Lots of people average prices but was not impressed with the food. Costs were more than some nice mom and pop mexican restaurants in Southern California. We had the standard chips and ordered guacamole which was very good and freshly made for us. I had the chile relleno with rice and beans. It did not come with the red or... More

Great service and decent prices. Tacos were a little dry. Interesting part of town but the place was packed so it's obviously a popular spot for lunch. It would have been nicer to have more flavor in the tacos.

If you're looking for authentic, this is it. Ceviche was fabulous. Classic tacos are classic and meaty. I was looking forward to pazole, but they only make it on the weekends. :-(

This restaurant is in what looks like a former Burger Chef Restaurant but the food is what counts here! If you want a fancy environment for an evening date then you do need to go somewhere else but if you want awesome Mexican food unlike any other Mexican food you've ever had then you need to visit Taqueria Mixteca.

We were thourouly disappointed with our meals. My wife had Enchiladas that were sub-par, dry and bland. I had the Build your own Burrito and was totally disappointed. I ordered with shredded beef, it was dry, the tortilla wrap was tough, ate 1/3 in before getting sour cream, but most of all the meat was a mixture of beef and... More

What a dump. We were there for dinner based on others reviews. Place was dirty, waitress was very inattentive, food was not good, bathrooms were filthy, they don't sell beer. Never again. Not sure why you would go there.

This continues to be one of the best Mexican restaurants around these parts! I cannot order anything but the campechanos, they are so good! So, no other recommendations--yet! Having experienced Mexican near the border in Arizona, and in Mexico itself, I can tell you this is good, authentic food!

This place rocks. I have not had a bad meal here and have tried over ten of their dishes. It is great (and very affordable)

Made the drive to the restaurant based on outstanding reviews. Not worth the drive. Average chicken mole enchiladas, chips & salsa. No alcohol at this location either. Guess I missed that in the fine print. Nice server - just average all around, won't be back.

Not much to look at, but it is always crowded here because the food is really good. Noise level is loud. To use the restroom, you have to get a key and walk outside around to the back, rain sleet or snow. You get the idea?
