“Camarones Viejo was excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

It is a very roomy family run Mexican bar and restaurant. I enjoy the friendly attitude of the staff, they treat the customers like everyone is a regular. It is great for families and we have taken as many as 14 with 2 hours notice. I love their Bacon wrapped shrimp and the Cadillac Margaritas. The location is great, one block from the lake and the city park. Service was fast and friendly.

“Good food, great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2012

The food is good--nothing exceptional about the menu, just standard Mexican american food, fresh, flavorful and well cooked. The lunch prices are great. The service is okay.

“It won the downtown battle, not the war”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2012

Capable of putting the "other" Mexican restaurant out of business (though Las Palmitas was capable of doing that all on its own), this restaurant does what every town wants: provides non-offensive, reasonably priced, and average tasting Mexican American food to young and old alike.

You won't leave amazed. But you also won't leave depressed or sick. This isn't authentic. But you aren't in Mexico. The staff is friendly and they work hard to accommodate groups large and small in the front room or in the cantina.

Sometimes, you just can't decide what to eat. Or you aren't interested in paying for decor that passes for cuisine. Nachos anyone?
