Had a birthday dinner here for a family of ten. Adults and kids all enjoyed the food. A family run restaurant. It's like Mexican home cooking. It's our #1 place for Mexican food. Patio seating is available in nice weather.

While you can find the usual tacos and burritos and such on the menu here, the restaurant features a whole lot more. You can truly eat healthy at Mi Mexico. We tried a couple of very different shrimp dishes, and both were outstanding. Great flavors, fresh veggies, and no beans! The classic margarita is also wonderful, served in a small... More

We went for lunch on a weekday--not crowded. I ordered a chicken chimichanga and my friend ordered a burrito. For $7 we each had a huge amount of food, most of which went home in a box for the next day. This was the first time I had been there for lunch. We both were impressed with the meal. We... More

I visited this restaurant with my bff and we had wonderful service. This is a family restaurant and I mean family. It's so nice to see the family members working together to serve their customers. We were very well taken care of. Had happy hour drinks and dips and chips. Great food! I will visit again.

The margaritas are awesome. They know how to make them right. If you have more than 2, get an uber for reals. Nobody makes a better margarita. The chips and quaso is always good too. Service is great. Great family place too. A little more expensive than the average Mexican restaurant but worth it. Try it!

Stopped in this place last Saturday and was impressed to say the least. We were seated without delay and they immediately brought chips, salsa and beans that were seasoned to perfection. Margaritas were good, service was polite and timely. We had the fajitas and the aroma alone set my tastebuds on fire. Again, seasoned perfectly and served sizzling hot with... More
