My first time going to Mexi's & I had been looking forward to it for awhile !!! Their sangria is $12 a pitcher all day on Saturday ! Must say, the food is nothing close to gourmet, kind of cheap quality and overpriced... but hey... I wasn't there for the food... I was there for the sangria (the food was... More

The one thing that stood out about this restaurant was the happy, helpful staff. The food was tasty and well presented. Overall, what I expect from a Mexicali Rosas, with a special touch from the staff :)

The Taquitos were yummy but not really worth $9 for three of them. The nachos were good but not stellar (which is what I was hoping for). It was surprisingly quiet for a Saturday night - we walked right in and got a table right away in the early evening. It's ok if you're in the area, but not sure... More

As a Mexican-America I'm always curious to try Mexican cuisine in different areas and we had already had amazing food the day before so we decided to try this place for lunch the next day. It is in the middle of town however its hidden up a flight of stairs and through some hallways. The staff was friendly and attentive.... More

Went here with some friends because we heard the nachos were good. Turns out they were good, but not the best I've had either. We were somewhat disappointed that they didn't have much in the way of happy hour deals, but to each their own. I got an avocado salad which was excellent. The service was pretty good overall.

This used to be an excellent restaurant but the food quality has been downgraded to terrible. Imagine ordering a plate of nachos and they serve you a small plate of them with burnt cheese and some kind of squeeze out of a tube tomato sauce on top of it...this is a Mexican restaurant and it has the worst nachos in...

We went to Mexi's recently, at my request, on my birthday. We've not been there since they moved to their present location, and now I doubt we'll be back. It isn't what it used to be in the past. Our server was pretty good at the start, but the orders were a long time coming. From the time we walked... More

This place makes great fajitas. There is special on the single fajitas, $5 off before 6pm on Wednesday. Talk about a deal. The service was great. The wings are not battered (big plus) and are fantastic, the honey garlic are some of the best I have had. This is some of the best "pub" food that I eaten anywhere. Will... More

We stopped here while shopping as we are familiar with this chain of restaurants. We were very disappointed in the lack of flavour. I had a burrito bowl which should have been packed with flavor, but was bland. My daughter had Kraft Dinner that was full of chunks of unblended cheese. Very disappointing.
