I grew up coming here and I hadn't been back in years. I wish I hadn't come back.
First of all, the chips were hard and stale. I love chicken flautas and usually get them whenever I have mexican food. When my flauta came it looked good, but when I cut into it I noiced it looked dry and off color. I tasted it and it didn't taste right. Then, I smelled it....it was bad chicken. :(
I kindly told the waiter that the chicken smelled and tasted like it was bad. He took it back to the kitchen and came back a few minutes later to ask if I wanted another one. No, I asked for a BEEF fajita instead. (knowing that all the flautas are probably pre-made and frozen...they'd all be bad)
Now, I make awsome fajitas myself so my standards are pretty high. The waiter then returned to ask if I wanted tortillas with my fajitas....?? Uh....yes please.
When my "fajita" was served it was not my idea of a fajita. Since when is a fajita served with big chunks of celery and whole green onions?? I was also disapointed that the beef was tough and peppery...not fajita beef. It was like the chef just threw a bunch of "fajita-type" things on a plate. I didn't eat much of it.

The bill came and they charged me for the fajita...$5.00 more than my original Flauta.
I know for sure that any other restaurant would comp a customer that could have gotten salmonella from the first dish. Who knows, I'll see how I feel in the morning.

All around the food was horrible, but the service from the waiter was good. Sadly, I will not be returning.

I felt sick after going here a few years ago so I stayed away for a long time. I decided recently to give it another try and it was just as bad. I ordered a vegetarian entree. I asked for whole beans instead of refried--they said no problem. Half way through eating it I discovered the "whole beans" were really beans with big chunks of pork. The server was very rude about it and didn't offer to do anything. The food is bad, the service is bad, the restaurant is always dirty-Stay away!

PROS: None
CONS: Everything!
