(Note: This is my 2008 review for the Mexico Restaurant that was incorrectly classified under Little Ceasars nearby.)
I love Mexican food with no question. When I first moved to Greensboro, I used to go to Mexico on Elm almost weekly, sometimes a few times a week. Now, I go infrequently and here is why.
I find MUCH better tasting Mexican food and overall experience at La Hacienda in Greensboro. The frozen Margs are very tasty though at Mexico. I will also say, they manage to keep a good restaurant rating which is a plus whenever I do eat there.
There has been a number of hands changed by Mexico on Elm it seems, and different employees over the past few years. When I began going nearly 6 years ago, Sal ran this location with another young Hispanic "techie" guy. Then, I saw different faces and more different faces, different managers and now, I honestly don't know who owns or manages it. It's not the same place as it was when Sal was there though there were times when Sal was very nice and chatty with visitors, other times withdrawn and only speaking when necessary. I'm not sure what happened, but because of what happened, I can only give this spot 2 stars.

My wife and I visit this restaurant three to five times a month and have done so for about a year now. I must say that there is real consistency and very good food here on every visit. The Pico de Gallo is a side item of which I am particularly fond, and I usually order three helpings of it. Between the two of us, I think we must have ordered every item on the menu and the only thing we do not care for is the special enchilada sauce. But you can ask for a cheese sauce substitute if you want enchiladas and they will accommodate you. The Margaritas are a good value, and the service is fast and friendly. There are some areas in the restaurant that are a little warm in the summer and some are cold in the winter, but they'll move you if you just ask them to. The restrooms are always absolutely spotless and in fact the whole restaurant is always very clean. They also have a location on Battleground and we like it as well, but the one on North Elm is our favorite. We like to try out our limited Spanish on the manager and he seems to really enjoy it, while we are slowly polishing our Spanish speaking skills and growing our vocabulary somewhat. I travel extensively in the interior areas of Mexico and this restaurant holds it own quite nicely when compared to the restaurants in Mexico.
