Not much to dislike about this restaurant. My wife and I arrived for lunch around 12:30 on a Saturday. We were seated immediately. Our orders were taken extremely quickly and our meals were delivered extremely fast as well. Food was hot and flavorful. You will not leave hungry! El Yucateco hot sauces on the table were a fantastic touch as... More

Alert! This place is cutting corners in an unacceptable fashion. PROs: Good looking authentic menu and selection. CONs: Ownership is pushing MAJOR shortcuts in food production. Most the food was straight from a can (or worse, a quesadilla made with processed/individually wrapped white american cheese slices! unacceptable by all standards!), precooked and microwaved. SERVICE: Fast with the order, very slow... More

I'll admit that we're not a big fan of Mexican, but heard such good thing about this place that we tried it for something different. We were there on a Tuesday, two couples waiting but we'd never know that cause there is no sign in or receptionist, so you just kinda stand there and keep track of who came in... More

This is probably the only Mexican restaurant I've been too where I've enjoyed every meal I've had. The meals are always hot and don't cost a fortune. Would highly recommend this restaurant!

The food was very good and authentic. The complimentary salsa and tortia chips were excellent. The Gucamole was made in advance and subpar as a result. I don't understand why a good Mexican restaurant uses a mix rather than fresh lime juice when making a Margarita. If it weren't for this flaw i might have given them an excellent.

I went here for lunch yesterday and it was great. I first went here when they opened a couple of years ago and we did not like it at all. It was a pleasant surprise to see that every thing was much better. I had a burrito and it was loaded with chicken and very tasty. The chips and salsa... More

This place is expensive! The food is bland and uninspiring, tastes like it came out of a can and microwaved.

After our favorite Mexican restaurant closed we were searching for a new one. I thought this was a fast food place and didn't go in until friends told us how good it was. Now its our new favorite. We've had lunch here several times and dinner a handful. It does get busy so you should always get there early. The... More

We've eaten here a few times before and like it, but I would not say it is the best in the area. We had lunch, Guadalajara special, and lunch special of burrito, taco and rice, one soft drink and one flan for under $20 before tip. It lessened the enjoyment that they brought us the wrong order.
