I don't know if it's authentic Mexican, but it's authentically good.

I have been eating at Mendoza's for a long time......since well before it was at the former Sohio location it now occupies. Although it's not quite the value it once was, the food is still worth a stop. My favorites are still the wet burritos (or Sanchos) and I don't leave hungry. The decor is... read more

Very good authentic Mexican restaurant! The owner is usually there & always greets, will make you things that aren't on the menu, just ask. Atmosphere is similar to being in Mexico, lively & festive.

The food here is amazing.The staff is attentive and friendly and you will be a customer for life once you have eaten here.Everything we have ever eaten here has been great and we love the funky atomosphere.People in Northwest Ohio rave about Mexican places in Toledo.but this beats any place we have tried there.

This is great, simple mexican food! The prices are good and you can order al la carte so for the kids it was nice to get a variety. Soda is expensive.

We really enjoyed the authentic Mexican food from this place. Had the tacos and enchiladas. Only thing that could have been improved was the re-fried beans seem like they were from a can. Other than that all was good.

My family has been going to Mendoza´s for as long as I can remember. Way longer than when they had the tiny restaurant next to the gas station in west Port Clinton. This restaurant is the highlight of my trips to this area. We all have our preference. My sister and my mom get the wet Sancho. My dad gets... More

The bad reviews here have to be by people who have never been to Baha Mexico or south of the border past the tourist traps. If you are use to the Microwave restaurants, you better ask about what you are ordering. The wet sauce is not Salsa, it is the traditional molé. With that in mind, ignore the decor because... More
