I got there with my wife on Friday, looking for new places to eat. We both decided to never come back. Service is poor and slow. Prices are too high for so bad food. My burrito al pastor had a sweetie taste, really bad. Simply I don't recommend this place!

I don't know why people are complaining so much about this place! I've been a loyal customer since summer 2013 and HAVE NEVER experienced anything bad about this place. The Pelangocha is just so gooood! And the tacos...WOW, This is a little family business, people need to understand that when it's crowded, you probably have to wait for the food...... More

We waited 45 min for a guacamole and two soups and then we found a piece of plastic in one of the soups. On top of that, food was excessively greasy and overall bad... and this is just part of it. Never again.

I'm sorry to say that we are not coming back to this place because of the very bad service. To start we ordered a Margarita and two glasses of water. We waited a long time for the water and the Margarita never came. Our appetizers also took a long time to arrive. The waiter didn't seem to care much. Needless... More

I went to this restaurant thanks to the Entertainment Book offer they have. I like going to new places and I love Mexican food. This is a small, family owned restaurant and the service was great. We were welcomed since we got in and seated immediately. I'm a client that CANNOT for ANY REASON eat spicy food due to health... More

In spite of the bad reviews about this place, my husband and I adventured to this place. My experience was exactly the opposite. The food was excellent. They moved their original place to a larger one right in front of the other, incorporating two menus, one of the original Mexican restaurant and the other of hamburgers and wings. Apparently they...

We landed in this place while venturing through Winston Churchill Ave. on a Friday night and saw a lot of movement at this place. Though service was a little bit disorganized and slow, the bartender was really cool and margaritas were great!!!! The problem here was the food, this is just an expensive Taco Bell!!! Ingredients are not good quality,... More
