I requested a table away from drafts. They had no notes about that. Food was not spicy and we don't eat really spicy food. Chicken tamal I ordered had two pieces of chicken in it. needed more sauce. Not made in traditional manner, but in a pan and cut into servings. husbands enchilada just ok, needed more sauce. They could do a lot more to make their food interesting and flavorful. We won't return. Server was pleasant.
The service and food quality has always been consistently good. Most of the servers already know us there and we do appreciate that they are still there. Not a high turn over in this restaurant which indicates good management.
Lunch for five, all good, plenty to eat, generous salads; attentive but not hovering, service. :) Pleasant outdoor seating on patio, with overhead canvas, welcome in the hot weather. Enjoyed by all of us.
Party platters were perfect for our party of 30 for my cousin's 40th birthday party. Delicious margarita and beer! Servers are friendly and helpful and there to accommodate our needs. Will definitely be back!
When you get tired of tiny plates of unrecognizable food, get over to the Red Hen for a pitcher of margs and some delicious Mexican classics. We really enjoyed the mole enchiladas and the chimichanga on the loud and busy patio. We left full and happy!
