Wait time for food was ridiculous. Waitress didn’t give good service and quality of food was terrible!

Wait staff and employees were extremely accommodating. The only problem was that the band is so loud that you cant hear people at your table.

Our visit was wonderful and there were 13 at the party. The server hustled and did a great job responding to everyone's request. Age group 65 - 4. The only thing about the entire evening was that it was much too hot with all those people the heat should be off and the air on. We had to track down the manager to find him and then ask to reduce the heat and until 30 min prior to departure the room began to cool down. This was a family Christmas gathering and the food was good and drinks were made to order and the bill including tip was around $500 which is reasonable. The temperature of the room is the only bad mark so it still rates a 85% . Great Great place - food, ambiance, noise level all good and I will go back to try more items on the menu. Our visit extended 3 hours.

A group of us met here after church for brunch. It was a first time for most and we were not disappointed. We had a great time!

It was AWESOME and more than what was expected. I had passed this place many years and never stopped. This was the only option available for a large group...so I decided to take a chance. The patio location was beautiful with the lighting and everything. Not to mention an unexpected bounce house that the younger kids enjoyed. I just wish you could hear the DJ a little better outside. But other than that, the food and atmosphere was WONDERFUL. We will be back

We love El Primo and usually have a good experience. Food was great. Our waitress was not as good as we normally have at El Primo's. We had a group of 12 and everyone had their food except for my daughter. She had ordered nachos and waited about 5 minutes after all other food was on the table. I told the waitress and she said "I know..its coming". Not apologetic, and a little put out. It was bean/cheese nachos? She also spilled a glass of water in to a friends purse. Accidents happen, but it just added to the "bad vibe" if you will. Kids went up to get scoops of ice cream. It is the slowest process ever! I guess the ice cream is a bit hard so scooping is a chore. Lastly, the cover bands are always great. Sometimes, a little loud, making conversation difficult, but at least they sound good!

Made reservations, showed up and was told reservations would not be honored because it was Cinco de Mayo. Told by a manager we would have to wait 2 hours. Very disappointed.

We had 8 in our group. 4 of the 8 thought the food was not up to par with what we were used to in the past or expected for certain items.

Made to feel at home from the minute you enter until the time you leave. Wait staff extremely attentive and explains the different types of salsa and their spiciness. Quick to take your drink and appetizer order. Bartenders are prompt in making your drinks. All staff are very friendly and you are made to feel like you have been a customer for ever.

I wish I could give this place 100 stars! From the valet and the hostesses at the entrance, to our waiter and the food, to the manager, Robert; we were greeted and treated and dined like celebrities. I will go here again and again, and have already bragged about this place to my neighbors and friends!
