The appetizers were okay but never have heard of chicken wings or fried calamari at a Mexican restaurant. The seafood ceviche was decent but no kick in it. I ordered the red snapper, it was cooked nicely with a fresh jicama slaw. My husband had the carne Asada; it was cooked fine (he ordered it medium rare) but it was... More

My girlfriends and I came here for Sunday brunch for a Christmas gathering. The food was exceptional. So much variety and it actually tasted authentic. We ate and drank like there was no tomorrow. Our waiters came often to check up on us and made sure our glasses were always full of mimosas. The mariachi was the cherry on top.... More

I have been to Luminarias several times. It is more like 3.5 stars. The food is good and the price is right too. This is a Mexican restaurant but the brunch carries a variety including an omelette bar, bacon, sausage, potatoes, pasta bar, seafood bar, sliced roast, and, of course, Mexican food. The homemade tortillas are the bomb. The service... More

A perfect place to go on a weekend evening - live music to go with great Mexican ambiance! Must get a reservation - usually crowded! Service is friendly and the food is authentic!

Last visited 3 yrs ago. There are always crowds on Sundays -- for Brunch. This was no exception. Varied food stations to choose from -- even some lite Sushi. More emphasis on Mexican food ... Would like more foods like lasagna, fried chicken (not just chicken nuggets on the Kids' Buffet) -- even hot dogs or burgers -- or meat... More

I went there for a business meeting with some collegues, we had a banquet room. The atmosphere at the restaurant is awesome. The service was great, the food was great. I have also eaten there on other occasions with family. I have never been disapointed there buffets are out of this world. The home made tortillas are awesome. Just a... More

My son came down from Nebraska with his fiance...who on the spur of the moment went down to get a marriage license, spoke to our family pastor and planned on taking the nuptials that same evening! Well, as a proud mother and father we started to look into places we could have a small wedding, for just the family which... More
