“Very disappointed”

The service was very slow and poor. We waited a half hour for nachos. When they finally came, they were cold, and lacked flavor. We had to ask for refills on water.

“Too loud”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

Very noisy restaurant. Food was fine; service was on the slow side. Glad we got there at 5:30 on a Friday because there was a long wait by 6:30. Carnitas were tasty, but the "special sauce" wasn't anything special. Slightly above average for Mexican food in Alabama, but a bit overrated on TripAdvisor.

“Great Mexican”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

The food is great here. That's why they are soooo busy. My favorites are the pork tacos. Soft taco with tender pork and salsa. The restaurant has great chicken breast dishes too. The shrimp soup is a meal in itself. Delicious.

I have eaten at this restaurant alot. I am not sure if they are overwhelmed with the restaurants that are coming up next to them but the staff seem to have their minds else where. We visited there and the waitress came to get our drinks brought the wrong kind. We didnt complain. When the guy brought our chips out we asked him for napkins and he brought extra plates. i am not sure what is wrong. It was one of our guests birthday and we didnt even get our birthday song :(

“Good food SLOW service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

My wife and I ate there last night with some friends, the food was very good, the service not so much. They were very prompt about taking our drink orders and refilling our drinks. However we run out of tortilla chips and dip, no one bothered to refill it, we tried to flag down several waiters and we were routinely ignored. It took us almost 45 minutes to get to order our food meanwhile the tables around us people who come in well after us had their food already. The restaurant had multiple TVs going at the same time and was very crowded and loud, They attempted to seat a small group of people and realized that there was no table so they were standing around looking for a seat, we had a few seats available at our table so they had them sit there. Certainly not what I would expect from a nice restaurant, and the service was completely and totally unacceptable. I have never been to this restaurant before and its not very likely that I will go back.
