Don't judge a book by its cover. Mangos has very good food and nice staff. The Chili Relleno was one of best I've ever had. Chips and salsa were tasty, I know how hard can it be to mess up chips and salsa. Well I've seen it done before. The rice was a bit dry, beans were good. Husband had... More

First time. Service was quick. Food came quick. Stuffed jalapenos were okay. Chili relleno was very good. Lots of food. Chips and salsa were a nice start

The food here is amazing and the atmosphere is interesting to say the least. If you go take up the great lunch specials they have be prepared to wait for a table, food, drinks, and the check. They don't have enough staff for the demand this place has during lunch.

The location and external appearance might discourage people from eating here, but it is truly a diamond in the rough. The chips and salsa, guac, and fajitas were all perfect!! There could not be anything that would improve upon the food. The service was also very good. I will definitely easy here again!

An update to my previous review, the food is still good, but regardless of whether they are busy or not, the service the last several times we have gone has been terribly slow. It often takes 10 minutes to get our drinks, and the food is super slow to get as well. Seems like the same people are working here,... More

We go here frequently.......for dinner and supper. The Mexican plates are real Mexican, not Tex-Mex. Their chips and sauce are the best in town. Now that they've been discovered, we're careful to time our visits because they get busy. We go either between 11-11:30 for lunch, for example, to avoid a line or after 1:00. They have a great deal... More

Driving by this place you may not stop...and that would be a mistake! Their Mexican food is authentic, and really good. Not that it's fine dining, but its great food at almost unbelievably low prices. If you go for lunch specials it's cheaper that fast food!!!!

We stopped there after a week in Texas where we ate incredible Mexican food. This was equally as good. Much further from the border, but you'd never know it. Legit Mexican food!
