My server did not ask me my taco choices but put down Asada and the taco lady made two of them right away before I had a chance to choose my own. Still, our dinner was a lot of fun, and we liked the food. The steak tacos are awful because gristle is included.

The entrees were good, the deep-fried ice cream and carmelo cheesecake desserts were exceptional.

Made a reservation a couple of hours before going in. Upon arrival, the hostess denied the existence of our reservation without even checking. Second hostess checked and confirmed after showing them the confirmation email but they still refused to give us a table and said there was over an hour wait. We were there to give them another chance after our very disappointing previous visit. Been going here for the past 20+ years but I think last night was the last time.

Extremely poor service with untrained and rude reception hostesses.

I went for Mother's Day Sunday Brunch, and the food was mediocre at best. All of the dishes were cold and bland, and the rice pudding was watery, which I have never seen. The service was slow, considering it was a buffet brunch, and the tables were dirty. This was the first and last time I will be visiting this establishment.

Great staff. Needed music outside to offset white traffic noise .
Food was quite salty. Good portions. Focus menu on healthy quality less salt would make this place unique

Came Cinco de Mayo. Had reservations for 8:45, but was after 45 minutes of waiting after reservation time that the wife found a table on her own. Place had questionable COVID procedures that night with poor crowd management.

Cinco the Mayo reservation for 6:45pm the wait was more then hour even if you had reservation. We where not seated until 8pm. Spent most of our time waiting outside. They had a DJ playing music. That made the wait easier.

I went for a bday/engagement brunch for four people. Fernando was our informative and attentive server who made sure all our needs were met. We enjoyed our food and wine, but we do think that the mimosas should have less orange juice.

The reservation made it easy to walk in and be seating quickly. As far as covid protocols, this restaurant did a great job. They had hand sanitizer readily available, the tables were spread out, with plenty of space between them. The staff all had masks and face shields on. The service was fast and accurate and the staff are very cordial. We will definitely be back.
