Mexican Food at the Lake

I ate at this restaurant about 10 years ago. I found the food to be good, but very bland. The service was excellent and the cost of the food was very good. I had a side order refried beans, very small amount for $1.75. Nothing has changed and is a good thing for the restaurant and their... read more

Good Mexican food. We tried a different Mexican restaurant everyday. This wasn't bad but I liked another one better. But I would eat here again. Very clean inside.

Always enjoy Mexican or Tex Mex foods. This place was fun and the food was great! We have been back a few times.

Nice atmosphere reasonably priced good food. Love seafood and Mexican food and their crab enchilada used real crab and had a wonderful cheese sauce. Did not care for the rice but overall all of our dinners were exceptional.

One of the locals told us this was a good Mexican Restaurant but we thought it was very bland. Even my teenage son who will eat about anything did not like it.

Have had better food from Taco Bell. Mexican rice tasted like it came out of a can along with salsa. Very Americanized!

Our visit to Vista Grande for lunch was nice. Not many people at that time... the waiter was very good. I had the chicken chimi and it was good except it was a little spicy for my taste. The chips are really good--thin, crisp, hot. Not that excited about the salsa though.

Stopped here for lunch on a recent Lake trip, and wasn't disappointed. My friends got the chimichangas, which got rave reviews, though I opted for the Taco Salad bowl, which was massive and tasty. I ate about half and took the rest home, made another meal for me later! We also all got margaritas, of which I wasn't a big... More

Food taste was not good. Taco salad was very wet. Like they used very wet ingredients . Very disappointed. salsa was warm and had little flavor. Service was ok.
