The best Mexican food I've ever eaten. Great service and great prices. We are just visiting here and stopped to ask locals the best place to eat Mexican food, this was the recommendation. I'm so glad they did. Absolutely great. We went for the first time for dinner on Friday night we enjoyed it so much we decided to go... More

Best Mexican restaurant in Denton. The service is always pleasant, accommodating, and quick. They used to get my orders wrong, but that hasn't happened in ages. The salsa is homemade and yummy. The queso is also good and I'm assuming is made there as well. Flavors are clear and strong, though I always ask for a side order of fresh... More

The atmosphere and décor were relaxing and the server was very attentive and polite. I enjoyed my breakfast and coffee while I quietly reviewed my emails and news (no WIFI, had to create a hotspot from my phone). I was not adventurous this morning so I just had the huevos rancheros plate which included refried beans and tortillas. Oh, and... More

The wife, daughter, and I ate lunch at Mazatlan Restaurant and were impressed at the good Mexican food and service. The wife had tamales and a crispy beef taco, the daughter had the Chimichanga, and I had the spicy tomatilla smothered beef and Bean burrito. We all agreed that it was very good food and we will definitely eat there... More

My husband I have been eating at Mazatlan since our college days. The food and service are always excellent. I always save room for the pralines! Love this place. It's one of the best in Texas, imho.

My husband and I love this place. It's a little hidden back on University Drive/380, but I love that they can always seat us immediately. They have great food, attentive servers, and free queso at lunch time!

I used trip advisor and yelp to find this place and they did not steer me wrong! I'm visiting from CA and didn't think I'd find good Mexican food in Denton, Texas... I'm happy to say I was wrong! This place was probably the best Mexican food I've ever had. Our waiter (ironically he was also from Ca) was super... More

Not much on atmosphere, but the food is good. The chips, salsa and queso they start you out with is tasty. Good service. Would definitely go again!

I was anxious to learn why Matzalan has so many cars on its parking lot. I have eaten at many Mexican restaurants in my lifetime and this is one of the lowest rated. Service was "fast and rude" and the food (simple enchiladas) was barely edible and the margaritas ($5.00 during happy hour) were very weak and mostly lime juice.... More
