Great food - service: hit or miss

Our food was really good (the soup in particular was excellent). Our waitress seemed very inexperienced and distracted throughout our entire meal (the other wait staff seemed very competent). Overall, a good place to eat - you will not be disappointed with the food!

Looks ordinary but the food is far from it. Freshly made guacamole, tasty salsa and plenty of chips preceded a spectacular shrimp salad with mango, enchiladas and more. This restaurant is definitely beyond the common version we see most often. It is all done with friendly and efficient service. I recommend them highly.

Kids ordered a burger and fries ($5.59), and chicken fingers ($5.59) and fries. I ordered the enchiladas la Paz (seafood enchiladas). Wife ordered the Sopa Azteca (chicken soup) ($5.99). Kids enjoyed theirs and wife enjoyed hers. The chips are good here, but the salsa is just good...not great. Enchiladas la Paz ($11.55) were pretty good, but, to be honest, Chi... More

My wife and I stopped in for the first time today and were we pleasantly surprised! The restaurant itself is an older repurposed building with minimal decor but reasonably clean (BBQ and Mexican restaurants should always be a little "funky"). The greeter turned out to be our waiter and could use some charm school but he was efficient and served... More

This Mexican restaurant rises above average because it seems that the food is skillfully-prepared and served by a staff that knows good food. The beans were cooked just right. They make tamales in-house. The supervisor helpfully explained how various dishes were prepared. Portions are large, so bring an appetite.

Had an "after church" lunch there yesterday. Have been looking for Mexican restaurant in this part of the woods and based upon Tripadvisor reviews, decided to give Las Tracas a try. We were not disappointed. Not too crowded, seated immediately and food delivered quickly. Other reviewers commented about a "very good Tex/Mex" meal, but it's much more than that. Having... More

We ate one dinner here. I got the Vegetarian #5 with a chile Relleno and bean taco. My husband got floutas and beef tacos. We liked the Relleno and floutas but neither of us were excited about our tacos. When the server brought my tea refill - I told her something looked strange in my glass. She tried to convince...

A friend and I came here for lunch a few days ago. It's an old steak house, very tastefully redecorated and cleaned up. Very pleasant atmosphere. We were seated quickly, and our server came for our drink order almost immediately. The restaurant features an extensive menu. The waitress was knowledgeable and helped with selections. Even though it was lunchtime, the... More
