New owner bought the restaurant about 2 years ago and they've changed things for the better!! They installed a bar in the back, more tvs, but left the place family friendly. They also have a great fajita special on Wednesdays after 4 p.m. They're different from the regular fajitas they have the rest of the week. The owner used to own a restaurant in Fort Worth previously and it's his special recipe. My other favorite is the brisket tacos they have every Friday until 3 p.m. just delish. And it's really cool that they have flaming margaritas!
My husband & I were seated and the Guy that seated us was Directing my husband where to sit and He then, while I was Already seated was Telling me to seat in that same seat he wanted me hubby to seat in, And I was already seated, I had Surgery less than a week ago. I asked the server for Brkfst and he said No But we have Lunch specials, they didn't have Decaf Coffee Available.
The food was Good, But The Service Stunk. That Greeter guy & other Servers were Standing at the Front a few feet from Us, Jus staring at us Making us Really Uncomfortable. Then our server Rarely came to our table and then didn't even offer us Dessert and just Brought us our Check and didn't even Thank us or ask us if we wanted something else. Then we stood up to leave and the Bus lady was right in front of us picking up our plates, we couldn't even get out of there, she was right in the way. Our Experience was Horrible and we will Never go back there again or Recommend to anyone.
I've never wanted to leave a review before, but eating at La Familia last night has compelled me to. It definitely ranks as one of the worst Mexican food restaurants I've ever eaten ate, based on food alone. Although I've never eaten at Panchos before, I can only imagine La Familia being one tiny step above them in quality - but at least you get a buffet at Panchos !
O.K., enough ranting...let me get into specifics: 1) All the food on my plate tasted very pre-salted (enchiladas, rice, beans, sauce) 2) All of the food I received seemed less than fresh and more like something that was scooped out of a cafeteria 3) Spent $10-$15 for this sub-par food (don't know the exact cost, because I didn't pay) 4) My ice-tea had a distinct tap water after taste 5) Waitress was very nice, but asked if she could take our plate literally every 3-5 mins (interrupting any discussion we were having - quite annoying) 6) They offer no deserts 7) The waiters sneak up on "Birthday" people with a super loud "HEY!!" - although I think this was unique, I guess this combined with the 3-5 min waiter interruptions were made for a lot of chaos.
I hope this review helps someone.

The food is great
The service is excellent
and the prices are fair!
The staff makes you feel welcome from the time you walk in the door. My favorite part is the free add ons. They bring you hot jalepenos , a tamale , and a soup bean or chicken. I love this because you can try new things without gamling! I reccomend this to all my friends!
