Typical Mexican restaurant. Typical dishes. Staff is friendly. I come here at least 3 times per year. I will come back for some Mexican family dinner night.

Just an average Mexican place, not somewhere I would return to or recommend. Service was slow. Chips and salsa was really good. Nacho were different, they had potatoes.

The chips and salsa were great! The chips were hot and crunchy and all of the salsas were good. The Chili Rellenos were ok. The rice and beans were good and tasted freshly made. The enchiladas and tacos were really good.

Just had lunch at Ay Caramba and were very disappointed. This place used to serve really good food, but it seems those days are gone. Food is not hot, tastes bland and/or greasy. We arrived at 11:30, pre-lunch rush, and there were maybe 4 other tables with patrons. The service was alright, if a bit slow given the number of... More
