Just average

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.

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.

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.

The only thing I can say is bring back the old owner and the old menu. Very disappointed. Most of the food served was not freshly prepared it was all food service. As I said very disappointed.

We have eaten a number of times at the Rattlesnake Cantina in the past. Tonight's dinner was a major disappointment. The first basket of chips that came out were stale. The second basket the chip were so over fried they tasted terrible. I ordered sizzling chicken fajitas. When my dinner came out, the chicken was literally ice cold. The waitress... More

The food was aahhh OK. I had Habanero Chicken which was extremely spicy and the waitress WARNED me. I had no problems there. The chicken was cooked well and the rice was a little on the bland side. I also think the the corn should have been toasted to authentic the more spanish feel flare. Also had enchiladas that were... More

Our experience was very disappointing. The food at best was mediocre, 15 tiny shrimp to fill 3 taco shells. When I asked the waitress whether I could get a few more shrimp, the answer in a very monotone voice was that it would be impossible since it's prepackaged. I accepted that, after all this is not a gourmet restaurant. Also,... More
