“Horrible service and worse food!”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Went here for a quick bite after a day of sailing in long beach. Will never go back. Seats in booths were cut and repaired with duct tape, that should have been my first clue things would be bad. Waitress seemed nice enough but a little short. We order drinks, a guacamole appetizer and entrees. Drinks came but no appetizer, then half of the 4 entrees arrived but after only a minutes the made at the table guacamole came. I asked the server where the other entrees were and she said they were on the way. After five minutes no entrees. I asked for all the entrees to be brought out together so we could all eat together. The waitress seemed shocked that the out of order service was anything but normal and gave major attitude. 10 minutes later she tersely asked if we wanted our food now. We said yes and she served the four entrees, two of which were the ones we sent back and now had hot salads. I asked for the manager who was very nice and brought new entrees and comped the guacamole and drinks but that did not make up for the waitresses attitude or the horrible chicken tacos and runny beans.

We wanted some good Mexican food with a clean atmosphere and got what we wanted. The food was quality and the price was decent as well.

“Never heard of the place but we tried it anyways”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

It was good we ordered some killer nachos and my wife and i shared it and still didn't finish it. Sitting right next door to Yardhouse you would think maybe they would survive but I would go back. The drink were a little on the week side so hopefully they can fix that. If Yardhouse has more then an hour wait then hey its not a bad alternative.

“Great Service and Atmosphere, OK Food”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

Recently went to Tequila Jacks after going to the Long Beach Aquarium which is near by. The outside patio seating has a great view of the rest of Shoreline Village. Very festive atmosphere and good service. The food was reasonably priced; nothing fancy, similar to El Torito but that's what we were expecting. Would definitely go there again.
