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. The standard items (tacos/burritos/enchiladas) are all delicious (although we have not been a fan of the chicken tacos) however for really flavorful dishes go with any of... More

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.

We tried Mexico one Sunday as it is a favorite of some friends we were visiting. Getting there before it opened...however, they seated the four of us. We had fajitas and Quesadillas. Being from Texas I am in search of a remembered Mexican food flavor and Mexico delivered. Loved my Chicken Quesadillas. Just perfect. Did not try my husbands fajitas.... More

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.

We were driving home from Shenandoah National Park heading near Richmond and wanted to find somewhere to eat dinner. It was a group of seven of us and we figured Mexican food would be quick, relatively cheap, and good. Garmin directed us to this place as it was right off I-64 so we wouldn't have to go out of our...
