    Was visiting from out of town and wanted to find some reasonable, good, Mexican food. Soooooo glad we went here. Food was outstanding. Service was top notch and price was very reasonable. If I lived in town, I would be a regular. Highly recommend!

    The Monday $1.50 is a pretty cost efficient option for a snack, but don’t expect much else. I walked in, was seated immediately, and placed my order right then. After receiving my drink, I didn’t get any further service from my waiter. They/He never even came by to check on me. No Napkins. No Drink Refill. Nothing. I had to get up myself to grab napkins from the bar area in the distance. I would not recommend coming here.

    Very tight parking lot. Not much space to maneuver. Not a place you would want to park if you were around people drinking. Be careful driving around the back of the restaurant too. There are potholes large enough to give you a flat tire, rip up your bumpers, or to destroy your undercarriage.

    Food was great! Except? When I order ( Hard Taco’s) Not much in it?? And… Beans were too creamy spread too much on my plate Then Three Hard Taco’s become soggy fallen apart. ( Cook threw all three tacos 🌮 right on top of the spreded mushy beans! I liked the food, I liked everything else! My waitress! My Drinks! My Chips, My Guacamole 🥑 My Salsa Ok?
    So… I didn’t complain the Taco’s fell apart!

    We love this place…great staff and great food for good prices.

    UPDATE- 9 years later came here for my birthday and service was very slow and the fresh made guacamole was not the same.

    Not sure if it’s an off night but not as expected or remembered.

  19. Christopher Templeton 2023/07

    The food portions were large (which is a good thing). The service was great. The avocado fries were really good. The appetizer and chips and salsa prevented me from finishing my fajita. I highly recommend this place. I will be returning.

    Rude on 5 de Mayo. I called ahead and asked them the wait and asked for the specials. They said $10 margaritas for the large which isn’t a special because they had that on their regular menu. Once we were seated it took 20 minutes for someone to say anything. When someone finally did come to us he said that there was no drink menu and that they only had one size margaritas and at the front of the restaurants they had a cantaloupe Fresca drink?? So I don’t know if he was just took lazy to get a drink menu or what but he was very rude. Would not recommend

    My wife and I love this restaurant! We go there probably two times a month. Their food is delicious, and their customer service is excellent. We love their Nachos Texanos and the fried chimichangas. Their white sauce is perfect for their nachos. We will continue to have date night there for many years to come.

  42. Meagan Erickson 2022/11

    We enjoy the place because it reminds us of La Hacienda from home. It’s nothing like traditional Mexican food we would get in San Diego but sometimes you just want this kind with the endless chips and salsa, combo plates and melty cheese on everything. A little pricier (we spent about 15 each), so that’s why we rated it less than 5 stars.

  78. H 2021/11

    I ordered lunch to go since I have a short lunch period at work, I go in to pickup my order and when I called it in he said the chips and dip come with it I get there and make sure I have my dip for the chips they only give you salsa not the white dip. He charged me after I said I didn’t want to pay extra for the white dip he said it was because I got it to go but yet I could sit in and eat ALL the white dip I wanted for free? Doesn’t make sense at all. Neatless to say I won’t be giving them my business no attention to detail and as the economy is you would think they would be more accommodating to guest over something so simple.

  79. Bogota bnb inn Estrada 2021/11

    Ordered the chicken sandwich and was surprised at the generous size and quality at that price. Way better deal than other fast food places and it’s prepared fresh when you order it. Ribs are hit and miss, they go from great to ok. This is a regular stop for me.

    This resurant is amazing! As you get to your table and sit down, hot chips and salsa are placed almost timed to your touching the soft cushioned booth seat. Your drink order is immediately taken.
    When the drinks arrive the food order is taken, that didnt take long at all. 10 minutes later you arr eating some very delicious food. We went on a weeknight, Might be different on the weekends with the take out orders but the food is fast, yummy and they have the best diet coke around! Extra napkins without being asked.. Wow! We go out of our way bypassing other Mexican places to eat here.

  85. Rosa Orozco 2021/09

    We originally went to denny’s but they ran out of alot of food so we decided to leave and we found this restaurant. We moved here from California and it’s just so hard to find a good Mexican restaurant and let me tell you this restaurant is full of amazing flavors. I highly recommend it!!

    Tables were placed too close together for comfort, as in people were closer than 6ft from each other. The dollar tacos were great, but not worth getting sick over.

  91. Sophie_gmail69 Kovacs 2021/07

    We ordered takeout from here, and it was prompt and delicious! My husband raved about guys quesadilla with beef tips. My burrito was good, but I think I’ll get a quesadilla next time too 🙂

  98. Lauren 2021/05

    The hostess had such a disgusting attitude I’d never recommend this place to anyone.

    Great food, very reasonable prices. The Carnitas are excellent. Authentic mexican, with a mix of tex mex if you are so inclined. I recommend the Horchata to wash down the carnitas.

    Stopped in for Sunday lunch. We beat the crowd so our service was fast. Chorizo dip was one of the best I’ve had in the Richmond area. Their chips are a bit thicker than I am used to from other places and I didn’t really care much for them. Husband got the burrito California and I got steak fajitas. He enjoyed his without complaints, as he normally does. For mine, however, the steak strips were seriously thin and the quality of meat was sub par. Very chewy and not tasting much like steak. The rice was sort of bland, a little salt helped with that. Their refried beans didn’t have much seasoning so they were also bland. I did appreciate the thinly sliced peppers for the fajitas. I dislike when they are thick sliced and over power the rest of the elements. Overall, a nice experience but for me the food was lacking enough quality that I probably won’t go back. Chewy meat is a no go for me.

    good, not great, tacos. no plastic or napkins, nor did they ask if I needed any of that.

  123. Raquel R 2020/10

    I came here as a last minute decision because I was craving tacos and I am so happy I did! I got the 3 grilled chicken taco deal for $7.99 and let me tell you how delicious and fresh not only the tacos were but also the rice that went inside. Do yourself a favor and come here.

  124. Jordan Eubank 2020/09

    It’s standard Virginia Mexican food, what’s not to enjoy?

  125. Todd Landeck 2020/09

    One of my favorite spots. Amazing food and friendliest staff.

  126. Pierre Centraire 2020/09

    It maybe a coincidence but after eating 3 beef tacos i developed a case of diverticulitis for 4 days. i had cramps and a higher body temperature. they were ground beef tacos.

  127. Chris Brown 2020/09

    One of my favorite Mexican restaurants. The food is inexpensive with generous portions. Their shrimp fajitas is my favorite. The service is pleasant and very efficient. I particularly like their salsa. A little spice without being overwhelming.

  128. Mark Wlaz 2020/08

    The food was surprisingly bland.

  129. IndigoLeo 10 2020/08

    Just ok. The language barrier is very strong. Food was so-so.

  130. Aviva Gabrielle 2020/08

    I was going expecting mediocre food but I wasn’t expecting something so terrible I couldn’t eat it. No flavor, no love, the waiter was harassed and unpleasant, although he was somewhat apologetic when my plate was barely touched. I showed him the enchilada which was soggy, falling apart. The chicken was flavorless. The presentation was horrible grey beans sallow rice, two sad doughy enchiladas. He didn’t charge me for it at least.The chips and salsa were pretty good however. I will never set foot there again. Cmon man, your a disgrace to Mexico.

  131. Verm The Invader 2020/08

    Chicken soft tacos are good. Overall, ingredients don’t appear fresh. Lettuce looks like it comes from a bag. Steak tasted unseasoned. Service was fast and friendly.

  147. James H 2020/03

    Always fast and courteous service, the food is good and worth a visit. Often frequented by business folks from the area it can be busy at lunchtime but I don’t think I’ve ever had to wait for a table as they have great capacity and are pretty quick on the food turn-around even during busy times. Any of the lunch specials is affordably priced and worth ordering and the other non-specials are very good as well. There is extra parking in the rear if the front lot is crowded.

  148. Bob Shearer 2020/02

    Guys look. This is the original. THE original MEXICAN restaurant. Don’t be fooled by the impersonators. This is THE real deal. I eat here more than anywhere else. If I get divorced it’s because my wife hates how much I want to come here.

  161. Carole Moore 2019/11

    I’m a Houstonian living in Virginia, so I know Mexican food! I have been so disappointed with most of the Mexican food places here in Richmond. The majority of them don’t even have refried beans! This place was great, however! They had all the traditional Mexican/TexMex dishes, prepared perfectly, and highly tasty. The waiter was excellent, and our dishes came out as we had ordered them. The chips and salsa were great, too! The atmosphere is authentic and pleasing. There can be a wait on popular nights, but it is well worth sticking around for the food! The parking is pretty sparse, and you should avoid going out the back way because there are huge potholes galore. I’d recommend getting there early.

  162. Olivia A 2019/11

    I ate lunch here on a Thursday. The food was good, plentiful, and affordable. The service was great. It was quiet enough that you could have a conversation. The atmosphere was okay. I ordered a chicken burrito off the lunch menu and enjoyed it.

  163. Ken Kuipers 2019/11

    What can I tell you. I’ve been 4 times and had something different each time. The food is exceptionally great!!! The people are very nice and the service is above average. The food is so good that is they served me calling me names of so be going back. The carnitas is some of the best I’ve ever had. And the tall beers are huge!

Very disappointing! I believe next time we’ll go to plaxa azteca Mexico has really gone down hill. Maybe owners have changed or somethimg but wont ever recommend them again

The service is very prompt and friendly every time I visit. My order is always perfect and I never have to wait too long for my food. I would highly recommend their Chori Pollo as it’s very delicious as well as a large amount of food for a decent price. Their free chips and salsa are always filled along with my drinks and everything is always on point. I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for an authentic Mexicano experience.

    Great Mexican food for reasonable prices. Monday is $1 taco day, chicken or beef, no problemo! The usual entrees are very affordable and everything tastes, “Magnifico!” I love the enchiladas too, “Mui, Mui Bueno!” It’s a little crowded on Mondays but well worth any wait, still very fast service. Allthough, if you miss the lunch rush there is the ciesta factor between 2-4pm.
    “Aye Caromba!”

    This has become a favorite lunch spot. Great prices, food is excellent, and service is great. You should definitely go here over Plaza Azteca.

  270. D C 2018/02

    The place was great. Server was friendly and efficient, we never waited for water or chip refills. I’d definitely recommend checking it out.

  271. Sally Thompson 2018/02

    Unfortunately, I got some food poisoning from here a couple weeks ago.. I had the combo “#F” which was chicken. Which is sad because I used to like this place. And when I ask for a few lemon slices… just give me lemons not a snarky look and lecture about how your manager doesn’t like giving out too many lemon slices!!! And fajitas should come with more than two tortillas.. and not make people ask for more.

  272. Daniel Bello Tejeda 2018/01

    The chicken fajitas I ordered came with almost no chicken and the rice was fairly bland.

  289. Nathan Dryden 2017/11

    We were seated quickly for a Friday night. The waiter was very quick and attentive. The food was very good and we would go back again.

  290. Mark W Hall 2017/11

    Good food with friendly service! I had the Quesadilla Texana, and it was both tasty and HUGE, which I like. We were seated immediately and got chips and salsa seconds after we sat down. The menu and look of the place was just classy enough to not break a budget, and I would easily find this place again to have some good Mexican food!

  291. Bren Blish 2017/10

    This is literally the best Mexican food I have ever had. Who knew you’d find it in Richmond Virginia? I recommend the pollo asado. The guac is out of this world. I don’t know how I’ll ever eat anything else and be satisfied. May have ruined my life in that sense? Oh well it was worth it.

  292. Daniel Angel 2017/08

    Delicious food every time I have ever been there and great service.

  297. T Davis 2017/08

    I went in to pick up my order the young man at the front told me my total. I said ok well let me make sure my food is right then as I was going through my order . I said this is what extra​ meat looks like now note I paid extra for extra meat so the young man turns around and says if your going to complain then you shouldn’t have order from here. First I’m not from here so I was trying your restaurant out, second I am spending $30 on my food , and last why did you find it the necessary to have an attitude and speak to a customer that way not only that I seen roaches inside the restaurant and it was just overall a very bad experience. I will never eat there again and I will be contacting the health department so for anyone trying this restaurant not only are they very disrespectful to their customers but they also do have a insect problem

  298. Kathy Dodson 2017/07

    As a lover of Mexican this place was spot on.

  299. Carlos Reyes 2017/06

    Waitress was unfriendly and rude. Food wasn’t the best….little pricey for what we got as well.

  306. Chris Kennell 2017/05

    We enjoy this restaurant regularly! It’s not uncommon to get your food before you even get your drinks! This place flies! The food is great and the staff is friendly. Check them out on Monday’s for $1 taco night!

  307. Scott Vaden 2017/04

    Try the homemade guacamole. Delisous

  308. Duane Keeve 2017/04

  310. Wilcher Davis 2017/03

    Really great food. Love the atmosphere. Margaritas are really good, really cheap. The more Margaritas you ask for the stronger they get. Never left this place without being miserably full and happy happy happy

  311. Cheyenne Martin 2017/03

    We were the first 2 people in the restaurant when it opened at 11am. We we’re seated immediately & given chips & salsa…the whole time we’re being stared at by the staff. We ordered & when my food arrived, I didn’t like the taste of the sauce on the enchiladas so I asked if I could order a different dish in its place. The waiter didn’t say much, kinda looked pissed off about the whole situation then he asked me what I wanted to replace what I had. I told him the lunch chicken fajitas without the guacamole salad. A few minutes later, he brings that out & I tell him I’m so sorry about the mishap…he didn’t say one word to make me feel welcomed or wanted there, like he had an attitude because I didn’t like what I had the first time. Then when he brings me the beans & rice on the plate, guess what’s on there with it!? SALAD!…when I specifically asked for none. So I wave him down again & told him that I didn’t want any salad, just the beans & rice, he takes the plate to the back & doesn’t return with anything else. So I didn’t eat any of what I ordered & didn’t plan on paying for none of the food either since my order was wrong not once, but twice & the whole time we were there we were stared at. Such an uncomfortable environment & definitely my last time there. Luckily my coworker was nice enough to take the check before me & go to the counter & pay because they weren’t t gonna get it from me…especially when I didn’t eat any of the messed up order!

    My usual Mexican restaurant was jammed, so decided to try a new one. Original Mexican Restaurant delivered! What I would expect from a traditional Mexican (American) restaurant. Extensive menu, good prices, attentive service. Will definitely be back.

    Kinda generic but not bad. Just okay. The service is decent and the chips and salsa taste pretty good + they’re free with meal.

    Fast friendly service with reliable Mexican fare. We’ve been coming here over 20 years. There are now several locations throughout Richmond, but this one is our favorite.

    Let me start by saying that I love Mexican food. Let me also add that I find most Mexican restaurants (on the east coast) to be pretty indistinguishable. Original Mexico had pretty much the same menu you’ll find at any other Mexican restaurant. But you know those times you go to a Mexican restaurant and it just isn’t that good… Like the salsa is lacking in flavor or the rice is undercooked or it just wasn’t all that good?… You’ll never have that experience here. The salsa is excellent and everything I’ve had had been enjoyable. Margaritas are cheap and service is wonderful… And did I mention the salsa?

  333. Eric Woodall 2016/05

    I’ve eaten here several times and can’t find any faults. In fact, they do it better than most, way better. I guess this place could be called my favorite.

  334. R McC 2016/03

    Excellent service and great tasting food. The hot salsa was incredible.

  335. Sunny Viswanathan 2016/03

    Typical Tex-Mex spot with tons of lunch and dinner specials. Friendly staff and fast service. Best for a quick lunch break.

  336. Paige Reisenfeld 2016/02

    As far as the menu goes, it’s not so different from most Mexican restaurants, but they do it all well. I haven’t had anything here I haven’t liked (my favorite being the California Burrito).

    The best salsa I’ve had at a Mexican place and the chips are never stale. Great (powerful) margaritas too. The service is always fast and friendly.

  337. RTM Rtm 2015/10

    I’ve been coming here for years. Richmond’s best Mexican restaurant. Great service, great food.

  338. Stacy Donohue 2015/08

    Best food ever!!! they treat you like family, quick good food!! Jen w. needs to give it another try ..been coming here 20 years and never been disappointed:-)

  340. Harry Bosch 2015/05

    The place stunk when we walked in. The glasses had a foul smell, so the drinks tasted so bad and we left our beers half drunk. The waiter was very fast and hovering constantly. I am not usually happy to be finished our evening out after only 15 minutes, but with all the screaming babies and foul smells, it was very nice to leave this s***hole.

  341. Andrew Newton 2015/01

    Great restaurant, I’ve been coming here for years.

  342. Jen W 2014/11

    No beuno!! Recently moved down the road from the place, so for my husband’s birthday we thought we would try it. Plate/dish descriptions are very minimal on the menu, and do not include any sort of description of ingredients, and the waitress didn’t understand the simple questions my husband had about the ingredients. He ordered the beef nachos and I ordered the chicken chimichangas. My chimichanga was bland and used typical store bought canned shredded chicken with green chile added (which had no taste). The nachos were far worse. There was no actual ground beef in the ‘beef’ nachos, but rather more canned meat. I tried a bite, and I would suggest that the dish be renamed ‘Alpo nachos’… I presume dog food would taste better. We lived in New Mexico for 6 years, and nothing about the place is ‘authentic’, and is the worst Mexican place we’ve been to in Richmond. The food was tasteless and uninspired. We won’t be back.

    Food is legit. No chain restaurants here. Enjoy!
