Seriously! Did we really need to ask 4 times for more water? And it was not even busy at the time.

Great authentic food! However, service was extremely slow considering the place was almost empty at 5pm on Sunday. There were maybe 4 other tables.
I would definately go back again. I have hope for faster service.

Secund time I've been here. Food is consistent and very good. Wasnt offered chips and salsa this time which was disappointing although I could have asked.
No complaints. Good place for meeting friends and chatting.

Had been meaning to come here for quite awhile. Finally got here and wish we had come sooner. Frozen Mango Margarita was great! Had the garlic red snapper and was probably the best red snapper I ever age. Totally enjoyed it; just sorry I split it with my wife ;-) We also split the duck tacos and they were also very good. Will definitely come back here!

Was at the art fair, came across your booth. You didn't accept credit cards so we went straight to your restaurant. We loved everything! Clean, convenient, excellent service, the food was outstanding from the chips and salsa to our entrees. Everything tasted so fresh. Can't wait to return.

As always, attentive service and wonderful food. Their chili reanos are the best that we've ever had -- our order every visit. Tequila choices are plentiful, as are their margaritas (which can be expensive depending upon your choice). In all, a great place to visit with family and friends.

I had heard about this restaurant for ages, and I wish I had gone a long time ago! We went on a summer Saturday evening, and we were so impressed by the friendly service, the bottomless chips and salsa (so good!), the delicious specials, and the extensive menu. One of the owners heard that it was our first visit and came over to greet us -- very impressive! My blackened ahi tuna tacos were perfectly rare, my sister's plaintains were perfectly carmelized, our fried ice cream was the best I've ever had. We will be back soon!

The food was good. The service was good. The atmosphere and decor was what you'd expect for a Mexican restaurant. Except I was looking for a little bit more. Maybe more (or any) of a fusion menu. Given the owners' ethnicities there could be some very interesting dishes.

There are plenty of restaurants around that feature a Mexican cuisine; some better, some worse. There was nothing about Isaac & Moishe that would compel me to come back unless I happened to be in the area.

We found this restaurant to be average overall. The margaritas were expensive for a middle-of-the-road suburban restaurant, and they weren't anything special. The menu is very large--they might benefit from cutting it back somewhat and focusing on making some outstanding dishes. I had salmon tacos, which were good, but contained a very small amount of salmon. The kitchen forgot to bring my rice and beans and I had to point that out to our server. My husband had enchiladas, which were fine--nothing special. The dining room is nicely painted but looks a little weathered. We struggle to find great Mexican food in the suburbs. We probably will not come back to this restaurant.

The food was very fresh and tasty. Finally a restaurant that is scrumptious and still a good value. The waitress was very "smiley" and funny and helpful.
We had a good time and were full when we left. We'll go again.
