The food was really great, I suggest the Stevens special. The problem I had was that the service was not very good. We waited for our drinks for along time once we sat down and we waited for our check for a good 25 minutes. The food was 5 star worthy, but the service was terrible.

The flan was home made and wonderful; the salsa was very good; the cheesedip was good. We had the chicken chimichanga lunch special, the specials were still available in early afternoon, and it was very tasty. Good beans and rice; and the chicken with cheese rice dish was very good. Great guac.

I love this place. I have been coming here since college 10 years ago. The margaritas are great. Definitely try the Steven's Special.

Just left this place. Took my son for his Christmas Present. Of course he wanted Fajitas. Who else thinks they should come out steaming so everyone goes "WOW"?. Not even close. So many Green Peppers could hardly find the meat. Also, had to ask 3 times for chesse. The server actually brought cheese dip and charged me. Not to mention... More

This is a large, clean restaurant that has good service and great Mexican food. The guacamole is amazing as well as the fajitas. We also had beef chimis that were excellent. The beef was chopped steak, not ground beef and was very savory. This place can easily accommodate large parties. We will definitely eat here again.

There aren't a lot of things I miss about Texas, but good Tex-Mex was one of them. Mexico Viejo fulfills that need. It does look a bit seedy from the outside, but inside it's comfortable and friendly. Good enchiladas are something I always look for in a Mexican restaurant, and they don't disappoint. Another favorite is the chimichanga -- basically... More

We always eat here when we roll through Fayetteville. The salsa is great! They are usually always busy.

I visited my son who attends the University of Arkansas. He took me to Mexico Viejo to eat and it far exceeded my expectations. This is not a fancy restaurant but has that laid back cozy feel to it. It was packed on a Sunday night which showed how popular this place is. I ordered queso dip and guacamole to... More

You can choose from a wide range of traditional Mexican dishes. The service was fast and friendly. There was ample seating and staff was able to handle the crowd.

Everybody was happy with the food, except - ha! - I got the best dish. The chicken fajita quesadillas are terrific. Only negative: The queso is tasty, but too watery.
