I've never wanted to leave a review before, but eating at La Familia last night has compelled me to. It definitely ranks as one of the worst Mexican food restaurants I've ever eaten ate, based on food alone. Although I've never eaten at Panchos before, I can only imagine La Familia being one tiny step above them in quality - but at least you get a buffet at Panchos !
O.K., enough ranting...let me get into specifics: 1) All the food on my plate tasted very pre-salted (enchiladas, rice, beans, sauce) 2) All of the food I received seemed less than fresh and more like something that was scooped out of a cafeteria 3) Spent $10-$15 for this sub-par food (don't know the exact cost, because I didn't pay) 4) My ice-tea had a distinct tap water after taste 5) Waitress was very nice, but asked if she could take our plate literally every 3-5 mins (interrupting any discussion we were having - quite annoying) 6) They offer no deserts 7) The waiters sneak up on ""Birthday"" people with a super loud ""HEY!!"" - although I think this was unique, I guess this combined with the 3-5 min waiter interruptions were made for a lot of chaos.
I hope this review helps someone.
