I took my mother to Mestizo for a late lunch/early dinner. We arrived about 4ish to a practically empty dining room and about 5-7 occupied tables outside. We were greeted promptly by the host and our server, Regina. We took her up on her recommendation for the "Spicy Margarita" (at $15 each). We both enjoyed it. For entrees, I ordered... More

One of my favorite spots to take clients in the area. Food is Mexican but has a unique twist that always surprises. Have done the taco special most of the time. Service over lunch hour has been consistently attentive. I had the mahi mahi fish taco's today, could have used a third one but very tasty. Started with the fresh... More

Very good dining experience with business associates. Food was delicious. Enjoyed dining on the patio in Park Place area. Menu was somewhat limited but overall good value. Service was solid.

I have dined at Mestizos multiple times. The amazing food brings me back. But if you want a fantastic experience, sit at the bar. In any other area, the service is less than comparable to fast food.

We ate at a lot of fun and delicious places on our latest trip to KC but my wife said this was her favorite meal we had. I also thought it was great, not my favorite but really great. We sat out on their rooftop deck on a nice cool night. Out food was great we had their Queso Fundido... More

I've lived in New Mexico for 10 years now and have learned to be very picky about Mexican food. So much food called Mexican is simply bland and tasteless. After reading some of these reviews of this restaurant, I'm surprised at the lack of taste of some people, and strongly disagree. The food I had here was authentic, very well... More

If you watch "Chooped" you know of the owner as a frequent judge. His main restaurant is in NYC, and this is his first venture in the midwest. Genuine Mexican cuisine with a flash of sophistication is the order of the day. Nice location in Town Center, Leawood....and upscale development. Nice seating in and out. Good service.

Menu looked good, but food was old and dry, and pay attention to the happy hour prices, we got charged doubled. They hire all these kids that careless and or are trained to do their job, our waiter took our drinks away before we have finished without asking. And all these new food places, they think the music and everything... More

This place never seems to be busy but it is very good. A wide variety of choices, this is not the run of the mill Tex-Mex restaurant. The restaurant itself is beautiful. It is a bit pricey but in general you get what you pay for.
