This place is a simple, but loveable, Mexican taqueria. Just North of Washington Square Mall, at 10th and Mitthoeffer. (NE corner.) This was my first time here. This place has been in business at least two and a half years that I've been aware of. I noticed it while filling up at the next-door Speedway gas station, at least that long ago. I like these hole-in-the-wall humble authentic places that cater to a Mexican clientele. Opening hours (11 am) are posted on the door, but not the closing hours. I asked when they closed and was told "when there are customers, later, and when there aren't customers, earlier." Menu is very limited, with tacos, tortas (sandwiches), and burritos. The tacos are not tex-mex american (or Taco Bell) style, but just some meat in a tortilla. The burrito was the "put the toppings and the sides all inside" style. I was disappointed they didn't have a chicken option for burritos, but they had 8 other options, including tongue, and brains (cesos). I'd avoid eating cow brains, even well-cooked, as that is where the BSE (mad cow disease) resides, in the brain and spinal cord. And temperature doesn't destroy the things that cause BSE, "prions." Weekend menu has more items, but the only one I remember is birria (lamb). Good birria is good, and most of the birria that I've tried in town is good. So if you're at a birria-on-the-weekends place, try it some weekend. You're probably going to think I'm a little generous in my rating. But something about this place really appealed to me. The clientele included families with little kids. The spirit of the place and staff was just right for me. The cook and waitress were confident, friendly, put-you-at-ease types. So I'm giving them my "Linus' Sincere Pumpkin Patch Award". The men's room was out of "papel higienico" but was clean. If you like clean, cozy, friendly, little hole-in-the-walls that serve simple authentic Mexican food, you ought to like it. And they must be doing something right to stay in business this long.
Visited this restaurant on Friday afternoon. The service was alright, got seated right away, chips and salsa was brought within a couple of minutes and the waitress took our order soon after. The food was a different story, while it was not bad, it wasn't anything to be excited about either. The food was lacking any type of flavor, it was plain and simple. Prices were about the same as most Mexican Restaurants but flavor wise, it left a lot to be desired. On my visit, I saw a lot customers(couples) eating there. Unfortunately, I won't visit this restaurant again. I have visited many Mexican restaurants and the lack of flavor of the food on this one is a deal breaker for me.
We really enjoy our meals at La Parada. The food is always very good and the quality is always the best. The service is sometimes a bit slow, but that may be because they are always very busy. My children and I spend our celebration dinner here all the time, and will continue to do so in the future.
Visiting this Qdoba's is always a great experience. It is always clean, and the service is fast and friendly. A friend that I was with one day even got to do the chicken dance and won a free lunch. The manager is a real nut but a fun guy!
Very good sushi. Try the soybean wrap. It's pink. a little easier to put down. The specialty rolls are large colorful and tasty. Price is better than average. Two thumbs up here!
Everything about this place was average. Food was ok. I've had much better food at other establishments. Prices are pretty good. My drink was pretty good.
This place is a great place to get quality food fast in the downtown area. Lines to order/get food can be long, but it's worth the wait (and it moves fast)!
Food was okay, but for the prices you would expect more food. Service was good. Overall, the price to food ratio is off. Probably won't go back.
This store is way better than the one off of Southport and Emerson. After going there tonight I will always be going to this one from now on
Much better than the one in Avon. I thought all were equal clearly not. This location is quick and has more flavor in their food
