I had takeout, but loved the colorful furniture and decor. The chips were fresh, good rice and beans, so so chile relleno.

THIS is THE place to go if you like Mexican!! I loved everything I had to eat and the Margarita was HUGE!!! There were about 15 of us for dinner and everyone LOVED the food and drinks and we can hardly wait to go there when we go back to Indy- or whenever we find another El Meson!

Just visited with 4 toddlers. Staff was fabulous. They brought out the kids meals asap. The rest was a bit slow to arrive but we didn't care. The food was above average. I would say typical Mexican.

This Mexican restaurant has nothing too special to it. My husband and I have gone here a couple of times. The food is okay. The bathrooms are a little dirty. The staff is kind. Overall just another Mexican restaurant.

I ate here for lunch as a get together for one of the ladies at work. We arrived about 11:45 and were seated promptly. We had a group of about 15. Service was fast and courteous. The building is actually a former Chi Chi's restaurant, a national Tex-Mex chain that closed years ago. Much of the decor was the same.... More

There were three of us that ate here and everyone of us got sick. We all had food that had ground beef in it. My food was so cold that I couldn't eat it.

Whether I go to the Greenwood location or this one on Michigan Rd, The food and salsa is always great. I had been to other Mexican restaurants and came back to El Meson for the great food. I was rewarded. The chips are hot. The Burrito Mexicanos with shredded beef was great. My wife had the grilled chicken Quesadilla for... More
