Really Good Mexican Food

Okay, I will admit I am a total food snob sometimes and for whatever reason, after living in Texas and Florida, I had little to no hope for a "Mexican" restaurant in the middle of Alabama, but this was the pick of a local friend for a lunch date while I was passing through. *deep breath* Consider... read more

I had read so many reviews about the authentic Mexican food here, we had to give it a shot. A shot in the dark I should say. We arrived pre-dinner rush and were met at the door by a very young man in shorts, no name tag,at hostess lecturn, who asked if he could help. Sure,do you have Tecate beer... More

This place has great food but the last couple of times we were there it was HOT...we asked if the air could be turned down and they said that it was already cool. When we got ready to leave and asked for a cup to take the drink, they charged 25 cents for a cup. The food is good but... More

This was my second visit to this restaurant. The staff is friendly enough, but the food and the cost is not worth stopping in for. The best thing about the whole meal on both occasions were the tostados. They were very crisp. The meal was nothing to brag about on either occasion and I probably won't go back unless it's... More

The food was great but the waiter was extremely rude! When I asked if I could have half of my meal boxed to go before it came to my table he said no! He told me to box it myself! I warn all of you of this man. He was rude to me and my friends the entire meal.

Horrible salsa. Tastes like ketchup with a few mystery chunks. Worse salsa I've ever had and I've had a lot! Stuff from the grocery store tastes better.

A great restaurant for friends and family. The food is good, prices are reasonable, & the service is friendly. If you are looking for a decent Mexican meal without all the hoopla this is your place!

My companion and I ended up at Mexican Connection in an unexpected way. In spite of competing attractions and having to deal with a heavy rain, we took a chance on an unknown restaurant. At 6 PM I felt I was taking a chance. By 7 PM I realized I had found my Dothan “Mexican Home.” Our experience was positive... More

Ate here with a few friends and I doubt we will be back. Well to start the food was very good. The waitress was very nice and friendly. Wish we could say the same about the lady at the cash resister. We had a party of four; two different tickets. We asked for another salsa so it would be two... More
