“Awful service, mediocre food”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Tried this restaurant with a group. It seemed like they only had two waitresses on staff, who were generally nowhere to be found. Drinks orders were forgotten and we spent a total of three hours waiting for our appetizers and main course. When asking why it was taking so long, the standard answer was 'five minutes'. When it finally came, the food was mediocre. The appetizers (most of us had nachos) were of supermarket quality, the main course was all right, but not nearly enough to satisfy. We all left hungry and cranky.

“Worst Food in Dresden”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Don't waste your money. Throw some chips from Kaufland, jarred salsa and canned corn on a plate, microwave and you have exactly the same thing that this restaurant serves you for 20 euros. It's definitely not Mexican, and frankly definitely not even restaurant quality food. They also had no interest in addressing the needs of our friend with food allergies. Refused to even talk to the chef to see if there was gluten in the food. Awful staff, awful restaurant.

“Not Mexican”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

After 3 trips to Espitas I finally realized I wasn't going to be satisfied. The food was fresh, it was just not made with ingredients typical for Mexican or Tex-Mex.
