and an order of street tacos. Not sure if there was any EtOH in my margarita and the pour of my mom's wine glass was rather insulting; they did accommodate and pour her a bigger glass when asked. The food is okay, nothing to write home about. I had the chicken mole which had a strong peanut butter flavor I wasn't expecting; the rice and beans to accompany your entree are rather bland. Mejico, you're over-priced for the food and for the neighborhood. $22 for a relleno with no more than a few shrimp, beans and rice? Knock a few dollars off your entrees and you'll draw a bigger crowd.

    Been meaning to try this place out as it looks really bz at happy hour. My friend was taking me to phx and we decided to grab a quick early dinner on the way. We were the first people seated as they opened at 5 as it was a Saturday. They serve lunch and happy hour during the week. They just did a nice renovation and I hear they added some windows and changed the seating in the dining room. It's a nice bright room I. The late afternoon and facing east is not at all hot. Our server Logan was a nice guy. I got the impression that he was a relatively new server. Not because he wasn't great, because he was, it was that he still had that "I actually care and am listening to you, and I am into the food we serve here" phase of most newish floor staff life. Hopefully he is able to hang onto that and not drift into fake-nice-busy-robot that many servers end up. I doubt he will. Likely he will be a graphic designer or chiropractor or maybe rock star. We had chips and salsa which was really good as both are made in house and are unique and flavorful without being too spicy or too salty, a path oft taken in salsas. Their salsa is neither red nor green but both together in that it pleased both the red and green salsa parts of my salsa palate. Bravo! My pal had chicken enchiladas which looked great: smothered in white cheese with a nice sauce served with tasty fluffy seasoned rice and some great looking pinto beans which were served in a small bowl on the side: a nice touch that keeps the plate clean and pretty. He loved every bite! I opted for fish tacos of the day which were talapia. Also very fresh and tasty served with cabbage, fresh lime, cilantro and avocado, and I had the same great rice but opted for the black beans which were perfect and topped lightly with Mexican cheese also on the side in a bowl Yum! I gobbled my food it was that good. The beers we had were served with chilled glasses, another nice touch. I couldn't help but notice that an older lady came in solo and sat next to our table. She was a little confused at the Spanish titles on the dishes but Logan very patiently explained everything to her and ended up deducing that what she really wanted was a beef taco salad, which isn't on the menu. However between Logan and the obviously expert chef, they produced a perfect crispy taco bowl filled with tasty salad with beef. I love it when establishments find a way to say yes and make something happen rather than just say sorry just what you see on the menu. When the place is slammed I could see that not happening, but kudos to Mejico staff for bringing customer service to that next level of awesome! She dug right in and was happily munching when we left. They recently added a lovely patio and once the temp drops back to double digits, I don't doubt they will do a brisk business out there. They have amazing 3-6pm m-f happy hour specials with cheap drinks and tasty priced appies so check that out too. I will definitely make this one of my go to places as it is quite near my place and I know my wife will love it as we like Mexican food and love having it at an actual restaurant. I will be back with her pronto! Ps: When you leave go back out the driveway you came in on as the pass through on the east side is now the new patio.

  • Ed D.

    We had a really good meal here. I had the Shrimp Rellenos and my husband had the chicken enchiladas. Both were very good. The actual restaurant was really quaint and inviting. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was for two reasons. First, the guacamole appetizer was tiny....I mean really small. It could easily be fixed by upsizing to a small bowl. Second, the prices were a tad high. I would pay $13-$17 for items...but pushing $23 is a bit high. The saving grace on price would be happy hour...$1 street tacos and $3 cheese quesadillas are a steal. Overall, great food..but pricey.

    When Mejico opened I was very happy to have another nice restaurant in the area. My friend and I were able to finally get in a try the food. We went on a week night so it was not very busy. There were two other tables that had people eating. We sat right down and looked at the menus. It took about 10 minutes for our waiter to actually get to us which is a long time considering it was not busy. We placed our order and got our food in a reasonable time. The food was really underwhelming. The flavor was just ok. The price was terribly high for the amount of food and the taste. There was nothing that made this food stand apart from anywhere else. I got the enchiladas and they were around $15. I could have gotten the exact same meal at about 10 other places in the area for about $7. I asked for sour cream because the food wasn't very flavorful. They didn't have any???? The waiter brought out some kind of salad dressing? Not quite sure what it was. As for the service, our waiter was friendly but really did not take very good care of us. We waited for everything. Water, service...everything. All the while we could here him talking up a storm around the corner from the bar. Our entire experience was just not good. It is a real shame because it is very cute on the inside and inviting. I was really hoping for much more. Disappointing.

    The wife and I had the pleasure to dine in at Mejico this evening and we absolutely love it. Even thought there were a few little hick-ups with our order the staff did everything to make us feel at home. We loved the food, from the chips and salsa (very unique) to the main course (the Diabla Shrimps and Rellno Cheese) plus the desert (Flan). I almost forgot to mention the awesome Margaritas Mejico serves...yum :) This is a diamond in the rough, so make sure you visit before the place gets packed. I recommend this place highly and looking forward to our next visit. Thank you Logan for your friendly service.

    A complete turnaround since my first visit when they first opened. Everything was fresh and delicious. We had the guacamole, green and red enchiladas, and black and pinto beans (which tasted just like my moms growing up...yum!). This will definitely be in my rotation of restaurants.

  • Heather B.

    To quote my husband, "Best. Shrimp Enchiladas. Ever." The food was amazing, but best of all was the service. Pam really knows how to do it right. Everyone was really great and went over the top to make sure we had a fantastic experience. The atmosphere is romantic and cozy, but there was still enough room for them to serve a table of 12 without batting an eye. Thank you to everyone at Mejico that made our experience so terrific, would recommend them to anyone!

  • Brett B.

    Ambiance: The owners have spent a ton of money on gutting this place and making it feel authentic, charming, and comfortable. All the tables have tablecloths and candles and the lighting, artwork, whitewashed walls, and tiles make this a cozy Mexican restaurant. Food: This was probably the best chile verde (green chile pork) dish that I have ever had. Instead of being oily like at other places, it was creamy and the pork was very tender. The carne asada was perfectly grilled. Paired with a refreshing and crisp salad and the sides of spanish rice and beans all made for nice stuffed corn tortillas. The appetizer of queso fundido was not what I expected (usually this is a large dish with melted stringy cheese), as it was a small cup of very creamy cheese sprinkle with chorizo. I guess my only suggestion would be to make the portions bigger to replace the small cups of guacamole and salsa that came with the dishes, but I am sure if you asked for more, they would provide it. Instead of huge messy plates of tons of food like you get elsewhere, here you get high quality ingredients presented in a clean and meticulous format. I definitely didn't leave hungry. Service: The 2 gentlemen working were very forthcoming and welcoming. Our server, who came from their Chandler location, was obviously very knowledgeable of the food and was very efficient and friendly. The bartender was nice enough to get us to try new drinks, which were amazing and I would never have thought to order them without him doing this. We also met the chef/owner who is a great guy who loves simple, high quality food from family recipes. The bar area looks like a quaint fun place to hang out during happy hour and it looks like they will have a patio soon. We'll be back for sure!

    Nice Mexican restaurant, fresh and new. Dinners run on the upper end of the price scale, $16 to $20 something per plate, chips and salsa not included or if they are, we were not offered any. Wait staff were friendly and everything looked clean. I tried the shrimp enchiladas ($16) they came with rice and you choice of pinto or black beans; they were full of large shrimp and seasoned perfectly. Mejico is a nice addition to the neighborhood.

  • Mauri G.

    Just had dinner at Mejico and was very pleased by what we had. I had the Ahi Tuna Tacos. They had the perfect balance of spice, freshness and acidity. We would definitely go back. As for the place being pricey, you have to know what you are going for. Binks is across the street and the area is very up and coming. So I'm not surprised by the little higher price tag. Was well worth it. If you have a choice between Mejico and Taco Guild, pick Mejico. We were definitely underwhelmed by Taco Guild. Cheers!

  • Doug B.

    This was the worst dining experience I've encountered in years! The service was less than memorable. The server had zero emotion or accountability. It started with ordering margaritas. We each ordered a different one but both of us found them so tart they were unconsumable. When the waiter found time to check on us and take our order he was oblivious to the fact our second drinks (after sending back the first ones) were barely touched though at least 15 minutes passed. When the food arrived we were informed they were out of the black beans that we both had ordered. Very, matter of fact. The option we were given was pinto beans, mostly broth. When our waters were finally refilled after sitting empty for some time (on a quiet Tuesday night), they were refilled with soda water. We approached the bartender to get tap water and overheard the waiter indicate he gets those confused but an apology never arrived at our table. An oblivious eye was turned to the fact that the re-made margaritas were left completely full (as they were only marginally better but still unconsumable). The bartender actually removed our plates (after we sent our original drinks back) but never uttered a word about our basically untouched beverages but they certainly had no issue charging us for them. A complete failure all around. It was clear that while other customers were still in the restaurant the bartender was focused on the lovely lady seated at the bar while our waiter must have been focused on the clock (though it was barely past 9 when we left.) Do yourself a favor and eat ANYWHERE else. I've never been so insulted or disappointed in a restaurant as I am in this place. I've also never posted a negative review before but it's been earned here. Enter at your own risk.

  • Chris B.

    All in all not a bad place for lunch. The food was good but not excellent in my opinion. I had the Chile Verde burrito and although it was good I think the cilantro and onions overpowered the flavor of the the green chile.

  • Chris W.

    If you enjoy Macayos, Manuels and all of the other typical generic Mexican restaurants that slather their plates with sloppy beans, rice and taco/enchilada then Mejico is not the place for you. Obed, Pam and crew are aiming for something a little more upscale than combination B - and they are successful. The margaritas are fresh and delicious. I love their guacamole Their shrimp ceviche (Mexican shrimp cocktail)is the best I have ever had in a restaurant in Arizona. The Chili Verde is delicious! They have recently added a happy hour MONDAY - FRIDAY from 3 - 6pm with reduced drinks and food and there is an outside patio planned. Stop by, relax and enjoy a great experience.

  • Professor M.

    The remodel they did to the building is very nice. It is cozy and cute inside. The service was friendly and attentive. My wife got a margarita and it was fantastic, fresh made from scratch. I got the beef enchiladas and they were delicious. My wife got the green chili and it was top notch as well. Overall, the fare was fresher and more interesting than a typical Mexican restaurant. We loved the food but we probably won't be going back much. It was just too expensive for what you get. The margarita was $13. Our bill came to just over $70 for 2 entries and 2 drinks. There are a lot of alternatives in the area that are significantly less. They need a few lower priced (under $10) items on the menu. They charged $4 for chips and salsa. it's too bad they priced the food one tier above what they deliver. It was a great experience otherwise. My review is one star lower as a result.

    We live in the area and have an easy walk to Mejico. I wanted to follow an earlier reviewer's advice about a great happy hour (Christine) but unfortunately we were extremely disappointed. We arrived on a Friday afternoon about 4 PM, on a night when Bink's across the street was closed for a private party. Mejico looked nice, we liked the vibe. But man, this is not a Happy Hour. This is a Sad Hour. What's so special about really, really miniature street tacos or a $3 cheese quesadilla that is so small it is literally only three small bites? Happy Hour is, for us, a time to experience a new place -- to get a feel for the ambiance, the menu items and so forth. For example, go to Happy Hour at Beckett's Table and you get a feel for their menu and their flavors. At Mejico, they take a tiny 6" flour tortilla, put a tiny amount of cheese in it and roll it over. It was a ripoff, and I don't say that lightly because anything you get for $3 has got to be small (so assume this is REALLY small). The special happy hour margarita was just a much smaller version of their real margarita, and so forth. Basically, we'll never go back and the owner lost out on the opportunity to get a new set of regulars. All you have to do is treat happy hour as if it is special -- and give a warm welcome. In this case, the smell of pot wafting into the front of the house from the kitchen and the glazed look on the two waiters faces was a bit much. When one of them asked how we enjoyed the food and we told them what a bad value it was, he simply smiled and walked away. This place is s short-timer, and thats a shame because mid-town is a potentially cool area and the owner spent some money on the inside.

Mexican Cuisine

If you enjoy Taco Tuesday, then you have officially fallen in love with the Mexican Food. The main grain of Mexican cuisine is maize. Also known as corn, maize is grown for the past 9000 years after the crop was discovered by the people in Mayan civilization. Mexican empire flourished when they started growing beans, tomatoes, chili pepper, sweet potato and cactus. Till this date these ingredients are used in cooking authentic Mexican dishes and drinks.

Great use of spices, fresh chili pepper dishes like fajitas, tortilla chips, corn chips, salsa, chimichangas, burritos, nachos and quesadillas are invented in America. But when you are looking for authentic Mexican food then you must find a restaurant in the city that serves Rajas con Queso, Garbanzo in a Guajillo Chile Sauce, Pork Filled Chiles Rellenos, Chiles en Nogada, Molcajete Salsa, Pico de Gallo and Frijoles de la Olla. An eye-opening fact – Mexican don't like their food hot. They use fresh chili and other spices to create a flavor that lingers in your mouth.

Mexican food is great for those who are Gluten Intolerant as they use Corn instead of wheat in most of their dishes. Also, you can easily find many beans based Mexican dishes. Another dish which didn't get similar glory as tacos or nachos is the Mexican hot chocolate. If you love something hot on a chilly day, then go for Mexican Hot Chocolate. On merry days, you can enjoy the authentic Mexican Drinks like Tequila, Mezcal, Tecuí, Sotol, Bacanora, Charanda, Posh O Pox, Puebla and Pulque. Mexican Cuisine is for people who enjoy strong drinks and hearty meals.
