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.

Step into the restaurant and you will not see a lot of Mexicans eating here, there's a reason this is not mexican food. Just because a Mexican cook the food does not make it mexican food. I would know I'm mexican. The food here has been adapted to carter to the local demographic. Which is smart for business volume, but... More

I normally eat at the Mexico in Mechanicsville where I work, but my husband and I live in Short Pump and went to eat at the one here. I have eaten at the Mexico in Mechanicsville and Williamsburg road so many times, I accumulated several free lunches with the punch cards. I like the one in Mechanicsville the best, maybe... More
