“Couldn't leave fast enough”
Review of Old Pueblo Cafe

Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

I went there with a colleague because they advertise themselves as a Mexican restaurant, when in reality you could get better authenticity at taco bell. Service was slow at best and everything we are tasted like a different texture of rice paddie. When we complained we thought we were going to get Mexican food and asked where the seasoning was we were told " we don't do that here, go to Phoenix for that". I don't know how any restaurant can proudly admit they don't season their food but my colleague couldn't finish his food. After we expressed our dissatisfaction it was clear we weren't welcome and the waitraice began ignoring us and walking by as if we weren't there. We had to flag someone down Just to get a to go box and a check so we could find a reputable place to eat. Completely disappointed.

If visiting the Wigwam resort and tired of resort food, try this wonderful place where locals jam in for Great food and Mexican icebergs( a corona beer with a dollop of frozen Margarita mix which floats to the top..hence iceberg). Food is terrific..atmosphere really fun..loads of outdoor seating. Heaters in winter..misting system in summer. GO!! Great place!!

From the time we sat down to the time we got our food, we were constantly requesting service from any one that would even finally walk by. We made the mistake of sitting outside since it wasn't too hot, but forgot that the flies are horrid starting in May. Not sure if the servers do both inside and outside but we didn't get refills unless we flagged someone, we waited for our menus, we waited to order, and then we waited 40 mins for lukewarm food. Wine was warm and tasted old, the food was ok. The only ones happy were the birds that would wait for someone to leave their table so they could dive bomb their left over food.

Hosting an event at the wigwam. Recommended we pop in here. Group of 7. Food came out 75 mins after order. Ice cold. Chased waitress all night. Drive the car or call the cab. Walk is nice. Food and atmosphere is not enjoyable.

Very friendly service and advice on the menu but food awful. Bland, lots of cheese, salty refried beans, really wanted to like it but awful. Salsa and homemade lemonade good but that was it!
