This is a Mexican restaurant that has great food. What makes it great? The flavors. This not a restaurant with bland food. Even the beans and rice have been seasoned, something that most Mexican restaurants don't bother with. Some have complained that the prices are high but the portions make it worth it. And the Happy Grande Burrito is HUGE!.... More

The food was good, but the waiter failed to mention that the credit card machine was broken. So you can imagine how awkward it was when we said only have a card. Then they said "well look for whatever cash you have and we will take that". We had about $9 in cash. Which we ended up giving the waiter... More

This Happy Mexican Restaurant use to be the best, back in 2008-2012 it was a really good place to eat. Currently it is horrible- ordered the shrimp, steak, chicken burrito, and they used onion as the stuffing. It was horrible....please dont waste your time or money....

First of all the greeters were great. The waitress was dead and unconcerned like she did not want to be there. What an experience for me and my husband on date night. Food was great until we both woke up the next morning with stomach viruses which lasted from Friday 28 to Sunday 30. We brought food home which went... More

Will NEVER visit again!!! Oscar the manager states that ever person must leave at 11:30pm. The restaurant closes at 11pm and at 11:05pm the security guard advises everyone that they have to finish all food and drinks at 11:30pm. I have never been in a restaurant and been told to rush my food and drink down in 25 minutes. We... More

On the basis of the bar after work and evenings, Happy Mexican is a solid destination. Alex, the bartender, is Class A. My margarita was made to order and exactly as requested: Real lime, 100% agave tequila, and Cointreau. Easy to win over my loyalty. Was also here for lunch earlier, and merely okay meal. Agree with other reviewers re... More

The food was good, but a bit.on the expensive side. The drinks are the highlight. Please please work on the customer service. My waiter was so DEAD, and disengaged. Food was good, drinks good, customer service made my experience awful, especially for the amount of our ticket. Management needs to improve the experience a customer has. Sorry just couldn't justify... More

The menu has a sticker placed on the front that says " guacamole will no longer be served with dinners. This is so we can make fresh guacamole and is available at an extra charge." The service was slow to non existant and food served cold. Another notice in the menu states " Once food is placed on your table,... More
