You couldn't get a better meal unless you were in Mexico, The owner and her mother make everything from scratch, so you sure to have a fresh meal experience. And don't forget the Margareta's. Each one is made to order by their highly skilled bartenders. They have over 100 top notch tequila to chose from. The absolute best anywhere. I've... More

Expensive and average. Even though the reviews for this place are good... we don't see it. Food was average and not very authentic. Better Mexican in downtown Woodstock.

Mexican in Chicagoland? I am a Chicago area native transplanted in Jacksonville, Florida. Until I remembered that Rick Bayless ran two of the best Mexican places in the USA in downtown Chicago, I had not planned to eat here. BIG MISTAKE!! We got here at 6:00pm and found the only open table. The menu is loaded with mind-boggling choices and... More

It was our first visit to Mixteca. Heard good things about it from a co worker. He was right, great food, warm cozy atmosphere. We got there at 5:30 and within a half hour it was full. They also have out door seating as well. Driving by this place you would not know this is a new hot spot. Its... More

The atmosphere may be a tad bit rustic but the food is out of this world. My husband and I stop by just to pick up their salsa to take home it is so good. They serve up combinations of food that you would never imagine go together but seem to work amazingly. The beans and rice are the best... More

I really enjoyed the salsa sampler and chips, very tasty. The enchiladas in the green chili sauce had the right amount of heat and it was really good. And the margaritas. Many different varieties and flavors. Only tried a few and they were all delicious. The tequila selection they have for the margaritas is top notch and can't be beat... More

The chips and salsa sampler served for starters are excellent, multiple choices for the amount of heat in your salsa which works well for my family. Love the enchiladas and their mole sauce is delicious. Great homemade margaritas with fresh squeezed juices. You can't go wrong with Mixteca!

Having just moved to Woodstock, we wanted to try out a local restaurant. And were happy to find this gem! We started with chips and 4 kinds of salsa, Negro Modelo on tap (my husband was very pleased) and a margarita made with fresh squeezed juices and arriving in a generous portion size. Yum! Our server was a big help,... More

I absolutely love this tequila bar! Superb service! The staff go above and beyond to make sure you have everything you want. The ambiance is very contemporary and soothing. I recommend trying the specialty margaritas, I especially liked the guava and mango ones. Likewise, I enjoyed the salsa sampler you have to choose from. My only complaint is the lack... More
