I've had better Mexican food. – We went here because we heard it was good. We went online and saw that they say they will take any competitors coupon so we went and we had a coupon from another restaurant that said buy one dinner and get one free.. well apparently they don't take any of those kind of coupons. They have to be pretty much the same offer they have in their coupons ( buy 2 dinner and 2 drinks and get $6 off).
We still decided to give it a try and its just not good food. First off I noticed that they are almost copying Hacienda Real decor but in a very outdated way. It's boring and the people are not so friendly. They took forever to take our order and to refill our drinks. I was bored out of my mind by the end of my dinner.. I wanted to leave and they wouldnt pass to leave us our check.
Overall the food is nothing special. Atmosphere is pretty lame and boring.. and service was not great.
Will not go back. Next time im going to Hacienda Real.
Husband made sure we ate here when we visited. – My husband really likes this restaurant. I wasn't too impressed. The food portions are MASSIVE! The chips and salsa are great and they have homemade tortillas. His favorite dish is the Pollo Fundido. I got some kind of chicken burrito and it had a red sauce on it and I barely ate any of it, but I did fill up on way too many chips. It wasn't particularly clean or well decorated, but I'm not saying it was dirty either. There was a language barrier between us and our waitress as she spoke Spanish as her first language. Could make some people a little uncomfortable.
Doesn't Stand Out – So whats so different about this place again? Is it the restaurant itself? The prices, food, service, or culinary flair? Other than the title, its about the same as any other place. The parking seems to be decent and the establishment is well kept up.
