“Great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2011

The menu is large and the food is great! The staff does an excellent job and the dining area is always clean. I got a draft beer and it was the coldest that I have ever had as ice was forming in the glass. No complaints here!

“Tasty food, huge portions, and great setting!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2011

We just discovered this gem of a Mexican restaurant, here in Charleston, WV. Apparently it opened in Nov 2010, but we only just found out after finding their name on a Val-Pak coupon that had been mailed to us. Apparently this place was formerly a "Smokey Bones" establishment, as well as other restaurants...hopefully everyone enjoys Las Trancas as much as we did to keep it here to stay!

We went midweek around 6 pm and discovered that a Mariachi band was playing there that evening from 6-9 pm. The band walked around from table to table and played fun songs. It definitely gave the place *character.*

The chicken enchilada and burrito were delicious, and the food came out in record time! The salsa was fresh and the chips were better than many other places around here. The margarita was tasty as well...apparently they offer specials on their margaritas during certain hours... We even saved room to try their churro desert, which was freshly fried and served with a giant scoop of strawberry ice cream.

And yes, they are open later than many other restaurants around...They have a full wrap-around bar with many flat screen tvs around, as well as a giant flat screen in the one other room...

Looking forward to coming back to try some fajitas!
