“Food is good service is very poor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

we have been eating here for years - typically Friday night is our 'mexican food night". But I think after last weekend, it may be our last for awhile. I like their food, but their server is nasty. She has also been there for years and becomes less customer friendly each time we go. She practically throws the food on the table. We always order the same two dishes but last week one looked very different in presentation. When I questioned it, she said - no that's how it always is. not true. then she walked away. Several of my neighbors have noted the same thing and no longer go. Friday's used to be quite busy. If the restaurant wants to know why, watch their service attitudes
