“The word around town is "thatn the white chefs should be deported!"”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

The food is horrible, no spice, no flavor! No choice for a spicier salsa, it's a shame, the beautiful building, one would hope for more!
It did taste like it was old and had been microwaved. Never will go again, wonder why the parking lot is so empty?
Tia Babes was good as a "to go place" before she built this beautiful
outlet of 'nothing. Shattred dreams, so sad.

“Embarrassed to have taken my friends”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

I asked the waiter about the carnitas, and he said they were outstanding. So I ordered them. When the server set the food in front of me, the smell was that of pork that had been stored in a refrigerator for a couple of weeks and then microwaved. And it tasted worse. Terrible understates the case. My friends ordered Carne Asada which was almost as bad. I cannot believe any restaurant would keep leftover meat and microwave it and tell patrons it was fresh. This was my first and last visit to this place.

“Terrible”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

A group of us went to this place after hearing great things from others. It was nice looking place. The food and service however was very poor. One person in our party had a Carnitas Burrito. The meat tasted old and rancid. It was sent back. The chicken fajitas were tasteless and dry. One person in our party was sick the next morning. We were all very disappointed. Not good at all. I do not recommend, and will not go back again.
