Mexican Gardens has been in Southgate for years. The food is always consistently good and the service is great. Guacamole is delicious!!
Best chicken and steak fajitas anywhere, hands down.
Frozen margaritas are awesome.

This place is just as good as it was when we started going there 30 years ago. There is plenty of seating, service is good, food is consistently great, and the value is excellent. They have had the same cook for over 20 years and the recipes and quality have not changed. Even the drinks are reasonable. Our absolute favorite is their botana. It's loaded with beef and beans along with olives, onions, avocado, tomato, and jalapenos. A large is way more than two people can eat. The chips and salsa are also great. They have plenty of Mexican beers and very good frozen strawberry margaritas.

Locals swear by Mexican Gardens. I find it just a bit better than bland. It's not bad food and the place is clean and always busy. However if you want better typical American Mexican food, drive 15 minutes to Mexican Village or better yet, to Mia Puebla. My wife likes Mexican Gardens so we go occasionally if I can't convince her to go elsewhere.

Restaurant overall is very nice atmosphere. Staff very friendly and professional. Food is very good. I rated this a 5 only because I used to go here back a few years ago. It was about a 3. Seems to have new management and everything seems better now.

We took a trip up to Michigan for the weekend and after getting to the hotel and checking in, after driving around to find a place to eat, we came back to this place, the food was alright to fill the empty stomach, but it would not be a choice of mine to return. The service was mediocre, we had to asking for stuff, such as silverware to eat with!
