I was not impressed

I hate giving reviews that are nothing but bad but I don’t have anything good to say about my experience at Mad Mex except it was nice to be there with friends.

First off, I am not a big Mexican fan but I can usually find something I will eat there. When you don’t like peppers or anything spicy it normally narrows down the choices but that’s okay. However, in this case, I had a very hard time finding something. I settled for taco salad without roasted peppers and jalapenos but when it came it seemed they cut up an entire onion to make up for the lack of peppers. I ate about 10 bites of it. Seven of those bites were of the tortilla bowl.

Second, it was so dark in the corner we were sitting in, we all had to get out our phones or small flashlights to read the menu. Call me crazy, but doesn’t the restaurant get more orders if the diner can read the menu? Also because it was so dark, that was another reason I didn’t eat much of the salad. I had no idea what ingredient I was actually putting on my fork. That grosses me out a bit.

Third, the music was so loud I could not hear any of the girls at the other end of the table. Heck, I could barely hear the woman across from me! We were not in a dance club so what was the point of that?

I guess I should have gone with a thought I had while reading the menu and just waited for dessert! I definitely won’t be going back.

Another authentic mexican restaurant

When I was in college we went to the Mad Mex in Oakland pretty much weekly. So when I moved to the North Hills I was totally psyched that they opened one so close to me. The food is really great here and very reasonably priced, but the…

Food is great! Breakfast is outstanding - great over-easy eggs, great home fries, bacon and toast. I love the ambiance but I like people. Nicky is most always there and always gives you a shout and some love. And, you bump into others you know. Food
Never had a negative experience.
