“The worst Mexican food.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

The worst Mexican food I have ever tasted and bad service.
For where we started! The appetizers, we ordered pico de gallo, where indicated in the description on the menu who brought avocado. After a while of waiting for the waitress to ask about the avocado, she forgot to mention that they had not. If we want, she can replace it with guacamole, after we had finished the plate. It brought the guacamole, and surprisingly not fresh, like the refried bean that coming from from a can.

The burrito I ordered was very bad, the skirt steak hard and chewy.

I told my friend not coming back ever.

“Very good mexican food but poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2011

Their food is consistently good. Love the Chapaneco Suizo. It's a fried burrito filled with pork or chicken. The service can be described as mediocre. Very slow service and in our last visit two of the three entrees that we ordered, where served incorrectly. And if that wasn't enough I had to stand up and remind the waiter that I was waiting for a drink. The service in this joint has been declining with the years.
