We had no complaints after visiting this restaurant for lunch after our flight from CT. Queso dip, quesadillas, soft tacos and salad were all delicious. Server was very friendly and quick.

This is our favorite Tex-Mex place to eat in Denton. The food is great as well as the service. If you can make it before 4PM you get the lunch prices as well as some caso for your chips. The service is always friendly and usually pretty fast.

Food is good, and service has always been good as well. Very busy at lunch but the wait was only about 5 minutes. Food came out quickly after being ordered. The queso that came free with the chips and salsa was a nice touch.

Best Mexican restaurant in Denton. The service is always pleasant, accommodating, and quick. They used to get my orders wrong, but that hasn't happened in ages. The salsa is homemade and yummy. The queso is also good and I'm assuming is made there as well. Flavors are clear and strong, though I always ask for a side order of fresh... More

The atmosphere and décor were relaxing and the server was very attentive and polite. I enjoyed my breakfast and coffee while I quietly reviewed my emails and news (no WIFI, had to create a hotspot from my phone). I was not adventurous this morning so I just had the huevos rancheros plate which included refried beans and tortillas. Oh, and... More

The wife, daughter, and I ate lunch at Mazatlan Restaurant and were impressed at the good Mexican food and service. The wife had tamales and a crispy beef taco, the daughter had the Chimichanga, and I had the spicy tomatilla smothered beef and Bean burrito. We all agreed that it was very good food and we will definitely eat there... More

My husband I have been eating at Mazatlan since our college days. The food and service are always excellent. I always save room for the pralines! Love this place. It's one of the best in Texas, imho.

My husband and I love this place. It's a little hidden back on University Drive/380, but I love that they can always seat us immediately. They have great food, attentive servers, and free queso at lunch time!
