I recently went to Mexicali Rosa's on Spring Garden Road on a Thursday evening as they had their nacho special on. We ordered the Chipolte Chicken Nacho's, the nacho's were good but there was barely an order for an appetizer for 2 people - I would say that I would not pay the regular price for those nachos. Then next... More

Manager Sarah made personally sure that everything was too our liking. Server Rachel was full of humor and a huge genuine smile. Good selection of beers (Corona and Dos EquXX were the only Mexican beers- but served with proper slice of lime.) The food is flavored to the locals - but three hot sauces were available to spice your personal... More

We went there last night for margaritas and fajitas. It was the best service I have ever had. The food was plentiful and hot. The beer was cold. And the drinks were good.

A plate of rice and 3 enchiladas the size of a hot dog, $14.99 It used to be MUCH more food for the price. Left still hungry And we went for Margarita Monday and was charged $10 for the drink. Never again... (heck, we can go to Taco Bell and get 7 tacos for that price).

The Grilled Honey Avocado Shrimp Quesadillas. I found these babies on my last visit and they are just too good. Just the right amount of food for a light supper or a heavy-ish lunch, and they are so succulent and juicy. It is one of my favourite dishes in town, and I'll definitely get it every time I go in...

I went to Mexi's for my birthday dinner this year. When my family arrived we saw the place had one other customer and a person who looked like they worked there was at the bar eating. She stopped when we came in and stood there for awhile but then went back to eating. Eventually, (after two other employees walked past... More

The service was good although I think there were 3 different servers for our table. The drinks were the best part although there were not many choices on the menu. The food however was not that great. The Guac was bad, all onions, bland, no taste. The other food was ok but nothing special.

Hey, it's a busy pub. The food was fast, hot and above average. That's what we hoped for and it's what we got. But I won't be taking my mum there for her birthday. Because it is what it is.

I come here regularly in the summer for Margarita Monday. They have a great selection of different flavoured margaritas and on Mondays they are only $5 for a single or $6 for a double. You can't beat that price for a good margarita. On occasion I have ordered food here. It is decent food but definitely too expensive for what... More
