“Bad service, worse food...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Staff was eating at the bar, and our waiter was paying more attention to the TV than to our table. The food was bland, dry and tasted cheap. I asked for some sauce to hopefully improve the flavor and it was extremely Hot, so I asked the waiter for something less spicy. To my surprise each sauce costs a dollar, mind you they were less than an ounce each. Our drinks came in plastic cups, even the menus are in bad shape you can barely read them, and to top it off the tip is included (illegal in Puerto Rico). I felt nickel & died and I will never go back to this place again. What a lousy excuse of a Mexican restaurant, cheap ingredients, flavorless food and undisciplined staff. Don't waste your money...

“Not Really Mexican, but...........”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Don't expect authentic Mexican food here, its western Puerto Rico after all, think about it. Think of it as Mexarican food. Some dishes are very good, the carne pastor was great. The fish is good, the blackbean soup interesting. The service, slow like in many places in PR, the waitress staff is not really trained. Don't come here in a rush, come to relax, talk, and eventually eat.

“Don't waste your money....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

In reality there is nothing mexican about the place, second I can make better burritos than that and to make matter worse we waited for 90 min to get our orders. Mexican does not take that long to freaking cook!! Anyways this place is average at the most and unless you have this BIG THING for mexican you are better of at a Taco Bell....Honestly!!! I do have to admit the waiter was for a fact of great service and very helpful. It really is not his fault that the kitchen screwed up!! Will not recommend this place...once is enough!!

“Well priced and tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

We love it here go once a month at least, sometimes just for the passion fruit margaritas =). Very well priced and the staff is wonderful (rare in PR).

“Avarage Mexican. Great Margaritas!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

I have been to this place a few times. Their food is ok, I like their Nachos Voladores with sour cream and their Margaritas are delicious and strong (especially the Parcha one), definitely worth the price. I would love to see more fresh and local ingredients in their dishes. It's usually pretty full so the food will take a while, but when it's empty their food takes forever anyway. The service is good. I think it's worth going to try and see if you like. It's a nice place to kill a Mexican craving in a Aguadilla.
