Had a great time

It's in a fun plaza-like thing. Food was above average for this type of place.. service was fast and friendly. atmosphere festive. perfect for a family outing. salsa had an herb that made it different and tasty.

Service was bad, drinks were worse. They spilled basket of chips first round then drink next time. Forgot to bring us menu's to order. The pictures on the menu were terrible and would have been better just left off. Sorry just being honest..will not return.

Had lunch at Picante's Grill today. The food was excellent. It was fresh and well cooked. The salsa was unique, some of the best we have tasted. In a neat, old historical building. We will return.

Small place. Food was very good. Ask for cheese dip and didn't get it but charged us for it. Punch wasn't my favorite. Service and food was very fast!

Excellent service and better food. It's a small venue but service and food were both very large in quality. Very clean inside as well.

I did not want to drive far from my hotel and this location was nearby. They had a TripAdvisor sticker on the window which gave me some confidence. I was seated and brought salsa and chips which was good. I also ordered guacamole which was equally as good. My main course was 3 cheese enchiladas and rice with beans. It... More

The atmosphere & location are very nice, but the food was lacking. It was almost TV dinner quality. The staff was friendly though, and helped us when a panhandler was begging us for money outside the establishment.
