Just a random review for my readers! Mexican Village is a favorite spot of mine that always satisfies me. I've been going there for years. The menu is basic mexi-amercan food. I always get the same thing every time because I'm a creature of habit; however it is perfect everytime. I recommend the chicken burrito with chicken pepper sauce. People... More

Not Mexican food at all. Everything you order taste like cumin. Salsa tastes like plain tomato sauce. Ragu would make a better dipping sauce than what they offer. Poor customer service. A total waste of time and money,

I don't like to down grade anyone or place but I definitely would not recommend this restaurant. We traveled from Canada heading back home to Ohio and decided to try this place. Being of Mexican decent, this is an "American" version of Mexican food. Not one Mexican person there and their food did not taste very good. Their rice tasted... More

The staff was okay, but the food was not good at all. The dishes we tried were either too spicy or no flavor at all.

I think Paradiso has much better and fresher food. Service is quick at Mexican Village but the food isn't so great. Seems very packaged.

I first ate hear about 1970, so I may be a bit sentimental. It's a fine old school family Mexican restaurant. Everything here is tasty and they have the recipes down. It's good value for the money as well.

Don't bother going here. Ordered a beef burrito with brown gravy and it latterly came with brown gravy... You know, the kind you would make for mashed potatoes. Gross. It's not worth the money. Drive down the road to Paradiso and wait it line.

For over 40 years we have been going there and always have recieved great service. It hard to believe but it's true, you would think that the training of new hiring or just picking the wrong employee would eventually catch up and hire a bad employee. NO this is the real thing. The food is 5 star as well, chips... More
