No complaints here! – This is a review of 4 G's SOUTH in Littleton. While I cannot speak for the other locations, I have been coming to this restaurant for years and think it is an all around great restaurant. Good food, reasonable prices, great service (we always sit with Robert!) very clean, and good atmosphere. My personal favorites are the margaritas, chili con queso, fajitas, tacos al carbon, and chili rellenos! The homemade flan is also amazing if you have room for desert! I am a big fan of mexican food and have tried many places around town... I have to say, when considering the price and quality of the food, this one is near the top of my list!
what happened here? – Its weird, we drove by and I said "wow there is 4 g's, that place was great when I was there a couple years ago." Unfortunately, not everything gets better with age. Now, I know we all have had bad experiences at some points, when we visit restaurants. Rarely does everything go bad at the same visit, but it did. Right from walking in the building, we couldn't get seated, to the chips, to the service, to the length of time to get the food, to the time to get the check. Usually what this says to me is that there is no sheperd tending the flock.
Too many good mexican places to go here – I live right by this place and was hoping for a hole in the wall neighborhood restaurant to frequent. I have been several times and the food is consistently bad. I will drive the drive for better mexican (I am a mexican food junkie!)
The Mariachi Band Makes It – Tried the new Aurora 4 G's on South Havana Street. Service was slow and unforgettable. Had to remind the waiter that we would like chips and salsa, which was never offered. Asked if there was a kids menu, none offered. Asked for a couple of margarita's, to which our waiter responded, "What time is it?" I knew where he was going with this and I assured him it was before seven and yes it is still happy hour. Asked again for chips and salsa, along with some water. 5 minutes later the chips (non-descript) and salsa (good flavor with a little kick) came. Asked then for water (again). Margarita's came, remind me to get beer next time and we ordered. Plates came later with the waiter putting my wife's combo meal in front of my child and his plate in front of my wife. He then argued that we ordered a burrito plain, no sauce and a combo plate. Well, he was right, that's what we ordered but the combo was devoid of sauce or anything else, while my son's burrito was covered in sauce and veggies. Finally get him to take the plates away. Meanwhile, while he is gone, somebody else comes over and gives my son some crayons and yes, a child's menu. Food comes again and it was eatable, nothing special. Our waiter did keep coming back and asking if we wanted anything else like dessert, thought after two times he would get it but he did on the third "no". This was pretty much the norm for our section of the restaurant. As the headline implies, there was a mariachi band, which was very enjoyable. When we were leaving, noticed they even forgot to turn on their outdoor lights and the place looked desolate at 8 pm. As for the 4 G's on Havana, maybe some growing pains but with two other Mexican places within walking distance of their parking lot, I'd say, try the other two first. As to the reviewer from years ago that said the most authentic food was from 4 G's, I wish I would have relatives writing those kinds of nice words about me too!
The Real Deal – If your idea of good mexican food is Chili's or Colorado Hacienda, then 4G's is NOT for you.
If you are looking for the most authentic Mexican food in the state, this is it. My wife and I grew up less than 1 hour from the Mexican border and have spent countless days and weeks in Mexico. We know the real deal when we see it and this is it.
The Breakfast Burrito with scrambled eggs, chorizo and cheese smothered in Green Chile will cut through any hanger. The shredded beef tacos make you think you are back down there.
Very children friendly and the value cannot be beat anywhere. I believe our last breakfast for 4 people was under $15 including tax and tip.
Es El Mas Mejor en el estado!
