“Food was OK, service was borderline”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

We have friends that eat here frequently so we thought we would give it a try. The service was marginal. Our waitress made multiple errors on our bill and we had to return it twice for correction. We did get our food rather timely. We both ordered different kinds of ala carte tostadas. They weren't anything special. The restaurant has been in town for decades. There are other establishments in Carp that serve Mexican food. I would suggest you try any of those first.

“Average at Best”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

The service was far below average and SLOW, but the food is OK. Certainly not the best Mexican food I have ever had, but good enough to overcome the horrible service. I'm not sure how much the waitress was to blame as it seemed that the kitchen couldn't keep up and the food took forever. The crazy thing is the restaurant wasn't that busy.

“Not all its cracked up to be”
Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

Went here why we were camping because it got pretty good reviews and we try to go someplace new each time we go. Menu's were filthy which is not how I like to start out. Busy place midweek for dinner. Decor just ok. Burrito dry. Enchiladas ok. Will not go back as there are many other options.
