FOOD POISONING AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!! I use to eat there all the time until that fateful day. I ordered a chicken and bacon dish that was completely RAW!!! The cutlets were burnt on the bottom (usual) at first I thought it was fat and didn't really pay attention, until the evidence was irrefutable that the chicken and bacon were raw. I told the sever who is normally very good, he told the manager and took a whopping 50% ($7.47) off the one raw food dish only and asked if I wanted it cooked a little more or maybe he could get the manager to approve a new entre!!! The manager did not come to the table (not a whole lot they could have done but the appearance of concern would have been nice), the "cook" was not informed. This is not the first time I've received less than fully cooked meals from this establishment. After two fun filled days of full on food poisoning, I plead that you learn from my predicament and eat somewhere else or at least bring a thermometer and check the temp!
STEAK – Believe it or not, this is a great place to have a rib eye steak. It was done to perfection and at a reasonable price. I also enjoy the Mexican dishes prepared with shrimp. Cheese enchiladas are also excellent. Drinks are great and reasonably priced. A real friendly, family atmosphere where you can dine with great food and feel at home.
Awesome!!!! – The service is good. If you like Chips & Salsa then you will like this place.
I would recommend the 3 ground beef tacos if you have teenage kids and for Adults the Chulapas is a good deal the beans are amazing and the rice is good . For my 13 year old son and I it only cost 18$ for what we had.
I'll tell you I was skeptical about it at first because all I've heard was "we're going to El Toro".
Bottom line me and my son rate this restaurant 4/5 it was decent and not to pricey.
