Mesa Verde is under new management, and is working hard to make sure our service moving forward is very prompt, relax, and a great experience. New & updated menu items coming soon! We look forward to see old and new faces :-) 8$ Margarita Pitchers every Thursday night. Open mic ? Stop in and get lost in the vibes. SEE YOU TONIGHT !

Mesa Verde is not as good as it used to be. When we were there two days ago the opening time on their website for Sundays was wrong (we had 30 minutes to kill), the bill was wrong at the first attempt, and the second, and our server "had a problem" with our Mesa Verde gift certificate lacking an expiration date. I think he should have known that Maine State law prohibits an expiry period for gift certificates. I'll go somewhere else in future; you might want to, too.

The food at this restaurant was very poorly seasoned. Most of it wasn't seasoned at all. The empanadas were bland, the burrito I got came with plain brown rice, the filling had no seasoning. I noticed some cumin on my wife's fajita, other than that also very bland. Not even salt or pepper! Mexican is not that hard...throw some el-paso mix in there if you can't mix the spices yourself! Also, got the "sangria". This was actually red wine with seltzer water and some lime wedges in it... but in fairness I suppose you should always get the margarita's at a mexican place. Overall very dissapointed with the food, no real complaints about anything else though... so if you think most mexican food is too spicy, maybe you'll like it?

This was in all actuality the most bland and mediocre Mexican food that I have ever eaten. Maybe I have high expectations since my hometown is a LOT closer to the border. My husband and I paid $35 for WARM beer, clotty cheese dip, one glass of ice water (with NO refills) and chicken quesadillas that we very well could have made much better at home. And for one, who has EVER heard of a Mexican diner that doesn't offer chips and salsa when they seat you? We should have left then. I feel very much took. That $35 could have bought a lot of GOOD food.

October 1st, 2010 - It was getting a little late, and we were ravenous. After being turned away by another restaurant (who HAD tables available and didn't close for another twenty-three minutes), we dejectedly headed the thirty extra feet up the street to Mesa Verde which was also still open. We walked in and the hostess looked up at us. "Can you feed us?" I asked desperately, and within seconds we were seated; within minutes (LITERALLY WITHIN MINUTES) we had our dinner in front of us. Our waitress was accurate, fast, and enthusiastic (when she came to take our order I began to say, "I'm torn between the tamales and the chimi . . ." "OHMYGOD GET THE CHIMIS," she interrupted. "I'm sorry to cut you off. But they're like fried heaven! SERIOUSLY!"). The food was organic and delicious (although very heavy and kind of pricey), and the atmosphere was laid-back AND entertaining (they were playing female singers from the 80's and singing loudly to it). If you're in the mood for a genuine Portland, ME experience or a pitcher of margaritas (which are $6 on Thursday nights) or even deep-friend, cheese-covered pseudo-Mexican food that'll taste delicous going down but sit like a rock once it's in your gut (and sometimes, let's face it, we all crave food like that) - check this place out.
