Interesting Mexican menu

In an area where there a number of restaurants, this one does stand out. When you are seated, you are provided with warm chips and three different salsas. Each was spiced a bit hotter than the next. We had the three tacos - pastor, chorizo and pollo, of which I liked the chicken the best. We... read more

Loved the chips and variety of 3 salsas. Guacamole tasted great! Chicken fajitas were delicious! Large portion! Enough for lunch the next day! I enjoyed a regular margarita and my girlfriends enjoyed the strawberry margaritas! Service was very attentive! Atmosphere was perfect for conversation!

Love this place. The food is excellent. There is always something to eat whether you are hungry - Carne Chihuahua, one of my favorites, or not so hungry -- three corn tortilla tacos, don't forget about a Margarita and your dinner is complete. Unless you go for the delicious Guacamole prepared tableside.

We highly recommend Mago to anyone who is looking for authentic Mexican food! A group of 10 went and we all got different dishes - each more tasty than the next! From the table-side guac to the hand-made margatitas, this place will satisfy you. It's a little on the small side, so be sure to make a reservation. If you... More

We were visiting in the area recently and wanted Mexican for dinner. My daughter found this gem on trip advisor and we decided to give it a try. We didn't have a reservation - it was only a Tuesday night after all - but it was definitely needed. Fortunately, they could fit us in with only a 45-minute wait. The... More

From the moment you walk in you feel quite welcomed. Very friendly servers. Food was delicious. They offer a mole' sampler which opened my palate to mole' made with coconut. The guacamole made fresh to your preference was absolutely yummy especially with warm chips. We had chicken tacos, green enchiladas, shrimp tacos, and shrimp with peanut mole' sauce. Mmmmmmm it...

My boyfriend and I have been looking for a good Mexican restaurant in our area and after reading reviews on TA, we settled on Mago. The restaurant was busy for a Tuesday night (which means it must be good) but, it's size made it kind of noisy. However, we enjoyed the atmosphere and REALLY enjoyed the food! The arroz con... More

We usually take friends here...because it's such a gem of a place in the suburbs. The last couple we took here had been to many well known Mexican restaurants in Chicago, where they had waited months for a reservation, and thought this place was sooooo much better! The menu is extensive and always updated. Specials are always something to try.... More
