First of all, I'm not a competitor, nor do I know anyone here or have any motive to bash this place other than to warn honest people like myself who want an honest review. I lived in Los Angeles for 40 years and frequented authentic Mexican restaurants on both sides of the border so I think I am more than qualified to review the food.
I sat down and ordered an iced tea in Thai and the waitress answered me in fluent English that she didn't understand so I thought that was a good start. I told her I was in a hurry and asked her what she recommended that was fast.
She recommended a 3 taco special with rice and beans which I said would be fine. Then she asked if I wanted extra sour cream or guacamole. Now to someone fluent in English this infers that the meal comes with sour cream and guacamole so I told her I didn't want the sour cream and that she if could bring guacamole instead that would be great.
Complaint #1- When the meal arrived, the guacamole was in a separate little bowl, not on the plate, so I thought she would charge me for it. Bad business, I thought to myself, the waitress had been deceptive. (and yes, it was on the bill)
Complaint #2 - The rice was made with Thai rice. (anyone who knows Mexican food will laugh)
Complaint #3 - The black beans were undercooked and not good
Complaint #4 - The taco ground meat was not indiscernible as such and was very similar to the stuff you find in the tacos Taco Bell (not good at all)
Complaint #5 - The hard shell on the tacos tasted like the ones we find at home on the supermarket shelves (again, not good)
Complaint #6 - The cheese was difficult to access due to the fact that there was not enough of it on the tacos to even taste
Complaint #7 - The price!!! I was in a hurry and knew I would never be back to this place so I just paid the bill and left. I won't publish the price here but just for reference, a local Thai person can have a nice filling meal with a drink and food for about 1/8 the price. That's right you read it correctly, about 1/8 the price, so you can do the math.
