Mi Mexico

Reviewed By maite b

Very good service. I love their spice sauce and the melon margarita. Good prices. I didn't like the chile verde pork, had a lot of fat couldn't eat it at all. Besides that, the rest was very good. I tried the blackberry margarita was good too.

El Rodeo

Reviewed By GoneAgain02

The last time we were here it was "ok". We decided to give it another try, because it used to be very good. We waited and waited for the server and ended up doing something I don't think we have ever done before... we walked out. We told the cashier who shrugged. End of story. A lot of Mexican restaurants in the area... go to one of them.

Chili's Grill & Bar

Reviewed By stone595

I lived in Dallas before this became a franchise, and was thrilled when it finally came to Des Moines. However, over the years the quality has eroded. Old Timer with cheese still a favorite, but not above average. Fries are good. Soups marginal. Chips and salsa probably the highlight. El Presidente margarita is worth it, with its own shaker.

Monterrey Mexican Restaurant

Reviewed By BrianGongol

Monterrey in Clive has three things going for it:1. The food is always delicious (I swear by the Guadalajara Special).2. Service is fast and friendly (rarely more than about five minutes from order to hot food on the table).3. The prices are perfectly reasonable (dinner out with the family never comes close to breaking the bank, and the portions are huge).You're guaranteed to leave with a full belly and a smile on your face.
