The chips, salsa, and bean dip was very good. I had the chicken mole which was good, but the sauce was a bit sweeter than what I'm used to. The rest of the family enjoyed their entrees as well.

I've only sat at the bar here so I'm not really sure about service. It was awesome for me, the bartender took care of both food and drink. Huge portion sizes. The shrimp dishes rock! Tacos are good too. Clean place. The classic marg is mixed before your eyes, w lots of tangy limes. It's served in a small glass... More

This place is great for lunch. They are always good, fast and fresh! We don't have much time on our break so this is perfect. Even if you have longer the staff is so nice and they let you enjoy yourselves.

Good Food, Good Service - and the best Margarittas ever! Food is typical Mexican - good and fast service. Family owned and operated.

Uninspiring, bland Mexican food. Everything from the beverages to the food was bad. Meal didn't start off too great when our salsa had a 4 inch hair in it. The chili releno was tasteless. The chicken in the enchilada had no flavor, no seasoning. Do yourself a favor and if in the area, go across the street and eat at... More

Family run place with funky decor, nice outside patio and excellent food. Patio fills up quickly in the evening. They offer take-out too.

We stopped by on our way thru the DesMoines area and were pleasantly surprised by this place. We like to eat at places that aren't chain restaurants just to get a unique taste experience. I had some beef burritos with extra cheese melted on top and they were delicious! My wife had chicken quasidillas which she said were very good.... More

Average Mexican food. The service was a little slow and the food took longer than at most Mexican places. The chips were very bland and tasted stale. The meal itself was cooked correctly and had good taste, The rice beans and tacos were all pretty good. They have a nice little patio which seemed to stay busy. Sort of a... More

Just finishing up a family dinner on a Sunday night and this was our first trip here. Really happy... Complimentary chips, salsa and beans before dinner, wonderful seafood burrito, and my wife had a good margarita. Wow they are efficient and the place was busy. Water was always full, chips were refilled and they checked back to make to see... More

We were out for the evening and decided to try Mi Mexico.l. We were impressed the minute we walked in the door. We were met with a friendly greeting and seated immediately. The table was perfect for our tastes and the ambiance is great. Our waitress arrived with a minute, and after a cheerful hello, took our drink order. A... More
