The BEST in KC! 8/4/2010

I am 26 and have been eating here all my life. My mom and dad went when they were kids and both know the woman on the menu. Yes, it's cheap (grease all over everything!). Yes, it's dirty. Yes, the service can be crappy. But it is, without a doubt, THE BEST Mexican food in Kansas City. Here's my advice - order whatever you want, then ask for them to pour cheese sauce ALL OVER EVERYTHING. If they sold it in stores I would drink it out of the jar. Gluttony is your friend here. Enjoy. more

Best Mexican food in KC 6/25/2010

I've been eating here for over 30 years and have never been disappointed. It is always a treat to sit down to a basket of the best chips in the city. They haven't been sitting in the warming drawer, but are fresh out of the fryer and then to your table. When you bite into that first chip with warm (not cold) salsa, your taste buds simply say ""thank you"". The food has been consistent over the decades with the best taco sauce I have ever eaten. It is made fresh every day in the their kitchen, not from a chain commissary. The sauce tastes almost like a relish with a sweet taste and is simply incredible on their tacos or spooned over the rice. Ask for a small bowl of it on the side, since you will want more - MMMMM The quality has been great and none of the recipes have changed in the 30 years I've eaten there. The servers are great because they're proud of the quality food they serve. If you want a break from Johnson County average Mexican food, then drive downtown. While down there, drive around and marvel at the improvements in downtown and the city market. Enjoy. Pros: Old original family Recipes, quality, fresh and hot Cons: Busy on weekends, but that's a good thing more

Horrible Service 6/12/2010

this place provides bad food with horrible service, my server took our order and never came back, this place has the classic uneven tiny tables that rock back and forth and horrible service. The people that run this place are just plain RUDE, 30 years of what?.......your better off with a burrito from Quick Trip it won't cost you $8.00 and the employees wont treat you like crap. Please KC understand this is not real Mexican food, it's Tex-Mex slop covered with bad cheese ,this place SUCKS!!!!! By the way I think that the Los Corrals people are putting in there own reviews to help boost their ratings, something fishy is going on!!!!!!! Pros: Chips Cons: Rude management, bad service, below average food more

Friendly, cozy, very reasonable, great food 1/15/2010

I remember my parents taking us here in the sixties! Very cool place, friendly atmosphere, consistently good food. We just love it and enjoy the weekly specials. For us, Los Corrals is a tradition and a home away from home. Hope you greatly enjoy! Pros: A tradition, a place you will want to come back to often. Cons: Friday night, come early. more

Great place if you want crappy food 12/30/2009

\r This place is horrible. First, of all they have never heard of the concept first come first served. B/c they continuously seat people that come in after you before you have a seat. Funny how other restaurants seat people in order. Hmmmm......there is a thought!\r \r Their food brings an entire new meaning to the word nasty. I am not sure how this place has been in business for 60 years. I know it isn't b/c of the awesome personality of the lady working at the register. She is rude and clearly shouldn't work with customers. I would not recommend anyone eat at Los Craprrals. KC has several good Mexican restaurants on the boulevard. Take my advice and just drive a little further. Or go to your local Taco Bell. Trust me it will be 100% better! Pros: Not one Cons: Crappy food, horrible service. more



Amazing food and fantastic service for over 60 years! 11/29/2008

I have been eating at this restaurant for the last 35 years and the food is just as terrific today as it was then! The service is great, people are so friendly, the chips & salsa are both served warm (the way they should be) and the restaurant is very authentic! The closest mexican food that I have found to this wonderful restaurant is in San Antonio (but Los Corrals is even better!). Give it a try and I recommend the pork and bean burritos! Pros: The food is amazing and such fast service! Meal was served in 7 minutes! Cons: The chairs are rather small. more

Great food,bad service, awful managment 8/25/2008

I would normally highly recommend this place because the food is excellent. But the service has always been horrible. Always. But yesterday we had a party of 5 along with a toddler. We ordered a childs plate but got and were charged for an adult plate. There was also an additional $17 dollars on the bill that we could not account for. They said it was for steak burrittos however the bill already had that on it. So when we went to pay we argued the point. They insisted they were right. They did agree that with us that their service was awful. It is very unfortunate that they lose a long time customer. I could put up with bad service for great food. I can't put up with being cheated out of money. So, they won the round yesterday. I won the round this time. Pros: thumbs up on quality and taste of the food. Cons: poor service. not enough help more

Worst Mexican food I have ever had 5/29/2008

The food is horrible. I was sick for two days after I ate there. The server had no personality what so ever. And the guy that took my money at the register was downright rude. I felt like they try to rush you in and out like a herd of cattle. more

Absolutely Fantastic!! 4/4/2008

I am 26 years old & I have been eating at Los Corrals my whole life. This is no exaggeration. My parents have been eating there since the mid-70's when they were first dating, & we have continued to eat there ever since. I am a creature of habit. I always get the Chicken Burrito Spread (all chicken, with lettuce) & a Tostada w/ extra cheese. My husband is a little less predictible. Huevos Rancheros, Enchilada Rancheros, Nana special, #1 combo, he'll try anything. :) This is the restaruant that I compare all other Mexican restaraunts to. I hate Mexican places that pour nacho cheese over your burritos, or add a side of sour cream to everything. The chips are great, always hot (too hot sometimes) & super fresh & the salsa doesn't taste like ice cold ketchup (like too many other mexican-ish restaraunts). This is hands down the best place to eat in all of Kansas City. 10 STARS!! A+++ Customer for life (was a customer before life too!) Enjoy & try not to over eat! :) Pros: Cheap Prices Great Food Cons: Weekends super busy, No more free parking more

Los Corrals is the best place on this God forsaken earth. 12/16/2007

Look, before I tried Los Corrals, I was on the verge of committing suicide. Then my friends caught wind of my despair and came over to stop me. They took me out for a nice Chicken Burrito Spread, (no beans)... hold the lettuce. Los Corrals saved my life.\r \r \r In all seriousness, I love this place, you see the same friendly faces, and the chips are sent from heaven. They are always super quick, the food is consistently great, and I will continue to take my friends. Its the best food in KC, I don't care about authenticity, its just good. If you're a cheap as$, take a date, they will think you are cool because you took them somewhere besides the F!@#$%G Cheesecake Factory... and you'll be sitting pretty because you'll pay like 17 bucks for some queso and two burrito spreads. You're an idiot if you don't go here, And to the choads below who threw out a bad review. Shut up, you're retarded and you were probably a pr!ck, that's why you got sh!tty service. Karma M!@#$%^&*(*S\r \r And another thing, the bathrooms here, definantly dont smell like sh@&t (but dont quote me on that one) not to mention the paintings are off the chain, i mean seriously...they play all my favorite mexican jams including...\r \r 1. put yourr beef in the tacoo\r 2. i lost my pep pep\r 3. chalupa chalupa..ketttleee.\r 4. farrrge.\r 5. brain.\r 6. olllllllddd.\r 7. rim.\r \r soo there ya have it.. pack up the kids,smoke a mini bowl, and grab some los corrals... Pros: Perfect food. Perfect service. Cons: They don't play episodes of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job. more

Awesome Food, relaxed atmosphere 9/11/2007

I haven't eaten there in a few year but was searching the web for them and wanted to post. They have the best mexican food in KC. Prices are reasonable as hell and the food is fantastic. When they are busy, they are busy, this is not Taco Bell, so it might take awhile. The first time I ate there was a Friday night and of course they were packed. When we were seated the server was prompt, but we were not ready to order given the killer menu selections so we asked for some time. The server was honest and told us that given how busy they were, it might take him 20 mins to get back to us BUT, see that guy, he'll keep you full of beer, and see that guy, he'll make sure you have plenty of chips and salsa and I'll send them right over. As it worked out we needed the time anyway, they kept us full of beer and chips as promised and brought out the best food you could imagine, and the food came out in a resonable time once we got our order put in. If you want a relaxed back time and excellent food in a non-stuffy atmosphere, definately go.\r \r Regarding the comment by Piedra79 - ""First off...I don't understand how any self respecting Mexican restaurant can misspell its title."" The veracity of this comment should be considered; the family that owns the place is named Corrals......I'm guessing they know how to spell their own name. How did I find this out, just did a little research into the place is all? I want to make it clear, I don't know the people, I have no interest in the place or anything; I just don't like seeing good hard working people and/or businesses berated for no valid reason. If you don't like the food, cool - your opinion, but the name calling (no pun intended) or personal attacks indicate a lack of maturity and fairness. Pros: The best food, great prices, relaxed. Cons: Don't go if you are in a hurry on a Friday, just relax and have a good time. more

Fast service, great food!!! 9/7/2006

I definitely recommend Los Corrals!!!! Prompt service, hot food including the chips and salsa and \r definitely a laidback atmosphere!!! Also, very very reasonable pricing!! :-) Pros: Burrito spreads...YUM!! Cons: PARKING and the tables could be a little bigger!!!! more

The BEST! 8/29/2006

Oh my...this is by far my MOST favorite place to eat. My Family has been going here for atleast 30 years! I now live almost 2 Hours away and will make a KC day just to eat here! I always order a Pork Burrito Spread and Hard Taco. But, I could even just have a meal of their chips and salsa! I can not stand going to a ""Authentic"" place that serve chips that are not even hot, not to mention go to some of those so called chain places that claim to have good mexican food! \r \r Los Corrals is a MUST....their prices are GREAT too! Pros: ALL FOOD, Price, Chips and Salsa Cons: Sometimes have to wait more

I don't understand how people think that this is authentic.. 8/11/2006

I went to this place because it is really close to where I live. It was marginal at best as far as Mexican food goes. First off...I don't understand how any self respecting Mexican restaurant can misspell its title. It should be spelled Los Corrales. Other than that is just seemed to be a typical tex-mex, cheese drenched, greasy spoon. It shouldn't ever be in the top ten. more

Overated!!! 4/30/2006

I tried this place because it received high reviews. I could not have been more dissapointed! I ordered 2 enchiladas that were served ice cold, the cheese was not even melted. My wife ordered huevos rancheros that came out with a pork chili sauce (not stated on the menu). My wife does not eat pork so I sent the dish back, the waitress returned the same dish back and just scraped the pork off the eggs. We shared our concern with managment to hope this would not happen to future customers, but it was no use we were brushed of as a if we did not matter. There are too many other mexican places that appreciate my business. With service like this, it will not be long until their loyal customers turn. Cons: Bad Service, Cold Food more

The absolute BEST 7/22/2005

I can remember coming to Los Corales with my family since I was a small child - the food is always fresh and hot and FAST. Pork Burrito Spread with Cheese is amazing and their hard shell taco's are outstanding! I've never ordered anything I didn't like. I no longer live in KC but when I'm home, its a must have before leaving! Pros: Food, Value, Chips & sauce Cons: parking more

Los Corrals 7/5/2004

Los Corrals is THE best place to go for authentic mexican food. My family has been eating there for over 30 years. We have tried just about every mexican restaurant in KC, and this is far superior to any of them. Their staff is great and tho you may have to wait a bit to get seated on the weekends, it is worth it. The sauce is hot as are the chips when you get them. The taste is wonderful. This place gets a A+++ from me. Always! Pros: service, food, price more

los corrals 1/27/2004

best mexican food I've ever eaten. also priced less than others. Only place I can find that serves sauce warm and has the best chips. Pros: sauce served warm, unique flavor meat, inexpensive Cons: parking more
