LaNena0413 said it all. Once the restaurant changed owners, the food changed---dramatically. I do not know what management is thinking. The Tamal tasted like soap. (Literally, I think there was soap in the dough. ) The Chile Relleno was filled with something that looked like white cheese whiz. There are other options in Buffalo. (See my reviews of another area Mexican restaurant.)

I used to go to this restaurant a couple of times a month in the previous years. They had authentic food cooked by Mexicans. The food was great and the quantity was large. Once the restaurant change owners, the food has not been the same. It seems that Americans are now in charge. They now offer you smaller portions. It was the last time I come to this place.

I've been to this restaurant twice, and have been content with it both times - the food is good, portions are large but generally not overwhelming (except the 'Special dinner' which has to be served on two plates!) and the prices are affordable. Having said that, it's not amazing Mexican food - but it's the best I've had in Buffalo and better than anything I can get where I live (Southern Ontario). Only one issue re cleanliness - both times I was there, the carpet was just littered with dropped bits of food. This could just have been bad timing, though, because otherwise it was clean.
