I’ve been going to this restaurant since it first opened and I always get the same thing, I visited last night and ordered 2 chorizo tacos and 1 campechano tacos for pick up, the guy on the phone confirmed, then I called back and told...them I would be late to pick up, I got my bf to pick it up and upon arrival the a random lady who I assume is the owner’s wife (because of how unprofessional and arrogant she was) asked my bf if he was there for pick up and he said yes, she said the “chimichangas” were ready and when my bf told her we had ordered tacos she has the nerve to say no you ordered chimichangas, my bf then proceeded to tell her that we did not, we specifically ordered tacos and the guy on the phone CONFIRMED THEM I even asked him if the campechanos came with beef and chorizo and he said yes, THIS LADY THEN proceeds to argue with my bf about how she had to re make the order for us because we were late WHEN I TOLD HER I WOULD BE THERE LATE AND TO HAVE THEM READY LATER WICH SHE AGREED TO. My bf left the restaurant heated so I decided to go in and order in person.. The minute I finish placing my order (again 2 chorizo tacos and 1 campechano TACOS) WE REPEATED this to not have any confusion of miss communication (the lady at the cashier looked new) the total was off so my sister asked at least 3 times if that was 2 orders of chorizo tacos and 1 campechanos and THE GIRL CONFIRMED THE ORDER so we paid THEN THIS SAME LADY OLD COMES OUT and says “you’re the pick up oder, you was on the phone with me” and I said yes it was me, but I didn’t order ANY chimichangas I ordered tacos, she then starts getting super unprofessional and starts arguing with me AFTER SHE JUST ARGUED WITH MY BF and starts telling me how she had to re make them and that I specifically ordered chimichangas on the phone, no I ordered tacos, I even asked the guy what comes in the campechano tacos SHE THEN interrupts me and says “yeah you only said 2 chorizo one campechanos that’s why” I told her I LITERALLY HAVE NO IDEA what a chimichanga is and I had no reason to order that or to lie let alone order anything I didn’t like and if there was ANY confusion the restaurant should have confirmed the order instead of assuming, and she just shook her head and said yea yeah, THEN as soon as our order is ready, we collect if and there is ONLY ONE order of chorizo tacos And ONE campechanos, so my sister asked NICELY “hi I had ordered 2 chorizo tacos orders and I only got one” THIS OLD LADY has the nerve to snap at her and say “this is the problem you people don’t know what you’re ordering” I am appalled at this response, specially since this whole mess IS THEIR FAULT they took no responsibility, instead they argued the whole time and the old lady was basically making us pay for stuff we did not order just because their staff messed up NOT ONCE Or TWICE BUT 3 TIMES my sister is too kind she just said she wanted to buy one more order and we left as soon as we got it. I am so disappointed about how the whole staff handled this, specially the owner’s wife, she is definitely entitled, disrespectful and flat out unprofessional This makes me so upset since we have never been treated so poorly.we never received any apology EVER the old lady just argued and taught with every single one of us individually instead of fixing their mistakes.More

Wonderful place. The food was the best outside of Mexico we have tasted. We asked for take-out because we live far from Barrie so they made up an incredible taco package of all fresh ingredients. 5 stars ( out of 5). 👍

Not fancy. Not in a great location really. But the food. Oh, the food. Totally amazing. If you want the real deal Mexico food this place is where you want to go. Great service and very clean. Plus they have a small retail space to...buy some Mexican prepackaged goods. Price is also excellent. We ate there twice in 3 days. Will be going back for sure!!!More

We're from Northern Ontario and really wanted something that we couldn't get where we come from. I suggested authentic Mexican to my son who was all over it. Tables were socially distance but everyone was full. This is clearly a gem in the Barrie area....The wait staff was very helpful with friendly advice about which dishes to try. My son had the chicken flautas which were amazing. I had the three meat mix with chicken pork and chorizo sausage which I'd order again in a heartbeat. We got three empanadas in each available flavors. I don't know what was in them but I do know they were to die for. I can't say enough good stuff about this place and all for a very reasonable bill.More

Seriously one of the best places in Barrie. The food is amazing, fresh and full of flavor. Not to mention the portions and price are great. This is slowly becoming my favorite go to place. You can really tell they know what they are doing...and care about their food.More

You literally can't get chilequiles anywhere else in Barrie. Ive had them many times, and only had poor service ONCE, which I haven't mentioned to the owners yet. But if you get actual Spanish speaking staff, you are WAY better off and they are super...friendly. If you get takeout chilaquiles though, Sauce on the side is KEY!More

This was our second experience with The Mexican House. We picked up take-out and had enough for two meals with the portions we received. There was a little glitch with our order that had been called in about 90 mins before we wanted it. When...I arrived to pick it up, the mistake was discovered, acknowledged, and the food came out fast! We will be back there again and again.More
