Average Mexican Food

The food is OK if you like bland Mexican Food. There was very little if any spice or heat to anything. The salsa & chips were OK, but the salsa I am sure was canned or bottled.

Been going to this restaurant for years! Their food is very good, and not over priced. Margaritas are awesome. Chips and Salsa great too! Atmosphere is great, love to sit and have our dinner in the bar area with the TV's. We go here almost everytime we are down.

Vista Grande was a short distance from my hotel so decided to give it a try. Chips and salsa are typical. Had a margarita and it was good. Main course were the pork tacos, a local favorite. They were very good.

Our waiter was awesome. He was asked his choice of favorite and he was totally right! My friend had some questions about the area and he was happy to answer.

My dad and I wanted to chill out for a bit after a long day of shopping in Osage Beach (the outlet mall is right across the street). Dad loves Margaritas so we went to Vista Grande and sat at the bar. The complimentary chips and salsa were very tasty and the drinks were very good and reasonably priced. Service... More

We visited Vista Grande after talking to a local who recommended it. Normally, after reading the trip advisor reviews, I wouldn't have went, but we were in the mood for Mexican food, so we decided to try it. Let me start with the pros: We had a good waitress who served us our food in a timely manner. Prices were... More

I've been going to this restaurant since the 80's and it never disappoints. Food, staff and atmosphere is great.

The Crab and Shrimp Brettos with their special yellow and white sauce are our favorite meal. The food is served on a very hot plate with Mexican brown rice and a small lettuce salad mix. The food is a wonderful delight, not too spicy but just right. The meal is really plentiful and most likely you will have leftovers. The... More

Went there on a Monday afternoon - was craving some good Mexican food. I'm from the KC area so I guess I'm spoiled with excellent Mexican cuisine. The atmosphere and wait staff are great. Very warm and friendly. The chips are great too, however, something is seriously wrong with the salsa. If you like fresh, robust and spicy DO NOT... More
