We had dinner there a few days ago. It's located on RT.47, in a strip mall. Indoor and outdoor seating, weather permitting. Extremely clean, newer building. Give it a try if you haven't already.......it's Wonderful!!

While Mixtec is known for its Margaritas, come here for the dessert! The food is great - all of it, including the tortillas and salsas, made on site - and the blood orange margos are divine - but it's the CAKES made by one of the staff that are really noteworthy - my apologies, friend, on spacing your name!

My wife and I were treated to dinner here for my birthday. We're not big on Mexican food but my brother thought this was worth a try and so four of us went. The service was simply outstanding, the beer cold and the food plentiful and tasty (like a number of other reviewers my wife, too, loved the barbacoa).

Original Margareta so good. see pic. Also, you need to ask about the salsa see pic. Mild, 2 medium, 1 hot. All fresh and delicious. I ordered "off the board" though their menu items are good too. I sat at the bar, met the bartenders, shared some jokes, tricks and laughs. The portobello mushrooms were fresh and tasty. I'll be... More

We love Mixteca! My wife has a go to meal with the Enchiladas. I typically order off the specials board. When they have Barbacoa that's my choice. It's amazing! If you like tender, slow cooked beef that will knock you socks off, get the Barbacoa! Although I have never had a bad meal here. The service has gradually improved over... More

We go here regularly, it's gotten quite busy over the past 2 years- recently renovated, looks better visually than before but food is same! Come early to get a table. Drinks are always excellent- love the mushroom / meat fajitas special. Everything made fresh- you can really taste the difference.

I love Mexteca and obviously others do too. It is alway crowded. Food is so tasty but I think its way overpriced. I would probably go more often but because of the price, I only go when I just need their yummy food

The absolute best margaritas you will ever have. I know it sounds absurd or not possible but each one is hand made to order. No mixes no frozen drinks just tequilla they way it was supposed to be served. Oh and did I mention the food. Yum. We try and order off the special board. This is made special each... More

Yes, it's in a ratty little strip mall on a street veering towards industrial and not in Woodstock's beautiful downtown square, but that doesn't mean it's not worth the trip! After reading so many positive reviews, my boyfriend and I decided to stop in here for an early dinner and I am so glad we did. If I had to... More

So happy to report that our last trip to Mixteca was so much better. The service was really good and had really improved. They have excellent food and good drinks. We were so happy! You must order tamales -- they are the best around.
