This was my first time trying this restaurant and will be my last. This was the worst Mexican restaurant I have ever eaten at. The food had no taste , very bland. The service was very slow. we and one other couple were the only ones in the restaurant at lunch time and it still took 45 minutes to get our food. This is one restaurant I know I will not be going back to. Please do not waste your time or money as I did. Taco Bell would have been better and I do not like taco bell.
I work out at the gym down the block and I had ordered food to go before and never had a problem. The girls up front took my order exactly and although the wait was a little long (which surprised me because it's always empty) it was OK. I came back with my wife and children and at first the waitress was very nice and prompt, I asked for water with light ice and lemon, she brought me a glass filled to the top with ice and no lemon. My wife asked for information on the menu because she's from Russia and does not know Mexican food, at first the waitress was patient and then she got defensive. We ordered and 45mins later our food came out, my food had onions so I sent it back, 6 mins later a new burrito came out without onions and we finished and left. We came back the next Saturday and they gave my wife completely the wrong entrée, the waitress got noticeably angry when she sent it back and then when the bill came they had charged us for two entrees. My wife questioned the bill and a small Latino man with a scorpion necklace on came out from the kitchen. He had a really bad attitude and argued with my wife that she was wrong and he never makes the wrong food, after a tense 10 minutes he took the bill removed the incorrect order. I felt badly for the waitress so I over-tipped and we left.
Tonight after taking a break from there for nearly 3 months we stopped in for dinner after the gym, right from the get-go the same waitress came over and was very aggressive. I ordered my burrito in exact detail and the small man came from the kitchen asked me the same questions and I ordered exactly without onions and peppers. I went to the restroom and came back and the three of them, young waitress, the previous waitress, and the small man were all taking my wife's order for plain coffee but it was border-line arguing. I tried to smile and keep things polite and just waited for my food, 15 minutes later it came from the kitchen looking and smelling good but full and I mean stuffed with peppers. I politely asked the young waitress what happened and she said Si, yes I know you ordered without onions or peppers, I heard you... she went to the kitchen and the small man came right out and came right over to the booth and started yelling at us, telling us we were terrible customers, that he makes the food the way it should be and they don't like Russian people, they cant understand my wife's English and at that point I had enough and told him we are done, we are leaving and never coming back, he called me several curse words in Spanish and I answered him back in Spanish and we left. He does not speak great English himself and for him to embarrass my wife and proclaim his dislike for Russian people is wrong. We will never go back!
My husband and I haven't been to this restaurant in a few years. Last night he suggested we go to Los Amigos for fajitas and so we did. We sat a the bar, had a few drinks and our server "Little Taco" was very sweet and efficient. She remembered us from a few years ago. which was very cool.
Our fajitas were not sizzling when they came out but they were hot and they tasted delicious.
We used to frequent Bourbon Street in its day and also Bailey's. It was our favorite bar for a long time and I'm happy that we had a nice dinner and a few drinks last night. Looking forward to another visit.
Relocating from Houston (I know my Mexican/Cuban food) and stopped here for lunch. Salsa is nice and fresh (tastes homemade), I got the Ropa Vieja which looked a bit grayish but the awesome flavor was still there, the waitress was constantly checking on us and it was not that crowded (after lunch). I thought it would take me awhile to find my go to Latin rest but I have found it.
