Great Mexican food. Nice restaurant and friendly staff to take care of you. Have an empty stomach because they will fill it.

My family loves this place, and we have been going to it since the 1960's. My only complaint is about the old, dirty carpet in the back room. Why, just why? Carpet is not good for a restaurant to begin with because food falls on it, and it is hard to clean. The owners really need to remove the old... More

After a meeting, went here by a suggestion. Food was great. Chips, salsa. Not a huge menu, but that's not a bad thing! Waitress was friendly, fast. Had chicken enchiladas and they were yummy.

I have been eating at Mexican Villa since I could chew. 55+ years. I think it is a riot that people say they don't like it because it's not "real" Mexican. Is your mom's food like everyone else's mom's food? The food is fresh, delicious and unique to this restaurant. Springfield loves Mexican Villa.

My favorite thing to eat here is the Sancho, without sauce. It's always soft, warm and full of melted cheese and ground beef. Of course they have all the usual items and 3 different types of salsa for your chips but this is my favorite. Prices are reasonable and service is always good. The one on National is where we...

We've eaten at Mexican Villa for more than forty years and it's still consistently good with flavors that are the same every time we eat here. We also love the three salsas and always take some home with us.

Mexican Villa is a part of Springfield food culture. People either love it or hate it. Don't visit here looking for fajitas or salsa. They are known for burritos enchilada-style. It's a large flour tortilla stuffed with beans and ground beef, covered in an enchilada sauce, with lettuce on top of it. It is an experience but know what you... More

Ummmm. We came here based on a recommendation and wish we hadn't. The food was just ok, and the salsa tasted like runny tomato sauce. Maybe we are used to different flavor profiles and Mexican food being that we are from Arizona? Server was nice. Just not for us.

What is going on at Mexican Villa! Everything is so much better than before and they cater!*€¥•#? We have enjoyed a few catering that bring their traditional wonders to our office.

Hands-down the worst Mexican food I have ever eaten in my whole entire life! Seriously. Save your money and your taste buds and go to Taco Bell. The cheese dip tasted like somebody melted down a block of American cheese and added milk to it. The salsa had no heat and was sweet and sugary. Disgusting. The service however was... More
