Perfect highway stop – super fast service! perfect off the highway Mex food.....half par...but perfect
taco bueno on roids – Saturday night was rough....the entire staff was miserable...not a smile in the place.
I hope the cook was happy, although the food said he was not.
No teamwork, I guess that is why they were so miserable. Dont expect anyone to be pleasant and dont hesitate to get your own tea or chips.
Bad restaraunt for a party or family event!!! – They advertise the take large groups. We tried to make reservations after my youngest daughter's college graduation in Denton. They told us we couldn't make reservations, but that it wouldn't be problem since we planned it for 4:30 in the afternoon. My older daughter called the manager around 3:00 PM and talked with him about our group (coming from Denton) to arrive around 4:30PM. He said there was no problem. My daughter got there around 3:30 to set up balloons and the staff told she couldn't do anything until everyone arrive. If they had been busy I could understand this but there were very few people in the place at that time. They finally agreed to let her set up the balloons (after asking HOW many balloons we had). The manager had asked how many people we expected and my daughter told him about 25. During the party the manager came out several time and watched us as if he was counting to see if in fact there were 25 people. I found out after leaving the party and checking my cell phone that we had a guest who came to the restaraunt and inquired at the desk about the graduation party and was told they didn't know what she was talking about. The guest left thinking the party had been cancelled or she went to the wrong location. The food was good and I must say the wait staff were very helpful and took good care of us. The management and the front desk staff were not!!! Don't go here is you have an event for your family-they will make a happy event stressful and make you wish you had chosen another restaraunt for your party. (They also told we couldn't put confetti on the tables because they would have to clean it up!!!) Sherry Shafer
No stars – I went to the bathroom and saw a server come out of a stall (the bathroom really stunk like caca at that point) and go straight out without washing his hands. My wife went to the bathromm and went into a stall that was unlocked but there was big fat gordita that worked there sitting on the john eating some chips and salsa while she had a BM. The fish was old and tasted nasty.
My Favorite Mexican Food In Town – Ive been coming to mercado jaurez for several years now and loving it every time! Anytime I want to impress people from out of town I take them here for the tasty tacos, chimichangas, and chile relenos. If you come during the lunch hour be sure to ask for Flora otherwise they have like 100 servers in the evening. This place is not quiet, but it does have a pleasant decor with the trees and lights. I even had a friend who had their wedding dinner here. Be aware of the wait on Friday's and Saturday's; normally 10-20 minutes for parties of 4. I would compare the food here to Don Pablo's or On the Border.
Pros: the salsa and chips, the margaritas are stout and the food is great
Cons: its kinda crowded and Don Pablos has much better cheese dip
Not a Tex-Mex Flavor – Great tasting chips, but that's about it. Tortilla holder smelled of dirty rag. More of Traditional Mexican food and not Tex-Mex. If you are looking for that south Texas flavor this is not the place to go.
Going Downhill – We have eaten here for years. You always know what you are going to get (food wise and atmosphere). It is family owned and operated and their theory is . . . Why change something when it is working. We really enjoy everything about this place. We strongly suggest it. Just remeber it is cash only.
