Overpriced and limited menu. This restaurant has a great margarita( although not cheap) decent chips & guacamole. Best feature is its location!

We have been to an Aaron Sanchez restaurant in NYC. this one was a bit different in concept and menu but just as good. There was a few tiny issues such as cold soup, hominy pork soup, delicious hot. Brussels sprouts salad was a bit dry and it didn't come with cicharonne as stated in the menu. I felt it... More

We are a fan of Aron Sanchez and looked forward to trying his restaurant. We arrived at 6:30 on a Sunday evening and we were surprised that there was only one other party dining. We were met promptly and received great service. We enjoyed the shrimp and scallop ceviche with the plantain chips. We had the pork cheek special over... More

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
