Didn't know a Blue Moon went so great with lunch. Great atmosphere, nice appeal, salsa was about 8 star, cheese dip was not as flavorful but didn't taste like mayo either. Four pages of menu selections. This would definitely be a go to in the area. I'm certain there is an meal in this restaurant that not only is a... More

The service was good, and the prices are fair. However, I think the food here has been toned down for American taste. It just doesn't have the flavor I expect to find in Mexican food. It wasn't even good enough for us to finish our meals.

Went here for a Sunday lunch... what a surprise... very colorful and the friendliest group of folks I have ever seen in one restaurant. Our kids loved it and they had a massive dessert (super good) free for our 4 y/o birthday girl (along with Spanish and English Happy Bday song!) Wilmer (our waiter) was amazing and just a joy...

We happened upon this restaurant because it was next to our hotel. What a GREAT place! We had tables for 30 people, including a full table of a soccer team with a birthday! The staff was even able to keep up with us! Arturo and Rico were SO much fun and made our evening even better. The brisket tacos were... More

Don Papa Grande is located in a larger shopping center, next door to a K-Mart and another smaller cafe restaurant. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but once you enter, you are deluged with colorfully decorated chairs, wall hangings, other Mexican lore, and of course the ever present ethnic music to properly set the background for your gastronomic...

You really get it all here. The food is fantastic, the service is speedy without being rushed and the staff is very polite. I love that I can go here with the hubby and kids and not break the bank. Lets face it, price matters and you get a huge portion for a small price. Plus I really love the... More

Has been our family's favorite Mexican spot for at least 6 years. I love the white sauce that comes with chips. Fast, friendly service no matter how busy they get.

Hugo is the best tableside guacamole master....maybe I will make him a sash to wear proclaiming his excellent skills. I love this stuff, I crave this stuff. Sadly I have never eaten anything else on the menu, as I fill up on chips and salsa - just waiting for that big bowl of guacamole to be set before me.....my mouth... More
