Good food, great prices

The food was really good, service was quick, $7.78 for food and drink. What's not to like. It's off the beaten path and not the best decor, but who cares.

Amazing, amazing,amazing. The chips were fresh and served warm. The food was out of this world. Had an amazing burrito with steak and chicken. It was huge and a great price. I am impressed.

The outside looks like a vaguely abandoned fast food joint, the interior feels tiny and run down, and the bathrooms are hilarious... That aside the kitchen is clean (I'VE never had any problems with food poisoning) and you'll get fantastically authentic mexican for a stupidly good price. The usual suspects can all be found here (tacos, burritos, fajitas, etc.) but... More

Guacamole and fresh made tortilla chips to start. Quesadilla (chicken) and the chilies rellenos were fresh, tasty and generous portions. Love the fact that they serve Mexican made soft drinks (no corn syrup!). The decor is pure left-over Burger Chef formica, but who cares when the food is so good and so cheap.

I dined here the day after Christmas while visiting my family in Dayton. The customer service was horrible and the food was just mediocre. I ordered Chicken Campenos and wasn't told they were out of chorizo until I mentioned to the rude waitress it was missing from my dish. No apology no offer of a substitution. Of course the dining...

Well - I was surprised that the restaurant was really a run down old fast food place and the bathroom was outside. Not fun when its cold outside. There are about 12 tables and the place got very busy right after we arrived around 1700. Almost every table was full and there were two servers staying very busy. The food... More

Finally, a real Mexican restaurant is available in the area. While there are Mexican foods I don't like such as tripe soup, it is good to know they are available. I find food in most area Mexican restaurants to be unlike any I ever had in Mexico or even NEW Mexico! Taqueria Mixteca is an exception. I had lunch there... More

This is the most awesome and authentic mexican food I have ever eaten. My husband and I love this restaurant and visit as often as possible. When anyone visits us we always take them to eat here. Service is wonderful, portions are huge, prices are perfect! If you come to Dayton, make sure to visit this little gem!!
