The food is served a few minutes after you are seated which tells you that the food is not fresh. If the food were fresh, you would have to wait for it to be cooked. The service is unfriendly. I asked for a drink refill and the served looked angry and he brought me another drink with my used straw... More

This used to be a good place for Mexican food - used to be. Yuck!!! We ordered lunch beef quesadillas & got a plate with a hard taco, an enchilada & a burrito - no beans or rice. The waiter made no effort to correct the order & since the food already looked like dog food, we didn't want to... More

The food was your typical mexican food. The nachos were pretty good, but the beer we ordered came without the caps and tasted very watered down, which makes me distrust their sanitation methods.

We visited this restaurant at the recommendation of friends. My drink order was not accurate but it was fixed with a little extra explaining. Just a minor language barrier. The food was fresh and hot. The decor was average and the price was fair.

I went to this place on the recommendation of friends,and the fact that we love the Godfrey location. I'm sorry we went here. When we arrived everything was fine until the food arrived. It was AWEFUL! The food had ZERO seasoning, and the meat tasted as if it had been boiled rather than grilled. It was TERRIBLE. The beef had... More
