We were passing through on our way to visit family and decided to stop in. Overall, we had an average experience. We ordered tacos, a burrito, and quesadillas. The asado beef was tough and a bit stringy, but the cochinita was tasty. The rice and beans that came on the side were horrible--no flavor at all.
The service was a little odd and inattentive. I wanted the family to eat Mexican since we were at a Mexican restaurant. My kids are good eaters and aren't the kind of kids who will only eat three foods--chicken nuggets, pasta and red sauce, and french fries. I had made a selection for the kids with their input, only to have my youngest yell out that he wanted french fries as the waitress wrote down the order. Lo and behold, their kid's menu had the typical unhealthy burger and grilled cheese with a side of fries options that I loathe. I told my son we aren't getting fries, but even after I told him no, the waitress told him, yes, he could have fries. What?! Thanks, but like I said at least two times already, we aren't ordering fries. This led to an embarrassingly loud argument with my child which would not have been so drawn out had the waitress not jumped in.
Another strange occurrence was when I requested salt for the bland rice and beans. The waitress went to get the salt shaker and when she returned, she walked right past our table with the salt shaker in hand to deliver the water she had poured for a table outside. Why in the world she couldn't drop the salt off as she walked by our table is beyond me. Yes, minor thing, but in conjunction with other points, it just added to the overall average experience.
The kids ate their quesadillas and rice and beans, though, and were satisfied (without the greasy french fries). The other people in our party were a bit underwhelmed, but both liked the cochinitas a lot. I do love the fact that they bring out chips and salsa when you sit down, and the chips are house made, not store bought. Overall though, average food and average service.
