Tex-Mex is right outside the Ginza in a relaxed part of town. Nice drinks, good staff, and an overall positive atmosphere

I wouldn't call Mike's "great Mexican," but as a Texan who lived in CA for a LONG time and was craving an enchilada, it was very welcome! I'd call it East Coast Mexican if I were trying to explain it to someone from the US. The guacamole was wonderful, but skip the salsa. It tasted of straight canned tomatoes. No... More

the food is well prepared and service is fast and friendly. Good Margarita's. i have ordered the enchiladas and burritos, both were good. I was disappointed in the chicken fajitas. the chicken fajitas were made with fried chicken patty. all in all a descent place to have Mexican food.

Oddly good texmex for Japan. Fantastic fresh fruit margaritas in many flavors! They prefer cash and will take US dollars at a fair exchange rate posted on the wall. I suggest the guacamole.

Polaroid photos of drunken sailors and Japanese/American mismatched couples plaster the walls. You notice the graffitied dollar bills tacked to the ceiling, You realize this is a popular American hang out. The food is great and the drinks Are greater. This place is good for a casual night out with the bros, or if you miss the Tex-Mex of good... More

It was surprising to get quite authentic-tasting Mexican food here in Sasebo, Japan. I had enchiladas and a taco, with rice and beans. It was all good .. so was the marguerita and the following shot of gold tequila :-)

Really enjoyed coming to Mikes.. the margaritas are big and strong.. I always got the hungry hombre combination plate.. the food reminded of a taqueria in San Antonio or any other Texas town.. it is a pleasant change from the local Japanese food

Highly recommend. The food was some of the better Mexican i have had in a while. I recommend passing on the corona-rita though. Tastes like a mix of watered down beer and sugar.

Best Tex Mex in Sasebo. Lots of different Margaritas to choose from. The food is authentic and you have many options to choose from as well as spice level.

Absolutely love the freshness and hearty preparation of the dishes! The tomatillo salsa was so spicy and so tangy! The tortilla chips were home fried to perfection! I can't believe I had the best Mexican food of my life in Japan!
