More often than not, I would prefer to have a great meal than great service. If you choose this location for your next meal that is, more likely than not, what you will receive. The food is brilliant! By far my favorite mexican food within 100 miles of Santa Maria. This restaurant has received the Best Chips and Salsa award several times from the Central Coast Sun, and they are well deserved. Perfect salsa and even more perfect chips.
The only problem with this wonderful food is that the people who serve it to you are not always the best quality servers. There have been several occasions where I have requested a condiment or refill on my drink without a response for several minutes. I have also asked for my food a certain way (ex: without tomatoes) and had it brought to me in a way other that I requested. However, the people are always friendly. To me, good food and friendly people are sometimes worth bad service.
