It was such a beautiful day that we wanted to pick a place where we could sit outside and have some snacks and drinks. Mixto has a nice outdoor seating area where you can enjoy a view of the Cape Fear River and people watch also. We ordered the chips and dips trio. It comes with homemade queso dip, fresh guacamole and a really great summer corn salsa with fresh cilantro. It was fabulous. For lunch we had the chorizo meatball sandwich and one of the burritos. Both were very good but my husband especially enjoyed the chorizo sandwich served with home style fries/home fries with a spicy salsa. It was a nice lunch and we can always count on Mixto to change up their menu and to deliver food that is very fresh and certainly never frozen or boring.

Ok...if conventional wisdom is right, you would think that if you own a restaurant, planning for Saturday night would be of key importance...likewise, when you plan on going to a dining establishment and spending money, you expect some planning to exist...apparently for this establishment, that isn't the case...how is it possible that on a chilly night in May that menu items can't be served because the key ingredients are "out"?...why is it that the wait staff can vanish...are there not enough of them or are they distracted to the point of disappearance?...this place is a place to get average food, average drinks, less than average service and an overall experience which is similar to a Denny's but at a premium price...no more $ there for us...

This isn't a typical Mexican place. They have very unique tacos. I had one shrimp, one barbacoa and one tuna taco. They were very good, but I can understand how they might not appeal to the masses. I was with a tequila snob and he loved the margaritas.

We discovered Mixto shortly after they opened and have gone there a bunch of times. The last couple times we're beginning to notice the tacos getting a bit scimpy and the bathrooms are, well, pretty gross. If you don't have to pee and are looking for a pretty good meal, give it a go. I think we're going to move along on the mixto scene after 3 years of going going down.

Went there when they first opened, we loved it, then menu changed, and so did cook,and food quality went down, had people from out of town,waitress was so rude we ended up asking if she was alright, horrible meal, thought we would try one more time and we got same waitress, just plain lazy,they all set around texting on cell phone and talking at a back booth. Menu changed again, even worse. I guess would be ok if you just want drinks an appetizers and did not have to use bathroom, filthy!
