Pull up a stool, join us at the Mad Mex in Willow Grove, PA. We are Funky and not scared to put fun things together if they taste good. We make just about everything from scratch daily. Inspired by West Coast food: healthy, fun, local, experimental. And microbrews. We don't use any lard but simple marinades of citrus and spices. We love Mexican food and big flavors, big plates, fire and sunshine, beer and tequila to wash it down. That is why we are Funky Fresh Cal-Mex! This ain't no Mexican restaurant, this is MAD MEX! Come in and enjoy one of the best happy hours in Willow Grove.

Good food, slow service.

As a birthday choice, Mad Mex is generally one of our favorite restaurants. This visit was a Sunday night about 6:30 and we had a party of 6 plus a 2 year old. This is the first time we have been seated in the darker part of the restaurant. We were in the back by the kitchen and restrooms. It... read more

I like this place as it has many vegetarian options. I like the black bean soup. During lunch (up to 4 PM) they offer lot of combo deals and the prices are reasonable. The decor is a little weird. This place seems like every day is Halloween out here.

Jeff, we're so happy that you've been able to take advantage of our vegetarian options! Thank you so much for this great review. (We know our decor is a little quirky -- hopefully it grows on you!) Take care, Lindsay, Customer Service Manager More

...that I have for this place. Edgy atmosphere, great Mexican and some of the best margaritas I've ever tasted! It can get crowded on nice days and the weekends, so try and make reservations if you can. Go for the guac and burritos - they will not disappoint.

I first encountered Mad Mex when my daughter went to the Univeristy of Pittsburg. We took her and roommate out for dinner and this was the place they picked. It was packed and after getting seated and having some drinks and food I understood why. Everything was surprisingly great for a college town restaurant. We then found that they were... More

We like Mexican food, so when Mad Mex first opened we were happy. However, we have had a few small taquerias open close by, and to be honest, their tacos are much tastier. The margaritas here are a good deal, but the food often comes out cold.

Thanks for touching base, Dwaine. We put an emphasis on non-traditional dishes…we apologize if they weren't your style! As for the cold food -- that's definitely unacceptable. I will be sure to mention it to my team. I'd really love if you gave us a second chance to impress you! Have a good day, Lindsay, Customer Service Manager More

We've been going to this place about 6-8x/year for the past few years. The food is always of high quality and tasty. The goblerito burrito is a must have. It is an entire turkey dinner inside a burrito (turkey, stuffing, corn, beans, gravy). It's only offered twice a year (Oct/Nov and July). Happy hour (430-630) is a good deal with... More

They have a monthly margarita in addition to the standard margarita options and I have enjoyed most of them. Large beer selection and the food is good and reasonably priced

We went to Mad Mex with another couple the last Saturday of October. I recommend getting there before 630-7, when we arrived we were seated immediately but there were people sitting outside the restaurant waiting when we left.
