Mazatlan is a Lincoln favorite. It accomplishes that by serving everyone's favorites. For us, that meant the giant margarita , chicken fajitas, three enchiladas, and a taco salad with ranch dressing. Everything was delicious ... Clean plate club!

This is our favorite Mexican food place. We like that they have a senior menu so we can get smaller portions and don't have to waste food. The servers are always friendly and helpful. My husband almost always has the beef burrito on the senior menu and I usually have the taco or tostado on the senior menu. I will... More

We were hesitant to go to this restaurant because of all the bad reviews about bad/grumpy service. However, every staff person we encountered during our visit was very friendly and attentive -- the service was great! The chips were crispy and warm, just like we like them, and the salsa was excellent. The margaritas were good. I ordered an enchilada... More

A group of us took my mom out for lunch for her birthday. Three of us ordered a taco salad. This was the WORSE TACO SALAD I have ever had. Soggy lettuce over soggy hamburger and not much else on the salad. Food items ordered by others looked okay otherwise I would have given a lower rating. The service was... More

The margaritas are the best around. The food is good. The problem is the service is not good. The last couple times we have been there including tonight the service was terrible. Servers are not friendly, they make you feel like you are putting them out to get a water refill or more salsa. A smile and a friendly face... More

This is my go-to Mexican restaurant here in Lincoln. Been around for a long time. Very quick service even when it gets busy, good food, excellent customer service. All you can eat chips and salsa that's brought to your table.

the salsa and chips were home-made, and delicious. So were our dinners and drinks. It was within walking distance of our hotel, which helped, too.

We found Mazatlan by accident - we were traveling to Lincoln during a big University of Nebraska football w/e and couldn't get reservations in the Haymarket area and were placed in the Fairfield adjacent to the strip mall where Mazatlan is located. We were hungry and tired one night and not wanting to drive far so checked it out. The... More
