Had a birthday party in their event room. Thirty people fit perfectly. It was a weekend, but unlike other places, lunch menu seven days a week, so a little cheaper per plate. Service was good and everyone liked the food. Very cute place. Lots of...More

Great colorful Mexican atmosphere, great variety of food, vary reasonable prices. This is a family run restaurant by a great, friendly family. We eat there often and have enjoyed every meal we had, never a bad experience.

Many times we've gone to Mexican Restaurants and enjoyed the food but came away with a heavy feeling that just made us feel blah. Well I'm happy to report we did enjoy the food and didn't have that heavy feeling at this restaurant. The food...More

I go to Mi Mexico whenever I can. They have an extensive menu and the food is always spot on. I am a Vegan so for me it is hard to find a good restaurant but I always know I can go to Mi Mexico.

We work in the area and love this place. We go here at least once a month. The service is phenominal. They have a lunch menu and the prices are pretty good. It's usually about $15 pp for lunch and that includes a soda/food/tip.

I recently had lunch in Mi Mexico restaurant and was very disappointed. Salsa and chips didn't taste well and while the plate itself was flaming hot the burrito was lukewarm and was not tasty either. Lunch left me with heavy fullness, heartburn, and belching.
