    I want to like this place but I can't! Way too expensive, unless you go between 10-12pm. Sub-par service. Waited almost an hour for drinks/food on a Tuesday night. Waitress lost our credit cards once!

    The Chimichanga is a forced to be reckoned with. Topped with a mildly-spiced red pepper sauce, & served with Mexican rice & black beans it’s everything you need wrapped in a tortilla.

    Whether you’ve got dietary restrictions or a just love veggies, try our vegetarian selection of burritos like the Chickpea Chili Burrito or the Angry Hippie Burrito and lots more.

    If you love chickpeas then you’ve come to the right place. Try the Chickpeas Chili, the Mahi Mahi Salad, the Chickpea Chili Burrito, the Super Mad Mex Enchilada & more!

    Epic beer selection, but go at happy hour. They've currently got some face-meltingly hoppy IPAs that go well with half price chicken wings. Also, good waffle fries.

    ask to be seated on the far edges in winter - the main doors will freeze you to death. your server will forget about you if you don't yell and flag them down.

    Monday’s are usually a drag. Make your Monday MUCHO MAD with our all you can eat burrito special from 4 – 10pm. Not to mention, Big Azz Margaritas are only $6 as well.

    Mad Mex Columbus · February 29, 2012
  • Mary Grace F.

    We sat here for 3 hours with poor service and mistakes on almost all of our dishes and WE paid for the mistakes. The food was excellent, but not worth the hassle.

    Mary Grace Fitzgerald · April 12, 2014
  • Dan S.

    Horrible food horrible service, took over 15 mins to get a drink each time and it was dead on a Sunday night. Food came out cold too & some of it tasted like kroger brand. Avoid

  • Jerrad B.

    Good non authentic Cali-Mex food. 30 beers on tap with some great craft beers. Come before 10:00 pm for a better dining experience.

    Jerrad Bloom · April 17, 2011

    Late night Mex after 10 half off. Service is usually slow so come prepared to wait or just get a big azz marg!

    rebecca b · August 17, 2015

    Want our Los Wingos minus the Los wingbonos? We offer up boneless wings with the same intensities and dressings, one size fits all.

    Mad Mex Columbus · February 29, 2012
  • Lindsay C.

    The Chopper Salad with steak or portobello with cilantro lime vinaigrette is the best thing ever. So satisfying.

    Lindsay Cowgill · July 26, 2013
  • Mike E.

    The only thing that stands out as remotely good is the guacamole. Stay away from all the other food, especially the tortilla soup

    Mike E. · December 21, 2009
  • Andrew W.

    Awesome vegan food here. Get the nachos grande made vegan and some tofu tacos - you'll have lunch tomorrow too.

    Andrew Warner · October 7, 2010
  • Blake W.

    There patio is great in warmer weather -- perfect place for a margarita, of which they have several flavors.

    Blake Wilder · February 4, 2012

    Potato taquitos were amazing! Decent place to watch the World Cup but it took FOR-EV-VER to get ANY service.

    Katie McDevitt · June 12, 2010
  • Drew S.

    I'd check in here twice a day if I could. These margaritas and black bean dip are out of this world

    Decent veggitarian fare all items similar stuff different way from burrito to enchilada to fajita. But still yummy!

    All of our salsas and dips are made fresh in-house, in small batches throughout the day.

    Mad Mex Columbus · February 29, 2012
  • Chelsea G.

    The fried tofu appitz sound iffy but its totally legit. The blue corn bread is to die for!

    Chelsea Gillespie · October 22, 2010
  • Hannah C.

    Appetizer to share, cup of soup or salad, choice of any entree, dessert to share and a champagne drink for 35$

    There's nothing wrong with it, but there's nothing special either. There are plenty of better options for Mexican.

    The best part about an extensive list of delicious beer is taking it to go in a Mad Mex Growler. Pick one up for only $5 plus beer.

  • Kam K.

    Food and service are almost always bad. Ok drinks - I only went here when I lived near campus!

    Kam King · October 8, 2011

    Love the half priced appetizers after 10pm. I highly recommend the tofu!!

    Johnathan Reynolds · August 11, 2014

    The pumpkin pie margaritas sound gross but are delicious. Taste more like apple cider than pumpkin.

    Crystal Krueger · October 7, 2010
  • Prince S.

    I've been here twice and the service has been pretty bad. But I love the food...quite the dilemma...

    Prince Swaray · December 20, 2012

    Our XX Cheese Dip and Black Bean Dip are spicier than you'd expect; get ready!

    Don't come if its busy: burnt nacho and awful service. Also the margaritas taste like crap.

    Kyle is the best server ever. Come between 10pm-12am for half off food.
