The atmosphere when sitting outside is nice. If you just go for a drink it's fine. This is the second time I ate there and there will not be a third time. I got a chicken chimichanga and after my third bite I received a...More

authentic Mexican food at reasonable prices. The fajitas, chimichanga, and chili rellenos (poblano peppers) are excellent and worth the visit. The decor is ok with few frills but very comfortable atmosphere. The outside patio (previous visits) is also a plus.

The food is good, not great. The outside patio is what you need to visit El Meson for. On a beautiful spring or summer evening, the ambience is like no other around Schaumburg. Make sure you sit out back.

Ordered a "tamale and burrito combo plate". The tamale was bigger than the burrito. The tamale was flat. The beans had no cheese and were not retried. The rice and the tamale had no flavor. Will not repeat as a lunch place.

I have frequented this restaurant for several years, it has often been a favorite with great food and prices. However, I do NOT recommend eating outdoors. After a recent trip to the restaurant, my friend and I both got eaten alive by mosquitoes. I am...More
