Love the salsa and chips. The chips are thin and the salsa was just the right temp and thickness. Mexican food is ok. So items are better than others, however the steaks are really good. They are good tasting, tender and cooked right. Staff all seemed very friendly.

The food is average fair Mexican food. The people are nice, otherwise I would give it a poor rating because the cleanliness is questionable.

If you like Mexican food. You will enjoy dining out at The Mexican Kitchen. Great food at fair prices. The restaurant has daily specials also. If you hungry for this cuisine, try Mexican Kitchen. You will NOT be disappointed.

Service could be better. The chips and salsa are very good. Sometimes you have to wait a while for your food. I will continue to go there.
