My grandparents, sister, and I visited this restaurant in Springfield today for lunch and I must admit, I will probably not be back. I've been to many Mexican restaurants in Springfield and other cities in MO and the Mexican food here isn't bad but just too expensive for what you get. Their lunch menu only has about 6-8 items so... More

City Mexican Cuisine offers a great selection of Mexican selections form the various regions of the country. The Merida (tamales) were outstanding, and Ixtapas (fajita beef soft tacos) were tasty, with good portion size. We were delighted by the pineapple guacamole, and the pablano mix, We also highly recommend the chocolate tres leches torte - the perfect finish to a... More

Great food. May be my new fav Mexican restaurant If you are a Mexican villa/Taco Bell person. This place isn't for you. The menu is more upscale and fresh. Those who didn't like eating here go back to what you know. The rest if us will enjoy better tasting dishes.

Menu: not sure I'm all for the names of the dishes, but okay. Descriptions helped. Owners: attentive, interested in the diners' experiences. Location: VERY difficult to find. Signage is not easily seen from the major road. Luckily it's in a... More

We had been reading some of the review for City Mexican and decided to give it a try. We went during the middle of the afternoon and were delighted with our meal. Joel was out waiter and he was very knowledgeable of the menu and was delightful. The Juarez was excellent and it will definitely bring me back for more.... More

I found the food to be fresh and delicious, although the salsa was just run of the mill. The owners have opted for what to me is an overly-precious menu where each item is named after a Mexican city. This could have been a really fantastic idea were there, in fact, in connection between each dish and the city for... More

I hate to give a bad review but City Mexican Cuisine is not impressive. I'm not picky when it comes to Mexican food but the meat in my "steak" burrito seemed to be nothing more than lunch meat roast beef. Thank goodness I only purchased the groupon and didn't pay full price because it is not worth $10 for an... More

Have eaten twice here in the past month with my wife. The food we had both times was very, very good. I had their version of fajitas the first time and was impressed by the quantity and the quality of the food. If you go be sure to get their homemade chips with the queso appetizer - absolutely fantastic! My... More
