    RJ Mexican Cuisine is a hidden gem in the West End. The food is great and the drinks are fantastic. We were waited on by Pedro who gave us the perfect amount of service. I’ve been there multiple times and never disappointed.

    On a Monday night we arrived early for our reservation, about 30 minutes because we wanted to catch happy hour. Only 2 other tables in the restaurant were busy. And our party was larger than the original 8. The staff was very rude and upset that we arrived early and made us wait for 10 -15 minutes before anyone came to bring us water or take our beverage order, there were more employees than customers but no one would pay attention to us. The happy hour margarita drinks are very watered down and not worth it. The website said happy hour ended at 6 yet the waiter argued with us that it ended at 4. The food was good not great but service was not good.

    While the food was pretty good, the service was not. The restaurant was nearly empty for a dinner service on a Saturday night but it still took about 20 minutes from when we were seated for someone to come to our table. It took an additional 20 minutes for us to receive a glass of water. If the service would have been better I would have had a completely different review. I would not eat here again.

    Early cinco de mayo. Husband got the beef rib. I got the enchilada. Everything was seasoned well and cooked perfectly. My husband saved room and boxed his rib or what was left. We were so sad we left it and didn’t take back to hotel.

    Just overall blah. The queso was gritty. The chips tasted like they were out of a bag and the cheese enchiladas were heavy and flavorless.

    Food was terrible. Quality and presentation were both underwhelming. Guacamole, basic fare in a Mexican restaurant, was sub-par. Service was good and sincere but out waiter could not explain the basics of certain dishes.

    It’s was great and good service in the beginning our server looked annoyed by everything and was not attending us Saw her maybe about 2 times and when we got our checks but she was quick to take our food when some of us weren’t even done. I don’t know why she was rushing us. Also she was quick to take the checks once we paid. Not sure if she was having a bad day but no smiles from her no good service so we left a small tip which I felt bad but why would I tip good for terrible service.

    Portions were small the salmon was dry and warm. The drinks were good but for the amount of money I spent for the service. I will not be back. And the salsa was good but not everyone can eat hot and spicy.

    The food itself was good. The atmosphere As well was perfect for dinner. The staff seemed to be a little confused on their own menu. Our waiter was really attentive until she got another table then she was absent and another waitress helped us finish and get out of there. A few details were missed through the dinner and had they been met our experience would have been much better.

    Food was presented well and tasted great as always. However, service was lacking this time. It seemed they had plenty of servers working the floor but our server just seemed to be wondering around visiting and didn’t come back to our table for over 30 minutes after we got our plates. We had to eventually go to the bar to get service. We visit this place every time we’re in town and will likely go back.

    The restaurant declined to seat us outside, as reserved, stating they would close the patio at 7 pm. They didn't honor that: there were still many people out on the patio after 7 pm. Then, it took too long to place our orders, receive our orders, and follow up on our orders. I was disappointed in this visit. The restaurant was NOT crowded...no excuse.

    The reviews of this restaurant were great and we were excited to try it. Unfortunately, we were a little disappointed. The chips were stale, the queso was cold and clumpy, and they do charge for salsa. The food was not bad but was also not great. I had the tilapia and found it bland. My husband ordered fajitas and found them to be “just okay.” Serving sizes were large, which was great! We did also have water refilled from the pitcher, which turned out to be Sprite. The restaurant itself was very clean and had a great ambiance and a great location. It is possible that they were just having a bad night but they were not busy at all, though sometimes the food is best when a restaurant is busy! We wanted to love this place but unfortunately it was a miss for us.

    Server was so sweet, but the pace was slow, almost 2.5 hours. First round of drinks took 25 minutes. Food was fine, nothing bad to say there. They said they were able to split checks, but after 3 tries we just had someone put their card down and get an itemized receipt. All was fine until there were 4 extra entrees and 4 extra cocktails (2 of which were Don Julio 1942 shots, not cheap) were added to the ticket, almost an extra $110. Called and awaiting response on a refund for the extras. Update: The refund process did not go well. After 4 phone calls, we were offered a $40 refund for over $110 worth of items we did not receive. Rating adjusted.

    We waited 5mins before even being acknowledged, another 5 for the “hostess” to figure out where to seat us even tho the restaurant was no where near full. Table was dirty, waitress came to take order. Didn’t have a good sense of the menu, water came out in dirty cups. After the waitress took our order 2 other waiters came to try and take our order again. Everyone seemed new, service was terrible, food was nasty. Asked for an extra plate to split some food and the plate came out dirty. Maybe they need to shut down and actually train staff or find new management. Brought visiting fam here and it was a complete miss, will never dine here again.
