Decent outdoor patio which is fun to sit outside. Group of 4 of us went on a very busy Friday 5 p.m.
We enjoyed each other's company but the food was AWFUL as were the drinks... Service was ridiculously slow but friendly. We didn't mind as we sat and talked.
I had read other reviews and frankly they are all telling the truth; this place is awful. Margharita's are watered down; we had the blended and the non-blended; both were bad.
We had guacamole which was the only decent thing; bland as could be, though. The chips that came to the table were bland and tasteless and did not taste fresh. The salsa was like watered down tomato juice out of a can; only 1 or 2 tiny bits of tomato in it.
Burrito was awful and covered with some dark orange sauce that was inedible. The carnitas pork in there was completely tasteless and dry.. It was unedible.
Chile Relleno; I don't think they even had the chile in this dish. It had some very ":liquidy" cheese and that horrible dark orange sauce and there was no fried part. Absolutely inedible.
Enchilada had the same dried out carnitas in it with that horrible dark orange sauce. It was suppose to come with a green sauce I had asked for; but didn't.
Ceviche tacos were not fresh and there was no flavor in them.
Fried fish tacos were totally breaded and very little fish. Again very litlle flavor
Side salad was awful watery mess on plate. Thousand island dressing very obvious out of a huge commercial size bottle and tasteless.
All in all one of the worse Mexican meals I have ever had. It is obvious they use mainly frozen and canned, processed foods and not even good quality ones at that.
I just want to know; doesn't a restaurant owner have any kind of pride over what they serve? It is obvious they are in it for the money and haven't tasted their food OR have no taste buds.
Our total bill with tip was just about $100 and totally not worth ever $25. Horrible meal and I will NEVER go back there again.
