If you're looking for authentic Mexican cuisine, you'd have to search hard and long to beat this place. Rancho Toro Loco offers a very family-friendly atmosphere with wonderful Mexican decor. They also make the best Margaritas. ;)
The prices are a bit high but worth it. An overstuffed burrito will set you back at about $14-16 but you'll most likely have leftovers for lunch the next day.
Their service is second to none. The first time we went, the owner's son sought us out to personally welcome us, and then apologized for not doing it sooner (he had a kitchen emergency). When we went there again about 8 months later, he remembered us AND our names! Unreal!
I promise that you'll be please with this dining experience.
PROS: A finely decorated establishment, great food and service.
CONS: I tend to eat and drink too much when I'm there. ;)
LOVE this place! Davey's offers two ample dining areas (smoking and non-smoking) separated by a large bar area, equipped with the most friendliest and attentive bartenders around.
The menu is pub fare and excellent pub fare at that. The menu offers an array of appetizers, salads, sandwiches and burgers in addition to entrees, Irish fare, children's dishes and even a low carb section. Something for everyone! :)
The prices are affordable and the service is superb. Check it out if you haven't already. You'll be glad you did.
PROS: Excellent atmosphere, prices and service.
CONS: Davey's becomes annoyingly busy during peak dinner hours.
I have been to this place several times (it's convenient to where I live) and have never been pleased with their food or service.
There are always six or seven teenaged hostesses standing around, doing very little. This is not actually a criticism, it's more of a confused observation.
What disappoints me is, after living in Los Angeles for seven years and actually tasting fine Mexican cuisine, the food at Blue Moon is tolerable at best. Mexican? Hardly. It's more gringo than Taco Bell.
If you sit at the bar, be prepared to have to flag down the bartender each time you want another drink. None of them (it's always been a man, in my experience) seem to pay much attention to the patrons or their drink needs. And why would he? He's got six or seven teenaged hostesses hanging around to keep his attention.
If you're looking for a fine Mexican restaurant, I suggest skipping this place and hopping over to Rancho Toro Loco on Orangeburg Road, where the food is great and you're treated like an actual customer.
PROS: Great location to my home.
CONS: Too many to list.
