My fiance & I ate dinner here kinda late tonight around 9pm. I know with past experience at different restaurants (Not Mexican), Late at night the food is horrible!! However we were there an hour before closing & the food was amazing!! The BEST I've ever had at this location.. I'd give them 10☆ if I could!
I go here quite often. Be careful as they often confuse the sweet and unsweetened teas. Great food, generally great service, food, and mixed drink. Great place to let your children eat with you. There is a kid's menu as well.
South Tenampa use to be one of my favorite restaurants..but it has gone downhill. The dining room looks grubby most of the time (was there last night and some of the lights in the dining room were out.) Also, in the men’s bathroom, there was toilet paper and paper towels in the floor. The actual roll of paper towels was not in the dispenser, but laying in the floor as well. Women’s bathroom wasn’t much better. The bar has been dirty the last couple of times I’ve been there. Dried up crusty food stuck to it. The food is hit or miss anymore, sometimes when I go it’s awesome, but other times the food tastes like it’s been sitting out for hours. The rice is either greasy or dried up. The servers are great, very attentive most of the time. But the last few times we’ve been there, there hasn’t been a friendly face greeting us. I assume she’s the manager, Bc she sits in the front booth and does nothing the whole time I’m ever there, didn’t even look up from her phone when we walked in..she just yelled to us to have a seat where ever..never got up to give us menus, nor to offer us drinks or chips and salsa. We were only offered those things once our server, who was obviously busy doing everything else, came to our table. One day my family and I walked in, and she was standing at the podium by the door, FaceTiming with someone and seemed annoyed that we had came in. We STILL had to seat ourselves. But if a server is available, they always greet us with a smile and seat us. At one point our server was waiting on tables, and also busing tables, while she sat in that booth playing on her phone. He still managed to provide us with excellent service, even tho he had a million other things to do. It’s not a bad restaurant, just poorly managed. I love the servers, they are the only reason I come back. But if the food doesn’t improve, not even the service will bring me back. I use to tell everyone to go eat there, but now I tell them to just go to the West Tenampa. Better managed and cleaner. The servers are better at south, hands down. I love them all. It just needs some fine tuning!
Used to be my favorite Mexican restaurant. Today we went and there was (this isn't meant in a racist way) no Mexicans! It was just white people working there, the food was meh nothing like it used to be and it was crazy expensive I don't know what has happened there if they sold it or what, but I will never be back if this is how it's going to be. I'll go to Taco Bell and save money if it's gonna not be cooked by the awesome guys that used to be there.
We have been going there for a long time and have always had excellent food. Just because it's not a Mexican bringing your food does not mean a Mexican isn't fixing it. Anyone can serve food no matter what race. This place is an excellent place to eat and just hang out with friends and family.
