I've never been to Mexico (country) and I don't necessarily know that I've ever had "authentic" Mexican food but Mexico Restaurant seems to fit my mental picture of what good Mexican food is.

If you are short on time and/or looking for you a place to eat for you and coworkers. Mexico is the place to go. The good is and service is quick. I have never had to wait a long time for a table even around lunch time. Takeout is just as fast.

Mexico restaurant is one of those restaurants where (after you go) you say you'll never go back. Then, months later, you'll be in the mood for Mexican food and decide to go there again. This time I can say with certainty (and with my family to back me up) that I will never eat there again. The complimentary salsa served... More

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in Richmond. The grilled quesadillas and carnitas are my favirote items. The service is always great.
