Ok food!

The food is good. The employees are not. One waiter was to busy checking out, talking and sitting at another table. We were there for twenty minutes when I finally walked to the register to ask can I order a water for me and a pop for my friend. The guy at the register told me my waiter will take... read more

My first time trying them out. Went as part of a buisness lunch group. We all enjoyed our dishes and the salsa was very good. The chicken fajita was excellent and the building was clean with clean restrooms. Will be returning.

I really enjoy this restaurant! The food is great, the service is on time, and we enjoy the atmosphere. My friend likes to practice his Spanish and the staff is good about spending a few minutes with him.

One of the better places for lunch if you want to avoid the fast food places. Service is fast, and good, and the chicken fahita I had was tasty.

They have many specials. My family loves the pizza and wings special for $10 on Saturdays. Happy hour has 1/2 off apps twice a day Mon - Fri.

We used to eat here weekly, but found that often the food was not hot. Especially the rice and beans would be stone cold. Stopped by today for lunch with the guys to see if it had improved. We were promptly seated and our orders taken as soon as we were ready. They do have a good salsa served with... More

Sometimes the service is slow. Once I waited for 15 minutes on my lunch break for service and only got drinks and chips, got up and left and went to Taco Johns and it was just as good. Do have to say I love the La Gavioda (i don't know if I spelled that right). Only once have I had... More

The food is good here. But, the employees are terrible. We were seated for twenty minutes before we got a drink order. He came over and said "drink." Then kept looked at his watch three times before everyone ordered them. Rude! We got them and were eating our chips and salsa for another twenty minutes before he came to take... More
