“Such a disappointment.”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

I used to go to Mrs. Lady's as a child. This was my first visit in a couple of decades.

If you judge the quality of a meal solely by the quantity of the meal, this is the place for you. I do believe that is what the restaurant is going for, and they do that well (always have). What they don't do well: service - slow and not remotely friendly; atmosphere - tired and dated with no character; Mexican food - the salad looked like the quesadilla looked like the enchilada -- basically everything is just a big pile of meat and sauce and cheese, maybe some lettuce or beans thrown in. It's not really Mexican food. Even assuming they aren't trying to portray themselves as a Mexican restaurant (and maybe they aren't), the food has no quality other than "huge". Not what I want to spend my money on.

On the bright side, a 10-year-old at our table proclaimed it "the best taco ever!" So, if you are a 10-year-old boy, or like to gorge yourself regardless of quality of food, this is probably a good place for you.

“Not remotely Mexican”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Some people love it but my experience was always lots of ground beef with very little resemblance to any actual Mexican food.

“Not as great as I remember”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

Haven't been here in years, I had great memories of excellent Mexican food. Well, the food was not hot, it was pretty expensive, slow service, run down building and bathrooms. Probably won't return, there are many better places at the Lakes to eat.

“Insane taco!”
Reviewed February 29, 2012

I've come to find that people either love it or hate it. It's American-Mexican, but their salsa is pretty awesome and their sopapillas are to die for! The Mini Insane taco is more than enough, and the chewy, doughy shell is so yummy! It can get pretty busy for dinner, so come early!
