This is has been a favorite of mine whenever we pass through town. Next time, we will pass this place. We visited on a night they had tacos for 99 cents. Sounds like a good deal, if you can get a server to come to your table. Me and a co-worker waited for several minutes before somebody came and took our order. When the cheap tacos arrived, they were thin and almost meatless. After chowing down on the cracker-like tacos, I wanted more, as the wafer tacos didn't staunch my hunger. Good luck getting some service. Finally, a second plate of the thin-crispies arrived, it was time to pay. Alas, they didn't make that easy either. Waited and waited and waited. My advise? Stay far far away frmo Alvarez Mexican Restaurant. The place has gone down hill....big time.

Very below average Mexican meal. I ordered the taco salad. It had about one tbsp of cheese, maybe a half of a black olive sliced, a tbsp of guacamole and a completely bland flavor. The gravely was brown with no flavor on my husband's enchiladas. The fajitas our friends shared were equally unflavored with very little guacamole or other toppings (other than lettuce). No reason at all to return. You can't even order a marguerite with your meal. Go anywhere else.

If you're looking for good value along with authentic floors, stop here. Daily lunch specials are $4.99/5.99 and more than ample portions.

This is a real gem in the heart of Palmetto and in my opinion the best Mexican food around. I can't stop eating the chips in salsa that are served before you order. This is a great place for families and they have a nice area for outdoor seating also.
