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

Made a reservation here for a bachelorette party this past weekend. The food was amazing!!! Most of our table had tacos and all of the delicious sides. Everyone was very Satisfied. The server was excellent, very nice and very knowledgeable about the food and the area. The food was out in a relativity short amount of time in the meantime... More

What more can you want. Quacamole at table side, and if you tell them to bring you the different types of mole, they will. They help you pare up with the meats they offer. Drinks are out of this world and dessert, OMG. Try it and see. You will love it like we do.

Took a co-worker to lunch at Mago and enjoyed a wonderful lunch in this upscale casual gem. The 3 salsas with chips are tasty, and the burrito is the best around. Couldn't finish it all, so it was lunch the following day too. Highly recommended!

I've visited this hotel at least 3 times, and it is always good. Although I was surprised on their Fajitas presentation, it was not sizzling like I am used. The mole enchilada was very good. My 10 year old loved the chicken Quesadillas

My family went here for the first time. Our waitress was great. The food just plain ordinary nothing special and the drinks were small and overly priced. Bland food. Bill was over $100 for a family of four. Cut that in half and your a bit closer to what it should have cost but that might still be to much.

Ok, so here is the bottom line. Our grandsons love it! Broad menu of typical Mexican selections. Everything we have tried has been good. We are repeat customers and typically get guacamole prepared table side, steak and chicken fajitas, pitcher of margaritas and dessert (the rice pudding s good). Our grandsons (ages 8,6,4,2) love the chips & dips, the guac... More
