Its original Mexican and Latin menu is comprised of authentic favorites of freshly smashed tableside guacamole, seafood ceviches, savory salsas, fresh salads, and main dishes of steak, chicken, pork and seafood including the chef’s own Grandma Paula’s family recipes. Mago Grill’s menu also offers the classics: suiza-style Burritos, Enchiladas, and Fajita’s including a Mago-style creation served in a hot molcajete.
