Great mexican food!

We go here regularly, it's gotten quite busy over the past 2 years- recently renovated, looks better visually than before but food is same! Come early to get a table. Drinks are always excellent- love the mushroom / meat fajitas special. Everything made fresh- you can really taste the difference.

I love Mexteca and obviously others do too. It is alway crowded. Food is so tasty but I think its way overpriced. I would probably go more often but because of the price, I only go when I just need their yummy food

The absolute best margaritas you will ever have. I know it sounds absurd or not possible but each one is hand made to order. No mixes no frozen drinks just tequilla they way it was supposed to be served. Oh and did I mention the food. Yum. We try and order off the special board. This is made special each... More

Yes, it's in a ratty little strip mall on a street veering towards industrial and not in Woodstock's beautiful downtown square, but that doesn't mean it's not worth the trip! After reading so many positive reviews, my boyfriend and I decided to stop in here for an early dinner and I am so glad we did. If I had to... More

So happy to report that our last trip to Mixteca was so much better. The service was really good and had really improved. They have excellent food and good drinks. We were so happy! You must order tamales -- they are the best around.

Went expecting good ... Got stale chips after we waited 15 mins before they even acknowledged we were there... I got my beer my husband got his after he was finished with his food ... Food was taco Bell equal absolutely ridiculous we stayed to see how much worse it could be... Laughable😖 bye bye Mixteca

My husband found this place when he was waiting for his car to be worked on at Bull Valley Ford. Walked over to try a Margarita and it is now his favorite Mexican Restaurant. I've never seen so many different types of Tequilla! Great authentic food, great service!

I stopped by for lunch and ordered the lunch portion enchilladas and a side of guacamoles for $7. I think the lunch order was ~9 or 10 bucks. Well, the guacamole tasted very good but the enchilladas.....: - Chicken was dry, so dry that I had to take it out of the enchillada - The beans were not as good... More

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 served a basket of... 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
