I have been searching for and consistently disappointed by Mexican restaurants in the area. They all tend to be virtually the same. Same menu, same sides, same everything. What an incredible change of pace going to Mago. Located in the heart of downtown Arlington Heights...More

Mago has a fun, modern feel - not quite upscale but not . All the food tastes fresh and authentic and very flavorful. My favorite were the shrimp tacos! I had heard a lot about the table side guacamole but I was disappointed...it lacked flavor...More

Ordered tacos and moles coconut sauce with jalapeno with chicken. Food was bland and just passable. Had two margaritas but they were too sweet. Atmosphere was like a oasis on highway. Not recommended if you like good quality Mexican food.
