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

The service was impeccable. The waitress knew every dish and every drink and gave great recommendations based on our needs (ie. not spicy etc). The food is definitely all homemade. Special highlights were the mole sauce made each day by Grandma, the barbacoa was melt in your mouth, chicken con rajas, shrimp tacos. Really everything was great. The margaritas were... More

We've been going to this little gem for some time....food and service were always great. I always order off the special menu and have yet to be disappointed. I can't say enough good things about the margaritas and appreciate the Nergo Modelo on draft. In the great culinary waste land of suburbia this one of our few breaks from mediocrity.... More

We have been wanting to go to this restaurant since we heard that it was good. Our experience was horrible. Stale cold chips, yes, 4 salsas but I would prefer to have one good salsa! Horrible service. We were the only people in the restaurant and had to wait for our food, our check, everything. Overpriced and horrible.
