Let's start with the fact that Mejico doesn't serve fancy modern Mexican cuisine. This cozy restaurant, located in a converted house, offers homestyle Mexican food that's simply done, but also excellent. It's exactly that you would expect from an owner like Obed de la Cruz, also one of the owners of such East Valley Mexican spots as El Sol Mexican Cafe & Bakery, El Zócalo Mexican Grill, and Mangos Mexican Cafe. There are classic dishes such as enchiladas de rez, shrimp relleno, and mole de pollo, but here they're well-executed and delivered to you at a white-tablecloth-covered table. The atmosphere is charming, the service is friendly, and though the price point is higher than your typical neighborhood restaurant, we're more than happy to shell out for the simple, high-quality fare.
