Re: “La Hacienda Taqueria

Let's see where do I start?! Huge fan of the margaritas especially the strawberry one!!! Pair it with an order of fish tacos and rice or their enchiladas and I swear you'll be coming back for more... This is literally the only Mexican restaurant you can go to where they the food to your liking. The waiter and waitresses are super polite and it's great environment to bring family and friends. The cherry on the top is the fact that you can go next door and purchase the fresh tortillas that you just finished devouring a couple of minutes ago!!! Two thumbs up La Ha!!!

Re: “The Chile Burrito Co.

I love this place! I eat lunch here at least once a week and they have consistently good food every time. You will not leave hungry or poor, as the food is all fresh plentiful and well priced.

Re: “The Chile Burrito Co.

This establishment would not be one of my favorite places to eat Mexican. I would much rather go to Q'doba's. It was pricey and not great at all. I ordered a chicken queasdilla. Very disappointing. I will never go again.

Re: “Fiesta Azteca

I have been to the Fiesta Azteca twice now. The first time was not that memorable other than the long wait before being seated. It was not busy at the time, so there wasn't much of an excuse. But despite that, we thought we would give it one more try. That was a horrible mistake. It took a LONG time to get seated. once we were seated we were brought chips and salsa and finally drinks. Then the waitress disappeared. No refills on everything, just waiting...

When the waitress did re-appear we had to ask for everything and was only brought a portion of what we asked for. I had to ask three times for a salsa refill. By the way, the salsa has a strange flavor and is very hot, so if you dare eat any be sure that you have plenty of water, which in my case I didn't.

Four of us were brough fajitas without the tortillas, which came about t minutes later so the food was nice and cold before we could start eating. One person in our party did not get his food with everybody else's because they apparently forgot his order.

There are too many restaruants in the area to choose from that are far better than this place and comparable in price. Don't waste your time here. But if you do plan to take the risk on the Fiesta Azteca, be sure to bring a couple bottles of water and a jar of Old El Paso with you.

Re: “Sol [Closed]

The food and service were great. This isn't the usual formula Mexican food found in national or local chains. The menu is well thought out and it all works with an upscale twist. Don't miss the Pollo Relleno.

Re: “Las Cazuelas Mexican Grill

Just ate at this place and it is very good! The prices are reasonable (our total was under $20 with tax) and the food is good and plentiful. I recommend this place if you need some mexican food and want to avoid Taco Bell.

Re: “Baja Burrito

I like the small chicken burrito with black beans and rice, lettuce, sour cream, and black olives. Delicious!

Re: “Lime [Closed]

It's a lot easier getting a table at Lime these days now that Whiskey Kitchen has opened! I was there on e a recent Friday night at 8 for dinner and there were empty tables the whole hour I was there. The atmosphere is still great, interesting-looking people coming and going (lots of pretty young women) and the service is friendly and attentive - we did not have to wait long after ordering for our drinks or food. Margaritas by the pitcher were a featured special that night, and the best pitcher of Margaritas I've ever had, in a particularly unusual pitcher - very sophisticated. Our appetizer - Coco Chili Shrimp - and our dessert - the flan - were great, I highly recommend them. But our dinner was disappointing. We shared a rib eye that was the featured special that night and not only was our dinner cold when it arrived at the table, but the meat was rather sinewy, not the kind of quality you'd expect from a restaurant. We could have done better at home. We may try again, because they have such creative dishes, in hopes that execution will be improved. Great atmosphere and service aren't enough to tolerate disappointing $20-something entrees.

Re: “Lime [Closed]

Lime offers great, interesting drinks with house-made mixers, an inventive pan-Latin menu, and a cool, sophisticated vibe. Despite appearing something of a hipster hangout, I've enjoyed every meal I've had here, and I'm not a hipster by any means. The food and service are terrific. If you come here looking for cheese-slathered Tex Mex, then this isn't the place for you. If you want contemporary, fresh, light Latin-inspired cuisine, then Lime will fit the bill.

Re: “Las Maracas

If you're hungry, and prefer a high-protein diet like me, Las Maracas has several excellent menu choices not found at the other run of the mill Mexican restaurants around; among them is Milanesa, an awesome country friend steak Mexican style; shrimp el diablo (grilled, bacon and pepper wrapped); shrimp el pirata (smother the above with cheese); chiles pablanos (fried egg wrapped peppers); and the fajitas alambres (smothered in cheese and heaped with bacon). The service is fast and friendly and the restaurant is clean. They have big family friendly tables suitable for larger groups so meet your friend there. Prices are very reasonable and the portions are large.

Re: “Baja Burrito

"A friend introduced me to San Diego style Fish Tacos almost 15 years ago now and I absolutely FELL IN LOVE with them. Since I'm from Ohio, finding the same taste as a San Diego FINS or WAHOO or any number of other places out there has been quite a difficult task. Anytime I visit a city I search online for any place in that city that might serve Fish Tacos and give them a try. Well, I must say, the moment I tasted the Fish Tacos from BAJA BURRITO in Nashville, I knew I had found the exact taste I was looking for. They are as EXACT as anything in San Diego, and eating them was just amazing. It's like San Diego was literally transplanted into the heart of County Music... how wild is that. Not only were the fish tacos just incredible, but the whole experience was an A+ all the way around. I loved the atmosphere. The chips were simply perfect. The guacamole was as good as I've ever had. My wife had a burrito and just loved it. And the staff were very very friendly and helpful. What a great, great experience all the way around. Personally, I'll find a way to get to the Nashville Baja Burrito if I'm within an hour of Nashville... it was that great."

Re: “Lime [Closed]

The owners of Virago bring you a sassy latin inspired lounge. The atmosphere is a Miami wanna-be hang out. The food is one of the worst on the city and way over priced. If you're gonna go, go on a full stomache.

Re: “Sol [Closed]

The service was lazy and the food lacked flavor. We had to send our food back to be cooked more thoroughly including the veggies. Which just confirmed to us that the staff is just lazy.

Re: “Los Arcos

This restaurant started out great, however, their service and friendliness has declined. They don't serve the dishes how and with what they describe in their menu. We were a party of five and all of our ordered dishes had something missing or wrong! I was never offered a refill! My husband had to ask for napkins three times, before we even got them. The manager was rude and not apologetic at all after we endured such at nightmare. And please don't order their Horchata, it was the worst we have ever had.
