Had been here once before but left because of the noise. Tried again on a Saturday night but later in the evening (8:30 pm). Noise level was a bit better because we were seated near the windows vs. in the back or center of the restaurant. Wait staff was very attentive. Taco salad was good but had very little lettuce....

This is one of my "go to" restaurants when I have a taste for authentic Mexican food. The menu has a good variety of choices. I highly recommend the tequila shrimp enchiladas. It has a little "kick" to it and it is excellent. The service is very friendly and the location is very convenient.

Wow! See my posted pics...the food was amazing and the chips and 3 dips they bring to the table was so good. We had the nicest waitress that explains all the ingredients and actually was patient with us while we looked over the menu, ordered drinks, app and main courses!! Highly recommend and let the kitchen. Take care of you!!!

Stopped here while in town for business. The table side guacamole was very good. Even my non guacamole eating husband gobbled it up. He also had the shrimp empanadas, which he said were excellent. We each ordered 2 tacos, and these were ok. My husband said the chipotle slaw on one of his tacos was too spicy, even for him.... More

What great place in Arlington Hgts. Fresh guacamole made tables side. Good size portions and friendly staff. Not too big and the bar area is manageable to watch a game. Fresh is the word here.

We stopped in with a party of 7 without reservations. They quickly set up a table for us and made us feel at home. The service was good and we all enjoyed our dinners and drinks. We had shrimp/steak fajitas, enchiladas (de hongos- spinach) and carne asada burritos. Spicing was good and prices were reasonable. We also had Platanos Maduros... More

Went with a group of friends expecting very fresh well made food. Received a shrimp empanadas plate that was still frozen in the center. 1) frozen shrimp empanadas are not delicious 2) this proves it isn't made fresh but either purchased or pre made. Not worth the price and time it takes in my opinion.

Our group is always up for trying new places, Mago Grill was our choice and a good one it was. The waitstaff was great. Attentive with out crowding. We started with guacamole made right at our table, with whatever we wanted in it. Dinners ordered were, steak with one of 5 mole sauces, ( cooked to perfection) shrimp tacos, enchiladas... More

Delicious from start to finish...Chips with 3 types of salsas...Tamales with a different twist (delicious) and end your meal with Tres Leches cake (never had a more delicious dessert!!)
