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.

I had a business lunch at Mestizo and was excited to try the fajitas. The place was nearly empty at noon (looking back this should have been a clue as this should have been a popular biz lunch spot). Our group ordered - I ordered the steak fajitas. The fajitas were served medium-rare...okay...they must be extremely tender. Suffice to say... More

It is an expensive restaurant with average food and mediocre service. Drinks are alright, location is great but the quality of food and service has gone down over the last year. I am surprised it lasted this long.

We visited May 5, 2014. Their website indicated live music started at 8 pm. A tent at the hostess desk stated 6 pm. After waiting 40 minutes for the outdoor patio, the tabletop tent stated the music started at 5 pm. We waited much longer than we were told, but that happens sometimes. However, as we waited for our table... More

Mestizo Leawood offers many dishes not otherwise available around here. Don't call it Texmex, that's doesn't give it the justice it deserves. The appetizers, raw seafood choices and classic latino entrees are all excellent. We went for lunch and shared everything. My wife and I will be back. They have live bands and DJ's on various nights up in the... More
