-----Terrible Experience--- - Ran out of Rice, Stale Chips, Paul (owner, cook, manager, etc.) and Waitress were very RUDE, this place makes me want to CRINGE! 7/1/2011

My friend and I came here a few weeks ago around 9:15pm. It was a Tuesday night, nothing unusual. I’ve been here before and service and food were very good. 1. It was 10 minutes before our waitress came up to seat us and she didn’t even know if she wanted to seat us because it was 9:15pm and they closed at 10pm (we said we would leave if she didn’t want us to stay and with an attitude she said it was fine) 2. It took another 10-15 minutes for her to come over to take our drink order 3. Received our STALE chips and after we said something the waitress said ‘fine I’ll just throw them out, we don’t have any more because we were really busy tonight’ 4. We both ordered Diet Coke’s which were awful so I requested water (she never mentioned that they don’t serve Coke or Pepsi products) 5. Ordered a dish without beans, which my waitress said ‘You’re not going to like that just plain’ 6. Waitress came out and said they were out of rice for the night (how do you run out of rice and chips at a Mexican restaurant) 7. Asked to talk to the manager (owner Paul) who came up to me and said ‘I’ve heard you’ve been complaining about everything since you walked in the door’ (I’m sorry that is NOT how you talk to customers you are meeting for the first time… so he went on about how busy they were tonight and that’s why they ran out of food, chips run out all the time because they are handmade, they don’t have Diet Coke they have RC Cola, he works 80 hours a week (not my problem- get some help then), and then told us to get out of his restaurant 8. I will NEVER go back and cringe every time I have to drive past or hear the name of this place more

Fraudulent charges 11/16/2010

Good: Service, drinks, atmosphere. Bad: Being taken for an idiot. Improvements: More trustworthy staff. Other: My friend and I went this Friday for a little break from the work week. The music was hilarious because it was like J-Lo but it was still a fun time. The drinks were really strong; great bartender. The service was surprisingly good considering how packed it was! The only thing is if you go here CHECK YOUR BANK STATEMENT for the next week because I checked my bank statement one day and saw my card had been charged as I had signed for. Then I checked my statement a few days later and Mex had charged my card a. more

Mex Restaurant 5/7/2006

MEX 295 Alexander St. Rochester, NY 14607 (585) 262-3060 Walking up to Mex I got a little sentimental. This used to be Crème de la Crème where I asked my senior prom date to be my boyfriend (which lasted 2 months) and where I discovered my love of fabulous desserts(still going strong). Walking in through the throngs of people on a Friday night, I found it to be a great mix. I always like a place that can attract 20 something’s and their parents and still have a great atmosphere. We first grabbed a few Guinness ($4.50) at the bar. For the crowd, it wasn’t too long before we were sipping away. Why didn’t we try the Mexican beer? Well, I didn’t think about it until halfway through the first drink. The SO indicated he should have really tried the El Destructo Ale. After chatting with some friends outside, we decided we were sufficiently starved and ready to eat. Walking up the stairs to the restaurant portion, we were enthusiastically greeted and promptly seated. One thing you will notice throughout Mex is these great murals. They are everywhere depicting Mexican life. The one I thought was pretty interesting was the day of the dead couple. From what I understand now thanks to Google, the Day of the Dead is a pretty festive event remembering and celebrating the dead, and the continuity of life. Our server greeted us promptly and we put in another round of beer. We had some salsa and tri-colored chips. Now before I go any further, I must say that Mexican is hard for us to eat and enjoy. The SO has lived in Southern California, Texas and we both have lived in Las Vegas. That means we had the opportunity to eat a lot of Mexican. Move out of those areas and the interpretation of Mexican can be interesting. I found the salsa to be okay with a tangy taste instead of the hotter mix I enjoy. We placed our order and I decided to try one of the specials, Chicken Chimichanga ($13.00) while my SO ordered 2 Cheese Enchiladas ($11.00). We bypassed the appetizer and dessert this go round (I promise to not let that happen very often!) Our food was delivered hot and fast. I tore into the Chicken Chimicanga. I found the deep fried tortilla perfect, the chicken tasty but was a tad disappointed at the lack of spice to bring it all together. It was still good, and definitely filling. With a side of black beans and sour cream to finish it off, overall I enjoyed my dish. My SO found the enchiladas not too bad. That was his exact words. Going forward I will do a small taste test myself. They used plain rice, and topped the enchiladas in an enormous amount of cheese. The portion looked substantial and included black beans and sour cream. I would come back to Mex, just to have another look at the murals and this time actually drink some Mexican beer. The food could use another taste test. Eat Out Rochester: http://eatoutrochester.blogspot.com/ more

Great Margaritas! 7/18/2005

Mex has fantastic Margaritas, and only $4 each! They have many frozen versions, including peach, strawberry, and regular Margaritas. The bartenders are hilarious. They are a show all of their own. They are located right next to the Blue Room, which is not nearly as much fun. Mex also has a full Mexican food menu. The nachos are fantastic, and plenty to feed your friends! They also have a small outdoor porch area, which is nice in the summer. This is a great happy hour hangout. It gets pretty crowded later at night. Make sure you watch the Virgin Mary at the bar light up when the phone rings! Also the mural on the wall as you come in was painted by a local artist. Nice atmosphere! more
