Food and drinks were ok. There is a farm next door so there was a stench of manure that was so strong we couldn’t eat outside. The service was good, but overall the experience was just ok.
We wanted a quick. Quiet dinner and we figured we try Metzys on a rainy Wednesday. Didn’t choose to eat outside this time as it was breezy, but well protected and covered dining area with heaters. Inside, we were one of two tables, so social distancing was no problem. Staff friendly efficient and well masked. Food was delicious and a bit different and fresh in comparison to other standard Mexican restaurants. My husband had a chicken Chimichanga the size of a small loaf of bread, beans and rice. Saved half before even starting to dig in! I chose a carne asada taco with some fresh cilantro and lime, and a chicken taco, both delicious. The chicken had just enough of a bite but not too spicy. It had a mango salsa accompanying it. Do give the local small proprietor a try, you won’t be dissatisfied. They have an extensive assortment of local craft beers!
First time here. Delicious food, tasty margarita and great IPA beer selection! Outdoor seating with heaters. 👍🏻
we were waiting more than 20 minutes for some one to come and serve us. I tried to go inside but door was locked and could see service people inside. One other table was waiting for service, What a waste of our time ..will not do this again!
Food delicious as always! I felt very safe outside - tables far apart, away from downtown so no hustle and bustle. Server Trinity was fantastic - wore mask and gloves. Very friendly, fast, nice but not hovering. Great all around experience for lunch!
Great Mexican food with some very spicy options available
Such a cool place and awesome food! We ate outside, and the train was a little loud when it came in, but it was still great place to celebrate.
Great guacamole! As a native of San Diego, that's high praise. Amount of fish in the fish tacos disappointing. We live near the ocean. Fish is plentiful. The piece in each taco was about the size of my thumb, no joke. Service was mediocre: never brought the waters we'd asked for, took forever to come back after going to retrieve things. My friend and I are not high maintenance customers, but these things were worth mentioning. Overall, not a bad experience, just not great.
We ate outside and nice breeze on a very hot day! Wonderful service, food, drinks. Good value too! We will be back for sure!!!
When my party of 5 and I arrived at Metzy's exactly on time for our reservation, the restaurant was closed up tight. There had been no notice from Open Table or any note on the door at the restaurant. We were celebrating my sister's wedding anniversary. VERY DISAPPOINTING. Metzy's Catina has not closed for business. They are still taking reservations. Open Table should drop it.
Service was slow and the food was so,so.
Food was amazing and we couldn’t have asked for a better waitress! We’ll be back plenty and if you haven’t tried Mexican Street Corn you need to because it’s an EXPERIENCE! Oh and ask for extra napkins, you’ll thank me later.
Food was extremely salty and the rice and beans were really bad. Our server was extremely nice and we adored her! However, I waited for 15 minutes for a straw and we barely got service. We also had to sit at a table in a single file line facing a wall as opposed to being able to face eachother during our meal. When we asked to switch our table they told us no because the other tables were reserved, but they stayed empty the entire night.
Have heard great things about Metzy’s but unfortunately was pretty disappointed. My husband and I shared chips/guac to start and had tacos for our entree. The chips and guac were good, but my tacos were cold and my husband wasn’t impressed with his. The steak on the tacos was really tough and his chicken tacos were soggy. I had two of the strawberry margaritas and the first was excellent, but the second tasted completely different. Our server never checked on us and didn’t ask how our meal was when we got the check. Don’t think I’d go back or recommend Metzy’s to anyone.
Food was not great. Weird vibe (country music, too casual).
The rice and bead sides were cold
Great little place. Definitely on my top 5 restaurant list
I came here for a family birthday lunch and...this restaurant has the kindest and most helpful staff I think I've ever met. That alone would've made the experience good but it was also really cute inside, had a great menu with lots of options (including some not very Mexican ones if that's not your thing), GRAB YOUR OWN COFFEE (huge fan), and was a super great value! It was a perfect experience and I will definitely go back!
Food was fantastic, tasty and creative, as well as being great value for money. Service was very courteous, quick and friendly. Ambience was very nice, noise was moderate, but restaurant was not busy while we were there. It’s possible it would be noisier with more people. Would recommend for friends dinner or family dinner. Churros were amazing!!
Food was great! Nachos were excellent! Drinks were good but pricey.
First time here. Food was very good. Service was so so.
First time going, we left very impressed! That margarita though! 😋 we will be back!

It was tough to decide what to order as everything sounded tasty. Ended up with 1 menu and 1 modified special. The kitchen was more than accommodating and our server gave great suggestions and a perfect amount of attention. Cannot wait to visit again.
Hello LesaB, thank you for your kind words and review here on Open Table. I am so happy to hear that you were this happy with our Food & Service.

We will be formally adding a new FUSION section to our menu in Jan, 2020. We look forward to serving you again soon! Respectfully, Erik Metzdorf ("Metzy")
Fantastic. What a surprise to find this gem at the train station in Newburyport. Tacos excellent, corn unbelievable. (We ordered one to go.) Very slow night so quiet and pleasant; suspect a good vibe when the place is filled up. Drinks a little pricey but food super reasonable. We'll definitely return!
Thank you TravelingGram! We really appreciate your feedback and please watch for a new drink menu coming soon! Chef Chris Lee
A friend and I went for dinner on a Saturday night and it was busy, however, very quick service and we loved how fresh the food was. Very good experience.

Food was great, service was not good. Maybe we just caught them on a bad day but it took over an hour for our appetizer nachos to come, no one ever checked on us and when someone did she thought we had already eaten but we still didnt even have our sodas... definitely wouldn't go back, maybe for take out

Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon. Chef Chris
Service was outstanding! Food was so spicy that none of us could finish it after a few bites. I guess their idea of Mexican is to overpower everything with chili powder.
Hello janetd, It is so nice to see/read your positive comments about your experience at Metzy's here on Trip Advisor. We look forward to serving you again soon!
We were really looking forward to trying the restaurant as it was recommended by north shore magazine. We drove from Marblehead and me friends from Byfield. Steve was excellent and attentive. Unfortunately the food was mediocre at best. There were 6 of us and everyone disliked their meals. The guacamole cost $7 for a condiment cup full. We all ordered different items and each of us left feeling as though we should have ordered something else. It was really a disappointing evening. There are so many delicious Mexican restaurants and I was upset to have picked this one. I felt as though I wasted our time and the money for dinner.
Food was delicious and service was outstanding. My first interaction with Metzy's was after the home coming yankee race which they had their food truck there. The food was amazing and customer service was also outstanding so my wife and I can't wait to stop by again!

The portions are small and you do not get chips a d salsa upon arrival- they are $3 a basket. Come comes in small bottles and is $2 a bottle.
This was great Mexican food! The guacamole was very fresh and the chips were warm. I got a steak burrito bowl that was excellent. This is a great date or friends’ get-together place.
Thanks for the kind words and review here on Open Table. We look forward to serving you again soon!
Great place! Excellent food. It's right near the train station.
Thanks for the nice comments and review here on Open Table. We look forward to serving you again soon.
Chips and salsa were good. Spicy salsa which I liked. Sizzling steak meal and fried chicken sandwich were average. Room was not crowded on Saturday night and quiet. No AC so it was a little warm on a summer evening.
Hello JrmM, thanks for taking the time to review Metzy's on Open Table. Glad you were able to book your table ahead, and super happy you used Clipper City Rail Trail to come see us!

We walked from Ring Island, it was a beautiful trail. Got seated right away- the service was fine.
First visit to Metzy’s Cantina, food and service amazing, we will definitely return
We love Metzy’s! Delicious food, great atmosphere, total bang for your buck.
Great Newburyport commuter rail spot for a Mexican bite to eat. Fresh tacos, casual atmosphere. Started as a food truck, now a dine in spot. Nice margaritas and good combos.
I liked the varied menu and the food was good, nachos were especially yummy!
Thank you so much for the review and I appreciate you understanding what I am trying to do with the menu. Look forward to having you back. Chef Chris Lee
