We tried the place and had good food and good service but the setting seemed a bit odd? We would go back again and do recommend trying the place

Bad service to loyal customers including, being denied drink refills, spiking salsa with hot sauce, waiting over 15 minutes for waiter to take our order, being laughed at and intentionally ignored. Manager was rude and made light of the situation. Final straw was when manager pointed his finger and blamed the situation on us. We have always been very nice... More

Highly recommended by the motel next door. Met a couple that always stays at the Econolodge when they are in the area just to be close to Las Trancas - they often come in from Texas and said this is so much better than anything close to them. Waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and offered a few suggestions.... More

The place was very crowded, but the staff and service were up to the challenge. The menu is extensive with plenty of options. For the uninitiated there was helpful tips on the menu and the staff provided additional help. There were floor managers available to keep service moving. The food arrived in a timely manner, warm and tasty. The sangria... More

We were visiting friends this weekend and they suggested this place. I had the best ever Taco salad. Perfect home made taco shells. The chicken taco salad was perfectly seasoned and very fresh. My son enjoyed his dinner and felt it was the best ever as well. Nice atmosphere with room for larger groups,having a big family table was nice.

I got grande burrito a california-style burrito, it was very good. The greater who met us was very friendly and show us to a booth but we prefer a table and that was no problem to him so he set us at a table. After ordering in a few minutes our food was there.

Just stopped for lunch while traveling down I-77.... What a pleasant surprise waiting at Las Trancas! Their warm tortilla chips and fresh salsa were amazing. All our dishes were wonderful, served quickly and piping hot (except the fried ice cream of course)! Jennifer was on top of everything and an amazing hostess. My luncheon margaritas were large and very tasty.... More

Every time we go by this exit we have to stop. The atmosphere, the employees, and the food. Everything is always on point. Whenever we visit, the restaurant is always full. Good service and good food will do that. If you ever travel this stretch of interstate on 77, you must stop in and try it.
