I’ll always be confused at how it takes 40 minutes for a take away burger and fries when there is less than 4 people in the whole place. The food is good, the service is embarrassing. Call it in, order it online or in person, it’s all the same. It all takes an hour.

Overall food was good. My burgers, taco, guacamole was ready on time. My order was missing my fries even though the guy at the counter appeared to check the order against the receipt before handing it to me. Tacos were especially tasty. However, I will not be going back. Man in front of me in line had a hand gun stuck in waist band of his sweat pants. Not secured and clearly visible. I understand without signage it is his legal right. However a masked stranger open carrying an unsecured hand gun does not make the family friendly kind of environment I look for.

OMG! first i call in order. 20 min they said . I got there 50 min later . they didn't even have A burrito ready. got home OMG my burrito was sooo greasy from the cheese that was over toasted n crunch.. the rice looked like maybe some oil..called them back to say make me another n they did. got the again n it looked a lot better. I said looked!! i unrolled it to roll it up like a burrito should be. Disappointed again there was no lettuce or tomatoes like it said in the menu. Disappointed again, there was NO flavor . rice no favor, pinto beans no flavor. pork always taste good . Why do they toast the cheese ? plenty of pork but chinsey with rice n beans. Maybe another one good but 2 stars was being kind. I hope they read reviews and shape up. yes the cashier had to ask me to come look at the cheese on the second one cause he spoke now english . You dont need to speak english good but YOU DO NEED TO KNOW HOW TO COOK!!!! And i didn't see them wearing gloves .

I placed a $50 order(vegan taco box) last night as a first time customer for pickup in 25 minutes...get to the Victoria St. location 15 minutes later..go inside to let them know I'm here and they hadn't even started on my order yet.😔 I go back outside to my car and the associate I spoke with comes out to my car to tell me that they are completely out of flour tortillas and if I wanted to change to corn, which I we could not due to dietary restrictions. The clerk basically then says that it was due to poor communication on their behalf that they didn't realize such and communicate their discovery to me earlier. I went inside again to speak with a manager and he refused to even look up from preparing orders and only spoke Spanish to the associate assisting me. I felt that this could have been handled WAY better knowing they messed up bigtime yet were not willing to even speak with a customer to fully resolve the issue. I simply got a refund and took my business next door to J Selby's. Very unfortunate experience for a first time guest that could have been a long-term customer. As a chain Mexican themed restaurant with multiple locations...you should be stocked with STAPLE items to sell to your guests..and if you mess up..OWN IT and engage with your customers that LIVE in the community where you come into to make and take our money! DO BETTER!!!

I was looking for a quick bite and had noticed this spot driving by times before. I was in the mood for a burger and am never one to pass up a taco. Ordering for two I got two burgers, two tacos and cheesy fries. We wouldn't go so far as to call ourselves food snobs but we know a good burger when we taste one and the Del Gordo burger is in our top 5 in the twin cities. We also have lunch for tomorrow, so much food and very reasonably priced. Very happy to have discovered this hidden gem, will be back.

Terrible tacos, tough meat, corn on the cob terrible. French fries soggy, hamburgers edible, but I think McDonald's does a better job for a lot less money. Everything was cold, Spent $48 for a family of 4. Had to microwave everything. I won't be going back

The quality has gone down considerably, while prices have gone up as much as 40% on some items over the last three years. I live in very close proximity to the place, and have supported the business for the years it's been open. To be honest, the pupusa restaurant that was there before was much better, and I wish this place would make an exit so we can have a better experience in the neighborhood.

Racist racist racist. I’ll never go back to this place again. I ordered and paid online, was also in line first. But the cashier still wanted to serve people who were Hispanic before me. It doesn’t feel good to be treated unfair.

Somehow this place made Explore Minnesota's 45 Best Restaurants in Minneapolis. The person taking our order was nice. We ordered the Gordo burger and fries. The burgers were large, due mostly to all the stuff on them. The burger patties were not that substantial. So, plusses were nice worker and lots of food. The burgers were not that great, beyond all the stuff on them. The fries were ok. On the minus side of the ledger, the quality and tastiness of the food was sub par. And there was one or two small flies or gnats flying around our table in January, in Minnesota. 10 degrees outside. So, contemplate that. I should have checked Trip Advisor before going. The low scores there (here) are more in line with our experience. So, a bonus review here is a failing grade for the Explore Minnesota guide for Minneapolis restaurants.

The restaurant owners don't care about they're employees, they exploit them to their personal benefit, so if they apply to work in one shift they won't respect that they will use you their way and move you from location to location even if you just applied for one location. Also, if the kitchen did a mistake they throw that issue to the cashier's because they don't want to loose the kitchen supervisor 🙄,

We went in for last minute food wasnt planing on even going here soon as i was approuched it was hostility and first i over looked it when talking to the cashier then, come to find out every single one of our orders was done almost like no one even tried my elote was filled with water to the top, my burrrito was literally falling apart the only thing i can say was half good was the horchata, once i realized that i hadn't done anything to make this woman want to do this i also realize were a famliy of BLACK people and everyone of ur orders were messed up with the cashier giving us attitude for no reason, they clealry have a problem if your not mexican or white, ill never eat here again to many good places out here, if want good food wear a white face mask or something, because 9/10 that was the only reason our food was the way it was .

Man, if the service/order accuracy were as good as the food I’d be in heaven! Unfortunately every time I order here some part of my order is incorrect: trying to remedy the order issues is a NIGHTMARE!

We visited this restaurant on the suggestion of our family, since we would not have tried it on our own. it was absolutely a great meal, the only down side to this day was that the hamburgers come with Avocado and they were out, i feel that my already yummy burger would have throw it over the top with the addition of that avocado. hopefully they will have some on my next visit.
