“Favorite Mexican!”
Reviewed November 28, 2013 via mobile

We've been going here for more than 20 years. The chile verde is the best sauce EVER! Super spicy and amazing flavor. The Lafayette location has a great patio for spring and summer. Service is usually a little slow, but as long as you're not in a hurry this won't be a problem.

“Love the food HATE the service”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Efrains has been a staple of ours for many years but our last two visits have made us rethink going there again. The food is good, the menu has a lot of choices from tostadas with a house made tart vinegar dressing to my husband's favorite chicken fajitas. The problem is the service, or should I say lack of service. I don't know if it is a lack of servers, untrained servers or just a lack of concern but it has finally reached the point that it just is not worth going here again.

“Delicious Mexican food, average service.”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

This place is a local favorite and the food is quite tasty- the standard suite of Mexican dishes done very nicely. The service is just OK. Had to wait a very long time with several other parties to be seated. Servers were constantly passing by ( in fact it was difficult for them to get out to the patio) but no one said or did anything to improve the situation. Once seated service was fine if a bit slow.

“A mixed plate”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Used to really like this place and could ignore indifferent service for really good food. Food seems to have slipped and it's gone from being a stand-by to off the list.

“no-nonsense, quick, inexpensive meal”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

This restaurant is perfect for a low-key, inexpensive, friendly sit-down place.

The service is prompt and friendly and the food is fairly good. The costillas (pork ribs) and steak san lorenzo are especially good. The overall vibe of the place is very laid back but efficient at the same time.

Definitely worth going for a quick bite to eat.
