Improvements!!!!!

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.

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

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
