Our young family and friends love this place. Large portions, great food. We have had chimichangas, Seafood dishes, huevos dishes, quesadillas. Our favorite is their fresh salsa, which has some heat and is always fresh. Service is attentive and quick. Appeals to a variety of tastes.

My sister and I eat lunch here one day each week, our week is not complete until we do, It is the people who make the place. The food is good but it is the willingness to go the extra mile. I have food allergies and they allow me to substitute a particular item. We always eat the same thing,... More

We were staying at a local hotel and asked the hotel staff to recommend a "good" Mexican restaurant. Sooooo, we headed to Don Papa Grande's. Typical Mexican fare and ambiance. We ordered the "Dinner for Two", which featured four or five different entree's plus re-fried beans and rice and a dollop of guac. The food was bland and tasteless. Sufficient... More

Maybe just a bad day or the place is going downhill. Service was weak and it was not busy. Received wrong main course, but decided to try it any how. Grilled shrimp salad. No flavor and shrimp were like rubber. Oh, and the salad dressing came from a packet. Side taco also no flavor with a totally dry finely ground... More

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

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
