    Perhaps it's merely a matter of taste, but to me there is better Mexican fare in Springfield than Mexican Villa.  The cheese mentioned in the previous note can at times be heaped so thick on dishes that it can overpower the serving.
     
    To long-time locals, the "Villa" is the choice, but to my taste buds Maria's downtown, or even some of the smaller houses such as Amigo's are preferred.  For what it's worth, the Purple Burrito has a fantastic SoCal-style fish taco at $1.95.
     
    Nothing to do with the food, but local rumor has it that the original Mexican Villa (Bennett @ National) was opened by a "merchant of the flesh" so that the working girls would have a place of employment once they got a tad too old for the oldest profession.  I don't know if its true, but at a minimum it's a good urban legend.

      I've never heard of "sweet" sauce at a Mexican place. What is it?

        I have fond memories of Mexican Villa...it was the first restaurant I went to in Springfield when i went to SMSU. My Mom & Dad dropped me off at the dorm and then after unpacking we headed to find a Mexican Restaurant. Good food and more importantly reasonable in price for a college student. It was the first time I had a Sancho (burrito with lettuce) and not the last.
