OK not great

Stopped in for dinner on a shopping trip to Grand Forks. First thing I noticed was that the rugs needed a good cleaning. Staff was pleasant and helpful. The brought out Chips and what they called salsa, seemed like canned tomatoes with cumin stirred in, no onions or peppers. The chips tasted... read more

The service is fast and friendly. The food is always fresh, hot and good. Large portions and nice clean place. Get there early because you always have to wait in line for a table but usually not too long.

The service was the only thing of value. Gross fake margaritas. Food was below par. Don't waste your time and money.

A Wed night Dinner Group stop - had 14 people - service was great and had a fun server - she had to be to put up with 14 of us! Chips were very good - their regular sauce was average - the "hot sauce" was okay but not great. Most everyone's food was okay - mine was below average... More

If you enjoy eating mexican food, then don't even bother opening the door to go in. If your taste buds are more into Norwegian food, then this is the place to go for Norwegian/Latino bland food.

My wife and I have been eating here for over 30 years and the food and service has always been to notch. I like the California burrito.

Good consistent food that hasn't changed since my childhood. Usually get the 'El Poco Loco & Taco' but everything tastes good.

The last two times we have been here (both times in this last month), we had a great experience (as we always have had). I love their salsa, which isn't chunky and not too spicy. Their chips have a good crisp to them with good flavor (without being too salty). I love that they have both Coke and Pepsi products.... More

I like Mexican Village Hot sauce, not too spicy which is good for me. I am Norwegian and unlike other Norwegian reviewers, I like their Mexican food. I usually go on Saturday and get the choice of any specials during the week, my favorite being their Mexican Pizza, usually more than I can eat so some goes home with me.... More
