Service fine but not difficult given only 8 other people in.
Menu much too long. Never a good sign. And didn't really show the dishes clearly. How can vegetarian options be the same price as meat? Greedy.
The hornados I had at lunchtime in the market was succulent and tasty in contrast and a third the price.
Good reviews from people who think McDonald's is a treat?
Pedestrian cooking.

We are vegetarians and this Mexican restaurant offered a few vegetarian options. We ordered burritos and enchiladas, and they were made with beans, cheese, and fajita style vegetables. They did not have jalapenos, but did have some spicy salsas. The guacamole was good. The service was attentive, but single guy working all the tables, so a little slow. However, they did make an effort to accommodate our dietary needs. Overall a good dinner experience.

I normally don't jump to conclusions... especially when assigning blame to restaurants for causing sickness but all three of us got sick and this was the only common place we ate.

Food was standard Mexican and I would consider it "OK". Not worth the $9-11 price

We stopped in here for a quick evening bite with friends after a long day on the road. It was the perfect place to relax and enjoy a Margarita and Supreme Nachos. Both were perfect and hit the spot. The portions are generous on both food and drink. The atmosphere relaxed. It is definitely a place I will return to when in Riobamba.

One of my favorites in town

First, when I read some of the reviews of this place it gets me very angry… yes it’s not the fine dining experience place but give me a break its Mexican food in a small town this is not Pujol or a Michellin restaurant so those reviews (bad ones) are not correct. Second, this is one of my favorite restaurants in town, it has a nice decor, its clean and the staff is really good, the food (for what you pay) it’s out of this world in the scale of value and flavor. Please, do yourself a favor and go there, ask for the “El Rey del Burrito Mixto” grab a local beer (Pilsener) and have youself a break from everything, enjoy the melty cheese in a chill ambiance with locals while watching the soccer or having a chat with your friends. The best part? Your pocket wont even notice.
Again, this is one of my favourites in town.
