Reviews:
This place specializes in Mexican seafood. That is different enough to give it a couple of points in my book. Unfortunately it also smells. That costs them the points. On my last visit I found the tortillas to be small. That also cost them a point.
Drive away from this place, don't stop. My daughter and I went into Buena Visa and was ignored by two of the staff. We waited about 5 mins to be seated in an empty restaurant. Once seated, I asked for sour cream and guacamole for the chips and the waitress looked at me like I had three heads. They do not offer guacamole she informed me. I looked at the menu and the prices were high. After what seemed like days we had our ordered taken then the food came out. What a tasteless mess. If I wanted pretend Mexican food with no taste I would have made it myself. So in closing, lousy service, high priced food and no taste.
Let me preface this review by stating I was very much looking forward to this restaurant opening. My parents live near it so I saw it slowly construct into a restaurant. I love trying new Mexican restaurants. Unfortunately, this experience will give me pause in choosing to eat at a new restaurant in the future without any Yelp reviews. I was EXTREMELY disappointed in all aspects of this restaurant. First off, the decor and restaurant in general is very uninviting. It is wide open with two long rows of tables. It's hard to see because the only lighting is along the center of the restaurant in the middle of the two rows of tables. Awful design. I was more than glad to overlook this because it's all about the food. The chips were good, but the salsa was not. They didn't even have a regular pico. The service was abhorrent. I can count on four fingers the number of times our waitress came to our table: 1) Take drink orders, 2) Take food orders, 3) Bring food, 4) Bring check (after waiting for 10 minutes to flag her down). We did not get ONE refill of drinks. We were not offered more chips or salsa. It was barebones service. The food was tasteless. My rice tasted like nothing. I had to slather it with sauce to give it some sort of flavor. The beans were can-grade. The burrito had a Taco Bell sort of taste. I had the al pastor and it was actually dry and tasted old. I am not exaggerating one bit... everyone else in my party who got the burrito said the same thing. You're better off getting some tacos at one of the many taquerias in the area and taking them home and eating them.... this was just awful. Please learn from my mistake and save your money.
