“Not as good as it used to be”
Reviewed March 8, 2012

We always loved this restaurant but the last two times that we visited were not that great. My husband and I both ordered the "Chef Special made with shrimp, scallops and chicken breast cut into strips, sauteed with bell peppers, onions and tomatoes in seasoned salt and white wine. served with lettuce and guacamole". It was very dry and the shrimp, scallops and chicken were overcooked and dry. The whole thing was very dry. I have had this several times before and loved it. No one asked even us how our meals were. Very disappointing. We knew that we could get authentic Mexican food at Rancho Viejo but after our last two visits we aren't sure we'll go back. The servers were nice.

“Excellent food, excellent staff, reasonable prices. Can't wait to go back.”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

First time trying this Mexican restaurant. Nice Mexicanish decor, not unusual. Started with 2 for 1 margaritas, always a plus. Slight communication issues...... Real Mexicans in a Mexican restaurant. How unique. Not a slur, please..... It added to the charm and originality of the restaurant. Everything was terrific. Can not wait to go back..

Everything I have tried here so far has been good. Really like the Mexican pizza. The servers are very friendly and take good care of you.
