The food is normally great. But this time around the order was completely and totally messed up which usually would be OK we would just eat it and forget about it except for they have the orders completely and totally mixed up.and except for everything was wrong. Then when we received it back corrected it was obvious we had ticked off whoever had to re-prepare the food! Normally a good experience but this time was horrible. And they weren’t very busy

Unfortunately the service at this Puesto is never great. I've been to the HB and Anaheim locations multiple times and had great service, but Park Place service seems to struggle whenever we do a work lunch here during the week. We are typically forgotten about, never get drink refills, and food always takes a very long time - even if we are one of the few parties inside.

Unfortunately this most recent visit we didn't get drink refills, one of us didn't get our beverage until after our entrees came out, and one of our entrees was forgotten and brought out 10+ minutes after. We also barely saw our server, who after he dropped off appetizers wasn't seen again until he brought the 10 minute late entree. No drink refills or check ins. Just disappointing, especially considering this isn't exactly an inexpensive place to eat.

We like the convenience of this restaurant but 3 times with bad service now seems to be too much.

I’ve been to this Puesto location many times and have always had a good experience with the food. However, most recently the tacos we ordered seemed a bit off. The carnitas/barbacoa was burnt to a crisp and it was very dry - my friends and I weren’t able to finish the tacos. My previous experience was that the tacos were full of flavor, juicy, and the meat was tender so this was unexpected. The cheese on the tacos were once my favorite, but for some reason this past time the cheese was almost plastic like and hard in texture.

This is the second time. I tried this place
Terrible , how weird a lot of people There
1. Margarita drink taste chemical not even close to be the real thing , my wife snd I did my dink it . I remember as bad as the first time or worse
2. The taco we retuned the first order was cold and smell bad and the sauce on top tasted terrible
2. They made a new one the meat was great but everything else on the taco was bad the tortilla taste bad they put a terrible cheese
The server was so nice
But the food nothing close to be Mexican
I went there a year ago it was terrible and I tried it again
It is worse
How stupid people could be to be there
One of the worst restaurant I have been in
It’s me fault I should not have came back and I will not
Every penny I spent was like throwing my money in trash
Not cheap
