Our first time there and we were not disappointed. The buffet had a nice variety and was hot and tasty. The menu also had a lot of choices and my Seafood Chimi did not disappoint. The hostess (owner?) was very friendly and attentive to whether...More

Arrived around 11:30 and was seated right away. Waitress brought salsa and chips! Ordered the taco lunch with hard shells. Very little meat with lots of cheese and lettuce, no tomatoes! Sides were rice and beans which spread over plate and quickly became cold.

They did almost too good of a job taking care of me. Server was new and admitted it, she and the owner(?) checked in constantly, and the food was better than I've had at most Mexican places. It's a small place but it's spunky, and...More

The food and service are great. Bring a big appetite the portions are huge. The staff takes great care to ensure that every diner has what they need. Prices are not bad either

This is actually a pretty good place to eat. The food is well prepared,but portions are small. Do not expect this Mexican food to be spicy. The service is excellent. The food is a bit overpriced for the amount one receives.

All that is best in Mexican cuisine. Great service, happy, friendly faces. They aim to please. Try the Burrito Mexitano...it will fill you up. The decor is bright and colorful with cozy booths and/or tables for larger groups. I will certainly return.

The decor is a bright welcome in a northern Michigan winter: color everywhere! The food is very good, portions a bit too big for me (but that’s ok, it means another full meal at home the next day.) I have had the seafood enchiladas, fajitas,...More

Mangos does all things Mexican, some are quite spicy but they do realize that other folks can't do high spice. So there are less spicy choices too. Just ask and they will explain a dish for you. Also do burgers, fries, etc... More
