“Nothing special...”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Both the frozen and on the rocks margaritas lacked any flavor whatsoever. Food was OK. Service OK once we got someone to start waiting on us. Large menu though, with plenty of choices. Prices were good. Very popular among the t-shirt and jeans, baseball cap wearing crowd. Probably won't go back.

“Slow service”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

My daughter and I stopped in to the Mexican Cafe on a recent Sunday afternoon. We sat ourselves outdoors even though the only seating on the patio are small picnic tables. Being over 50, I like to have a back on my seat. (The inside is set up sort of like a sports bar.) The service was rather slow but we did get very nice drinks (peach margarita & Mexican breeze) to have while we waited. When our food finally arrived both of our plates looked exactly alike even though I ordered mini flautas and she ordered mini chimichangas. The food was decent and prices were reasonable.

“World-class Margaritas”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

I was worried about the re-located Mexican Cafe...how could a sequel ever stand up to the original? But then, I told myself the truth. It's the Margaritas I go to Mexican Cafe for, not the setting. The food is nothing to shrug at either. It's fresh, authentic, and reasonable. The staff and surroundings are laid-back, and the margaritas make everything even more mellow! Don't miss the guacamole or the stuffed avocado. Both are house specialties. If you don't care for rice or beans with your meal, you can deduct $2.50 from its price. All in all, there's no place like Mexican Cafe!

“Fun atmosphere”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

Fun atmosphere. Interesting avocados on the menu, e.g. Stuffed avocados. Fabulous. stuffed jalapenos also very good. Other things similar to what you would find in a mexican restaurant. Same thing for prices. I liked the food at Sin Fronteras much better, but this place had better atmosphere.
