Here is a review from the “Another food critic” blog:

Just east of downtown Dayton, Taqueria Mixteca is a hole-in-the-wall that you’d hardly notice if you drove past it. It’s far from the nicest parts of town where the gourmet chefs dream of $100 wine bottles and Michelin stars, but Taqueria Mixteca is the epitome of the service of online reviews: everybody seems to love this place. The glowing reviews are many. Having read them after the fact, I’ve found a lot of the strengths and weaknesses that so many others have acclaimed all have merit. This place makes some seriously good ethnic food.

Just about everything they put on your plate here is homemade, and it is delicious. The carne asada is juicy and cooked perfectly, though it can be a little tough if you let it sit too long. The refried beans are amazing; cooked perfectly and the right amount of sweet. It makes you want more. The really great thing is Taqueria Mixteca has a few kinds of salsa it serves; the appetizer chips and salsa have a pasty-spicy variety that goes well on the homemade chips, and there’s a very fresh salsa served with the main courses; chopped tomatoes, onions and peppers topped with avocados.

There are a few kinds of sauces that come with the food, too. One is a spicier, thicker mayo-like topping for burritos (which, by the way, are perfect lunch size and really cheap for the good food.) and there are two sweeter and more savory sauce. The certainly haven’t reinvented the wheel with these dishes, but they’re really outstanding and economical street taco stand-type foods. What’s better, there is a drive-thru option if you want it even more convenient.

The atmosphere of the restaurant is good; it’s a small place, sitting in a building that used to be another restaurant, and the seating is a little old. Still, the people are extremely friendly. They seem to have quite a few impassioned regulars with whom they were very friendly, but since I’d never been there they weren’t the same way with me. What’s more, the service was slow in spite of trying the place during a slow time. It’s an inconsistency and unfortunately it really hurts the experience.

I’ve never heard of this place before I tried it, and I’m really wowed about that. Taqueria Mixteca really epitomizes the hole-in-the-wall Mexican food, and a very humble atmosphere. I’m glad the owners are looking to expand the business by adding more locations. There’s a lot of hype surrounding the unassuming little joint at 1609 East Third Street, and if you haven’t tried it already, you should definitely make a visit to see what it’s all about.

Recommendations

  • There is a drive-thru option for food on the go.
  • The food is fresh and tasty, I would definitely recommend one of the fresh beef or carne dishes if you’re looking for something really tasty.
  • The burritos are perfectly sized, convenient and cheap too.

There was a time in our lives when we once considered Taco Bell to be really good Mexican food. It was during our high school and college years, when money was scarce and our late night cravings were curbed by a ritual “run to the border”.

After college, we started dining at various chain restaurants claiming to serve authentic Mexican cuisine, but they were no more than glorified Taco Bells. As the Big Ragu’s favorite band Survivor said, “The Search is Over”. We are officially in love with a little restaurant on East Third Street in Dayton called TAQUERIA MIXTECA which means “damn good Mexican food” in Spanish.

Taqueria Mixteca isn’t a fancy restaurant, it is one of those places that you may shoot a glance at while driving by. They don’t advertise, they don’t have a fancy dining room — we don’t even know if they have a bathroom! They do however, have a drive-thru. What the place lacks in character is compensated for by a diverse group of diners, with a great menu to match. The majority of dishes give you the option of ordering the kind of meat you want, ranging from chicken to tripe. They have three different homemade sauces and delicious homemade salsa. There is something for everyone…even you vegetarians out there!

On the day of our visit, Superfry and the Big Ragu ordered multiple tacos including: Chicken, Chorizo, Beef Tongue, and Ground Beef. We also decided to try the Pork Quesadilla and Enchiladas. We agree that these might be the greatest tacos we have ever eaten due to one factor — simplicity. While other places load on the cheese and sour cream, the only ingredients that you find here are meat, cilantro, onion, and a lime wedge all placed on a double corn tortilla.

Since we are two spicy individuals, we decided to try each one of their three homemade sauces and were not disappointed. One of Superfry’s favorite moments of this taco trifecta was making the Big Ragu try a Beef Tongue Taco. This was not an easy feat as The Big Ragu is picky about his meat. He avoids steaks at any cost claiming textural difficulties and is the only Italian Superfry has met who hates meatballs. Neither one of us enjoyed the Beef Tongue Taco, but it was quite amusing to see the Big Ragu squirm.

We didn’t know what to make of the Enchiladas when they brought them out because when we think of Enchiladas, we think of them topped with white cheese sauce. These were naked as the day we were born and had a red-orange glow. Again, the taste of the enchiladas spoke for themselves. Authentic, simple and the flavors were unique.

One of the biggest surprises was the pork quesadilla. The flavor was intense and fresh. It was probably our favorite item of the night.

The price for our meal was a great value. Our bill was only $21, a great price for all of the items we tried. Taqueria Mixteca was recommended to us by people who are from Mexico, or have spent a lot of time south of the border. Sure the El Toro and El Rancho Grandes have their place, but this is the closest thing to AUTHENTIC Mexican that you will find in the Dayton area. So get over to Taqueria Mixteca… VAMOS !!
