“Worst carne asada in town...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

I am a huge carne asada fan and have tried every place within 100 mile radius of my home. This is by far the worst. In fact, it smelled so bad I had a gag reaction when I unwrapped it. The manager said it smelled fine and refused a refund. If you like your burritos smelly and disgusting, this is your place.

“gettin = worse!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

same old stuff - chips old =usually out, foods ok & just no real great salsas or condiments as other restaurants have . Best negative yet- new wife & her 3 kids there - kids noisy, running all over the customer area, & tv on mexican cartoon channel for the kids entertainment!! TV for the kids -get a clue ? what kind of paying customers do u get in there to make ur payments 4 ya?? all mexicans -haha = i dont think so????? Get rid of the kids get a babysitter if needed -improve your salsa bar-keep fresh chips always full & put back the pico de gallo u havent had since tomatoes went up in costs 4 years back & u quit serving!! The small amount of pico u do get on some foods is mostly full of onions & so few tomatoes u need a magafying glass to even see. sad u cant figure out why ur buisness is off 70% now- OH! never your fault i guess>????????????

“Its Getting =WORSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

still chips are old tasting, salsas never full early or later after lunch time 12-1 pm. Got an order 3 seperate itsms -for 3 people in family - Amazingly - all 3 screwed up & wrong.They also have downsized thier order of frenchfries-smaller box than before & less fries. By the way -the salsas they give you in the to go or u get inside (same) are not a cooked ones -leave out on ur counter after or @ nite & seel the salmonilla starting inside the containers as the closed lids will swell up!!!!! Go Ahead & eat that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Its Gettin =Worse!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

sadly -i went in again- tortilla Chips still being used are =NOT FRESH!! Not crunchy- old & chewy- Redicilious!! Had a Tostada- again ther are using old dried out / not fresh tortillas = again chewey!! Meats are ok to good yet ?if they cant even use fresh tortillas ? whats the food really made like & when?? The chip & salsa bar is never stocked good & usually always is low or out. Just go up to counter & tell them - your order will be finished & eaten & you are on your way out before anyone will replenish that salsa & chip bar area!! Wait persons attitude is -why am i here ?? I dont care & well just run all the customers away too!! I understand they are opening a new place on monroe soon =why? when they cant even take good care of the one thats open?? By the way = seems like its also becoming a baby sitting place for the people that work there - kids always in restaurant, watching some mexican cartoon show on the TV thats susposed to entertain the customers.DUH???????????????????????????
