Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The chicken is tender and juicy, the mixed red peppers burst with flavours, and the ambience is welcoming. And everything is fresh! Have only tried chicken and mixed peppers in various formats but none disappointed.

Food was great, really nice and decent prices. Staff were exceptional - chef even came out to chat about chili sauce - and they have amazing chili sauce. Sadly only in Southampton for one night or I would have gone back the next night. Will...definitely be going there if back in Soton. Wish there were more places like this around!More

Forget about the Casa Brazil, the real Greek, L`Osteria etc. MEXIFUN is THE FOOD to HAVE! Fresh fast food, made with care and true joy for the ingredients and for the craft of the perfect taco flavor! This is the best spot ever for any...mexican inspired cuisine! You will not regret tasting each of the items on the menu! Believe me - ambrosia!More

We went in this little place as we were passing by looking for somewhere small and independent to try. The food was all fresh and lovely, Burrito portions were huge and we were not left hungry. Authentic feed, its a tiny place with not many...tables so hopefully one day they can extend it a bit or move as i now worry i wont be able to get a seat.More

When I say this place is the best in Southampton, I have ordered from here 3 times in the last week and every time im getting the pulled pork burrito and I mean it is INCREDIBLE. My other half tried the veggie quesadillas and she...was drooling. Had to message them on Insta to say how fantastic it was. The owner is also super lovely. Would highly recommend. And definitely try that pork burrito, 5 starMore

Dodgy part of town making the food and attention to detail really impressive. Burrito with pulled pork was very good indeed and the rice bowl with chicken was excellent although the chicken was a bit plasticky. Well done guys we will be back

Brilliant food, brilliant service. Super friendly owners and a cracking menu. Superb gluten free knowledge and care with so much choice - corn based tacos, nachos with a variety of delicious combinations. This is only a small place, four eat-in tables and also take-away but...this is def worth a visit! Thoroughly recommend to all (and especially to the coeliac community who can feel v safe here!)More

Excellent. Went on Saturday night when the chain restaurants in West Quay were heaving, was a very good decision. Having been on a tour of Mexico last year this place holds up to the restaurants there, the tacos especially are superb. It’s a very casual...place with a few small tables so be mindful of that, but it’s rated so highly for a reason.More

Don’t understand all the 5 star reviews. In fact, as I reread them, I believe the owner/friends are posting their own high reviews. It’s carry out Mexican food with limited menu with so so prices along with limited drink choices, limited seating and no available...bathroom. I tried the rice bowl. Good amount of meat, but not the fresh veggies I’m used to on my Mexican food. Didn’t understand the slaw. Wouldn’t be surprised if a 5 star review rebutting my opinion immediately gets posted after this by the owner/friend.More

We were staying the night in Southampton for a cruise and wanted a good restaurant for dinner. We saw Mexifun was highly rated so we walked over and weren’t disappointed. The food was great, the portions were good and the price was reasonable.

Dropped by to grab a bite for takeout. I ordered two rice bowls, one chicken and one pork. Both were presented in the same style and looked really delicious. Plenty of salad and meat as well as rice and beans . Ordering was easy and...service was quick. Food was clearly fresh and remained fresh when I unpacked the order at home. Both were equally delicious and I would be happy to order these againMore

I expected more after seeing all the 5 star reviews. This is really a takeout restaurant - no bathrooms or even tap water available if you decide to eat at 1 of the 4 tables. We ordered rice bowls - chicken and pork. The toppings...were sectioned and displayed nicely with good size meat serving. Wish it included mixed vegetables over the slaw. The burrito and tacos ordered by other tables looked delicious. I was bothered by the overflowing trash can between my table and the register to which the hostess kept adding more garbage. I would visit again to try other options, but would take back to my hotel to enjoy with sangria or a beer.More
