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.

The food was good, but the service was horrible. We were forgotten about a bunch of time, beer was brought warm as if it was sitting on the counter for a while and they poured it in a cold glass to give the illusion it was cold, our server came back 4 times to ask me what I ordered because she couldn’t remember and when my food came out it was still wrong. The restaurant is soooo loud, we had to keep repeating ourselves across the table so the others could hear us. Kind of disappointed.

Our meal was great! I ordered the brisket taco & loved it! My friends split the seafood enchilada & could not stop talking about how yummy it was. The service was great, & it was really well priced! Not my first time there & definitely won’t be my last!

Overall yes. The food and drinks were good. The service was slow and they were not good with checking in on you for drink refills, chip refills, etc. The atmosphere is loud so it is hard to have a conversation with someone.

Food was just okay. Not great, but i expect fajitas to come out sizzling. The chicken fajiltas tasted like they were run through the oven. Everything was pretty expensive, too. $40 for a not so great meal. Probably will not go back.

Back to back same experience so what I thought was a fluke the first time I’ve now decided is the norm. Margaritas were the only 4 star item we ordered. Appetizer we got the 1492 quest and guacamole. The quest was not even warm, quite cold like it had been sitting out for quite a while. The guacamole was just ok, not awful but not worth eating either.
3 of us ordered fajitas and all were awful. Shrimp was dry and cold and the chicken and beef meat was again cold.
Our waitress also kept mixing up tables with drinks and food and we were not impressed. We all left and said that was the last time we everyone to 1492. Used to be a favorite but not anymore.

The food is excellent, unfortunately the service was poor. Drinks were forgotten, poured sloppy and incorrectly. Our meal took well over 2 hrs to get. We have been here numerous times, having the same server. I feel service is inconsistent.

Maybe I ordered poorly. My companions enjoyed their food although the black beans were cold. I had the duck tacos and they were flavorless. The queso fundido appetizer was delicious, and the mid-town people watching through the front windows was enjoyable. We’ll try it again.

It was a cold evening and we had to keep our jackets on because there was not enough heat on/ front door opening so it wasn't quite as cozy as it normally is. The heat seemed to be turned up as we were leaving. Staff is very efficient and nice.

Well it was our first time there, a friend recommended.. it was very loud I couldn’t hardly hear my husband and the waitress had to question everything we ordered like she didn’t remember.. she got my drink wrong 3 times. I had the pork carnitas and they came out on steamed taco shells and the minute I picked them up to eat they all fell apart so I had to eat with a fork. I think the white Queso and chips was the best thing we ate.

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 . . .

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.

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.
