No Bueno! – This place sux! The most authentic thing about this place is the waiters. The tortillas are store bought, the cheese comes right out of a jar and it is outrageously over priced. I ordered a quesadilla for $8.00, worse then Taco Bell. Sure the decorations are cute, but doesnt make up for the lack of "authentic" or overly priced, your better off getting recipes off line and making it yourself, save a few bucks.
YUMMY – the food was great and its one of the BEAT mexican places around here. i would so recomend it. Its a good place for up here since the food up north Stinks
Most Horrible Mexican Food I've Ever Had – I was visiting Groton one weekend and went to city search to find a good local restaurant. After reading such fabulous reviews (probably written by the owners/waitstaff) we decided to give it a try. The atmosphere was not what I expected nonetheless the food is what was important. The food was very disappointing. It was greasy, not very tasteful and very low quality. The salsa, which received a good rating from someone who wrote a previous review, tasted like a packed salsa that comes in an Oretaga all in one taco box. The thought of being sick passed both our minds. Although the margarita that we each had was decent. That might be the only compliment I could muster up. I may have been cheap but you got less than what your money was worth. Dont waste your time.
Only decent mexican in Southeastern Connecticut – I have lived a lot of places and have enjoyed a lot of Mexican food, but this is the only Mexican Restaurant to eat at in the Mystic area- Much better than Margarita's! The staff is friendly and remember our family- the salsa is wonderful, and the chilis rellenos are FABULOUS!!!! Sopapillas are very good as well. Enjoy.
Nothing less than fabulous! – This is some of the best Mexican food around.....and they make home made tamales!! The chips are always warm and crunchy and the salsa delilcious. I have brought their food to the homes of friends who have also raved.....and agreed that it was very authentic. Bravo Orgega!
DONT GO HERE-GO TO COOKOO NEST WESTBROOK CONNECTICUT IF YOU WANT GOOD MEXICAN FOOD – WE GOT ABOUT 6 NACHOS IN A PLATE SOGGY, NO SALSA. TACO SALAD WAS BROWN LETTUCE, NO SALSA, NO SOUR CREAM NO GUACAMOLE. TACOS WERE WORSE I EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE, FROM CALIFORNIA, TO TENNESSEE, TO HERE.
THIS PLACE IS SO BAD, TACO BELL I WOULDNT FEED TO MY DOG, BUT IS BETTER THAN THIS PLACE.
OH... WITHIN THE HOUR AFTER WE ATE HERE ONE OF US WAS SICK AND THE REST OF US WERE FEELING PRETTY BAD WITH STOMACH ACHES. WE ARE TURNING THEM INTO THE CITY OFFICIALS TOMORROW. I HAVE NEVER HAD POOR FOOD FROM MEXICANS LIKE THESE ONES.
