The interior decorator at Mi Mexico has a sick sense of humor. The dining booths are hot pink, the walls are peach and green, and every once in awhile the eyes are helplessly drawn to a bunch of multi-colored fabric flowers. But on a Sunday evening the Meridian Plaza restaurant was packed and there was a wait for a table, so the decorating scheme was clearly not an issue.

The droves of people were gathered at Mi Mexico for the tasty Mexican food and they brought their kids, grandparents, and friends. The large menu has everything you would expect and a little more. Picky eaters will appreciate the choice of either corn or flour tortillas or shredded beef or ground beef. Kids will appreciate that there is a children’s Mexican meal offered and some American food on the menu, like cheese sandwiches. Adults will like the full portions, and especially the extensive drink selections. There are six different kinds of reasonably priced margaritas available (regular, flavored, gold, Cadillac, Chambord and Italian,) as well as mixed drinks, Mexican beer and wine.

As you would expect, the wait staff is fast and standing by with baskets full of warm chips and salsa before you can even sit down. The food is brought to your table quickly and the kitchen is a maze of artful moves by the servers, who reach over and under each other like ballet dancers with scalding hot plates. Flan, sopapillas, and ice cream are on the menu for dessert. One word of warning, if you are celebrating a special occasion, you may be asked to don a gigantic sombrero and someone might try to take your picture.
