“Very bad experience DON'T EAT HERE . Muy mala experiencia NO COMER AQUI”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

Before this place was a real delight. , had good food and excellent service but this week we were here again after so long and the experience turned out crap. starting with the girls that should give you the welcome seems to dislike being interrupted while they speak of their TV show."premios lo nuestro" the buffet seem like the leftovers from a party where you came late. there isn't a good assortment . , there is no a cordinated an logical line because they are sweets next to the chicken broth which is next to the soup of elbows , the cook does not have dinner ready and you have to wait for him to prepare a fart meat full of skins and with an attitude like they were giving away food he talks all the time with his friends from other areas .maybe he does not know that spits all over the food when he talks,and now he straw that broke the camel's back: when I get up to serve custard or nasty surprise I carry a stack of 5 cockroaches piled up in my plate YES this place has roaches but don't believeme go by yoursalfe and find out . .then don't say I did't warned you today is 02/22/2014 . I really hope this place gets to be what a day was.

Antes este lugar era un verdadero deleite . ,tenia buena comida y un excelente servicio pero esta semana estuvimos aquí de nuevo despues de tanto tiempo de no visitar este restaurante y la experiencia resulto una porquería . empezando por la muchachas que te deberían dar la bienvenida parece que les desagrada que las interrumpan mientras hablan de su programa de televisión . el bufete parecen las sobras de una fiesta ala que llegaste tarde no hay un buen surtido siguiendo una linea están los camotes dulces al lado del caldo de pollo el cual esta al lado de la sopa de codos ., el cocinero no tiene comida lista y tienes que esperar a que te prepare un pedos de carne llena de pellejos y con una actitud como si te estuvieran regalando la comida dice pronto pronto que ya me voy habla todo el tiempo con sus compañeros de otras áreas creo que no sabe que mientras habla le caen gotas de saliva a la comida y ahora la gota que derramo el vaso cuando me levante para servirme flan o sorpresa asquerosa me lleve una pila de 5 cucarachas amontonadas arriba de la comida si señores este lugar tiene cucarachas no me crean vallan y comprueben lo ustedes mismos no digan que no se los advertí hoy es dos de Febrero del año dos milcatorce. de verdad espero que los encargados regresen este lugar a lo que un día fue.

“Great value! Great Brunch”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

This is a great standard. The restaurant is open, airy and has great natural light. Just the kind of place you want to find yourself on a Sunday afternoon. Authentic Mexican food with a tortilla maker making fresh tortillas and quesadillas to order. Nothing fancy but the price is a steal! $8. Can't go wrong. The perfect way to start a Sunday and a great place to take people.
