Mexican
1492 Casady is the Chavez Brother's 2nd ventured to take Mexican and Latin American away from the usual panchos and sombreros on the wall and showcase more than enchiladas. 1492 offers a little bit from all of Latin America, from Venezuelan Pabellon to Cuban Puerco Criolla and back the famous Seafood Enchiladas and Traditional Tex-Mex. Enjoy a drink in the bar with one of their one and only Marcos Frozen Mojitos, or 1492 Swirl, even sit back and enjoy a glass from their extensive South American Wine list. The food, atmosphere, staff, and the overall restaurant experience truly embodies the combination of Latino Spirit and American Life.

Such good food!!! I had seafood enchiladas, my husband had a pulled pork dish, and my friend had an open face tamale. All three entrees were superb! We also shared a side of their coconut rice, which was perfection, and the house queso dish was also delicious! I would go back to this place just for the chips and salsa. It was honestly the best Mexican/Latin food we have eaten in a long time - fresh, delicious, and not your boring every day restaurant Mexican food. The only thing I would have changed was the noise level. It was so loud in the restaurant that it was difficult to have conversations with your table. Maybe that just means I am getting old . . .

Food was ok, not great. Waiter was very attentive. Restaurant is always super loud and if you have a party of two,your table is always by a door or the kitchen.

I took my girlfriend for Valentine's day and we were pretty disappointed. The service was pretty bad. I had to wave down the waiter everytime we needed anything because he didn't really check on us. We had a couple drinks and they were all really weak and not very good. The food was alright, my girlfriend's duck enchiladas were good but my seafood enchiladas where pretty bland and not very good. I don't think we will be back.

Lunch service at 1492 is great! I go often for business lunches. Dinner service is poor. Last night, it took a long time to get water, setups and our order taken. Our beers never came even though we asked our waiter a couple of times. I finally went to the bar and ordered them myself after our food was delivered. My husband’s order was wrong. Being seated next to the swinging doors of the kitchen was very distracting, as it appeared that perhaps the staff was having difficulty and talking loudly to each other. No apologies and we were charged for the beers.

The menu has changed since my last visit and not for the better. I took a suggestion from the waitress and had the pork shoulder. Bad choice! The other meal at the table was enchiladas and they were very greasy.

I have been to 1492 many times and sadly this was the first bad experience I’ve ever had. All of our food was cold, the rice was over cooked and mushy. We had the queso was cold too. I asked our waiter to heat it up and he did but not much. I’m hoping this message gets to management and they will solve these issues because I really like 1492.

This has been our special occasion restaurant for birthdays several times over the last few years. Tonight I was highly disappointed. We made a reservation for 7:00 and were not seated until 7:30. We were then seated at a table only partially set with plates and silverware. Our first two bowls of tortilla chips were half filled with crumbs. It took an extra long time to receive our food, which took a while for the server to bring out with three separate trips. My tacos were not even hot and the corn tortillas were hard like they had been sitting out. Chicken fajitas came out just as strips on a regular plate (not on a skillet)-maybe this is how they serve them now???

Four of us had dinner reservations. Three orders came out okay and one (chicken enchiladas) were cold in the interior and had to be sent back. Gave the appearance they were frozen and reheated. Problem was corrected in reasonable time. I did not pay the bill so I have no idea if there was any compensation for the cold food. No real apology that I could discern from staff.

My wife, son and I all ended up with stomach aches after our dinner. The food settled like bricks and caused nausea later on. And while we had made a reservation, we still had to wait about 30 mins before seating. Our server had to be reminded several times to bring us items we had asked for, including our drinks.

Always a treat to go to 1492. Our go to for Latin food. Service is always very attentive without being overbearing, and the food is always prepared abd presented in a way that makes us confident in ordering anything. This trip my wife had a trio of street tacos, and I had the duck enchiladas. All were excellent! And the way they infuse a touch a tropical fruit into everything sets their food apart. Go and enjoy!

The food was great but I’ll never go back. It was so loud in there I literally was yelling across the table at my fiancé and nobody seemed to care. Not to mention that a table of 22 that we’re waiting on their table literally surrounded us while we tried to enjoy NYE and our engagement. I was terribly disappointed.

The food was good, but there are other restaurants in the metro with similar food for a few bucks less. The menu isn't descriptive enough and doesn't include the little extras like a dish coming with guacamole or plantains. The main reason I deducted a star is because the restaurant is too crowded with seating and the wait was far too long. Thirty plus minutes to wait for lunch is not appropriate. I think the kitchen has a hard time keeping up with the front of the house.

This was my first and only time to dine at 1492 New World Latin. The service was disappointing as we had an uninvolved server. My order came out wrong and had to be taken back, when my order made it back to me the fish smelled foul and unappetizing.
It was so dark that I had to use the flashlight on my phone to read the menu.
For what I thought this establishment was supposed to be, my family left disappointed and wishing we had just gone across the street to Waffle Champion instead.

Had a great time visiting with our kids on fall break from college especially after the group of obscene talking business men left. Not the restaurant’s fault but made those around uncomfortable and very dispectful. However highly recommend this restaurant and have been many times and will continue to return.

We normally love this restaurant but this time not so much. Our waiter wasn’t filling drinks, not bringing correct drinks. Our steak fajitas were yummy as normal but our friends chicken fajitas were cold. My friend ordered no rice and veggies instead and she got rice. We never got the guacamole/sour cream/pico plate for our fajitas. Then there was a screaming baby behind us (I know it isn’t the restaurants fault). Then our bill charged us for an extra beer, one couple also got charged for an extra beer or two, and the other couple got charged for a sprite, no one at our table even had a sprite. After all this they double charged two of our credit cards
