Description: 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.

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

Thanks for being such a dedicated customer, Jeff! We're really stoked that you know the ins and outs of the restaurant! So sorry about the long wait for drinks, though — we will be sure to get to the bottom of the issue. Thanks again for the kind words and for the insider tips about the Gobblerito and our happy...

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. Our server was fantastic, checked on us more than 5 times, food was amazing (I had the gobbler-rito) and price was approx... More

Stopped by at noon for quick lunch. Ordered beer and chicken fingers from a scary bartender. She was dressed in VERY casual cloths and had tattoos and piercings that I never have seen before.

Reasonably priced lunch menu. Service is adequately paced. You are not rushed to leave or starved before you see your first morsel. I tried the Mad Mex Quesadilla a house special which was pretty good and the black bean soup which was tasty as well. My colleague ordered the burrito which was a large burrito and very filling for lunch.... More

I've been obsessed with this place since it opened. In a nutshell it is consistently wonderful Mexican food at great prices and a wide selection of freshly squeezed margaritas and a great craft beer list (which I don't drink but my husband loves). My absolutely favorite thing on the menu are the crunchy fish tacos. They are cornmeal crusted tilapia... More
