“Frequent diners”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

I happen to think they have the best margeritas on the lake along with the free warm nachos and salsa to suit your taste. I don't care much for Mexican food but do enjoy the Pollo Lago and I'm sure that's mis-spelled.

“Best Margaritas!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

The food is good for the price, but my favorite part of this restaurant is their margaritas! They are PERFECT!

“Not the real thing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

Sorry, the restaurant is decorated like the real thing, but the food is not. We had a large party, including a native Mexican and we all agreed that it was more like Taco Bell.

Also, the waiter, who attended to us was really nice, but he seemed to be the only one glad that we were there. Not a real friendly atmosphere.

“Decent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

A little bit pricier and not quite as good as El Jimador. La Tapita taqueria next to Woodys is awesome!

“Not authentic Mexican.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

Just ate at this restaurant and it was Americanized Mexican food and poor quality for the price. Very small portion of fajitas with lime marinade that added more sour taste than flavor. It came with yellow American cheese and no rice. Would never eat at this restaurant again. Very disappointing.
