“Really Bad”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Don't know where to start. It took 15 minutes to get a drink order placed and another 20 minutes to get the drink. After being there for over a half and hour and asked for some chips and salsa and was told they did not have any. A mexican Restaurant without Chips????. By the time we got our food we had been there about an hour and a quarter. The food came out in stages. Since there were eight of us you can understand but to get your dinner and it takes another 15 minutes to get your tortillas. Kind of hard to make fajitas without tortillas. Also the fajitas were over 50% green peppers. The tostada that was ordered came out as a small tortilla with beans lettuce and tomatotes, plus it was cold. Restrooms were pure filth.

“Good Margarita's!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Very good handcrafted margarita's, using freshly squeezed limes!! Tasty! Price for a Jameson's shot was a tad pricey, so switched to the 'rita's. Didn't have food, so can't speak to that. Nice locations, too!!

“Slow and Cold!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We dined at The Bank, Mexican Restaurant recently while staying in Temecula. Typically, mexican restaurants are really quick from order to table...well let's just say this restaurant is very atypical!!! 45 minutes from order to table! We ordered, the Fajita Burrito. Only one! We were sharing. We sat long enough to see 3 patrons send back their food stating it was cold. We were to the point of paying for our drinks and leaving when they brought our food. It was hot, but very bland. Definitely will not go back.

“A complete waste of time!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We came for lunch and were seated. It took forever to get a menu and were finally able to order 25 minutes after we arived. An hour later we still did not have our food. We got up, paid for our overpriced pitcher of beer -- $21.00 -- and left. Very poorly managed!!! We will never go back!!
