Eat here about once a week, sometimes more. The food is great, servers are friendly :) and prices are good too....can't beat that! Shredded beef chimi is yummo!
Hidden gem in altoona! – I love this restaurant. The staff is very friendly and fast.
its in the strip mall across from walmart on 8th street
My favorite are the fajitas (served huge with a side plate of rice, beans and veggies) or the Guadalajara special (a mix of chicken and shrimp with onions and green bell peppers ontop of rice topped with cheese sauce) a crazy combination of great taste. The Pollo loco is fabulous too (chicken brest split in half and made really thin and tender topped with sauteed onions and cheese sauce served rice beans veggies and tortillas) i believe the dinner size comes with two pieces of chicken instead of one.
My husband always gets the #7 which is a chile relleno and enchilada with rice and beans and/or chicken soup
the two of us can eat there with something to drink, tips, and a coffee afterwords for about $20-25. very good seeing as the next closest mexican restaurant costs 30 to 35 for the same amounth of food!
definately worth your time and you can never get bored with their menu and the friendly atmosphere
Don't order the chicken – Seriously....
Asked for Pollo Loco with no onions. Comes back chock full of onions. Send it back. Comes back, notice the "chicken breast" was about a thin a McDonald's burger patty. Not the only time I've asked for something omitted from an order only to have it on there when it arrives.
