Confusion, table for 1!

The atmosphere here is a little half hazardous and confusing! You walk in and it's hard to figure out what to do. Do you seat yourself or wait? Do you go up to the counter to order or do they come to you. Do you get your own drink refills or do they do it. Most places these questions are... read more

Bought lunch for our Grand Rapids staff. Had heard this was excellent Mexican food. People waiting out the door told me "jackpot." Shrimp tacos had some bang to them. The chips and guacamole were in the conversation for best ever category. If I lived here, this would be once a week, easy.

We are on a quest to find the best Mexican food around the area. After reading a lot of reviews, we thought this may be it. It was not. The food was ok, but not great.

Authentic Mexican Restaurant, Affordable, Great Food. The Alambre is AMAZING!, plus if you like shrimp, they have a version with shrimp. The Restaurant is nothing fancy, but clean. if you are looking for great authentic Mexican food, you gotta try it.
