Finding great Mexican food in the Southeast is nearly impossible, so given that, I found the fare at Castillo de Mexico to be better than that of most Mexican restaurants with prices that were decent. The beef flauta was acceptable, the refried beans were somewhat sweet, and the tamal was pretty good.

We were out and about and decided on an early dinner. We were going to visit the Publix for groceries and decided to have a bite first. Mexican seemed like the choice for the day! We thought we would try Castillo as something different as we had driven buy numerous times but had not stopped in. The restaurant was cool... More

Started with a margarita finished with a margarita. Chips and salsa, 3 enchiladas, rice and beans in between. I asked for changes from their regular menu items and they graciously accommodated. Fast service and clean atmosphere. Conveniently located.

My wife and I were looking for a vegetarian dish today. We ordered the cheese enchiladas with the house ancho chile sause. The enchiladas were soft and flavorful. The sauce was full bodied and delicious. The rice side dish was moist and well made. There was even a clever dish of cubed potatoes with the skin on mixed with a... More

I came into the restaurant as a single female, for dinner. I waited at the hostess station for several minutes before anyone came to seat me. I was greeted with a smile, but then seated off of the main dining room in a dark alcove all by myself, while other diners were seated in the front of the restaurant. It... More

Good authentic Mexican food, friendly staff and good service. I have been several times and love the stuffed poblano peppers. The refried beans are excellent and the yellow rice is moist.

Jorge met me with a smile and I was directed to a nearby booth with an open archway to another section of this cute restaurant located on Beach Blvd. the interior here is sprinkled with modern art and clay. They have a full bar. The signature cocktail list is extensive. Castillo's dessert menu provided the normal fare of flan and... More

Have tried a wide variety of Mexican restaurants in Jacksonville and have yet to find better food. I am surprised at the average rating for this place. There are higher rated Mexican restaurants on this site that I have been to and, to me, none of them compare to the taste, service and overall quality that I have consistently received... More

This was our second visit to Castillo De Mexico. The chips and salsa were very good however, the entrees seemed to be substandard compated to the initial visit and other Mexican restaurants in the area. Staff was helpful but the overall value of the meal was lower than anticipated
