Great find! The server brought us homemade salsa and chips and water as soon as we sat down. They were both delicious. I had the veggie fajitas for lunch. They were also really good. It did however say on the menu they came with zucchini, but there were nine in mine. Over good food for a reasonable price!

Sat outside, was a very busy evening. Short staffed but they tried but had to ask 3 times for water. Menu was good and so was the food.

Stopped in after a long, hot day of hiking in the park. We got an outside table relatively quickly, but from there, things took a while. Fortunately they had entertainment outside, which helped pass the time. Chips and salsa were excellent. For, once it or there was very good. We enjoyed the meal, just wished it didn't take as long...

Don't take any dish with beef inside, it looked disgusting. While we were eating we had 2 black outs in 10 minutes!!! Never happened in my life :/. Although we were quite lucky with the service, the family behind us didn't get served for about 45 minutes...

The worst Mexican in the states. I must say, in three rivers (or three souls considering the population) there is no big choice. But if you can choose stay away from this. The worst Mexican food I have ever tried and I must say that it is quite difficult to eat bad Mexican in the states. 15 minutes to get... More

Runny re-fried beans and weak salsa combined with super slow service and bland food. Go to the pizza joint instead.

Recently, we were in Three Rivers for 2 nights. Although there were a few restaurants in Three Rivers to choose from, we decided to try Cafe Mendoza. The first night. we were not disappointed. The chips were fantastic, crunchy and slightly seasoned. The salsa, well I guess we liked it because they had to keep refilling our salsa bowls (jokingly... More

The wife and I weren't very impressed with either the food or service. That being said, we finished our plates and left a good tip so nothing terrible here just nothing impressive.

It's the only Mexican Restaurant in these parts and we found the food to be quite disappointing. The predinner chips were horrible...dry and far too crunchy. We had nachos that were not like the usual nachos. The chips were laid out in neat order with a dribbling of cheese on them and a dabble of beans...very poor. The quesedilla was... More
