Terrible, terrible experience. Had diarrhea for two days... I was in the mood for some spanish/mexican food and I decided to give this place a try despite all the mixed reviews. When I called, I didn t have a menu and with the help of the guy on the phone, I ordered enchilladas and chicken stew with shrimp salad and empanadas. The guy whom I was speaking with sounded really nice and helped me out by saying that he would include a menu so it would be easier to order. This place is at most 15 minutes away from my house. An hour later, I call back and the same guy picks up and says that the delivery girl has been calling me and she was waiting for a while. I told him i hadn t received any calls. He sounded annoyed. I finally went outside and flagged down the delivery girl. My address couldn t have been any clearer. She came up to me very rudely and said that she had been trying to find my house for a long time and she called me an endless number of times. I asked her the number she wrote down and informed her that she had written it wrong. Despite this information she didn t apologize and kept the same rude tone. Regardless, I still tried to get an apology out of her by telling her to tell whomever I spoke to on the phone that they wrote my number down wrong. She still decided to be stubborn and not apologize. Well at least I got my food, I thought. I wasn t happy for too long: the shrimp salad was EXTREMELY salty! to the point i needed water and couldn t eat it anymore and had to throw it away. The chicken stew was okay. I m usually a white meat person but decided to give it a try anyway. It tasted pretty good with the black beans. The empanadas were pretty good, with the chicken having a slight smoky flavor. My enchiladas, on the other hand, never came. I was charged for them but I guess they screwed that up too. There was no menu either. And to top that all off, for the next TWO days my stomach was in pain. I had diarrhea for the next two days convincing me never to order from this place again. It was so bad I couldn t go out knowing that I had to be near a bathroom. I have NEVER in my life have that happen to me. I am NOT new to mexican or spanish food so I could safely say that this place is no good. Doesn t seem sanitary either. There are better places out there that have more quality. If you are willing to put up with what I dealt with, order from here... but I would advise you to stay away from this hassle.
I just noticed someone else posted a review on Yelp about having stomach problems from eating their desserts/food here... huh
