Meal was good, not great- my chicken flautas could have used more chicken, and the rice was a bit watery. Service was very slow- due to short handedness, according to manager. The other two meals were fine. We are willing to give them another chance, as we did speak to the manager about our concerns, and he seemed responsive.

It is very rare to get excellent BBQ up in the north. I'm a yankee, but I travel for a living and spend plenty of time in the south to know what real BBQ is. Let me tell you - this place nails it! Just found this place today and I leave town tomorrow, but believe me - I'll be... More

The only positive is that one day this must have been a cool building. It goes downhill from there. Start with a location right next to the state prison. Add in that Auburn isn't the city it used to be. The eclectic, "Let's make this look Mexican" decor is pitiful. The drink machine had four post-its over offerings that said,... More

Hands down the best authentic Tex/Mex you'll find. Unique atmosphere, friendly staff and you can BYOB! We've been frequenting Connie's for better than 14 years and would drive out of our way anytime to enjoy their Mexican cuisine.

This restaurant was consistently great until Connie sold out and returned to Mexico. Now, taste, quality and service are hit or miss with the new owner. The only thing consistent is that you will find your take out salad swimming in a pool of water, every single time. It's disgusting, and hard to say what the problem is-nice to know... More
