Reviews for El Meson

After tip, the total check was 100 dollars, for 2 entrees, 2 beers and a dessert. The steak fajitas I got were not remarkable and the vegetables were undercooked. The next morning I woke up feeling absolutely terrible and proceeded to vomit up all the fajitas, completely undigested, I ate no other food the previous day, so unless I got food poisoning from Folgers coffee, the culprit was El Meson. The restaurant was nice on the inside and the wait staff was very friendly.

Only thing that was good was the plantains. Fajitas were not hot or fresh, like I chopped up peppers and onions at home and warmed in microwave. Served on a regular plate not a hot stone. Strip steak was poor quality. Spanish rice was a ball of mush. Mashed potatoes texture rather than rice. Free bread was stale and chewy. Margarita was like drinking a sour patch kid. Super sour and not strong.

Have always enjoyed El Meson, but hadn't been in a few years. I feel that the food is very good (as are the drinks) and I truly enjoy the atmosphere and the service has always been top notch. It's a specialty type of food in the Dayton area bringing foods from Central and South America to the region. The staff and owners have always been very good to the community and that means a lot also.
