Ola from down ole South American Mexico way & memory lane finds me at my favorite Mexican restaurant here in Hamilton on the James Street North Strip that place is MESA.

I have frequently dined and had dinner with friends and my rating is a 5 of course. I have dined inside and had festive meals with friends out back. The best Nacho’s since my Hernandez’s Highway days in Toronto on the Yonge Street Strip. So with the summer heat & sun in the weather forecast think of Mexico, think food and remember Mesa.

Destination Mexico: “A place along the Gulf of Mexico along the Pacific Oceanside Highway and along the coast along the way. From the sandy beaches with the sun to the dancing and the music on the streets into the night”.

Now think of their food: “The Custom of Authentic Mexican food is more than something you experience, traditional Mexican food and the vibrant history and of the Mexican Heritage.

TASTE…SIGHTS…SOUNDS….& MESA is just that, from the Authentic decor as you enter their doors and to their extensive array of Mexican fares & delicious mouth-watering delights with every mouthful.

Did you know that since 2015-2020 Mesa is the Hamilton’s Spector’s “Platinum Winner” & “The Readers Choice Award” for their Mexican Cuisine. Check out their extensive menu of culinary cuisine and their delectable food, including burritos, nacho’s, tacos and much more. All that’s missing is the Sombrero, Maracas & music outside on the walkway as you enter this wonderful restaurant on James Street North.

Don’t feel like cooking? SKIP THE DISHES and order take out today. At present Mesa is operating on a pick up and delivery service but they hope to be opening up the restaurant by the time summer rolls around.

The Farmers Almanac has indicated a hot, hot, summer so bring the feel, the vibe instead of a BBQ outback have a traditional Mexican feast of sun, drink and merriment outback instead. Or if you prefer indoor dining your barkeeper & server Adrian would be pleased to serve you your specialty drinks & cocktails this summer.
