Total waste of money! – So I tried this place once or twice before, and the food wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. Today I was craving mexican food so I decided to give them another chance. I would've been better off finding a Taco Bell! They don't speak English there so my order was wrong, but it was just chicken instead of pork so I figured no big deal. I don't know if this is a common thing around here, but all of the fat is left on the meat, which I find quite displeasing. Even the big chunks of fat that cannot be chewed. The sauce and flavoring of the meat was good, but the tortillas were not cooked or heated all the way and were somewhat crunchy (supposed to be a SOFT taco). I also ordered a side of rice and beans. Now refried beans are pretty hard to mess up but they found a way to to do it. They had the consistency of a soup. Also, if you like cheese with your mexican food don't go here. They sprinkled some grated cheese on the beans that was the texture of parmesan and clumps up. I asked for cheese on my tacos and they gave me a side of the same stuff. I LOVE mexican food and I eat a lot of it in all different places, and this is NOT a place I will EVER go back to!
We didn't like it – This place is really bad. The guacamole was tasteless, rice and beans were pretty cold, and the meat was not tastefull like one could expect from a Mexican restaurant. The waitress who served us didn't speak any English, not even the basic greetings such as "good afternoon", "how are you?", or "did you like the food?".
This place is great! – The previous poster was correct, this place looks like a dive, but is quite the Mexican restaraunt. It has the most authentic Mexican found I have found in the Metro area and the margaritas are outstanding. They make every single one from scratch so you don't get the overbearing sweetness like you do with the machine ritas, just a good flavorful drink. And the prices cannot be beat. This is a wonderful place for any night of the week and their jukebox is always jumpin.
Comida esta Fantastico! – This place is excellent. The food is authentic Mexican and Delicious. The service is OK , as they do not speak much English. I love the atmosphere and the great juke box which plays catching Spanish songs.
Don't be fooled!! – Don't be fooled by its appearance. It looks like a dive but serves up fresh authentic Mexican fare you won't normally find in your average Tex-Mex style restaraunt. Meaning, not that you won't find burritos and nachos, but that you won't find cheddar/ Jack style cheeses. They use mexican "white cheese" instead. Try the cactus...(somehow it's fresh), or order a special. The mole sauce passes the test.
