Authentic "Springfield Mexican" Restaurant

Sure, it's not really "Mexican" food, or even strictly Tex-Mex. But this Springfield landmark restaurant serves its own blend of great, consistent Mexican food. Even better, you can purchase their own grated cheese and sauces to make your own queso dip at home.

We have been eating at the original Mexican Villa for years, most of the time we are pleased, today was terrible! My food came out cold and a bug ( I think it was a cockroach) crawled out from the woodwork by the booth we were seated in and onto our table. We reported this to the waiter, he simply... More

There are two types of people in Springfield - those who love Mexican Villa, and those who hate it. I'm the latter. The service when I've gone has always been horrible. I get better service at Taco Bell by MSU after a late Saturday night... and that's saying something, because they usually have to have cops in there. And the... More

This has been a favorite of mine for over 30 yrs. The Burrito Enchilada style is my choice. The cheese sauce is good stuff. The hot sauce is very good, also.

First time I was back in 30 years and the food was as great as I remembered. The portions are huge as anelderly couple I took split a plate and could not finish it. The service is as great as the food. I think this location has the better food over the other locations.

It needs to be stressed that the first draft of this review was much longer and had a lot more negative things to say. I've just pared it down to the minimum. The food at the Mexican Villa on National Avenue has never been anything to rave over. In a half-dozen visits since the 1990's, it has always been a... More

Mexican Villa use to be my mothers favorite restaurant and fir years we would dine here as often as we could. However it has steadily gone down hill until finally it has hit rock bottom and ruined any chance of our returning. Dining there with a group of 10 and not one of us enjoyed our meals. In fact my...

We recently made reservations at this restaurant for eleven. Granted that we arrived early for our reservation (15 minutes early) they had not even started to put tables together for it, even though there were less than 10 customers there. After another 10 minutes, we were seated. Normally tortilla chips and salsa are quickly delivered to the table. Although the... More

Mexican Villa on S. national is a landmark. It has been there for over 50 years always busy because the food is good and the prices are reasonable. Can't say its Tex-Mex. But the Burrito Enchilada Style is definitely their own creation. Becareful with the hot sauce; a little goes a long way..

Wonderful, authentic Mexican food unlike anywhere else!! Wish we had one at home! Cheese dip is wonderful! Try the 'sweet' salsa - it's great!
