Not a huge fan of texmex, I personally prefer west coast style mexican. Not a carne asada taco to be had. But pretty good none-the-less. Stopped in on a Thursday at 1, everything else was packed off 64 so decided to give it a shot. The man ordered a chx/steak quesadilla and I asked if some combo platter designed for... More

Fairly easy to find. Hostess was friendly. Server was good but food wasn't more than just okay. I had a salad with shrimp and frankly not very much variety in contents. Mostly lettuce.

I have patronized this restaurant a number of times. Always good food, good service. Not a fancy place, but a great experience.

Ordered the chicken taco salad and a glass of wine. Good food and even better prices. Salsa is also delicious, fresh. Will eat here again while in the area. Service was fast, attentive, and nice.

The BEST Mexican Food in Richmond, VA. I love this place as the food is plenty, the service is great, and the prices are low.

Simple and typical Mexican restaurant, but food was served quickly as well as drinks, and flavor was great with decent portions

I've never been to Mexico (country) and I don't necessarily know that I've ever had "authentic" Mexican food but Mexico Restaurant seems to fit my mental picture of what good Mexican food is. The standard items (tacos/burritos/enchiladas) are all delicious (although we have not been a fan of the chicken tacos) however for really flavorful dishes go with any of... More

If you are short on time and/or looking for you a place to eat for you and coworkers. Mexico is the place to go. The good is and service is quick. I have never had to wait a long time for a table even around lunch time. Takeout is just as fast.

We tried Mexico one Sunday as it is a favorite of some friends we were visiting. Getting there before it opened...however, they seated the four of us. We had fajitas and Quesadillas. Being from Texas I am in search of a remembered Mexican food flavor and Mexico delivered. Loved my Chicken Quesadillas. Just perfect. Did not try my husbands fajitas.... More
