This was an excellent Mexican restaurant. Try the different kind of Empanadas for Appetizer. Large selection of entrees which are all good. Unusual recipes but very tasty.

I have been searching for and consistently disappointed by Mexican restaurants in the area. They all tend to be virtually the same. Same menu, same sides, same everything. What an incredible change of pace going to Mago. Located in the heart of downtown Arlington Heights...More

Amazing mole and good staff! I was here for my friends birthday dinner. The staff helped us sing happy birthday and gave the celebrants a couple of colorful sombreros. The food was delicious. The chips was served with three kinds of salsa. The guacamole was...More

We go to Mago whenever we are in the Chicago area; the food and service are always very good and the portions generous. We believe the decor has been updated since our last visit and it looks great. It's worth a visit if you are...More
