Mesero is beyond Tex Mex, but lives up to its promise of Mexican Spirit American Life. One taste of the iconic Queso Mesero and brisket tacos will keep you coming back for more. The shrimp loaded ceviche is truly crave worthy. Be sure not to skip the amazing drink list, it’s the best part!

Overall, a great go-to mexican restaurant in Dallas area. Great food for a reasonable price. Drinks are delicious, but a little pricey. I’m a regular and keep coming back.

The food here was very flavorful, we enjoyed eggs, scramble, and pancakes for brunch. Drinks were overpriced, especially $3 cans of soda. Our waiter made mistakes with 3 of the 6 entrees because he didn’t write them down, but they quickly fixed all the errors.

Don’t get me wrong, the food is really good and the service is usually top notch. But the place is filled with screaming kids and parents who seem to have no intention of doing anything about it. And tonight was the second time we’ve asked for our food to go, and when we asked where it was, we were given a paper bag with a bowl of verde salsa in it. We specifically ordered our meal with the intention of taking some home, so to order with this in mind, eat less than 1/2 of it, and then be given a lousy bowl of salsa is beyond disappointing,

Also, reservations are almost meaningless over here. Tonight was the 3rd time we can remember having reservations, not being seated at least 10-15 minutes after that time, and see people walk in and be seated immediately who were obviously friends with the employees if not regulars. I really want to enjoy Mesero, but think we’ve been there for the last time.

Nice restaurant. Always good service. Nice ambiance and vibe. Very loud - hard to have a conversation when the restaurant is busy. The two person tables are dysfunctionally small. Service this time seemed distracted and rushed.

I always forget how LOUD this place is. The food is good and easy for our neighborhood...They are very nice to you in there as well. It is not a linger and enjoy a meal place...they get you in and out.

We had a reservation for Mesero on a Tuesday night. We arrived 10-15 min early and ended up waiting a total of 45 minutes to be seated. Food was great but the waiting time and crowded feel of the entrance was not desirable and really put a damper on our date night.

I have enjoyed going Mesero's for several years now. The food and atmosphere is great. Love the sauces for the chips. The service is excellent. The drinks I used to consider good. I get a Margareta on the rocks. I do not drink a lot but when I order a drink I want to tell that it has alcohol in it. I do not see that so it appears they skimp on the alcohol. Too bad. Look forward to going again just wish the drinks were better.

I love this Mesero and so does everyone else in the neighborhood. Doesn't matter if there is a wait, the people that work there are so friendly and the food is so good that I keep coming back over and over. Noise level is high during prime dinner hour, but the drinks and food make it all worth it.

Great food and good service for our group of 9. We've been here before and we'll be back. The only negative comments would be related to the servers clearing our table. I understand wanting to clear the table but the reaching around and in front of us to clear the tables was awkward. We were still having conversations with our friends across the table and we had to duck around their reach to get of their way. It seemed discourteous at the time and quite an interruption for our group.

We made a reservation, but then plans changed and we came early in hopes of a table (a long shot, we knew). The hostess was more than helpful and cheerful finding us a table for two in less than thirty minutes!

The white queso with brisket and variety of salsas was the perfect way to start the experience! The brisket was so tasty.

The waiter was so nice and perfectly attentive while not being overbearing.

Our food was delicious! We will definitely be back.

Julio was our server and he was just over the top professional, friendly, and efficient. We always eat here when we visit Dallas and it is always great to know it will be well worth the visit. The sauces are great, with something for every heat taste. So glad we went. Thank you Julio

It was very busy and full at the time we dined there. Noise level was pretty high so we had to speak very loud to eachother lol. Nice variety of entrees to choose from on the menu. Wait service was good given how busy they were. I had the chicken tacos with the house coleslaw which was very good no complaints there but I tasted my friend's fried rice he ordered and it was lacking in flavor. Overall experience was good I would return.

The food here is always extremely good. My only complaint this time was that the margarita was a little on the strong side (maybe not a problem for some!) so I couldn't finish it! The restaurant is also always very noisy so you have to expect to shout if wanting to have a decent conversation. Could do with some noise-dampening fixtures. Otherwise, great food flavors and value for money
