Our waiter was very slow with the drinks to start with. Salads/soups were on the table less than 2 minutes when the entrees came out. Waiter asked if we wanted fresh ground pepper, we said... More

Half cordon blue sandwich & French onion soup were wonderful. Wife had farm tacos with corn tortillas that were the best corn tortillas she has ever had. Alma, our waitress, was the best server that we have had in many months. Ask for her.

They chopped all the ingredients in very small pieces and they mixed all together in a way that was almost impossible to detect the ingredients of the salad, and the aspect of the salad was like chopped chicken feed....

Dined: December 1, 2016 My wife and I ate at Mimi’s while visiting in Mesa for a few days. Although they are all over the US we had never heard of it. We were pleasantly pleased with the experience. A “comfort food” sort of place. The staff were all very friendly, and I give a shout out to our waiter... More

We took my mother here for lunch. My mother is elderly and walker dependent and the staff was extremely accommodating and helpful in getting her seated. Our server was very helpful and efficient. There is something for everyone on the menu, and our food was excellent and the portions were generous. Very pleased, and we will definitely be back.

Thank jdjay
