Cesar's Old Mexico restaurant is a new entity on E. Sunshine St, We stopped in to check it out and OMG was it good. Through a mixup in communication, I thought I was ordering beef enchiladas, while our server thought I was ordering a carne asada with red sauce. When it came I was surprised, but it smelled so good, I decided to give it a go. It was GREAT! One of the best Mexican meals I've ever had.My wife had a tamale and chicken enchiladas with mole. She said it was the best Mexican meal she could remember.Needless to say, Cesar's Old Mexico is now our favorite Mexican restaurant in Springfield. BTW, one thing you should know is that it is authentic Mexican, not Tex-Mex. Also, about half of the patrons eating there are Spanish speakers. I'm predicting Cesar's Old Mexico will have to move to bigger quarters before long.
This is below the worst fast food quality at casual sit-down dining prices. I will say that for the price, the portions are pretty large, but I'd rather have just a little good, carefully prepared food than a lot of lukewarm greasy slop. The cheese dip had a film on top that only comes from being prepared and sitting for a long time. Everything on my plate was cold and EVERYTHING was possibly the greasiest and oiliest food I've ever paid too much to not enjoy. The fish tacos had tartar sauce. The fish is almost definitely frozen. Nothing tasted fresh and it was all poorly prepared and served lukewarm. The staff was nice and the place was clean and they're open 24 hours a day, so there are advantages to eating here so long as you're ok with paper plates with plastic utensils. I will not be back.
The store is new, pretty, and clean. Employees usually pleasant, especially those in pharmacy. decent selection. Prices, though, are outrageous-many items $1-3 more than their competitors charge for the same thing-especially dirty when you consider that several Price Cutter stores in the area are in low income neighborhoods where customers don't have transportation to stores further away, and are forced to be gouged.Additionally, if you're physically challenged and ride the bus, don't go to this store. Part of the 10 minute walk to and from the bus stop is over an uneven, rocky, dirt path. Returning to the bus stop you have to haul your groceries up a steep hill. Not possible with a lot of medical conditions.
We couldn't be more pleased! My wife and I were here for the first time (while on our honeymoon). The staff provided excellent service and were very attentive to our needs. I had the fajitas taco salad (with steak) & my wife ordered the Steak Mexicana (with 3 fajita wraps,T-bone steak, rice, refried beans, sauteed peppers and onions, guacamole, and sour cream). Both meals were excellent! The steak from each meal was done perfectly - tender and juicy. The prices were very reasonable. I endorse few restaurants, but whole heartedly recommend Puente Mexican Restaurant at 1111 E.Republic Road in Springfield,MO.
Disappointed when I called the pharmacy wanting a price quote and neither of the two employees I spoke with would do it. One said she'd look it up but never came back to the phone. The second, a male employee just plain hateful. Refused to look up the cost because he didn't have that medication currently in stock. People in other parts of the store friendly, helpful, and easy to find, though. Decent selection, but outrageously high prices. Trip between bus stop and store much more realistic for physically challenged customers, than the arrangement at the Nolting Ave. store.
The ladies who work there are great!! The man who I believe to ber the owner/manager is often rude, short-tempered, and had tried to over-charge me on items more than once. When I go I make sure he is at least not working the cash register!!
I absolutely love shopping here, not only are the speople friendly but the prices are great. Traditional grocery stores add 33% to their cost where as this store only adds 10%. This is the only store i will shop at now.
this was consumers market for years then daves iga (owned by a consumers employee) then price cutter. always friendly, helpful. store clean not alot of selection but if you want a true neighborhood store this is for you
My favorite restaurant in the world. I could eat here everyday all day. Don't listen to the people who argue that it's not authentic Mexican food. It doesn't matter. It's better. It doesn't get any better.
Great store in my opinion -- very helpful employees, friendly, good stock of items. A few cents high on this one you will find others lower than Wally.. It is clean and neat. I like it!!!!Shirl
