WORST MEXICAN FOOD – This is the worst mexican food I've ever had. I've been there a few times over the course of the years, and each time I am disappointed and remember why it is I don't eat here. The salsa is runny and lacks flavor. The food is overpriced. The fajitas come out with basically whole vegetables that they hardly cook. You can have better food at Cinco de Mayo down the street. The one star is for the margaritas, which are decent.
awesome mexican food! – great place to dine if you like mexican cuisine! Fun atmosphere great margaritas! Will be back!
Not Recommending – 1. Forced vallet parking despite of space were ample available and no need to give the car key to vallet service driver. He followed up to inside the store and forcing the key which he did not need at all.
When i refused to give the key telling "you do not need my car key as I am not blocking anyone's car", he was cursing, antagonistic and chased up to inside the store and went back when store waiter told "it is ok if he in not blocking other car"
2. After spent about 3 hours in the restaurant, noticed the car was skewing on the way back home, and found in the Morning tire was COMPLETELY FLAT.
3. 4 peoples bill was about $120, excluding tax and added tip $14 for only 4 peoples which is more than $3.50 per person, paid total over $145, Waiter lied to other guest in Spanish "I did not pay the tip", so guest was delving bag for cash, so I confirmed "i added the tip on the bill", then he changed the word "you have to pay tip at least $20".
Good for Drinks, Bad for Food – This is a good place to go to to grab drinks w/the girls for a fun night out. They sometimes have mexican bands playing and karaoke nights which are really fun. Wouldn't recommend this place for a first date; its too loud. If your going there in hopes of having a good meal, go somewhere else. The food, well lets just say I could make better enchaliades and i don't cook. The food was bad, everything came out cold and it was so expensive!! This is a good place for drinks only.
Bad Service – I called to get some reservations for to nite, already I was here a few years ago (3) but the reviews that I read are real bad so I called and I ask if they have improved the service but the answered I received from the person that answer was very rude and not a propitiate, so if you go, be aware of this.
Mediocre food, expensive prices. – 14.50 for guacamole that contained one avocado. Entries were expensive, served lukewarm and the rice was dry and not fresh at all. Expensive for what it is and what it is is NOT worth the price. The waiter was indifferent although the bus boys and the guy who made the guacamole were very nice. I will never go there again.
Worst Mexican Food Ever! – The only good part of the experience were the free chips and salsa, those were very good. Because the entrees were so expensive $18-30 we skipped an appetizer. I ordered the vegetarian plate and my husband ordered a beef burrito. We were both quite unimpressed with the bland food we received. My meal tated like it was microwaved and the guacamole that came with it tasted like it was from out of a tub from a supermarket. It was darker green in color, was not at all fresh and had practically no flavor. My husband's beef burrito also tasted bland and microwaved. It was not crispy - just limp and lifeless. We left dissapointed and will stick to our favorite Mexican restaurant - Cinco de Mayo. from now on!!! That place has amazing guacamole and the prices are much lower but with fresher and authentic Mexican food. Don't wate your money at Tequila Sunrise. Yuck!
Too Expensive - not real Meixcan Food – We went there on Saturday night, arriving 10 minutes before our reservation. We were told it would be a few minutes and to please wait at the bar (no problem, time for a MARGARITA)!! Well, a few minutes turned into a 45 minute wait without so much as an "I'm sorry" from the hostess. We were finally seated, spent a small fortune at the bar, $100 for 4 people. Dinner was okay, although not truly mexican, the plates were too small, and every little item was an extra down to the sour cream. Not the best experience, after being sat late we were then rushed out so they could accomodate a large party. All in all, we wouldn't go here again.
Unsure that it's all that ! – I tried this place based on a recommendation from a co-worker. I showed up during off-peak hours (4:00pm on Saturday). Restaurant was slow, but parking lot full (small lot).
I was very surprised at how pricey the menu was.....so much so that I ended up opting for soup and an appetizer. Still ended up costing a Jackson only drinking water. Very pricey for Mexican restaurant in my opinion.
I was encouraged to get a drink from the waiter, but noticed there were no prices.....for any drinks (soda, coffee, tea, alcoholic)....very strange. No alcoholic drink menu, of course, so you are really at their mercy when it comes to getting your bill. I guess they make their money on drinks.
Food was good, but took a little while, surprising considering how little I ordered and it was an off-peak time. They served the standard chips and salsa, but skimped on the salsa by serving it in the smallest salsa bowl I've ever seen. Also surprising considering how much they undoubtedly make on the entrees. They do offer the fun "Guacamole at Tableside" but don't give a price on the menu for it. They label this as "market price".....only item I saw on the menu with unlisted price.......probably because it's popular....I guess you're at their mercy here too.
The place was very nice looking, clean, and had fun decorations. My guess is there are better mexican restaurants out there for those who are not Boomers with a lot of money.
Oh Please......... – I was in the mood for Mexican food really bad and my husband and I were driving by so we decided to go there...this place is soooooooo NOISY...and the food is soooooo not REAL MEXICAN FOOD...we ordered Quesadillas as appetiizers and got these empanadas with cheese in them...thats not authentic MEXICAN...this place seems like is own by Americans and has Mexican waiters to mask the fact that its not authentic....dont get me wrong...the food is not bad...but its not the place to go if you want some real authentic Mexican food...if your in Queens...drive down Roosevelt Ave towards Shea stadium and there will be plenty of real Mexican restaurants to choose from....this place is better suited for college students that want to get drunk...and dance to extremely loud mexican music all night....
