I try to eat here every time I come to town. In our party of 7, 5 were at the restaurant for the 1st time. Everybody loved it! They found the food to be delicious, the prices to be read reasonable, and the staff to be friendly.

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

I usually go to the Meso in Uptown but haven’t been In a while since moving. We were in the area so i was excited to stop at the Meso on Preston. Service was great but food was terrible. Everything was overly marinated/too salty. Brisket was so greasy. I got my fav salad that I used to dream about..beans tasted like can beans, chicken was dry and saturated in marinade. My sons quesadillas were plastic and beans so salty.
