Arrived just before it started to rain/storm. It was a bit loud inside (definitely right next to the campus and was a fun atmosphere) so we opted to sit outside on the patio. Weren't out there long before it started to rain. We got up and went inside. If there any negative it is that I wish our server or... More

Chips are not free & dinner is extra...but definitely worth the price. Fresh food & many healthy alternatives! Patio dining experience was A+++. Would definitely eat here again when in Columbus.

MadMex is truly a campus gem. Let's be honest. Ohio is a wasteland when it comes to Mexican-styled cuisine. The best we get is Taco Bell. Not only is MadMex the a good solution to this problem, it's the perfect, vegan-friendly solution. MadMex has a gigantic mutlipage menu. A large portion of the items can be made vegan with Daiya...

If you like a crowded sports bar, lots of noise and activity, this is the place. Very popular with students and specializes in Mexican food. All the food was good, portions big, and the prices were reasonable. They have a great selection of beer as well as other drinks.

This restaurant is at the south end of the Ohio State University campus on High Street. The waite staff was exceptionally friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious and the margaritas very good. We had the beef burrito and it was hot (temperature) and very tasty. We sat outside for lunch and enjoyed people watching. We were not rushed at... More

Looking for somewhere to eat dinner before a night football game led us to Mad Mex. Given the other, mainly fast food places on High Street or jammed sports bars there did not appear to be many good choices. So we took a chance and dined here. The food was surprisingly good - the Carnitas Enchiladas were quite tasty as... More

A friend and I went to Mad Mex on a Sunday night to celebrate my birthday. It had been a long time since I've dined there and I had completely forgotten about how the food was, so I really didn't know what to expect. I am happy to say that I enjoyed my chicken burrito. It was tasty and a... More

I like to go to the Mad Mex to watch sports or to dine before/after a movie. The menu is interesting, veggie friendly, and the staff is efficient and pretty nice. I would describe it as a good restaurant with a good bar in a good location. It can get loud if OSU is in session and there's something happening... More

Good eats. The black bean dip is highly recommended. Great selection of draught beer. Beer and wing half off during happy hour.

The food is not the best, but not bad. I would go to this place more for margaritas and appetizers. It's in the gateway theatre area, which is filled with bars and drunks. I like it, a nice place to go out and have a couple drinks with the friends. Price wise, I would pay for their food, but during... More
