great mexican food, hit and miss service. Sometimes the wait staff is really on top of it, sometimes i'm left without a drink for a long time. The food is fantastic, however, which it should be for the price.

The Southwest Plaza location has the worst service of any restaurant I have ever been to. I thought that the last time I dined in it could not get any worse when the waitress argued with me when I wanted to get a house margarita instead of the premium margarita I had been drinking, accusing me of not knowing what I ordered or what would be good. Strange enough the rest of the evening was horrible service as my girlfriend had to ask a nearby manage for a water refill, and then for the check. Did I mention that we were told there were 2 waiters serving us that night? Tonight I decided I would try again but order to-go to avoid poor service. I went to the waitress as directed by the hostess to retrieve my order and was promptly told it would be out in just a second. The waitress then proceeded to load up her tray and served other customers forcing me to wait nearly 10 minutes. When she finally returned she didn't even have my order! She made another waitress carry all the food while she opened up a bag. I paid and went on my way discouraged but happy to at least be having dinner. When I got home a mere 10 minutes later all the food was COLD. What really got me though was the taco that I specifically asked to be placed in its own container so that it would not be soggy. I did get my taco in a separate container but it was SO soggy that it disintegrated, I had a half a flexible taco shell laying on top of cold chicken and lettuce. I recommend that no one ever go to this location unless they are looking for a reason to be angry.

Our favorite place close to our family's hacienda. Try the Jaime's platter. It's so big that they have to bring it on two plates! Ask for the old style beans and mix in a little of the rice with them. MMMMmmm. Have the kids watch them make the tortillas.

I didn't really enjoy the food very much. Their customer service could have been better but it was fine. I wouldn't recommend it as somewhere I'd tell people to go.It does have a good atmosphere but that's about it.

We love authentic Mexican food and have found that this restaurant offers combinations that are very unique and could be considered gourmet. I love their Barbacoa tacos and their Lime chicken is great. Margaritas taste wonderful - we usually stick with the house due to price.

This place never disappoints... It's a great family mexican meal and the portions are generous. Good margueritas and traditional "american- style" mexican food.

I have had much better food at Taco Bell. The drink price was a mystery. They are making a "new" drink menu so in the process, they have no price to look at.....until you get the bill. Ouch!
The food was so bad. Save your money. Was not happy.

The restaurant certainly doesn't live up to some of the raves that I've heard. I've now been there twice, and won't bother going back. Sadly, it could be so much more than it is. I love the atmosphere of the restaurant, and wouldn't mind the insane waits if the quality of food matched. But you can get better "mexican" food at any On The Border or other chain restaurant. Don't waste your time or your money!

Apart from some of the other reviews the food was not great, but good. The ambience is more upscale which is a nice change from the typical Mexican dive, but the service ruined it for me. I have experienced poor to horrible service 4 of the 5 times I have eaten there. From the hostess to the bar tender to the servers, they were all rude, most of the time. I refuse to be treated that way by some young kid and will not be going there again.

The food was terrible, no vegetarian selections unless you like loads of cheese and pinto beans that are about five beans in soupy sauce. Everything was overpriced and the margaritas were sickenly sweet and very weak. The salsa was very bland and reminded me of spagetti sauce. My date had to send back his chicken enchiladas because he couldn't even eat them. He said the chicken tasted awful. My veggie fajitas consisted of greasy fried green peppers and a tiny dollop of processed guacemole with three tortillias for about nine bucks. They actually gave me a tiny cup of sauce with about five pinto beans on the bottom. The green peppers must have been fried in lard!

This has to be the worst "mexican" restuarant I have ever been to. And I tried to give it another chance and also tried another location. I don't think I've ever received food there that is actually fully cooked. Every time I've ever been there someones (if not more than one person) meal has to be sent back because it's not right or not what they ordered. The service is horrible!!! The first time we went we waited at least 30 minutes for our drinks (and that was AFTER waiting for the waitress to to even come to our table). We even spoke to a manager on one occasion, but he was rude as well. I will never go back to this place again!

I always thought good mexican food could only be found at little dive restaurants. Hacienda has proved that is not case. The margaritas and spicy green chile are excellent. Everthing was very fresh (including gaucamole). I really enjoyed the enchilidas and chili rellenos (crunchy, how I like them). Service was great, which you usually don't get in the small neighborhood spots.

The food tastes and is prepared much like a chain restaurant. Nothing special, nothing wrong, but rather your general, plain Mex food. If in Denver, go to a non-chain restaurant in the center city or NW Denver.

Hacienda is one of the few restaurants we all love to visit! Sometimes you do have to wait for a table on a busy weekend, but that's the case at most popular restaurants. The margaritas are great, especially the frozen ones! Fresh lime juice is used - no bottled sugared-up sweet mix. And nothing beats a freshly-made tortilla. The kids menu is a nice change from most subarban fare - no chicken nuggets and burgers!

My favorite dish - Admiral Guzman's shrimp enchildas

I ahve been to this restaurant on four different occasions and have had some of the best service and best food of all of the restaurants I have been to in Denver. I have lived all over the country and loved the Hacienda swirl and the Jamie platter and the shrimp over the bed of rice is also an excellent choice, the servers are always attentive and I love that they communicate to each other through their head gear. Thanks for an excellent time and I will definitely be back for more.

I have read so much hype about this place and decided to take the plunge. and was not impressed. Terrible serivce, we had some punk kid from the burbs walking around with a walkman on his head, and waited on everything. The food was average as best, there was nothing authentic in this place at all.

They say that a good restaurant is always busy. Well, this place is always busy. You may have to wait a little, but it is well worth it.

The chips and salsa are very tasty. The chile con queso is also very good.

I recommend anything with Hacienda's green chile sauce. It is tasty and has a very good kick to it (HOT!).

You can also call ahead to get your name "on the list" sooner if you would rather not wait!

People who rate the wait time forget that the reason it is so long is because this place is so popular!! The food is great, the service wonderful and consistent, the restuarant beautiful and an overall dining joy. I highly recommend this place (even with kids!), but call ahead! This is a huge restuarant and one kitchen can only feed so many people, but they do it with finesse and professionalism that is hard to find in restuarants nowadays. Keep up the good work!!

What is it about this place? Alcohol? I tried it twice. Both times it was too crowded - not a bad thing if it's worth the wait. I think it's due to the slow service. I watched servers make many empty-handed trips. It reminds me more of a place to "hang out" after work... like at those places near Park Meadows. Too much $$ for the dining experience. I prefer the "hole-in-the-wall" places to this. If I want this atmosphere, I'll hang out in the DTC or Park Meadows. Oh... didn't like the chips and salsa.

I went to the new one ...boring tasteless food rotten staff complete with head sets (why do they need headsets?? it's a restraunt not a military engagement) I had read all the hype and was so very disapointed when it turned out to be such a dull menu....

I don't know who has reviewed this restaurant but I am from Texas and I disagree. The service has gotten worse every time I have gone here. I would not go back again by this point and I would never recommend it to anyone else. At least not anyone I would want to keep as a friend.

This place is a huge disappointment. Terrible grub. They even quote you 30 mins to be seated but you're crammed at their bar 150 mins later. Once you are seated the food arrives rather quickly which isn't a shock since it's a slight step above Alpo. I am an extremely heavy-set fella and even I couldn't take more than three bites of this slop. This place is pathetic. What's with the headsets?
