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.

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...

Excellent food, and better service than typical Mexican restaurants. I particularly liked the Camarones Diablo, a very spicy shrimp dish served over white rice.

This is my go to spot for Mexican food. Many of the mexican food places use a poor quality beef which is discusting. All dishes I have tried are good. Like this for lunch and dinner with Spouse, family with kids, Friends and coworkers.

They have a unique seasoning that they use in most of their dishes. Prices are fair for what you get.
