“Good food...cashier took a while to warm up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2011

I found this place about 10 years ago on a visit and remembered it as a neighborhood take out hangout. I raved about it then.
Same place but upon walking in this time the girl taking orders took a while to warm up to us. Took her ages to take her hand off her face and get up off the stool she was sitting on bored out of her mind. She finally came around and explained some menu items to us. The Chicken Tacos I had were great and also the Beef Macho Taco was good too. Sides of Rice/Beans served in a little hard taco bowl very nice. Liked the food a lot if you can get past the bad service. Next time I will get my food for take out. It is open till 5/6 am so I guess it's your late night snack coming out of the bars.

“Great quality and very cheap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2011

Now called T-Mex and opposite Cafe Deuce on 14th. They make everything fresh to order. It is great value for money and damn tasty Mexican food with a couple of beers. A much better way to spend your money than on the strip. Check it out - also Lime is a good alternative over on Alton.

“Bad food. Run away fast!!!!””
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2010

T-Mex. This place lives up to it's name. (Tyrannosaurus-Mex)
I had a prehistoric fish taco. They said it was Cod but was some cold hard petrified breaded thing that was a fish in a former life. A chicken taco had some untastful
White dinosaur meat in it. The guacamole I ordered had no taste either and was served in a rancid corn shell.

I could not even eat this disgusting excuse for food.
Unless your drunk and don't know what you're eating,
I'll recommend that you stay away!!!!!

“Ehhh... Just average...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2010

My husband and I went here on a recent visit to South Beach. I had the chicken nachos and he the chicken burrito. Nothing spectacular but quite edible. It was reasonably priced. The food was pretty basic, shredded chicken, jalapenos, etc. Its definitely a place to go when you don't want to spend much. I'd give it another try.

“HORRIBLE PLACE, AVOID”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2010

Awful food and service - these people act like you are the most annoying person on earth and you were not supposed to be there interrupting their endless behind the counter conversations.
I like mexican food a lot and have been to a lot of mexican restaurants and I don't understand how come these people even call mexican to this "food" they are selling. Everything (no exception) tastes really bad and the ingredients have no quality what so ever. Very low quality and high prices for what you get (greedy people - you only get 1 free refill of soda and they charge you $.25 for water). It's a shame this was our last meal in Miami Beach as it left a very bad impression. DON'T GO.
