First of all, I have been going to Mexican Connection for YEARS! It was on my top five for years. However, over the past year or so it has unfortunately gone down hill. Parking has always been tricky during track season. The first turn off...More

I ate in the bar, which was very dark. The service was good, but the food was mediocre at best. The hot salsa wasn't at all hot, and the rice was completely tasteless. The prices were high for Mexican food.
