Great food....excellent service...fresh food! I've eaten here with friends or family since they opened! The menu is packed with choices and good descriptions! I always ask for the brown salsa and cheese dip for the chips.

We eat here regularly. The staff is friendly and the food is good. The chips are fantastic, better than some of the other places. Seating is plentiful and even when busy we rarely have to wait more than a few minutes which is good because there is virtually no waiting area. Only complaints is I do wish they have slightly...

This resturant is an old stand by. We have been eating here for 25 years. The servers are very nice and the overall feeling of the place is welcoming. The food is very good and plentiful. The guacamole is especially good and the nachos are a crowd pleaser. The whole menu is great. Friday and Saturday can be crowded so... More

Terrible service this time. Seats are not secure and dangerous. Waiter did not know drink menu and was put out to go get one. He only had one other table when we sat. We had to ask for more salsa even though the bowl was empty. When he brought more he dumped the salsa on my husband, accidentally. Then he... More

I have lunch here almost once a month after church. The food is delicious, the waiters are very helpful and the atmosphere is very relaxed. If you're on the south side of Atlanta, you won't be disappointed if you include it in your plans.

Two days ago I ate at the other Mexican restaurant in Jackson and reviewed it as better than average and better than Mesquite because it has a bigger bar. I take that back. I ate at Mesquite tonight, and all four of us were very happy with our meals. I had a low carb shocked with grilled veggies dish, similar... More

Friendly staff that works hard to please, however the food is just average in my opinion. Beef dishes come standard with ground beef, as shredded beef is not an option unless you want to order steak. This is not uncommon in most Americanized Mexican restaurants in the south. The chicken dishes are pretty good and the salsa is tasty. The... More
