As one reviewer pointed out the only thing Latin about this place are the beer signs in the window.
Bathroom was filthy, paper on the floor, toilet seat well pissed on, door lock broken, and etcetera. I can only imagine what the kitchen looks like! But wait.... hair in my food.. I guess I don't really need to know what the kitchen looks like.
I've owned and operated over a dozen Latin themed restaurants in the states and Latin America. Clearly this was one of the worst attempts at creating quality Mexican food I've ever experienced.
That said, six of us decided to give the place a try after hearing good things from a local. Six different dishes were tried and all 6 were two steps above horrible, one of which was inedible.
Salsa was flavorless, (canned crushed tomatoes) the soup was a fair imitation of dirty dishwater and the mains were unbelievably bland. The chips were greasy, soggy and chewy. The tamales were drier than a popcorn fart, and the shrimp were nearly inedible. The pan fried oysters were greasy and dirty.
I suppose I could go on with a more detailed description of the nondescript and flavorless food but why bother. Suffice to say that this is one of, if not the worst meals I've ever had.
There are several Mexican restaurants in Astoria, two of which are very respectable and authentic. Save your money and frustration and go anywhere else for a meal.
Service was only fair and the server clearly let everyone know she was too busy to be bothered with something as silly as a second visit to the table.
Had she reappeared I would have liked to show her the hair in my food and soup.
Under normal circumstances, I might consider they were having an off night, but the quality of food, lousy service and inordinate prices for what is received reeks of rip-off.
