“We really loved the Mexican Corner before they moved!!”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

We had eaten at the Mexican Corner several times prior to their move and absolutely loved it! Their new location is better, but the menu had changed, and is quite a bit more expensive. We would not have minded the price increases if the food was the same, but it was not as good. (Maybe the new grills are not as seasoned or they have a new chef?). The Margaritas are strong, as is the Sangria, which are both terrific. The new Mole sauce is nowhere near as good as the old. This would still be a very good Mexican restaurant IF we had not eaten there before, so we know how good they can be!! The waitress was a little forgetful, but the manager and owner was attentive and very nice. I hope they can get back to the quality of food prior to the move as we really like the owners, and it really was the best Mexican food we had ever had!

Dear Laura,

Thank you very much for your loyalty as a customer and for taking the time to let us know about your recent experience. Customer feedback is the best tool for us to improve and our Executive Chef has been has been informed about it. We still have the same recipe for the Mole sauce, however it is being checked to make sure that it has the same quality as before.

If I can be of any assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.

Once again, thank you very much and we hope to see you soon again...

Sincerely,

“Trying out the new location”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

We were huge fans of the Mexican corner and wanted to show our support since they moved locations, however we were very disappointed to find nothing from their old menu came with the move. The prices have increased significantly making an entree on average $30.00! We went in a group and ordered an assortment of items off the menu and were highly disappointed in what was presented. We tried the stuffed chile which was similar to what the offered at their old location however the price increased to $25 and they no longer serve it with sides of rice and beans as they used to, it is now a single pepper served alone on the plate. We also ordered a taco and for $12 in included a single taco once again with no sides and a very small portion of fish, not like the plate of tacos you used to get at the old location. Hopefully they will bring back some of the old menu options because they were excellent and offered great value, until then we will not be retuning.

Dear customer,

Thank you very much for your support at the new location...

Your feedback is greatly appreciated and to show you how much we value you as a customer, we decided to bring back all the favorite dishes from our old menu. Initially they were going to be in the lunch menu only, but we have decided to include them for dinner as well. We hope to see you soon again so that you can continue to experience the same amazing flavors as before...

If I can be of any help, please do not hesitate to contact me...

Sincerely,

Pepe Barajas - GM

“Cornucopia at Mexican Corner”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

We just got back from Whistler's Food and Wine festival, Cornucopia. So, I realize this was a special event, however I just have to say the dinner we had at Mexican Corner was OUTSTANDING!!! I am so excited about their new location because it also means we can ski down for lunch! And we always ski down for lunch because the crowds on the hill are just too crazy.
Mexican Corner...here we come! Thanks for moving!
p.s. Great job on the decor! Really love the beautiful artwork.
