    First time eating at Meso Maya. Found an article online stating it had one of the best quesos in DFW, so made the 30 minute drive to try it out. The restaurant is very nice. We had a reservation and were seated right away. The chips and salsa are very tasty and the queso is average. It is definitely not one of the best in the area. The food itself was good, with the enchiladas being one of the best queso enchiladas around. The Arrachera was also very good. The mole enchiladas were good, not great. Overall, it is a nice place to eat dinner with the family. Our server was a bit busy and forgot our appetizers and did not come around as often as we would have liked.

    Meso Maya is a good “go to” restaurant for Tex Mex. The food is reliable but not outstanding. Last night we were disappointed because even though the restaurant wasn’t busy, our waiter was not very attentive. Our entrees were brought to the table lukewarm.

    Servers were great. Tried a new menu item the tostada's and love them. Corn ice cream is still the best dessert.

    Everything was so fresh and yummy! The cocktails were great and our service, while a little hard to hear, was really good. I had the steak Al carbon and hubby had the pork chop. Meat was so tender and flavorful. Queso and fresh quac was a super starter. Highly recommend. We will be back!

    They were quick to seat us but beyond having chips and salsa brought to us we waited for ten minutes before asking the host where a server for us was. People who set after us were being waited on but no-one acknowledged our table. The hostess came and took a drink order then a few minutes later a server finally showed up and asked for our drink order. Food was good but that experience put a damper on the dinning overall. If we go back it will be to try one of their other locations.

    Wait staff slow. First Mexican restaurant that I’ve been to with two different chili poblano pepper dishes with no poblano peppers to be had.… Amazing for the end of the summer. Waiter got busy and was very and attentive but started out very congenial. It was our 35th anniversary, which was stated on the reservation. Nothing was said or done to acknowledge it. Unlikely to go again anytime soon

    Food was mediocre. The brisket enchiladas have a weird aftertaste. I wanted a sweet tea but the waiter said they don’t offer sweet tea. Wanted a root beer, they don’t offer root beer. Got a lemonade, so it was basically unsweetened lemon water; it tastes like water with a slight squeeze of a lemon wedge. The queso was too thick to pick up with the stale chips. The salsa tastes burnt. I will not go back to this place.

    The tostadas were delicious. The drinks were ok, a little too heavy on the mixer. The pork taco was bland. The ambience was great until they opened the large window to the patio in the afternoon and the restaurant for hot and humid quickly.

    The food is good, although on this occasion, my shrimp was overcooked. Portions are big and the flavors are wonderful. My wife had the pork and it was delectable. Getting greeted took about 10 minutes once I got seated. Getting a single w on my water after i downed my beer and water, was a challenge. I felt like I was treated as an afterthought by the staff who tended to flock at the end of the bar. This is an indication that there is poor management structure at the establishment.

    Everything’s my was great except open table. For the 45 May bites around time I wanted to dine, open table showed only space at the bar. When I arrived for 8:30 bar reservation the restaurant was half full. Plenty of tables. Maybe OpenTable customers are overbooking

    Wait staff was on top of things and checked back in with us for time to time but wasn't overbearing. Food was average. I had Chicken Tinga Tacos. Hubs had Poblano Pepper. Good but not outstanding. We do love the table salsa that's served. Bought some to take home. Do you serve fajitas or did we miss them on the menu?
