Stopped at Mixto for a quick sip and bite. While we didn't stay very long, the margarita's were great, especially paired with the warm tortilla chips and fresh quac. Service was friendly and prompt and for what we ordered, prices were very reasonable.

We went to Mixto for lunch. The restaurant is right on the Wilmington Riverwalk and has outdoor seating which is nice when the weather cooperates. They do allow dogs in the sidewalk seating area. The menu is Mexican-based but with an original twist. For example,...More
