bland

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.

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.

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

I heard some good things about this place before going. I was terribly disappointed when I left. We visited on a Wednesday afternoon for lunch. The place was maybe 1/2 full. By no means at all were they busy or being "slammed". To start out with, the service in general was among some of the worst in recent memory. It... More

The food was very good and the service was excellent. We did have to wait twenty- minutes before we could be seated but the time seemed to go fast. They were able to serve a party of 8.

We enjoyed the white queso as an appetizer. Once we added in their fresh pico.. It was over the top! The margarita I enjoyed was fantastic. We met the owner when in. She was lovely.
