It was a Saturday night and the place was empty. At first I thought,"It's the economy." Then I realized, it's the food.

I ate at Paseo Cantina on June 8, 2009 and ordered their $6.95 buffet. I left a $1.00 tip at the table and paid with my credit card. When I received my credit card bill a $4.00 tip was added on dishonestly. I tried calling the manager

Mediocre food and SOME OF THE WORST SERVICE I have ever experienced. AND they billed my credit card for an extra $50 that was not on my receipt. [It was business travel, so I kept the receipt.] Very dodgy. Avoid at all costs.

We just came back from there for lunch. The buffet entrees were limited, confused by the chicken mushroom? entree. Trays always seemed empty. No pastries or sweets were offered. The iced tea was lukewarm and not much ice was offered.
