When can I order then? – I patronized this establishment a few times and was excited to purchase some of their party trays for a Friday night party a couple weeks ago. I needed enough for 25-30 people. A good sized order that any restaurant would be excited to receive. Not here! I called on a Tuesday for a Friday evening pickup. On the phone is was rudely told this was their "busy time." So i asked, "does this mean I can't order any party platters?" The gal responds, "It's our busy time, sorry" and click. hung up on!
Maybe they should stipulate on their catering menu exactly when and when you can't order! A little politeness could have gone a long way. Avila's El Ranchito in Lake Forest or any other town has lost my business.
I'd have to agree...avoid at all costs – This place was loud and cold. I went on a Friday night when the weather was not very warm and I had to either keep my jacket on the whole night or keep drinking. The Margaritas were very weak and the food tasted and looked like it had been thrown together.
Avoid at all times – I ordered a breakfast burrito to go. I t was way overpriced $7.00 plus tax and seasoning was bland. Very few patrons inside. The burger joint next door had a line out the door. Dont recommend
Great Family atmosphere, friendly, at home atmosphere – While the ambiance shows the owner's love for the ocean and surfing, the employees create a friendly warm atmosphere. Good place for a small get together with easy mexican dishes. Warm, eclectic and most of all friendly.
More Coupons – This place is pretty good, but its priced a little high for mexican food. I like to wait for the coupons to come before I go here. Don't get me wrong, the food is pretty good, but I'm just saying its a little over-priced.
Very good mexican food, love there salsa – Very good mexican food. Don't make the mistake of going to there other locations, it's not nearly the same. Friday nights are a little busy you might have to wait a few minutes.
