Service was average. Food:Complimentary nachos with tomato sauce was no different than sitting in front of your TV watching a football game with your own tomato sauce taken directly from the jar. No special concoction was attempted to disguise the tomato sauce. Also, ordered shrimp fajita that was flavorless. The decor of the place hasn't changed but the ambience was... More

Very good Mexican food for the area. Enchiladas are exceptional - always plenty of chips with zippy salsa. Service is a hit or miss. I have been here and received exceptional service and I have been here when I considered filing a missing persons report for the waitress. Overall, food is consistently good and it is worth a visit. Prices... More

Went to the Cafe-we were excited to be there as we heard there were some changes in management or owners. Went with my brother and my cousin. Well after waiting for about 20 minutes at the bar area table for service we heard another family say -We haven't had anyone even check on us! That made us all say UH... More

I'll make it short. The food was poor at best. The salsa with the chips was essentially chopped tomatoes with no flavor. The rack of ribs was overcooked with a completely tasteless sauce. The quesadillas used some type of artificial cheese that also was tasteless. Ninety percent flour tortilla and 10% cheese. They couldn't even make good pico de gallo.... More

Service very slow. We ordered chicken wraps. They were OK, onion rings poor. The decor is nice. I prefer a SMALL menu but they need to improve service and overall quality.

Ate at Rattlesnake with a Groupon. Second visit, both times just okay. Salsa chips were salt less and salsa had no kick. Shrimp and chorizo - skip it. Cheeseburger was an actual burger (not patty) and tasty. Wings were okay.

This restaurant is a great little gem! We love sitting outside enjoying chips, guacamole and a margarita. Their food is good, portions are huge and reasonably priced. All the waitresses are very friendly! We usually come a few times a month for tacos!

My visit with my son and family took us to the Rattlesnake Cafe. Being out of state, I would rate this cafe as average. The food was similar to other east coast Mexican restaurants, average. The service was outstanding, wish I could have said the same for the food.
