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!!

Authentic and delicious. This little hole-in-the-wall is very good, but seating is limited so be prepared to wait during peak hours. Everything is delicious so give it all a try. The serving sizes are a good size, so you will not go away hungry.

So much of the food that we have in the U.S. that originated from another culture has been "Americanized" to make it more palatable for a wider audience. Visiting Taqueria Mixteca is like visiting a home kitchen in the Jalisco region of Mexico – freshly homemade and authentic. I had the chicken mole enchiladas. The chicken breast was fresh grilled...

We've eaten at most of the Mexican restaurants in the area looking for real, authentic and tasty food and everything has come up short until now. This place is small and kind of sketchy looking but the food is amazing! It was so filling we had to get a to go box for most of it. There is free chips... More

I have to admit the area scared me away for quite some time. But do take a drive here and go, it's very good. The service is iffy at times, but the food has always been delicious. I've stayed with tacos and the gordita, and I'm literally stuffed on the way out. The ground beef and grilled chicken are both... More

Its just down the street so I go there for lunch. I just get carry-out, so it is best to call ahead instead of waiting a long time at lunch time. Prices are good and I like that you get a choice of meat. I usually get a burrito for lunch. It is huge and will definitely fill you up,... More

Nothing fancy about this place — no booze, plastic furniture in a frumpy L shape — but the food is great (especially the huaraches), there are fresh juice drinks (cantaloup was especially flavorful), & the servers are friendly.

There are only a few places to get homemade style Mexican food in Dayton and not that commercial chain food. This is one of them and it is not bad. They offer authentic dishes at a very reasonable price. Open your mind and try something new. The chips and 3 salsa they offer when you sit down are an excellent... More
