“Good food poor service”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

The atmosphere is very nice with streamers hanging from the ceiling. The food was great but the service was very poor. I ran out of tea 4 times.

“Great Mexican, great prices, great atmosphere”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We enjoy dining here, and average once a week. The food is authentic and delicious. We love
the lively atmosphere and decor. The booths are spacious, and large enough for a private
feeling. Another thing that brings us back regularly is the waitstaff. They are all personable and
extremely friendly.

“Just ok”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

We went there for dinner on a Sunday night and were disappointed. Food was decent, however, the service was horrible. I believe the waitress was new and unfortunately no other staff did anything to help her. She had to ask about our orders 3 times before she put them in and it took her 20 minutes to get our checks. We felt bad for her since she was having such a rough time and disappointed that the management didn't help her at all.

“Mexicano Deliciouso!”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

We had lunch here late in the week of our vacation stay - I wish we'd gone sooner because I'd go back again in the same week. The service was exceptional - not to mention the food and drinks! My frozen margarita was cold and frosty and smooth! The enchiladas were STUFFED with chicken and cheese and the red sauce was yummy! I'm not a big guacamole fan - but, El Cerro's was deliciouso! All four of us cleaned our plates down to the last morsel even though we were overly full - the portions are large, and well, we ate a lot of the warm chips and quite-possibly-the-best salsa I've ever had!
