Food had a really good taste and the server was good on getting us refills but other than that, the service was not up to par on what I have experienced at other Meso Maya locations.

Great food, great service, and good on the table location. Our party of two was nestled between 3 sets of multi-family tables with young children. A different area of the restaurant (tables appeared to be available in ither areas) would have likely bumped the "good" rating to "excellent" and resulted in a fantastic date nite for this empty nester couple.

We will likely never return after a very disappointing visit this past week. The food was mediocre and our service was sub par; with the quantity of delicious food options in Dallas, there is no reason to risk another disappointing evening by coming back.

Our waitress must not have been trained because from the moment she approached our table we were made to feel like an inconvenience. Have no idea if they had any specials that night, never learned her name, was bothered when asked for things such as salt, more chips for our queso (after the basket had been empty for over 20 minutes), and our dirty dishes sat in front of us until we left the restaurant (she refused to get a bus boy to take them from the table when we asked if they could be cleared).

Food was cold. Soup and ceviche appetizers were served with our entrees. The ceviche was not a stand out. The soup may have been great had it not been room temperature. The pork entree that we received initially was not the one we ordered. Our dinner companions did enjoy the brisket tacos, making that the only win from our meal! They had never been there and said they will not be going back.

Hopefully Meso Maya Preston Forest will read this review so they can work on retraining their staff.

We obviously came at the wrong time.
15 minute wait for water, we were finishing the chips and salsa, before we got any.
20 minutes at least for drinks, after ordering them.
Server was pleasant but overwhelmed... not his fault as he didn't seem to have any support staff helping.
Ran out of chicken tamales, but it was busy.
Food was decent.
If we returned, we just would try to to come at a peak hour I guess

They were understaffed... we waited forever for warm bottles of beer. When dinner came the steak was both over cooked and cold (seems impossible). Not our best night at Meso Mayo. We are frequent diners, but I’m not sure we will return.

Loved our waiter, who could see, without asking, that my friend and I had a lot to catch up on, and didn't want fast service. He was so very accommodating. Loved the guacamole and chips, as well as my short ribs and cheese filled chile relleno. So much food ! Glad to take some home to enjoy for lunch. My friend loved her mole chicken. No room for dessert.

Very special to be able to enjoy a dining experience over 2.5 hours without being rushed. Thank you!
