Welcome home!

Although I no longer live or have any relatives in Grand Forks, my children and I MUST visit Mexican Village whenever we are in town. I have been eating at this unassuming restaurant for 40 years! The service at our last visit was terrific. The manager set the table up with chips and sauce... read more

My wife and I have been eating here for over 30 years and the food and service has always been to notch. I like the California burrito.

Good consistent food that hasn't changed since my childhood. Usually get the 'El Poco Loco & Taco' but everything tastes good.

The last two times we have been here (both times in this last month), we had a great experience (as we always have had). I love their salsa, which isn't chunky and not too spicy. Their chips have a good crisp to them with good flavor (without being too salty). I love that they have both Coke and Pepsi products.... More

I like Mexican Village Hot sauce, not too spicy which is good for me. I am Norwegian and unlike other Norwegian reviewers, I like their Mexican food. I usually go on Saturday and get the choice of any specials during the week, my favorite being their Mexican Pizza, usually more than I can eat so some goes home with me.... More

Am back in town again for a week and only made it to Mexican Village twice- wish it had been more. Had the Luncheon Beef Burrito for $5.99 -huge with lots of beef - the gravy was spiced perfectly and loads of cheese. It was so good I had it on both visits. Chips and sauce as always were delicious.... More

We eat here often, and it is very consistent. The prices are reasonable and the service is usually excellent. It is our favorite Mexican restaurant by far!

Mexican Village is the best Mexican food I have ever had. The lunch specials are inexpensive and very filling. Chips and sauce are delicious and very fresh. Had 3 meals here in the week I was visiting and all were perfect. The lunch taco salad was fresh and had plenty of meat for around $5. The beef tostados were beefy... More
