Good but not great

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

Great place! Hidden jewel. Great margaritas! Service good. I never order chicken, but decided to try special and very happy I went out of my norm. Cant wait to go back and try 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

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
