My favorite thing to eat here is the Sancho, without sauce. It's always soft, warm and full of melted cheese and ground beef. Of course they have all the usual items and 3 different types of salsa for your chips but this is my favorite. Prices are reasonable and service is always good. The one on National is where we...

We've eaten at Mexican Villa for more than forty years and it's still consistently good with flavors that are the same every time we eat here. We also love the three salsas and always take some home with us.

Mexican Villa is a part of Springfield food culture. People either love it or hate it. Don't visit here looking for fajitas or salsa. They are known for burritos enchilada-style. It's a large flour tortilla stuffed with beans and ground beef, covered in an enchilada sauce, with lettuce on top of it. It is an experience but know what you... More

Ummmm. We came here based on a recommendation and wish we hadn't. The food was just ok, and the salsa tasted like runny tomato sauce. Maybe we are used to different flavor profiles and Mexican food being that we are from Arizona? Server was nice. Just not for us.

What is going on at Mexican Villa! Everything is so much better than before and they cater!*€¥•#? We have enjoyed a few catering that bring their traditional wonders to our office. The taco bar and queso is fabulous and the enchiladas are delicious! Not sure who woke up who but this 60 year old icon is being renewed with decor,... More

Hands-down the worst Mexican food I have ever eaten in my whole entire life! Seriously. Save your money and your taste buds and go to Taco Bell. The cheese dip tasted like somebody melted down a block of American cheese and added milk to it. The salsa had no heat and was sweet and sugary. Disgusting. The service however was... More

I totally love this stuff. Been eating it pretty much my whole life. It's not the most authentic Mexican food, but it's so good. Warning: The hot sauce is addictive. :)

Picked up a large carry out order for a dinner party we were having. Upon arriving home I discovered MV left two meals out of the bags. I called them and they admitted it was their mistake. I asked that they deliver the missing orders. Millissa refused and said I could either drive back (approx. 3 miles) and retrieve the... More

I had the half order of enchilada style burritos. I also ordered a half order of Guacamole. This was more than enough food for me. I even took some home! Great food and good service.
