My boyfriend and I went in there a couple weeks ago during lunch time the place was dirty and not somewhere I would normally want to eat at. we got sat and the server didn't say anything to us about ten mins later she came over and asked if we were ready. I handed her the groupon and she said... More

My husband and I grew up in Southern CA and moved here a few years ago. One thing we have missed is true Mexican food. Although the fake cheese sauce on most chain Mexican restaurant food here is delicious, it's just not traditional and we haven't found a place with even halfway decent ranchero sauce... until now! The place isn't... More

Not sure what the hype is about. The first time we went there, the service was slow and there were only 2 other tables at the time. I never got a refill on my pop, the salsa bar was underwhelming and they didn't refill the chips the whole time we were there - it was mostly crumbs. The food was... More

We went in at 11:30 AM with 2 pre-paid lunch coupons purchased on the internet. The service was slow, even though we were the only ones in the restaurant. The food and portion size was excellent. My complaint was when the waitress came back with the MN sales tax amount we owed on our 2 lunches. We were charged a... More

Every once and awhile, you find one of those hole-in-the-wall spots that you don’t want to tell anyone else about — even though you know you should. Last week, we found one such place, Las Teresita Mexican Grill. You can read the full review -- with photos and such! -- on the Minneapolites blog (http://minneapolites.com/2013/04/las-teresitas/) Here's the quick rundown for... More

Las Teresitas is in a small strip mall just off the freeway. My husband stopped in a while ago, following the sign for $5 burritos. He brought home a bagful, and we've been regulars ever since. First stop is the salsa bar located in the center of the dining area. We all have our favorites. I have a sensitive mouth... More

Come for the food, not the atmosphere. Though, if you like quick service and a cheerful staff, it couldn't be better. You will start with the salsa bar featuring a half dozen or so fresh blends, and 5 minutes later, your sizzling fajitas or carnitas will be served. I ordered the signature Teresa fajita that included chorizo, beef, pollo, beans,... More

We had a coupon and had read the rave reviews. But it was one of the worst places we have dined and I really like hole in the walls and dives. I just couldn't like this one. Our waitress was surly from the beginning and never offered refills or asked how the food was. We ordered the carne asada platter... More

Have dined here many times, most recently yesterday with spouse. Ordered 3 tacos (pollo, carne, and barbacoa) and the Saturday tamale special (2 port tamales w/salad, rice and beans). Enjoyed some good chips and excellent salsas from the salsa bar (minimum 3 tacos purchase) while we waited. Tacos are $1.65 each except Tuesdays when they're the special of the day... More

This little hole-in-the-wall eatery offered up the best Mexican cuisine I've had in over 10 years and some of the best I've ever had the good pleasure to put in my mouth. The salsa bar was an excellent lead-in to the main course. Many of the salsas offered were not entirely to my liking, but two really stood out --... More
