After reading mixed reviews of this place I decided to see for myself if it was an adequate restaurant. I work in the area so it's always nice to find another place to go for lunch. So I went here on a Monday early afternoon, I was greeted and handed a menu for a to-go order. Service seemed acceptable, decor was mediocre, sort of a cluttery theme.. Nonetheless, I was there for the food. I ordered a chicken enchilada with refried beans and spanish rice. I also got a side of chips and salsa. The wait for brief, my food was ready in about 7 minutes, suspiciously fast for a special order. The food was slightly above room temperature, and tasted very cheap. The beans were thick and looked old. The spanish rice had an odd seasoning and tasted very far from authentic. The worst part of all was the cheap cheap cheap chicken that they claimed was breast meat was nothing more than spongy fatty cheap chicken pieces that looked like something you would find in a frozen dinner. I have had better chicken at Mcdonalds for $2.00. Inside of my enchilada was traces of olives....?? Not sure if this was a part of the ingredients or if they just somehow sneaked into my food, it sure wasn't on the description in the menu. Yuck! \r
It is absurd that this restaurant is actually charging restaurant prices for food that is so cheap. I paid $12.00 alone for my plate of food, not to mention the $3.00 extra for the stale chips and salsa. Who would actually eat here and then come back a second time? I don't see what would bring anyone back here unless they are very desperate for food. This place reminds me of the hole in the wall cheap 24 hour mexican restaurants you could find on 82nd Ave. But at least at those 24 hour places they charge appropriate prices for the low quality of food.. Outside of that, I will never return nor will I suggest this to any of my hotel guests that come to our downtown hotel.
Pros: Courteous Service
Cons: Everything else!!!
