I don't usually like to complain, but feel obliged to share our experiance so others won't waste their time and money on the drive. We ate here two nights ago and were exceedingly disappointed. When we arrived we asked to sit outside and were asked to follow the hostess, then she turned around and told us that our table wasn't ready and a few minutes later tried to seat us inside. When we asked what happened to our table outside, she said that the patio seating was being saved for reservations. The restaurant was not full by any means, so my husband went to ask if we could make a reservation so we could sit outside. A different hostess proceeded to promptly seat us at a table on the terrace. We ordered chips and salsa, which I was surprised we had to pay for. It was also a small basket that did not come with a complementary refill and the salsa tasted like it came from a jar. I ordered the prickly pear frozen lemon aid and it had the distinct taste of powdered lemon aid. My husband said his stuffed sopopilla was not bad and my chicken flaunta was quite good, but when I bit into the beef one it was a mouth full of oil and flavorless beef. The mexican rice lacked any flavor at all and the beans were boring.Our waitress was very nice and attentive and was very good to us. We were so looking forward to our meal after
reading about it in a guide book and seeing great reviews online. I think this place was once great, but they are not staying faithful to the quality they once had and it will burn them in the end. Save yourself the long drive and
