My Husband and I are Mexican Food Junkies so we were super excited to see that the closest restaurant to us was Mi Mexico when we moved to New Smyrna Beach. I was born and raised in California and excellent authentic mexican food is available everywhere, so I may be a little picky because I've had the best of the best, not to mention my hubby lived in San Diego for awhile and would frequent little taco trucks and restaurants on the other side of the border. MI MEXICO HAS THE YUMMIEST CHIPS AND SALSA...I want some right now!!! They also have great chicken, big chunks of white meat seasoned and cooked perfectly...I don't typically order chicken at Mexican restaurants, but I took a bite of someone else's and it was good...I am including this, because I am generally creeped out chicken that I haven't prepared myself...I don't like dark meat or any thing mysterious looking with veins in it...Not the case, their chicken is perfect! This may sound odd to some of you, but their diet coke is special...it is soooo good...really cold and the carbonation/syrup ratio is perfect...My husband says the same about the regular coke...we also don't drink soda at home, so we kinda of behave like crack addicts at restaurants getting lots of refills. I may just go there to get chips, salsa and a diet coke after I write this. We always get seated and served very quickly, everyone is super friendly...

BUT HERE IS THE THING...

They refuse to put rice on my burrito. Sometimes I want a burrito with beans, cheese, rice and sour cream...sounds like a perfectly simple request especially at a Mexican Restaurant right? Nope...they don't serve a burrito with rice on it and they refuse to add it...I feel like I am in a Seinfeld Episode every time I go there, because every time I ask and no one will do it. Now you can order a side of rice and they will put that rice on the very same plate next to the burrito, but not inside...ugh this bugs me enough to only give 3 stars.

The only other thing I have to say negatively about this place is the type of cheese they use gets a little rubbery as it starts to cool, so I don't recommend getting anything where the main ingredient is cheese, like a cheese enchilada or plain cheese quesadilla. On other dishes that have more ingredients don't skip the cheese, it's not bad with lots of flavors.

This place is very popular because it's cheap. The food is typical Mexican fair and not particularly noteworthy. If you're looking for excellent Mexican food, go elsewhere.

The food was excellent and the wait staff were extremely courteous. The shrimp fajitas were delicious and the Sangria was heavenly. The ingredients were fresh and somewhat authentic. The white cheese dip was awesome. Prices fair.

Okay so it is a little ways off the beaten path... beachside New Smyrna, but great food.

I always get the #6... taco, burrito and enchilada with chicken. The plate is huge and it only runs $6. Wow. The staff is authentic and nice, the food runner (guy who brings the food) is great... his arm is loaded all the way up to his shoulder and he never drops it. Honestly, I can't rave enough about this place. We take all our friends and family there. Yum.
