Good food, nice about of spice. Order and then sit and they bring it to you. Don't forget to grab chips and salsa in line

Got fresh tostada shells to go with my order as road snacks and they were almost as good the next day. Salsa like I've never had it... new and lively tastes in an informal atmosphere.

Yep. Just Eric

Hit and miss. Was customer #1 when they opened. That torta was perfect. Today's was cold; cheese didn't melt. I prefer their Red Bank location.

Unfortunately, I’d tell everyone to go to their Red Bank location. Be warned: “queso” is not liquid cheese- it’s a fried cheese cracker tower thing... we were very disappointed. And the ambiance is not as great either- very small, which makes sense for downtown I suppose, but means you’re stuck with a less than hospitable “grab and go, pay for every little thing” situation.

The tacos were excellent. Great flavor.

I had been to the original Mazunte, so when they opened this one downtown, I knew I had to try! The food in it's own is good, but the scope of the restaurant does not compare to the original. You get less food for more money, as everything is a la carte (you even have to pay for salsa, where the original has a salsa bar). I unfortunately also had to wait 10 minutes after all my friends got their food (when I was the second person to order). There was not a huge crowd in the restaurant, so having to wait so long was a little disconcerting. They did bring my food out soon after I asked. I know they are relatively new and trying to still get organized. I think I will still make the drive to the original, as I like the atmosphere and you get more for the money.

Good food, space and area a little funky. The Madison rd location is better but their seating situation is goofy. I'd give the Madison rd location 4 stars.

Slow slow slow slowww. It's not crowded just me and it took 20 mins for 2 tacos. Tacos are ok but the meat was way over cooked and I almost choked. I was struggling and walking around coughed so hard and loud to clear it and no one helped me. Bad health safety training for the staff! I left my other taco and walked out for water in my car. Cashier was unprofessional. Waitstaff were at social hour with each other. $1 for sauces when the other location is free! That's just dumb. Not cool. Don't bother going to this location. It's like night and day from Oakley :(

So great to have Mazunte downtown. Menu is slightly different. Missed some of my regular taco choices but some great ones here too. Like the tostadas better at the Taqueria location. Missed the fun salsa station too but let me tell you I'd forego either to get this downtown. I'll be a regular for sure

The tacos were delicious!

Charles Bazeley

Absolutely delicious. Highly recommend getting a mixture of tacos or the torta. Have had carnitas, chorizo, cochinita, and chile relleno so far. All tasty af

The food is good, it feels ala cart. Have to pay separate for salsa. The prices are a little more then the original restaurant on Madison.

The atmosphere, and staff are very nice. But honestly I am disappointed about my visit here. The oakley location's food quality was/is far superior to what I had here on 8/10/19. This location doesn't have a salsa bar, but instead sell small cups of salsa and chips separately. Not the biggest deal because they do have good salsa. Where it became not worthwhile was the tacos. The meat that we had on the tacos was over cooked and over seasoned (nothing like the oakley location) the diced up pork pieces felt like they were scraping my throat on the way down, next there were also just chunks of fat put into it (not attached to meat). I wont be back to this location.

Awesome tacos and tostadas. So delicious! Top notch for downtown.

The staff are nice people BUT ... If youre looking for taste this isnt the place .the chicken in the taco was over compensated with season and the amount of whatever you order in your taco isnt muxh at all , our soup was room temp and for what we paid it could of been alot better quality .was looking forward to a good taco lunch but was disappointed .not the end of the world and if they up the game i would. Give it a 2nd try ... I guess this is street taco style .

This new Mezunte is loud and cold, the food was a solid 4, but I was uncomfortable and wolfed it down so I could get out of there.

Donna Lomax

Had the Tlayudas with barbacoa today. It was delicious and quite filling. New favorite go to place. Can’t wait to try the tortas on our next visit.

I've been a huge fan of the Mazunte on Redbank and was ecstatic to hear they opened a location on Main St. downtown. Different menu but same amazing flavors, huge chips, house-made salsas and drinks. Perfect lunch spot!

Wow. I've always loved Mazunte. Food is great. Their new concept is a nightmare. Confusing process to order, confusing to pay, had to find our own silverware and napkins, left a tip, then got chased on the way out to be told we were supposed to clear our place. If you go here for the good food - know it is a DIY operation. IF I over return - zero tip and I'm getting carry out.

This establishment has been open less than a week and we made our first visit there tonight. We had high expectations and those were certainly met. The decor is really enjoyable and the food is very tasty. Everything is Uber fresh in the spices are just right. Looking forward to going back again and again.

Adrian Lara

Soooo sooo good!! I can’t tell you enough how delicious it is. Get going

Alex Jones

probably the best taco in Cincinnati. Took my girlfriend there for it's opening day. Amazing. We're both still raving about it. I've been to the one on Oakley also, she hadn't. Nice surprise to the both of us. Can't wait to go back.

Tried the new Mazunte on Main, downtown tonight (their 3rd day open). It's set up to help streamline the ordering process, which is probably necessary with a popular restaurant downtown. So, you order the hot foods/entrees at the first cashier, then you walk past them, and past rows of salsas you can pick yourself, a drink station with beers on ice, a cooler with Mexican sodas and Horchata(mmmm!), and guacamole. Finally there is a tortilla chip station with large and small bags of their house-made chips. Finally there is the cashier where you pay. They add up the side items and drinks to your meal order taken at the first cashier. Once people have been there before, the process will move more fluidly than it did on their 3rd night open (tonight). Food quality is what you'd expect from the Mazunte brand. The Carnitas taco was surprisingly spicy. The decor was modern, lots of cool "street art" that was painted directly on the walls in different styles. I'd definitely go back based on my first impression. I just hope this doesn't become a madhouse like the Madison Rd. location, but it probably will if people keep writing reviews like this.

Friendly staff! Casual dining. Great food. Fast service And super cool atmosphere! Enjoyed our first experience!

Made the mistake of coming in too soon after opening. In the past we have been to the original location and thought we would try it. Overpriced, cold food, plastic containers everywhere. I cant for the life of me try to make senses of the, I hesitate to use the word, design. I cant even describe it, I felt like I was eating in a junkyard or a dump.

Mazunte's Centro location is finally open and worth the wait! Their new downtown location features food from Oaxaca Mexico simple taco's, tostadas and new tlayudas, a Mexican style pizza. You walk in pick up menu, make your selections and then walk by the cantina style area with drinks, salsa, chips and then to the register to pay. The kitchen is open so you can see their delicious food made right in front of you. I selected a Chorizo Con Papas and a Lengua tostadas. I love the blue corn, house made and all of the sauces are amazing, so flavorful. They also have two new salsas: Amarillo - Yellow & spicy, Jalepeno rojo- red spicy salsa & good ole fresca- fresh salsa. I washed down my delicious lunch with an ice cold limeade. Congratulations Mazunte team on the opening of Centro and will be back for many more visits for the best authentic Mexican in town.
