We go here quite a bit but sometimes service is awfully slow - particularly weekend days. Sad, as it hurts the experience and the inconsistency makes me hot and cold with the restaurant.

We love Delgado's. It's a family-friendly place that we frequent a couple times a month. It's a local favorite. The food is what you might find at any typical Mexican food place. We like to sit at a booth that is right beside open doors to the patio. Their guacamole is so fresh, really delicious. Margaritas are fantastic. I love... More

Nothing horrible but nothing great to report, either. Chile Verde and the $14 margarita were pretty good. Shredded chicken in both the flauta and the tacos was really bland tough to eat. Guacamole appetizer tasted like a couple over-ripe avocados were thrown in a bowl and mashed up. We had to try to kick some flavor into it by using... More

Friends of ours picked this restaurant to eat at and I looked at the reviews saying the service was not great, but the food was good to average. I have to say that the service was terrible. We had to track down a server to get a drink menu. When the server and busy boy arrived, the server was irritated... More

We were from out of town and truly felt it. The waitress never returned after serving our food while the locals were waited on hand and foot. No refills had to ask for chips and salsa and pretty much hunt her down for the check. Very disappointed.

Fresh, Healthy, Unique. This isn't your standard Mexican food, it's a healthier more creative take on our favorites. Fun atmosphere, family friendly, great service

Not fancy just comfortable with great food. Had chili relleno dish with rice and beans. All great!! My husband had norteno enchiladas plate OMG good. If you like taco bell you won't like this place as they serve real Mexican food.

After reading the positive reviews, gave it a try, Firstly the menus were dirty, not a good start, the food was just your very very average Mexican, it was just edible is all we can say. So if you are looking for big quantity maybe it is for you, but quality Mexican food in our opinion it is not.

A decent Mexican Restaurant with typical fare that was hot and very tasty. COLD Mexican Beer on Tap. Nice service. Nice to find a place late on a Sunday evening that was still open and willing to serve a good meal.
