I used to love this place. Great food reasonable prices and fun atmosphere for what it was. Also had an awesome salsa bar with many different and yummy salsa, I know they redid the place a couple of years ago.
We went and checked it out finally. It looked the same pretty much with different tables, the salsa bar gone and the order counter gone. It was now a "sit down". Ok so it still was in a dumpy garage but trying to be fancy. The menu has way fewer items on it and no tacos or anything like that - at a Mexican restaurant? Odd.
The service was slow even though there were only a few tables occupied. Got a small bowl of chips and were asked what type of salsa we wanted. We had the medium and it was awful. It was slimy as if it was one of those bottled ones, not freshly made like they used to have. The chips were not nice freshly made like they used to be there were out of a bag. Only a few were whole on top and then all the others were crushed and broken until the bottom third that was all crumbs.
The burrito was good and had nothing "weird" in it my partner said. It was very large but at $12 it really only contained inexpensive ingredients and came with nothing else. I think this one used to be about $8. The fajitas were massively overpriced at $14. There were 4 very small tortillas, some food service premade shredded cheese, a pile of cheap iceberg lettuce that was cut way too thick, a thimble of salsa and a steaming pan of about 5 burnt onion slices and exactly 6 small shrimp, NOT prawns as advertised. There was aslo nothing else, no beans, rice or even guacamole. This is a COMPLETE rip off - do not order. The other REALLY poor value was the kids meal. $6.50 for a 2 VERY small tortillas with a little cheese, a juice box and a freezie(a NO NAME one from the Superstore no less so you can imagine how much that cost them). I was STUNNED when you compare that to say Whitespot or somewhere where they woulc have got a chocolate milk, full size grill cheese, fries and a and ice cream sundae for less.
The other kid had a bean burrito which he said was cold mostly and was SUPER boring mostly lettuce. Two nasty plastic cups of pop rang in at $5.50. So for over $50 PLUS a tip now it was a sit down and NO alchol I felt totally ripped off. the ingredients we had cost way less thatn $5, If this was authentic or different mexican in anyway maybe but it's cheap food made from cheap ingredients. Spend $50 at a good restautant and buy all these inexpesive things at Walmart and make the same at home.
