Great Food, 4/18/2008

Me and my co-worker go there for lunch every now and then... they have a GREAT lunch menu. The best carnitas we've ever had!!! for the luch you can have carnitas, rice, beans, torillas, salsa and a... drink for only $9! Not to mention the service is great!!!

it is not worth it...., 11/02/2007

My friends and i went there to try it out..the ambience is nice and we were welcomed by the hostess right away and directed us to a long wooden table. We ordered for some drinks right away and got... some appetizers..and we are not really happy about the portions..i know that appetizers are served in a small quantity,but this one is micro quantity!chips are so small and so thin, it flew out away from the table and it took few seconds to hit the floor because it was so thin..it glides on the air!! Here comes the main course, i ordered the pork loin dish and the waitress told me that is about 10 oz (oh my!)...that is the "sign" but she told me that it comes with rice and some vegs at least...and here comes my meal...it was not a 10oz meat and the rice?...well..it was about the size of a 1/4 cup!!!how can you be so cheap with the rice portion!! The rest of my group had the same bad experience eating the "kids meal"..and the drink?..it is not even good at all..and we complained one of the drinks that we ordered and they did not even do anything about it at all! My friends and i are not food snobs ...but the experience we had on this restaurant will gonna haunt us forever! We left that place and we were still hungry and i even thought of going to los panchos and order something to go. Each of us spent about $30.00(just 1 drink,2 aps that we all split and the main course)..and i am telling you,it is not even worth it...we could have gone to George at the cove for the same price
