The 10 children under 8 years old sitting at the bar got better service than we did. We listened to them scream for at least the last half hour we were at the restaurant trying to enjoy our food. It was absolutely ridiculous. Not only...that but our food came out cold. Come to find out, the whole playground was friends with the people that worked there so our service went out the window at that point. Truly pathetic to be treated like a tourist when we aren’t.More

Food was very average. The tacos were dry and the refried beans bland. We thought the food overpriced for the quality and the drinks are expensive as well. We would not return.

My friend and I ordered takeout. Her street tacos were just so-so. My enchiladas (one beef, one chicken) were lacking flavor, as well as the black beans and rice. We both agreed the meals were overpriced. Chips were light, crisp and salted just right, though!...Bar staff where we picked up our order was friendly and the place seemed interesting and nice enough, we just weren't all that impressed with the food.More

Horrible, one is too generous. Was told at the door the wait would be 10 minutes. Waited 40. After being seated at our table, we waited another 25 minutes without a visit from a server for drinks or even a cross word. Gave up and...left. Drove a half mile down the road walked right in and ate before I’m sure this place realized we had left. Ordered the same food at half the price. Steer clear if you value your time because they don’t.More

Told by bartender that the fish was very fresh. She recommended the “Chimay”. It was grilled red snapper with salsa mango, black beans refried, and rice. It was delicious. Was told it’s sister company is a seafood market so anything with seafood is fresh. I...will recommend it.More

We visited during spring break. The restaurant had character and was packed so we figured it would be an alright choice. The only people who enjoyed their food were the kids; and they got chicken tenders and fries. Chicken and pork belly tacos were dry....The fish tacos were fishy. And overall, pricing was high. $19 for taco plate, as an example . We would not return.More

We wanted an easy dinner so we chose to eat out. Popped in here because it was close by & 5 Stars on Facebook (but afterwards not sure why). Figured can't go wrong with Mexican. No one at our table was happy except our children...- they ordered fries and chicken nuggets. After looking at the high prices on the menu, the tacos plates were $19+. I ordered individual tacos - chicken and pork belly. Both tacos were dry with very little seasoning. Got charged $0.50 for sour cream to try and make it more edible. Others' fish tacos were fishy. Nachos were ok. We ordered a queso dip which was ok, but was more tex mex queso. Definitely would not chose again.More

We ordered take-out from La Paz. Food and portions were okay, but the servers/staff weren’t wearing masks. Our order was missing an entree. Overall the food was okay.
