“Fair food accompanied with horrible service”
Review of Casa mendoza

Casa mendoza
Ranked #8 of 17 Restaurants in Three Rivers
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed June 17, 2013

It's the only Mexican Restaurant in these parts and we found the food to be quite disappointing. The predinner chips were horrible...dry and far too crunchy. We had nachos that were not like the usual nachos. The chips were laid out in neat order with a dribbling of cheese on them and a dabble of beans...very poor. The quesedilla was filled with tastless cheese. The taquitos were almost OK but lacked anything special.

However, the worst part was the slow service and carelessness of our waitress..she spoke little English and it was hard to communicate with her...at the end of the meal we waited forever for her to return with the check...I finally had to get up and track her down.

They do have a nice outdoor area for dining. The inside area looked far too compact and crowded for a relaxing evening meal.

They do not have margaritas here...no full bar...only beer and wine.

The food was pretty good, a bit greasy, but otherwise tasty and fresh. The salsa was excellent. The servers were all very nice but seemed to lose track of who was waiting to order, who had ordered what, etc. Overall, for a small restaurant in a small town on an obviously slower time table than most areas, it was a pleasant experience.

We were really disappointed with this restaurant. Everyone said this was a great place and in fact the food was very good for most of the people in our party. It took over an hour for the food to be delivered to our table.
Most of the people in our party had very good food. Mine was terrible- overcooked chicken in a chicken salad. Yikes.

There aren't many choices in Three Rivers. We ate here twice. The food was ok. One negative - both times we were simply pretending not to see how dirty the tables were...
