Today's visit was as maddening as reading Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury and trying understand what the heck is going on. It wasn't busy when we went, but it took them 5 minutes to seat us. It took 25 minutes for them to take our order. Our party had 4 children under the age of 5. You'd think they... More

A nice family restaurant, but the tacos didn't live up to their menu description, at least not the "Spicy Pulled Pork Tacos." A promise of tangy “famous spicy habanero peppers,” tomatillos, onions, and cilantro sauce, was missing every ingredient, except the pulled pork (see photo). Bland! Best bet is to order the tacos Al Carbon, which my wife and I... More

Arrived at restaurant with five people, seated in back room near party of 20+. Asked for a different table because of the extreme noise. We were graciously reseated. Then when order drinks a person came up and said we had to go back to the other table, this one was reserved. We said we wouldn't be able to hear at... More

Service was good, I don't have any negative to say about the servers. Very prompt and courteous service. I thought the salsa was like water. The chicken enchiladas are supposed to be their signature dish according to the menu. The chicken tasted like it was boiled in water then rolled into an enchilada. Very bland and didn't go well with... More

Papa Perez...outside appearance pleasent cur appeal. Inside appearance, bar to left at entrance very nice layout, is petitioned off from restaurant. Restaurant is simple layout, causal dress. I choose the Carne Guisada-the beef was very tender and season well. A nice suprise was in the Charro Beans there was a little bacon and sausage. The chips were fresh and crisp,... More

I know everyone swears by the fried, stuffed avocado. I tried it but it was a bit much for me. Ate tacos next time. Staff courteous, location and ambiance is great. Would eat there again and try more things on the menu.

Went to have a drink - my husband walked in carrying a near empty cup of coffee and was immediately yelled at by a waitress telling him to get out - if there was any alcohol in that cup What is so sad is you should ask that person not accuse them. I understand you don't bring alcohol drinks in... More

A family run restaurant that has typical Tex-Mex food. Reasonable lunch menu and good quality food. Always friendly staff to greet you and take care of your needs.
