Cesar's Old Mexico restaurant is a new entity on E. Sunshine St, We stopped in to check it out and OMG was it good. Through a mixup in communication, I thought I was ordering beef enchiladas, while our server thought I was ordering a carne asada with red sauce. When it came I was surprised, but it smelled so good, I decided to give it a go. It was GREAT! One of the best Mexican meals I've ever had.My wife had a tamale and chicken enchiladas with mole. She said it was the best Mexican meal she could remember.Needless to say, Cesar's Old Mexico is now our favorite Mexican restaurant in Springfield. BTW, one thing you should know is that it is authentic Mexican, not Tex-Mex. Also, about half of the patrons eating there are Spanish speakers. I'm predicting Cesar's Old Mexico will have to move to bigger quarters before long.

We couldn't be more pleased! My wife and I were here for the first time (while on our honeymoon). The staff provided excellent service and were very attentive to our needs. I had the fajitas taco salad (with steak) & my wife ordered the Steak Mexicana (with 3 fajita wraps,T-bone steak, rice, refried beans, sauteed peppers and onions, guacamole, and sour cream). Both meals were excellent! The steak from each meal was done perfectly - tender and juicy. The prices were very reasonable. I endorse few restaurants, but whole heartedly recommend Puente Mexican Restaurant at 1111 E.Republic Road in Springfield,MO.
Average food, small menu, bad service. My rice was under cooked, small and hard. Meat was good but not much sauce. Like most Chinese restaurants around town, the food is bland. Portions were small, I was looking for some decent Orange Chicken, but you can't find that here. I got the General Chicken instead. I should have just gone across the street to McDonalds. At least there I know I will be getting poor quality when I order. Sigh...
