Average food, good service.

We went with a group of 9 women; not sure why we picked this one over Abuelo's, since that is right by the movie theater. But fine.. The food was fine. Nothing awful, nothing outstanding. Usual rice, beans, covered with gloppy stuff. We did have a super-helpful and friendly waitress who kept us... read more

Always greeted by friendly staff and it looks like they changed their HH menu, however, I prefer to order food from the regular menu as portion are large. Watch out for the hot plates! I am told that everytime and I guess I can't believe how hot they really are, you can get burned. I had the green chili chicken... More

This place is horrible. From the service to the food. The flavor is gone and smothered with their sauce. The service is terrible. We have experienced the lack of service too many times lately that we had to check this place off as a "go to" place for lunch. Forget it...

Don't bother with this one in Arrowhead Mall Area, Glendale. Boiled chicken....ugh....no salt, no seasonings, no sauce on the chicken tostada. Terrible....will never go back.

In the past i have always liked this location of Ajo Al's. i still like the design with the high ceilings and architecture and poster art on the walls. The service was acceptable as well though maybe not memorable but sometimes that's good, better than bad service which certainly sticks out. The food was just so so though with decent... More

Food is consistently good and service is as well. They make an awesome sour cream sauce on their chimis.

I ordered but didn't feel like being in public after having a long day. I was pleasantly surprised they have take out. As always the food was amazing. I personally love the nep. Pizza. Between our group we shared a cheese crisp, and then had the pizza, and chicken quesadilla, beef enchilada.

Service is slow and the food is not what it used to be. The original Ajo Al's was and is still better than the 75th Ave location.

We only went to Ajo Al's one time, not that we didn't like the food, atmosphere, service, but because there are so many Mexican food restaurants in the area that we prefer.
