Food was outstanding. After waiting patiently we asked if there was an issue And were informed that the kitchen had some problems as they had two no shows. No apology was extended.

I've been to Mex a few times and it never disappoints. I'd given it a 5star rating but I find the alcoholic drinks pricey and this time it took our entres quite awhile to arrive. This is more of an upscale Mexican restaurant but without the upscale pricing for food. The carnitas tacos entee is outstanding and so is the taco salad entre which easily feeds two people, especially after you've started with their delicious chips and salsas! Don't hesitate to try this restaurant! Our server was excellent .

My husband and I love this restaurant! The decor is beautiful, and the food was amazing. I can't say enough about the roasted spaghetti squash! Also, our server was very friendly and helpful. We have already recommended this restaurant to several people.

The service was very average to slow. The food took quit a while to get to us. It was not all that good, not as good as previous visits. It was super loud. I will not be going again.

I absolutely love this restaurant! Food is great! I haven't had one thing I didn't like. The drinks aren't watered down. The service is great and the atmosphere is perfect.
MEX is Awesome!
Mex is one of my favorite restaurants in the general area. The margaritas are perfect, burritos delicious, and everything in between. People like to complain about the chips & salsa not being free but I have no problem paying for them. The chips are perfectly crispy and thick and MEX's salsa selection is always fresh.
The food and service were great. A little slow on getting the food out, but that gave everyone a change to talk and catch up. Not a complaint!

We have been to Mex several times lately. The food and service is always excellent. We have actually had the same waiter a couple of times. I think his name is Michael. He's really knowledgeable and suggested the "everything guac", which was really good. The cod and the shrimp tacos are my favorite. The wine is a little pricey but I'll still order it.
A very good Mexican restaurant with a flair to enhance the flavor a of their sides in particular. Great interior design and the outdoor seating area is very pleasant.

Tacos were very, very, very dry. Burrito was meh. Not planning a return trip. Way too expensive for the food or experience.
Excellent dinner experience
The food was amazing! The server was knowledgeable, helpful and fun. She offered us great suggestions as it was our first time. We will definitely be back!
Decent food, great atmosphere
The food was decent but the interior is very nice. Unfortunately the air conditioning wasn't on so we were sweating eating our meals but other than that no complaints.

Right when you arrive, you realize that you have arrived to an upscale restaurant. The place is BEAUTIFUL! Our seating was very nice, the weather was nice and we felt as if we were sitting outside. I do not believe the pictures on their website do this place any justice, definitely a must see. You can tell the food is prepared with fresh ingredients. If I was to complain about anything, this restaurant is a little pricey. But overall, worth coming to and giving a try.

Great place to eat. Whether you're there for date night, out with kids, or with a large party, MEX never disappoints!
Mexican with a modern ecclectic twist
Very friendly staff, from the moment you walk through the door. The waitress was attentive and welcoming, like someone you already know, even though it was a first visit. The food was phenomenal! The décor is not what you expect in a Mexican restaurant. I kept finding more interesting things as I continued to look around. I would definitely recommend this gem to others!

One of the nicest new restaurants to come out in our area in awhile. Has an "eclectic" décor, high energy atmosphere, great choices on menu without being overwhelming, and the service was superb. This is my 3rd or 4th time there and will definitely go there again.

Their Mexican food is the best I've had in a restaurant. The guacamole and salsa is amazing & the homemade chips are so good. I also love their margaritas. The sour sugar that they rim the glass with is just an added bonus for your tastebuds! I highly recommend Mex is if you are in the mood for great quality Mexican food.
Too loud even had a microphone!!
We were 5 woman trying to have a nice dinner. There was a party on the upper level that was so loud we could hardly talk. They even had a man in the microphone!!!! We won't be back

Carnitas are to the moon and back. Guacamole was tops. All in all a really great place to come from Mother's Day. Had a hella good meal!
Someone Help the Kitchen
Server was very slow and it seemed like the kitchen staff was over matched for the occasion. The food was good but no better than most Mexican Restaurants that are half the price or less.

Food was decent but had to wait for our RESERVED table for entire party to arrive. So no drink n relax at table while you wait. THEN they gave us awful table directly in Sun OUTSIDE when several tables were available inside. Asked to move n took FOREVER. Seemed as if they did not care about us at all. Never go back for sure.

Guacamole appetizer was fresh and delicious. Lots of flavor and the cilantro was great. For brunch their breakfast burrito was huge and very tasty - eggs, chorizo, black beans, rice - sooo good

My first time at MEX with my family was an A+! My wife and I enjoyed our Blood Mary's, and we all enjoyed the food and ambiance! A return trip is a must!
I had heard the Margaritas were good so we gave it a try, decor is as someone described it "something from Alice in Wonderland", a bit too noisy for us. Chips and Salsa were very good and the food was acceptable but not as good as we had hoped. looked like an okay place for a small party or gathering but not for a Mexican meal per say. We love Mexican food and we missed it here.

The wait staff handled our group well, with arrivals at different times. They were able to issue separate checks without a fuss. The only negative was that the music was a little too loud, so we were unable to hear each other across a big round table.
Different Food, Different Atmosphere
My daughter had been wanting to try Mex for a while so we went for Administrative Assistant's day. The decor in Mex is very different with ropes and hanging lightbulbs, but hey we like different. The salsa and chips were wonderful, some of the best we've had. My daughter had the chicken salad and she didn't really care for the dressing. I had the Ceviche and again, I like how it was prepared but wasn't crazy about the dressing, could have had a little bit more lime. My co-worker had the burritto which she said was great. It's a nice place for the younger generation, I'm not sure I'll come back for fear of getting a table squished next to someone else and that's not my thing, but for a unique menu and different atmosphere I think it's the place to be.
This is a cool restaurant with a cool vibe. The servers are great and very attentive and it's some of the best food I've ever had at any restaurant. The price matches the food and it's a great value. There will definitely be return visits from myself and my family in the future.
Great for salad lunch
If you like salads for lunch, Mex (like it's sister restaurants Beau's and Social) offers a salad bowl where pick the ingredients from an extensive list, all at no extra charge. The salad is huge and delicious and very fairly priced (as are the chips and salsa, which are extra). Nice atmosphere and decor.
This is a very cool restaurant however overpriced for what it is. Wine was $13 a glass for the option of a 9 ounce pour. Did not see an option on the menu to purchase by the bottle. Food prices were higher too for what we got. I asked for an extra tortilla and she brought two on a plate and charged me an extra dollar. Seriously? The service did not reflect the prices either. Our total bill was almost $100.00 for two people for Mexican food. I will not be going back

Always delicious! I don't think I've ever had less than perfect food here. They are consistent. Service is always timely although now and then it takes a minutes to find your server to get the bill. My only complaint: it's cold inside! Went several times in the winter and if you sit by the big front windows, be prepared to keep your coat on. (Great margaritas!)

Ambiance was different, yet very nice atmosphere. Wasn't very excited about areas of close seating, felt like we couldn't talk privately. Also, pricing was expensive and didn't feel like the food was worth it.
Mex is one of our favorites
We go to Mex a lot whether it's just the two of us our a group going out for a night out. It's a great upscale casual location where you can order good food and it's not way overpriced. Sometimes it is busy though and that can cause slow service, but generally it's not too bad service-wise.
Love this place and the Chef knows his flavors
This was my second time visiting Mex and I was craving it! I brought my mom and she loved it too. Every detail from the interior design, food, flavors, drinks and service has been wonderful. I noticed the chef has a new place in Birmingham and I can't wait to try it as he chooses his flavor mixtures very well. The Margs are great too.

Delicious food. Try the chili!
Our food took over an hour to arrive. I myself am in the food service industry (server) so I tend to give a lot of leeway when it comes to these things. However the server never even acknowledged that our food was taking so long. Yes it was a busy night but by the time our food came the place was pretty much empty. Also, all we had were tacos. Our bill was pretty high, which is understandable because we had drinks, but I kind of felt cheated after the experience. This was our third time at Amex. The first two times we didn't have very good service either, but after this last time we won't be coming back. Just in closing, our server was attentive when it came to getting us new drinks which was appreciated.
