I’m a foodie and was super excited about this place based on reviews. The food was cold, and took a long time to have ready. The server forgot my drink and salsa after multiple requests. Will definitely not come back and do not recommend.

I love going to Meso Maya when I'm with someone who would identify and appreciate pretty authentic Mexican/Central American food. There are several recognizable classics like cochinita pibil, pollo con mole, pozole, and more. The flavors would be unusual to someone who's only had Tex-Mex and a surprising delight to someone who misses just Mex.

I hesitated to say yes to a recommendation mainly due to the service. The food is quite good, the green sauce is amazing, good margs, good guac, but there are two major issues. One, I believe the owners are homophobic and two, the service has been consistently poor. We waited an unreasonable time for everything. Had to chase him down for refills, check, etc. and he never once checked on us. It's disappointing cuz it's otherwise really good.

To begin with we had a reservation and got a very poor table location. The hostess apologized for the seating. The manager was very nice and came by to say hello and bring a welcome dish. The waitress was ok but very pushy to herd us through our dining. She removed an appetizer plate with food still on it. When I asked about the pozole soup of which there were two choices she didn’t let me get the question out before she recommended the soup that wasn’t the pozole . I told her that if She didn’t recommend the pozole then I didn’t want any soup. I really wanted pozole. I thought, not taking my order for the soup I wanted was very bad for the restaurant business. What else is she denying customers. She also only recommended the enchiladas and the tacos. I thought that was strange. She removed my dates dinner plate and then asked if he was finished. I wouldn’t let her take mine at that time. I wanted to finish eating. I didn’t catch her name because she was not American and I couldn’t understand her name with her accent. This was our first time to Mesomaya and we will probably not be returning. The waitress truly made us feel unwelcome.

I will say that we made the reservation and arrived early. They tried to sit us at a table by the bathroom. I asked for another one, they complied. The Top Shelf Margarita was terrible. No taste at all. I ordered wine. The Avocado Margarita is wonderful. I ordered the Pork Chop , which was delicious, but it was served with a spicy red sauce all on one side of the plate and the elite was so spicy I could not eat it. None of this ws specified on the menu. So I did eat a wonderful Pork Chop. The Moscow Mule was served in a tall glass, not a copper mug. Picky? Maybe, but the drinks are not cheap.

My boyfriend had brisket enchilada & was delighted. I had soup that was not up to its usual. It contained a lg cold chunk of hard, not ripe avocado. The soup was esp'ly salty & seemed most likely to be left over from the weekend.
The staff was esp'ly nice & I did not complain about the soup. I feel sure the staff would have offered a substitute. The restaurant was unusually quiet/few patrons, even for a Monday
