We stopped in here for lunch. It was not busy and we were hungry! Well, we got seated then sat for 15-20 minutes and we're totally ignored, so we got up and went somewhere else!

Stopped in for lunch on our way through town...Everything still great, except there seems to be a smell as you approach the bathrooms... Good thing I went AFTER we ate. I had the shrimp and avacado salad, it was fresh and wonderful.

Drinks were good. We ordered the premium margaritas. The food was typical Tex-Mex. Unfortunately nothing spectacular that would say to me, "I have to go there."

Good, friendly, fast service but the food was just ok. Business lunch, I ordered chicken burrito, associate ordered shrimp, chicken, and steak fajitas. Chips and salsa were good. Prices reasonable. Overall look of the place, it needs some maintenance. I would look for something better.

I took my wife here for a date last month. We both enjoy authentic Mexican food and we had a coupon for $5 off an entree. I ordered a steak and shrimp dish. I was surprised when my shrimp came with claws and everything. I...More

This was the crummiest mexican joint that I've been in. The salsa/chile tastes like pickle relish, the enchiladas bland and the sangria contained a backstroking fly--yes, a bug was trying out for the Olympics in the cocktail. The whole experience required over an hour and...More

Many years ago, in the state of Jalisco in Mexico, the land was dotted with farms growing the blue agave plant-the plant crucial for making tequila. There were inns scattered among the farms, inns that had stables, restaurants, bars, and were a place where the workers from the farms would come together, a place where they could be comfortable together. That comfort-that togetherness-was exactly what the Ruiz's were aiming for when they opened El Meson Restaurante Mexicano over twenty years ago at Hamilton Place. In early 2009, a second El Meson Restaurante Mexicano opened in Hixson. The new restaurant is at 248 Northgate Mall Dr., Suite 114 in the Northgate Mall area and seats approximately 250 people. It too, hearkens back to the comfortable atmosphere and family cooking that have made the original such a favorite.
