Just stopped on our way home from the keys! Great food! Hit the spot! Salsa and guacamole were great!
I usually don't write reviews. I must make an exception, after eating at La Rosa Restaurant. Everything we tried was the most delicious and authenti…
nice Mexican place i love coming here food is cheap and reasonable, service is alright i mean you can come here and check it out when youre around
nice restaurant here in Homestead its pretty far but its worth the drive, great service delicious food and the employees are very receiving and well greeted i enjoyed my time here, food is done quick dont have to wait much, and food has its great taste not to much of anything, well prepared, place is fancy and clean. never i had a complain about this place
Horrible experience waiting time or food. We left because we wait 2 hrs. The excuse was a birthday if 40 or more but that it's not a excuse. You need to get more employees in schedule for that. Bad management
I visited this place last month with my girl friend , We had a great meal and especially cheese tacos, and traditional mexicana comida was really delicious. It was surely a place where satisfaction is guranteed when it comes up with a taste. Ohh, i forgot to mention about the fresh lime with lemon slices on top that is also helpful for digestion when you over eat ;)
One of my favorite places! Steak and cheese tacos, Guac and pico-de-gallo all homemade. We eat their at least once a month.
this place is the best for Mexican food. If you want to dine-in for lunch, you'll need to be there at about 1130am. It is very tight in there, so get there before or after lunch time. Prices are pretty reasonable. Service is always great for me, the food is delicious and the salsa bar is always full. I always order tacos de carne asada and a large horchata. Pay with cash, credit or debit; bathrooms are clean, the restaurant is clean, cozy and air conditioned. I go maybe, once a week or about 3 times a month. Don't forget to yell "GRACIAS!" on the way out, it's a Pasadita tradition.
Excellente comida tradicional mexicana
A little expensive for my taste but the food is amazing. I love the tacos. The salad bar is amazing. But the tacos are over $1 for one.
I go here regularly with friends and family, or at least I used to. This place recently went under huge changes so they could open in time for Cinco de Mayo. I just had lunch there with my family today so we could see all their preparations for the celebration tonight. The outside looks phenomenal, and we were surprised that they did so much in only a few days. Things went downhill once we got inside. Our server had exactly ONE day of experience being a server, so every order had been submitted erroneously. That's not completely uncommon for new staff, but I would expect management to spend more time on training the servers before letting them loose during the biggest Hispanic holiday at the prettiest Hispanic restaurant in town. Our ceviche appetizer came out the size of an entree and without it's usual tostada, so immediately we told the server that it wasn't what we ordered. He told us to eat it and that he would ensure we would only be charged for the appetizer size ($5 vs $15 fyi). The wrong orders however did not excuse the chef from sending us raw shrimp in our ceviche. The shrimp were gray, slimy, and disgusting. Of course we sent it back, but none of the five managers would believe our word that the shrimp was raw until they actually pulled it out of the trash to verify that we were capable of identifying a dangerously raw shellfish (which I was personally insulted by). One manager kept insisting that we try their ceviche cooked properly, and she would bring out a small portion. This was nice, but we had their ceviche earlier this week so we know what it tastes like, and eating raw shrimp had turned our stomachs away from ceviche for at least the time being. After insisting for the 3rd time, we said "OK" just to get her to lay-off. It came out 25 minutes later and we had no interest in eating it, but it was cook properly this time and delicious as we remembered. Simultaneously, our entrees arrived and the wrong style of fajitas were brought out, so I had to watch my husband eat while I waited an additional 30 minutes for the re-fire, but management assured us that the cooks and staff would enjoy eating the mistake fajitas in the kitchen, so I could rest easy knowing that they were taken care of. My husband ordered his usual; the Calamares Diabla, which is usually incredibly tender, but today was overcooked and tough (still flavored sauce nonetheless). The fajitas that finally arrived were correct the second time, but not anything above average as far as taste and presentation goes. Our waiter went missing for well over 40 minutes so management had to bring us the check, which included the full price for the raw shrimp ceviche entree. Yup, not a single discount for any of their mistakes. The combination of everything going wrong had my blood boiling, but mostly because we were there only a few days ago and it was outstanding. Granite, our waiter is usually Victor and he doesn't require the assistance of five scatter-brained supervisors who do not attempt to communicate with one another. Alas, I am sad that my favorite restaurant has become an epic fail. They are located in a horrible part of town, so for their sake, I hope they get their s*** in order before everybody's experience blocks any good memories that they might have had at El Santo.
