We had a group of 11 and arrived when the establishment opened on a Saturday (12 noon). We did NOT make reservations so they needed to make seating arrangements for our party which took approximately 5-8 minutes (acceptable). We received our H2O, chips & salsa promptly as beverage orders were taken. Again, this too was timely. Orders were taken (we... More

My husband and I went with another couple for dinner. We had no reservation. There was an hour wait on a Friday night. We had drinks at the bar and waited. They are known for their Margarita. Try the top shelf. The food was great and the portions are generous. Try the chicken fajitas!

I had a business lunch today and must say that the beef enchiladas, chips with salsa and Margarita were fantastic! Service was outstanding as usual. This place is highly recommended!

I had went to Mexican Village a few years ago and fondly remembering it being one of my favorite Mexican restaurants. It is not like I remember it, my enchiladas had more cheese than meat, it was almost a half inch thick coating of cheese. If you like cheese then this may be your place.

Sister establishment of the original in Mexicantown ( near the Ambassador Bridge), with the same outstanding food and prices. Be prepared to wait a bit on the weekend, but worth it for sure. Also be prepared to eat - the portions are huge, but you can always take a box home. :-)

I was completely unimpressed. Standard Mexican-ish fare, completely unexciting. There are other better, cheaper Mexican/Latin restaurants in the immediate area. And more authentic.

Great value for the money, and good food. We always come here when we are in town. Cold beer and fun, family atmosphere.
