Great Place – Awesome food and service. The Guacamole appetizer was the best I''ve ever had and I am from Tucson AZ where we have a huge selection of Mexican foods. The meals are great too.
Not a memorable meal or experience – Yes, the location is great, right on the river. But the salsa was very bland, the food wasn't all the great and the service was just so-so. The parking situation is a nightmare. We won't be rushing back to Who-Song and Larry's anytime soon.
Great place right on the river – Great place to go for a family dinner. yet they also have a bar and tables on the deck for the warm weather dining experience
NEVER, EVER, EVER, EVER AGAIN!!! – I grew up in Vancouver and this was one of my favorite spots....until tonight. I really do like the food and it's been known to have really bad parking.....because of the deck and the food, we put up with the parking. On a perfect summer day, great place to hang out. I do have to make note that it is a Saturday evening, so it was bound to be busy. However, it was my brother in laws 30th b-day. My sister called earlier this week to find out if they took reservations.......yes, was the reponse....so she made "reservations" for 20. She called today at 1 pm to confirm her "reservations" for 7 pm this evening........was told yes, she still has "reservations." My sister is known for being thurough and she is really big on "confirmations." Because we knew it would be busy and parking would awful, we got there a little before 7 PM. My sister advised all 20 friends and family to be prompt at 7. Upon arriving, I saw my sister waiting in the lobby with her 4 year old. I myself had my 3 yr old. Those of you that have or have had a 3 & 4 yr old, should know where that's going.......anyway, we were then told that they don't do "reservations" and that we would need to wait 30 minutes.....and friends and family started piling in.....the lobby is roughly 6 ft x 10 ft.....45 minutes goes by and my sister finally gets up the nerve to ask why.......the Manager begins to be very rude and sassy (rolling her eyes and using hand gestures) and reminds my sister that she is doing the best she can......yes, The Restaurant Manager.....We got there at 7, got seated at 7:45 and did not eat our food until 9:30...you do the math. The "welcome" that we received was the topic for most of the evening and we ALL decided that we would NEVER EAT THERE AGAIN. But then I figure that would be a relief for your understaffed restaurant.
DELICIOUS MEXICAN FARE!! SERVED UP HOT AND FAST, BY AN EFFICIENT FRIENDLY STAFF. – Almost 40 of us reserved for an important event. The booking personnel were exceptionally flexible and helpful. They gave us super suggestions and tips to help make our event one to remember, from how to decorate the room inexpensively, yet with pizzaz, to timing and seating strategy. They even gave us copies of "toasts" we could use. You would have thought it was their own party -- they were so helpful and interested! We ordered family style - platters of frijollies (sp?), nachos, fajittas , and a platter of each appetizer to be served as dinner. We sampled every shade and blend of the marguaritas. The platters were sizzling, the drinks were frozen, Everything was good. The nachos - very good. The appetizers were excellent. And there was twice as much food as we needed. Everyone agreed the food was super!!! BUT, almost all of agreed the guacamole was the best we had ever had. Ever!!! We all agreed, a GREAT TIME.
Who-Song and Larry's – What a great place, the food was awesome, fast service and an awesome deck. I thought the food was priced well and the waitress was extremelly helpful and kind.
Overpriced and Gringo – Perfect if you like your Mexican food overpriced and bland! I ordered the sizzling enchiladas and they were served dry and flavorless. Dry enchiladas!! I imagine this would be a great place to go and get full on drinks and nachos but NOT the place to go if you want a good hearty authentic mexican meal. The margarita menu is larger then the food menu. You'd probably love getting drunk on the patio but just don't go with hopes of eating anything delicious...and bring a credit card because this place isn't cheap!
VERY DISAPPOINTING! – 7/9/07 took 8 for birthday celebration of our 9 yr old grandson & 36 yr old son. They told us they had a children's menu but never offered them a menu.... just told us they had french fries and cheese quasadillas. We asked for more chips/salsa with our second round of drinks but never got them. Had a mediocre dinner.... little kids never got refills on their sodas. Chili rellenos weren't even cooked in the center... hard chilis and raw cheese inside. And the birthday song we were promised? no sombreros.... the waiter said they don't make sombreros anymore. so he brought out 2 coffee filters for their heads and said the band would be right out to sing to them. no complimentary desserts for birthday boys.... we ordered desserts for the group while we waited for the singers.... finally after 1/2 hour of waiting and having no one come around to fill water, or ask us how we were doing.... my husband went in and asked for the bill ($203.00) which we paid and left. How disappointing since we thought our 2 grandkids and the rest of the family would enjoy the singing and antics ..... guess they've given this all up at Who Song and Larry's. I didn't want to make a scene and our waiter knew I was very disappointed and promised us a better time next time. I tried calling the manager but she'd already left. I was also given the wrong e-mail address to express my disappointment. Folks - I'd suggest you buy a $10.00 sombrero and go to your local Taco Bell! Save yourself lots of $$$$ and a lot of disappointment.
This a good place to take the kids and sit out on the patio and watch the boats on the river and have desant mexican food. Place is kind of loud but is a great place for large groups and birthday parties. For a birthday they have a band that will sing you anything from "little red riding hood" to the gwacamoli song". Not quite the place for a quit night out.
Laugh Your Butt Off – My girlfriend and I love going to this place. Every time we go we see some off the funniest people there including their great guitarist Steve and crazy waiter Matt. The hostess area is no good with it's small room but the drinks are always good along with their seasonal chef specials. Make sure to go and sit on the deck in the sun with a Margarita and food or totaly bring in friends for their birthdays... it will be one they won't forget for a while... last time I was there I saw that waiter Matt chase a lady around and feed her guacamole that he made at the table. The whole restaurant was laughing and I will never forget it! Fun times!
