Everything I've tasted on the menu has been good, but I am partial to the cochinita pibil dish they serve. Margaritas are nice by the pitcher here too.
Rude staff, bland food. For instance- enchiladas are just chicken wrapped in a tortilla swimming in tasteless sauce. Tamales are mush wrapped in a corn husk. Also if you have any concerns, they will claim there is "no manager" to speak to. Ha! You are better off at a dumb franchise like "Alcapulco".
Nothing Special. I can't speak to the more elaborate dishes here. But if you're looking for the basic burrito, rice and beans experience, you can do much better. There was nothing special about the taste here, especially for the money - - a tad expensive for what you get. El Pollo Loco's Ultimate burrito is tastier and half the price.
Worst Mexican Restaurant in Los Angeles. This was the worst restaurant experience I have ever had. From the moment we arrived the hostess was a totally rude and condescending. She ruined our night. She was on some surreal power trip towards everyone waiting to eat. This place is definitely not trendy any more and looks like a dump. I would rather eat at Del Taco. The service is much better and the customers and employees are treated with dignity.
Awesome Mexican Food with Homemade Taste. Authentic, mouth watering dishes that have a distinct homemade taste which is often so hard to find at Mexican restaurants in LA. Great service from nice friendly staff. It's a fun place to drink sangria, get a little rowdy, but all with good humor. I highly recommend it for any one looking for the best Mexican food in Los Feliz.
Nice Crowd. I have never had a bad time at Mexico City. It has a great diverse crowd, no attitude, great waiters like Victor, and good food. It's like going out and going home.
great carne asada. great food, quick service, traditional mexican dishes, and a great rotation of new variations on classic meals. I've been a few times, and I will certainly visit again soon. The carne asada is awesome!
Good, Lethal Drinks, Food so-so. This place is a hipster haven, but fun atmosphere. The drinks are delicious and lethal! Yumm! One margerita almost did me in. The food, not so much. I had fajitas and they were bland and didn't come with any extras...not even sour cream. I would go back - but only to meet friends for drinks and apps.
Disappointment. This is my first review at this site, and I'm sorry to say that Mexico City was a disappointment for me. Started with a whopping great martini on the rocks, two very good salsas (one tomatillo, one red) that came with the real tortilla chips - and then things fell apart. Service was very good. Food not so. Worst Tortilla soup I've ever had. Tasted as though they just heated up some tomato juice; it was way too acid. Waitress took it off my check. Shrimp Veracruzana was not the best I've had; again with acidy tomato sauce, which wasn't helped by the capers. I have no idea where the green olives were that were meant to be in the sauce. However, it was edible. It seems that the burritos are well liked, but I'm not a burrito fan. Would have liked to have tried one tamale as an appetizer, but they are served in pairs as a meal only, but I doubt I'll take the chance to return to try them. I make my own tamales.
Mole Verde. All I have to say is mole verde! The best mole in town! And their tortilla chips? Mmmmm! Have a Margarita while your there to!
Our favorite Mexican Resturant. This is our favorite Mexican Resturant. The servers are nice, it is very affordable, and the food is delicious and they give you a generous amount. It is my husband and my go to place. Whenever we leave, we are in a good mood because of the comfortable atmosphere, the good food and tasty Margaritas. We live in the neighborhood and we like to walk there. We have been there probably 10 times and only once did we have slow service, but they were still really nice. I highly recommend it.
Good food; terrible customer service. Being a new parent, finding time to go out to dinner isn't easy. That's why we were so disappointed with the awful treatment we received at Mexico City last weekend. My husband called in advance to make a reservation and made sure to tell the person on the phone that there'd be 2 babies needing high chairs in our party. We were assured that we'd be accommodated. When we arrived, the restaurant's 3 high chairs were all in use. We asked to speak to the manager. She came over to our table and was wishy-washy about the whole thing, saying that people came in off the street and needed the high chairs. She told us whoever we spoke to gave us wrong information and they couldn't reserve high chairs. Then she proceeded to say that they'd even purchased more high chairs to accommodate people with families (how many did they have before, 1?) We didn't even receive an apology. Then, she just kind of walked way from the table and didn't say anything else. She was quite rude. The food was good, but needless to say we won't be returning.
worst experience. After my experience this weekend I was compelled to write this. I had a decent dinner here on Friday evening and so I came back with my girlfriend on Sunday. While my burrito was acceptable, her "special tacos" meal was just terrible. Not wanting to say anything, she just picked at it until the meal was over and finally admitted to me that she thought there was something just wrong with it. I figured it would be no problem to just ask the waiter to remove the half-eaten dinner from our bill. He cleaned off our table and said he had to ask the manager and that's when things took a bizarre and ugly turn. Several minutes later our server told us that the manager would not approve voiding the dinner since we waited until the end of the meal to tell her about it and she felt we ate too much of it. I asked to speak to the manager and when she arrived she put both hands on the edge of the table and leaning over said "What's the problem?" I explained that my girlfriend's dinner wasn't very good and she had hardly touched it so we'd like to have it removed from the bill. "I won't do that," she said. "She ate all of it." I said, "You've got to be kidding, both tortillas are still on the plate with most of the meat." You know she said?..."We don't charge based on the tortillas, we charge based on the meat. You want me to bring it back out of the kitchen for you?" I know anyone reading this must be laughing by now, but I swear this is what happened. I said, "What's your name?" She answered, "Sylvia". I asked her, "Who's the owner? " "I am," she spat back at me. It took all my effort not to create a total scene so I just stared into space and told her to ring up the whole bill. She answered, "I'll get your server to do it," and walked away. I don't think I've ever had a more unpleasant experience anywhere.
great place for mexican food. Finally a place with good authentic mexican food. I cant get enough of this place. Big variety of food for a great price. The service is good and the atmosphere is awesome. It is a nice family restaurant, but it gets a little too loud sometimes. Drinks are ok, not the best, but the great food balances the drink aspect. Parking is hard to find but well worth the search. There is a wait on the weekenks usually in the late afternoon or evening, but it doesnt go past 5-10 minutes. If youre looking for a place to go with the family and even kids, this is the place. Will definitely keep going to Mexico City for more.
Average Food and Generally Overrated.. After hearing many raves about Mexico City, my husband and I finally decided to give it a try. After spending a frustrating amount of time trying to find a parking spot, we finally entered the overly crowded and loud dining room only to wait again for seating. This is not so surprising considering its popularity; however, once seated, the service began on a slow and unattentive note and continued as such throughout the duration of our meal. While the food was not terrible (it was average), the slow service and loud environment resulted in a disappointing experience.
AVOID THIS PLACE. terrible service, horrible food, AND they want way too much $ for it. we didn't even finish our meal we were so PO'd and disgusted. this place doesn't even deserve a long explaination on why it's such trash. just don't go.
over priced , not good mexican food. Mexican food I love it. You are better off going to Alcapulco down the street, Mexico city is overpriced and under sliced food. I go to a mexican restaurant because I am hungry... not dieting.
Good Mexican food!. After having great home cooked Mexican meals for my whole life and experiencing Arizona Mexican restaurants I consider myself to be spoiled. Most L.A. Mexican restaurants are a far cry from good Mexican food but Mexico City is the exception. The times I have visited, I have had the Plato Mexica and the side of calabacitas (zucchini). I can't bring myself to try any other dishes because these two are so good. The mole in the Plato Mexica is amazing! Plus the calabacita side is just like the dish my mom use to make.
DO NOT GO TO MEXICO CITY!!!!. This place is good if you like horrible service and an owner who treats her customers like garbage!! And lets not forget the male genitalia that was hand drawn on the lime of my margarita...NO JOKE! I love dining out and this is the only place I will NOT ever go back to.
Best Mole sauce in LA!. Although it may not be "authentic" down home Mexican food, this place rocks in many ways. The mole sauce is amazing... you have to try it. This is also true for the Ranchero sauce. The wife loves the shrimp veracruzana, which is a tomato, onion, and caper sauce with grilled shrimp. They also have great chips and salsa, and the margaritas definitely are great. This place can get very crowded, especially on weekends, and parking can be tough if you don't get one of the limited spaces behind the restaurant. (There is a valet stand up the hill) Overall this is a great fun place to have good food and drinks with friends.
