Charge on food boxes???

I first came for lunch. The hostess guide me seat. The waiter was nice and hand me menu. I read through. He came back n I ordered drink. Later on, waiter came back and I ordered chicken fajitas. Tortilla chips and salsa was good. I never heard restaurant charge boxes for bring meal home from plates.

My sweetie and I ate in and the service was impeccable, the food not too spicy for my taste and the margaritas packed a wallop!

We LOVE this restaurant! For ALL of our Mexican food cravings, we head here! I love that it is not a chain restaurant, it is pretty authentic through and through. Enjoy your time spent here! Great for large groups to couples.

I was pleasantly surprised at how amazing this place is. The service was excellent and quick. It was the most authentic Mexican meal I've had in years. It was like a home cooked meal from Abuela! To top it off the menu is reasonable priced. I would recommend a trip to Los Gallos

I love Mexican food. Normally at a Mexican restaurant it looks like you're getting a whole lot more than you really are. Not the case here what you see is what you get. The presentation was playing and frankly so was the meal. Like in the heading this is a completely average Mexican restaurant at best

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.
