Its ok .. Had better – OK first people please stop comparing it to Chacho's because Chacho's is not saying they are real Mexican food... Chacho's is actually tex-Mex...so if you want to compare this to anything it should be to another authentic Mexican restaurant.... with that said the following is my review
Venue Layout - As soon as you walk in you are hit with a funny smell.... I don't know if its because they have a trash can is next to the door... or if its because they have made it so big that you can not smell the food that is cooked... the cashier area is to your right and not really appealing... the refrigerated only has cheesecake that has been wrapped up in plastic..
I understand they wanted to make it big but everything is a little to spread out.
OK now lets get to the good stuff
I came to this place 2 times since the first time I was really critical about the layout so I wanted to make sure that the food had a fair shot.
My boyfriend and I ordered two #2 combos which consist of 2 tacos with beans and rice and a drink of course. Our total was around $15 which for what you get is pretty good for 2 people...
by the drink area they have a basket of bags full of chips... I think its a great idea except that the chips get cold and stale since they are not changed.. but still a good idea
The condiments bar... I have to say the sauces are very yummy even though things weren't where they were marked they would be ... the flavor of them were excellent!
for dessert my boyfriend had the cheesecake and even though they didn't look appetizing my boyfriend said it was good.
my friend and I just wanted something simple so we just had 2 tacos each and a drink ..... our total......$20....................... yea for 4 tacos we paid $20 ... tacos are $3.44 each ... although they were good not worth the price... for that we shouldve gone to the little corner trucks and gotten more for our money..
over all its an OK place to go eat at if you want the full thing then you will pay about $7 - $8 including drink ...
but if you want something small i suggest go somewhere else for your money because its not worth paying $10 for just 2 tacos and a drink ... doesn't make sense why they would make it more expensive.
so will i go here again... umm probably not ... well only if my boyfriend makes me but trust it won't be my first choice.
True Mexican – Reminds me about those great tacos from back home,
Top sirloin tacos, white cheese... delicious!!!
