Editorial review from GrubHub 12/20/2013

They've screwed up two orders. I asked for no sauce on my spaghetti and meatballs and it was swimming in so much sauce that it spilled out on the table when I opened the container. The second time, I threw it in the garbage rather than eat the disgusting soggy mess. Horrible. more

Editorial review from GrubHub 11/16/2013

The order was late and incorrect, the food was cold and didn't taste good and the few bites we took from our order made us ill. That being said they issued a full refund so at least I am not being charged for this overpriced mess. more

Three stars for food, one star for service. Took over an hour after the estimated delivery time with no notification that it was going to be late. They're lucky they're one of the few places near me that deliver all night. more

When I first started ordering from here I ALWAYS got my food cold, but I only order this place LATE NIGHT when I go out with friends and etc...but lately even the 3 am orders have been coming hot and food has been good too! I give 5 stars they have been stepping up lately...and I live almost 5 miles away from them and order always get there early! more

If I could give zero stars, I would. I ordered breakfast this morning at 5am, and it was supposed to be delivered at 6:20-ish. That's fine. 6:15 rolls around and my cellphone receives a phone call: caller "Hey i'm here." me, "Delivery guy?" caller, "yeah." me, "Just dial 001 at the call box so I can let you in." caller, "ok" He calls but the box hangs up because he is constantly pressing the numbers.... which makes the box re-dial the number and hang up. He proceeds to do this multiple times. Eventually we call his boss because he's violently screaming into the phone in spanish with pinche, puto, etc. All the spanish cursewords and insults.... No thanks! I don't want a thug delivering my food. more

Love their tostadas more

The name says it all. 12/5/2010

I didn't understand why an Italian restaurant would have a spanish name, but when I got the the takeout menu on my door I didn't hold it against them. I was wrong. I ordered a italian classic, spaghetti and meatballs. After placing my order, I was told (only because I asked) that it was going to be an hour before I got my food. Although the delivery guy was nice and it came 15 minutes early, the food was terrible. The salad was bland, it tasted as though there wasn't dressing on it, and who puts pickles on a salad?.. Garlic bread, flavor wasn't half bad, but nothing super awesome either.... spaghetti and meatballs- 3 meatballs with ZERO flavor, tasted like nothing- no garlic italian seasoning nothing- just meat. Second- I asked for extra sauce, I said it 3 times, the dish was not saucy, there were entire sections that were the color of pasta because there wasn't sauce on it. I make amazing spaghetti and meatballs, its not a really hard dish... This coming from an IRISH girl. Don't waste ur time or money on this place. more

DO NOT order takeout from here!!!!! 11/23/2010

Wish I could give them zero stars. This was our first, and last, time ordering from them.\r First mistake: ordered in advance using the feature on their menu page.\r Second mistake: Requested no napkins and no plasticware in their special instructions box. Also used the box to remind them that we wanted delivery at 6pm (this was 4:15pm)\r Third mistake: emailing the ""owner"" via his provided email address found above. \r Results: dude shows up with food at 5:19pm. Gave me a stack of napkins, six plastic forks, and two bags of COLD food. \r Called the store. Could not get a simple apology or explantion. Emailed the owner; still waiting nearly 24 hours later.\r This was my experience. more

Forget it - gone to rock bottom. 3/13/2009

Horrible. For years, we used to love this place - ordered once every couple of weeks, if not more often. \r \r Don't know what happened, but they have gone straight to the bottom. Where to start? \r \r Was it the staples (yes, I said staples, as in the metal things) in two entrees a month or so ago? (I called, variation on ""sorry,"" as below, and that's it.)\r \r Was it the barbacoa, riddled with tiny shards of broken bone, nearly bringing me to seriously chip several teeth on my first bite, before I realized what was up, and chose to toss the meal rather than risk more? (I called - variation on ""sorry."")\r \r Or the messed up order every time we order from them, with sides missed, or our order misdelivered elsewhere/we got someone else's food? (""sorry."") \r \r Or bad food - hard as a brick, overcooked carne asada, or, stone cold food (must be on the end of the delivery route)? (""sorry"").\r \r Or the newest pleasure, getting charged a surcharge to use a credit card, without any news this way on any of their menus or on the website - just the order-taker saying ""sorry, bra', the owner charges now for using credit cards."" \r \r I don't know, and I guess I no longer care. Last night, we ordered for the last time. No staples, this time, just charged several $$ for sides not included, and when I called back, they said they don't offer those sides (jalapenos...jalapenos; chopped onions - crazy request, I know...)....out of morbid curiosity, I asked (1) any reason we were charged for them? (2) Any reason why the person who took my order said ""OK,"" instead of ""we don't offer those crazier-than-it-gets sides? His only explanation was again, ""sorry, bra."" This, followed up by the owner's new gift of a credit card surcharge. On a $28 order. \r \r Used to be, every other week - once or twice, twice a week. Now, staples, on-the-sly surcharges, screwed up orders, bad food. Uh, no thanks, ""'bra.' "" Pros: None. Stay away. Cons: Everything - see below more

We order from here all the time and they have been prompt and the food warm. Have had one bad experience out of dozens. Wouldn't order non-mexican food but I would recommend it for cheap grub on the fly. more

Truly delicious cuisine! I'd recommend trying one of the combo dinners - you get a taste of several different authentic Mexican dishes. The portions are large and the delivery was fast! more

Editorial review from GrubHub 8/15/2008

I got a New Strip, which was delicious. The vegetables had a yummy buttery cheese sauce which was also great. The food came faster than quoted and the delivery guy was nice. Only complaint: wish the salad had not been in the container with the steak. more
