After a long day visiting nearby Bents Fort, what I really needed was good Mexican food and a cold margarita! Found both at Mexico City Cafe so I am happy. Additionally, the entire staff in the place is THE FRIENDLIEST of any restaurant I have ever eaten in. No wonder it is a favorite among locals.

The proprietors were very friendly and the food was very good. When you're spending the night in a small, unfamiliar town, it's great to find a place that exceeds your expectations.

What a nice surprise to find a friendly, family staff hidden in a residential area. The drinks were great but the food had lots of room for improvement.

Good ratings moved us to try this restaurant. We drove about 20 miles off our route to try it. We were not disappointed. Old family recipes with great flavor. Pleasant setting on the patio. Well worth going out of your way. Waitress the best. Owners care about their customers.
