If you love Mexican food this is where you need to go. Great taste in their food. Drinks are great too and desserts are amazing. Also, great service I felt so comfortable with the waitress that attended my party.

This is a normally a great restaurant for when we have out of town guests. Chose the Lakewood location due to not being able to get reservations downtown. Food here was just okay, and service not as attentive, possibly because we sat out in the patio area. Still love Meso Maya but downtown and Plano locations seem to have higher quality and atmosphere.

Meso Maya is one of my top recommendations for Tex Mex. The food has tons of flavors and the drink options are wide too. I’d recommend the Top Shelf and Avocado margarita. I really like chicken mole and plantains and they get it right here. The atmosphere is conducive to feeling like you’re focused on the people at your table with Edison bulb lighting. I really love the round tables for large parties. It’s such a lost art to be able to see and engage everyone who is with you easily. Will definitely continue to have this be my go to Tex Mex option for outings with many friends and family.

It was our first visit to Meso Maya. Had the ceviche as an appetizer, it was the best. Wife ordered the chicken mole and I ordered the Cochinita Pibil. Both were amazing, delicious and very flavorful. Best flan we had in a while. Definitely will be returning soon. Great atmosphere.

We were attending a convention of nearly 20,000 real estate agents in Dallas, so everything in downtown was packed! We wanted a nice, quiet dinner with a small group of friends so we decided to drive a few miles further. Best decision! This Meso Maya location gave us great service and delicious food!

We had the best time and the food was amazing. We loved our server, Zuma, she recommended everything we ordered and it was so sooo good! We got the carne asada entree and the enchiladas sorrinos and split both dishes between the two of us. I told her we were going to share them, expecting to just eat off each other’s plates, but they expertly cut everything in half perfectly and brought us each out our portions. It was an extra step that made a huge difference! Loved the atmosphere too, definitely will be returning! If nothing else just for the sweet corn tamal. One of the best things we have ever eaten!

I had the Mandarin Margarita, which was awesome. I also had the suggested grilled shrimp, rice and squash dinner. Scrumptious! My husband had the Del Mar enchiladas, which he said were outstanding. Everything was great. The only thing that bothered me was sitting close to the kitchen doors, and therefore had the waiters running back and forth in front of our table. Though we sat in a booth for 4, we were only two and therefore could scoot to the inner side of the booth. So not that bad. Definitely will recommend to friends.

We've eaten several times at the Preston/Forest location and enjoyed it very much; this was our first time at the Lakewood location. The service and food were extremely rushed at this location. Certainly not as flavorful as the Preston/Forest location. More of a microwave and bring it quickly vibe which we never felt at the Preston/Forest location.

I have probably eaten here about 10 times and it has always been excellent food and excellent service. We enjoy the regional Mexican Cuisine. We made reservations via open table and were promptly escorted to our tables. We went before a show and were out faster than I had calculated. They move the people thru here, but they don't rush you. We really enjoy this place. She had the short ribs and relleno and I had the New York Strip with Chimichurri sauce. Both were prepared first rate.

The food and presentation are wonderful. I had the enchiladas Serrano, and the chicken was moist and wonderful. My only head scratcher was when we arrived, we changed our reservation from four adults to six adults—and were told we could not be seated until another person in our party arrived. We were there early afternoon, and they were not busy. There were plenty of tables available, so I am not sure why this policy is in place. We stood in the entry for about 5 minutes while two other parties were seated.
