With all of the amazing restaurants to be found in Denton, the only thing about Mazatlan that stands out is that it is utterly uninspiring. Absolutely nothing we had was better than mediocre, school cafeteria Mexican food. The chimichanga my wife ordered was stuffed with shredded chicken, but that had no spice or other flavor to it. The cheese sauce... More

We enjoyed our Saturday lunch. My wife had the tortilla soup. She said it had 2 whole chickens in it. She made the rest of us wait until she finished every drop. The complimentary queso was really nice. This place is very consistent and always good. We'll be back when in the mood for great Mexican Food.

We had not been here in a while, but went with a local friend before a HS football game. My wife and I almost always share entrees - particularly fajitas. Their policy is to charge $1.50 for chips & hot sauce if you do not order an entree. We rarely encounter this at other Mexican restaurants around DFW. While the... More

We had no complaints after visiting this restaurant for lunch after our flight from CT. Queso dip, quesadillas, soft tacos and salad were all delicious. Server was very friendly and quick.

This is our favorite Tex-Mex place to eat in Denton. The food is great as well as the service. If you can make it before 4PM you get the lunch prices as well as some caso for your chips. The service is always friendly and usually pretty fast.

Food is good, and service has always been good as well. Very busy at lunch but the wait was only about 5 minutes. Food came out quickly after being ordered. The queso that came free with the chips and salsa was a nice touch.

Best Mexican restaurant in Denton. The service is always pleasant, accommodating, and quick. They used to get my orders wrong, but that hasn't happened in ages. The salsa is homemade and yummy. The queso is also good and I'm assuming is made there as well. Flavors are clear and strong, though I always ask for a side order of fresh... More
