This is a happy restaurant with a friendly staff and a good array of mostly Southwestern/Mexican food. You can count on everything being tasty and ample in quantity, and it helps that the staff is always cheerful and easy to deal with. Best of all, you can dine there on not more than a fast food budget if you like,... More

Three of us came into this quaint restaurant up a set of stairs (which may be an issue-but didn't see ADA access but does not mean it is not there-call). The atmosphere is eclectic and the menu had entree's I was familiar in name with for the ingredients however served differently for me, which frankly I loved. I had the... More

We've been coming to Mossfire Grill for over ten years, but it has been a while since we visited. I really used to love the empanadas, but I forgot that they changed the preparation a few years back. I certainly miss the larger chunks of chicken that were in them. The puree just isn't the same. It was nice for... More

This was our first visit to Mossfire Grill - I had heard people mention it for years but we never got there. We had a very nice time. It is located just off of Five Points - this neighborhood is great for strolling. There are a bunch of good restaurants within just a few blocks. It is very dark and... More

Visited with family and friends for lunch. Had the hummus with deep fried flat bread. This is the best hummus around! Fresh cut corn on the cob, onions and peppers adorn the top of the hummus. I could have just eaten this for lunch. Amazing! Around the table were chicken enchiladas, grilled chicken sandwiches, quesadillas and tempeh tacos. All was... More

So let's be honest - I love a good margarita. That's exactly what you will find here, especially on Monday and Wednesday nights with deals on this delicious drink. The drinks are great and the food, while not outstanding, is certainly better than your average Mexican joint. Stop in for the cocktails and have a bite. I guarantee you'll make... More

Great little Tex-Mex menu. Very creative, with lots of options for vegetarians. 3 of my party had the tacos - the best were the Tuna, the Carnita's and Calamari. I had the Spinach and Chick Quesadilla. Excellent taste and large portions. The guacamole was fresh. For dessert, we shared a slice of the Key Lime Pie. Very light, and not... More

This place is fantastic, the food is awesome, drink specials are on point and it's in a great location. The service can be a little shaky at times but 85% of the time they do a great job.

Have always been a fan of Mossfire Grill. Cool place, great patio, interesting menu (several good choices for a vegetarian). Food is still really good (though I don't like the change in how they prepare the plantains). While service has never been a standout quality of Mossfire, it wasn't terrible. However, during our most recent trip there they set a... More

Delicious food. The fish specials are always on point. The crab cakes are great. And the burrito.....is huge! Mossfire is a must do if your visiting and been on my rotation for years.
