“There's a reason it's one of the oldest restaurants around”
Review of Mexican Kitchen

Mexican Kitchen
Ranked #61 of 106 Restaurants in Columbus
Restaurant details
Reviewed 8 January 2014

The "Kitchen" has been around for a long time, and the simple reason is because it's just great food!

Owned by the same family, this restaurant is entering it's 50th year in the business. Not your typical Mexican restaurant, this is REAL Mexican food. Not mass produced food, food smothered in cheese (unless you ask for that), or a large menu selection, it doesn't look like it would be a popular place, but it is.

The chips are actually broken taco shells, not nachos, and the salsa is a homemade hot sauce that is not for everyone. Domestic beer is available in bottles, but get the ice cold mug that almost freezes the beer.

The Mexican Kitchen has been a mainstay in Columbus for as long as I can remember. With Columbus being my 'hometown', I have had the pleasure of eating here many, many times. The food has authentic flair and has been consistently good over the years. From the unique hot sauce to the sliced jalapenos on the table, no other Mexican restaurant in town measures up to the 'homemade' flavors and atmosphere here. The menu is rather simple, but to me, a lot of times simple is better. Only order the 'Large Plate' if you're REALLY hungry. You get your moneys worth on that one for sure!

I live 50 miles away and I have been visiting this restaurant since 1977 and it is the best tasting Mexican food, taste like Mexican Home cooking. They have the best sauce ever and the tacos are delicious. Would recommend you try this restaurant for authentic Mexican food.

This is the best Mexican restaurant I have ever been to. Growing up we would drive over a 100 miles just to bring my mom here for her birthday every year. The food is amazing. Words cannot describe the yumminess of their tacos. The best part though is the sauce. There is no other sauce like it. It will make you cry from happiness and maybe a little from the hotness of it. To sum it up you will eat till you are about to explode then eat a few more taco shells with that sauce on it.
