Really sad to see the changes here. – This restaurant used to be one of my favorites, with good food and friendly service. Recently though the service has become more and more surly. The Host/Manager must be having a really bad time, because they are beginning to nickle and dime their customers about refills that were (and are customarily, at other restaurants) free. The Host/Manager waited on our group and was un-friendly and rude, and never mentioned the "extra" charges. When it came time to pay up he took great offense when asked about the additional charges, though we did not dispute them. We left feeling that we had lost a great restaurant, and won't be going back, mainly because it seems that they are more about chiseling money than the dining experience.
Rude Service – First time there. Walked in for lunch to place an order to go.
Did not see 'A La Carte' on the menu and asked if I could order a couple Carne Asada yacos to go. I noticed they had Carne Asada burritos so surely they can make the tacos too.
Host/Mgr/Owner said, no. We do not make Carne Asada tacos and he wasn't nice about it. Seemed he was upset my order wasn't bigger. More money. I put the menu down and started to walk out and he said, i can make you carnitas or chicken taco.
Too late by then. I was totally offended. In this economy you DO NOT turn down a customer. I told everyone at work about the experience. I won't go back.
Tastiest Mexi food ever!! – We've been going here for years and its my kids favorite! Love the salsas & sauces, they are the best, full of flavor. Gotta try the "special" margaritas, no mickey mouse!! lol
The Real Thing! – In a nutshell--YUM!!! This is the best truely authentic Mexican food around. The food is awesome, the place is always clean, and the family makes you feel at home. It's a cozy atmosphere and usually busy, but no wait. Come hungry!!!
