Lousy service, decent food – The food here is very good and you do get a good deal for your money. I stopped going here, though, because the service is insanely bad. Almost everytime I went here I got rude waitresses who seemed more concerned with chatting with the other waitresses than doing their job. I would order a bowl of tortilla soup (which is pretty lousy) and I wouldnt even get it, my glass of tea would be empty most of the time, I would get the wrong order and ask for it to be taken back and the waitress would seem really irritated that she had to take it back.
The last time I went there, it was me and my boyfriend together and the only other table had two guys at it. There were four waitresses there and only two tables. You would think they would be able to get their butts in gear and get things right. No, it was horrible! We started by ordering chili con queso which was never brought to us. I didnt say anything when our food came out to us, because I figured they might be brining our appetizer after the main course (which they have done before... irritates me so much!). Well, we never got it and by the time we got our food, we didnt really want it anymore, so we just let it slide. Anyways, when we got the bill, we were charged for it. So we asked her and she just laughed and said "Oops!" I was thinking "You have got to be kidding me!" Four of those fools sitting in the front running their mouths and not a single one has the sense to do their job!!! Needless to say, I will never go back here.
If you want some good Mexican food and excellent service, head to Taqueria Vallarta on Riverside! Everything there is awesome.
