“Mediocre Food - Dismal Service - Pathetic Atmosphere”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

Any reviews of this restaurant above terrible have to be from employees (which is surprising since they do not seem to care about giving even reasonable service) - or more likely owners and their very good friends. This place has no redeeming qualities that we can recognize and we absolutely do not recommend it to anyone - friend or foe!

“Alvarez ROCKS!”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

The best Mexican food in the Southeast, possibly in America!! I've recently fallen in love with the chicken taco's, and you simply must try the tortillia soup! The chips and the salsa here are the best!

“This place is going down hill”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

This used to be my all time favorite Mexican Restaurant for years and years. The last 2 times we went there the service was so slow it was absolutely rediculous. The attentive service that once was is no longer. I will never go back as I saw a Cockroach climbing on the wall in the dining area. If you see one out there imagine how many are in the kitchen. That was the final straw. I will never step foot in there again.

“1 out of 3 of us liked our dinners.”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

3 of us went in for a Thursday night dinner. The server was very slow and not attentive at all. ( brought the food before silverware) After a 40 min wait for dinner and no chip and salsa refill, the 2 beef dinners weren't very good, but the chicken chimichanga was very good. Won't recommend.
