Not your typical Mexican restaurant.

I drive by Mixteca at least once a week and always thought it looked like your typical Mexican restaurant in a strip mall...nothing special. I was wrong. My son and I stopped in for lunch one day and was really surprised how nice it is on the inside. We walked in and were immediately seated and... read more

The restaurant is nicely decorated. The food is very good and authentic. However the service really needs to be worked on. We have tried giving it 3 and 4 chances. But each time we go we sit and wait for wait staff. The bus boys we keep the chips flowing, but patrons need to be offered at least a drink.... More

I never would have stopped here except a friend recommended it. This is a cozy, slightly upscale, visually pleasing, good service, great food mexican restaurant. The portion sizes are a bit inconsistent between different dishes. I've eaten here three times now and had slightly small, just right, and I'm overstuffed experiences on three different meals - but spent about the... More

I chose this restaurant because of its great rating. It was good but nothing more. My benchmark is a chicken chimichanga and this one missed the mark. The chicken tasted like it was barbequed and the seasoning was bland.

This was my wife and my first visit to Mixteca, while it's nothing fancy from the outside; part of a strip mall, we found the restaurant to be clean, the service and food excellent, and the portions generous. My wife had the fish tacos and I had a special; chicken fajitas with portobello mushrooms. We thought it just a bit... More

We had a great dinner at Mixteca. I had the fish tacos and my hubby had the steak burrito. We both enjoyed our meals and I especially enjoyed my Don Julio Margarita. Loved theat they served Flan for dessert and was happy that I didn't eat too many chips so that I still had room for it. We will definitely... More

Spectacular specials both on the margarita and food menu. Must tries include guacamole, ceviche and shrimp/chorizo tacos. Expect a 20 minute wait for a table at dinner time on the weekends.

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
