TripAdvisors....really? Do you really think this is the BEST place to eat in Johnstown? Holy cow; I am utterly shocked!
I took my family to eat here and was expecting GOOD Mexican food. We could care less about the decor, location, proximity of tables, etc. because we were expecting good food. What we received was anything but....GOOD.. Yes it was Saturday night, but the place is an organizational disaster. You wait in line for a table with the carry out people and no one takes your name, number of people, etc. you just wait until the line ends. Again, no problem, I will wait for GOOD Mexican.
The problem was the food. The best were my kids chicken nuggets and fries. They were quite tasty....it was all down hill after that. My waitress was also the hostess who was not particularly friendly. All of the wait staff were running around like chickens with their heads cut off. No order; roughly 8 of them and we weren't sure who was our server.
The chips were ok but the salsa lacked spice/flavor (which is very un-Mexican). I ordered the Guadalajara special and it was a jumbled mess on a plate. The chicken tostado was ok but the beef one (along with tamale) was not appetizing. The guacamole lacked flavor and everything tasted the same. My wife's Rey Azteca special also was one giant taste of Play-dough mix. No discernible flavor or taste.
The people have spoken and this place is loved. I do not know if the folks lived in Mexico, Texas, California, or even Atlanta or DC (which the latter two I have) but this place is a step near Taco Bell. Blah. My taste buds, along with my stomach, were offended by this choice. When the best part of your menu is kids Menu, run....rapido!
Ps- the area gets quite cold. When you are having dinner and the door keeps opening/closing with 20 degrees + strong wind, your meal definitely is affected. You guys might want to invest in a better entrance. It is tough to enjoy your meal with the mountain air beating down your face.
