“YUMMY!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

Best vermicelli in a town known for its great vermicelli! Food is well prepared by a courteous staff. It's not in a typical business area, which helps give it a great atmosphere. Visit the Koshare Indian Museum, then visit here...it's only a few blocks away!

“The place to be for Mexican food in La Junta!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013 via mobile

Mexico City is the most happening Mexican food joint in La Junta!! The owners and staff are friendly, willing to recommend a dish and overall great people. The food is great, portions plentiful and ambiance is reminiscent of a Mexican resort! My only complaint, they are often so busy, unless you have reservations - you may be in for a wait. The sopapillas are worth it though!

“Terrible service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

I found plastic in my food that I almost choked on! When I told the waitress she said, "what do you want me to do about it?" I asked for a manager and the waitress ignored me. 15 minutes later I had to hunt down a manager to make a complaint! Very poor people, service and buisness!

“Wonderful Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

It's off the beaten path in a residential neighborhood but worth the trip. Lots of great food and the price was terrific. The service was friendly and helpful. Order the sopapilla for dessert and you won't be disappointed, but you might want to share. It's the size of a dinner plate!

“Love the food and patio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

I went to La Junta for a ride and stopped for dinner. Just happened to come across Mexico City Cafe. The food was excellent (and an excellent value) and eating out on the patio made a very relaxing stop. Plan to go back down with some friends and spend a little more time.
