“Not a good place for Mexican food!”
Reviewed October 1, 2011

We did not like this place at all! It is close to our house so we gave it a try. We were sorry! The food was not good at all, even the nachos were terrible! We will not be going back!

“Tasty Mexican that is not a chain!”
Reviewed July 20, 2011

We ate here for lunch, and it was surprisingly slow. I drive by here in the evening and know they are crowded then. Our fahitas were decent portions (lunch size) for about $9, tasty, and they have an awesome green sauce for dipping the homemade chips. If you want an unpretenious, local Mexican place with reasonable prices, you'll like Vista Grande.

“"Dissapointment" and "Overpriced"”
Reviewed May 16, 2009

Our family went out to eat at this restaurant and oh my god was it terrible, first of all my girls ordered a rolly polly burrito and when it arrived it was a poor excuse for a soft burrito. Not big enough for even a baby! My wife ordered chicken fajitas and the chicken was equivalent to the size of a cut up chicken Mcnugget, it was unreal $11.00. I ordered a beef chimi which was more fried dough than filling and the portion was very dissapointing. When the waitress arrived and asked how our meal was we told her what we thought and she acted as though she expected to hear it. This place probably gets complaints daily and I just can't understand how the heck they stay open. My advice, go to taco bell, better food for the price. This place sucks

“As “Mexican” as Taco Bell”
Reviewed June 18, 2008

The service here is excellent, but the food isn’t authentic Mexican by any stretch. It’s pretty bland, and even the green sauce lacks kick. If normal Mexican is too spicy for you, this is your place, but if you like the real thing, keep shopping.
