My wife and two kids (9 and 10) ate here for dinner on Labor Day. We were the only customers inside restaurant when we arrived at about 6:20pm; one other couple was sitting outside. We were greeted friendly enough, but service was downhill from there. Chips and salsa were good but nothing out of the ordinary. Ordered a chicken fajita, spinach quesadilla, rice and drinks. Food came out in reasonable amount of time. Chicken on the fajitas was very bland although the vegetable mix of onions, red/green peppers and tomatoes was nicely seasoned. Seemed as if the chicken isn't marinated as it had little flavor. Rice was sub par. It was dry, lukewarm and also extremely bland, especially for a Mexican restaurant. Spinach quesadilla was good. My biggest complaint (and a common one at about every Mexican restaurant I've ever eaten at) is that we told the waitress we had eaten a late lunch and were just sharing the items we ordered, so we asked for 3 extra plates. Food was delivered...no plates..so we asked the guy who delivered the food for extra plates. We sat and waited for several minutes and kids were digging in, with no plates....I finally got up to go ask and saw the waitress chit chatting with another server...yes...holding our plates. It literally took 5 minutes to get three plates to put our food on. By then, the already lukewarm rice was cold.
This happens REPEATEDLY in the Mexican restaurants we eat in. In fact, it's become a running joke about whether we'll actually get plates to put our food on to eat. This has got to be some sort of cultural disconnect for it to happen over and over in restaurant after restaurant in state after state. I simply don't understand it...why don't they bring plates WITH them when they deliver the food, ESPECIALLY fajitas, which are often shared.
Anyway...an extremely average restaurant with indifferent service considering how slow they were on this night.
