I've had plenty better... – The service was VERY slow and hardly handled English at all. The food was typical of the Mexico restaurants - very bland. Perhaps that is what Richmonders like? I honestly do not understand the over 9 average this place gets as it is really not that great. Try Don Jose's or El Paso and you'll certainly rethink the 9+ rating for the Mexico. The atmosphere was nice and the seating was comfortable enough though parking was a bit hard to find. PLenty of inside seating for family groups, but I wouldn't subject my friends to the blandness of the food or the exceedingly slow service.
Mexico drips authenticity like a real taco should. – The Scene
Comfy booths, a separate smoking section and great Mexican food make you feel like you're in Mexico. The food comes out fast and hot--right after you've already inhaled a basket of chips and salsa. You did come prepared to eat, right? What to wear, who to bring: Anything goes here. Shorts and T-shirts are fine, yet you wouldn't feel uncomfortable in khakis. Bring the family, because Mexican is cheap (the chips go a long way). Huge sodas with free refills will keep the kids quiet.
Aside from the free chips and salsa, the fajitas are flavorful and cooked appropriately (order a side of rice if you go in for that). Try the chicken soft tacos, built with just enough onion and guacamole. The quesadillas, the Mexican food equivalent to a grilled cheese, are also noteworthy.
Mexico es muy bien – Not only is this the best Mexican restaurant, It's the best restaurant period. The food is wonderful, the service is great, and it's CHEAP. I eat there at least once a week!
Killer Arros Con Pollo – Great service. Always seated and chips and salsa brought promptly. Staff faces never change. Try the Arros con Pollo or California Burrito - Chicken!
hmmm! – Everytime we go to Richmond I make it a point to go to Mexico Restaurant. Food Great but the staff do make you feel as if you may be bothering them.
I usually have to chase them down and ask for another beer or salsa. But, the food makes up for the lacking service.
