Restaurant details
Reviewed January 23, 2013

My mother and I visited Los Paisas, advertised as Mexican fast food, wanting a quick bite of lunch. Menu had variety and lunch specials at affordable prices (average $6 - 8 for entree with rice and beans). Restaurant was clean and young man behind counter was pleasant.
We ordered 1 Two Taco (ground beef, soft tortilla)lunch, 1 Two Enchilada (cheese) lunch and 1 Carnitas (pork) Taco on the side. Drink order was delivered quickly along with chips and salsa which was tasty. The beef tacos arrived first. The hamburger was mostly burned and crispy with loads of cilantro. The rice and beans were so cold that the cheese on top didn't melt at all. We hoped that the enchilada meal would be better but it wasn't. The tortillas, over cooked, were uncuttable with the plastic knife available. Cheese inside was minimal and both enchiladas were drowned in what looked like a home made red sauce but had no flavor. The beans and cheese were cold, no surprise. The pork taco arrived with shredded meat over cooked, dry and crunchy on ends, drowning in cilantro. Not even the juice from the lime slices provided could save this taco. We did make an attempt to try some of each dish but it was truly inedible and flavorless. Total for this $21.00. While the restaurant may look like it is worth a try please do not waste your time and money!
