love the Original Mexican Villa!

We just visited again after being back in town for the first time in 15 years. We actually came here after we got engaged 37years ago. Loved it then, love it now. Awesome chips and the sweet sauce is the best! The cheese enchiladas are legendary and my husband gets them everytime. I love the... read more

I paid 11 dollars for the Sancho Burrito. I expected rice and beans for that, but those were 2 dollars more each. So 15 dollars later I had a Burrito with meat sauce and lettuce. Then I had to wait until it was 3/4 of the way gone before the rice and beans showed. The food was good, and the... More

This place may have the best enchilada I've eaten anywhere. It has a cool retro vibe and the cheese dip is amazing. Try the sancho enchilada style too. I love eating here!

My wife had attended college down the road from the restaurant (many years ago). We were driving through Springfield last week. Since it had been a while since she had been in Springfield, she suggested we go to Mexican Villa. She had been there many times but this was my first visit. I really enjoyed the atmosphere, which I would... More

We have ate here several time and have found it to be very good. The food is good and made quickly. The staff always makes sure you are happy with their service and food. The prices are reasonable and the place is clean.

Filthy floor with lots of crumbled chips, wet table, ceiling leaking onto table, chicken nachos dry and flavorless, beef tacos nasty and no choice was given of soft or hard, queso dip gritty. The only semi-decent thing was the waitress. Unprofessional but adequate. A dreadful end to our vacation. Never again!

First of all: You must like American style tex-mex Mexican food in order to love this place. If ground beef and cheese in a tortilla is not your thing, go elsewhere. This is not even remotely authentic Mexican food. That said, I love this place. Its a springfield institution. The burrito and Sancho enchilada style is so good. Covered in... More

The three things I liked were the following: the wattess; the rootbeer and the decor. The waitress was great. I was surprised that they served root beer, as many places in Virginia don't. The decor was as a quaint cafe. The food was not as i like, and tasted like canned Mecican. Sorry to rate it so poorly.
