I have reviewed Lauenzo's before and dined there several times. It seems they have changed hands since El Tiempo is now listed om their menu. The menu is new and different. Parking ample and the service is good. But, the food is average and expensive. Same food flavors available for less and much better flavors available for the costs.

The specialty of the house is prime beef which I have had and recommend. This time I had the lasagna and the lunchtime serving was not only very good but was also extremely out sized and I probably had enough for two more meals in my take home package.

Have been here a few times in the past and ordered delivery from here, but this was by far the best meal I have had here. The queso was out of this world and love the mixture of flour and corn chips. We enjoyed the ribs, the pork tenderloin and the beef enchiladas. Topped off with fantastic key lime pie... More

The food was amazing, I had pork chops and mashed potatoes, my wife had the salmon and said it was great. Service was quick and they checked several times on our drink refills and... More

We visited Laurenzo's for the first time today and were not disappointed. The selections are amazing, the service was excellent, we will definitely be returning. The Rustic French Toast is outstanding as well is the Blackened Crab with poached egg.

We stopped in on a whim for lunch one day, not quite sure what to expect. Our server, Russ, was friendly, helpful and made us feel quite at home. My wife and I both had the Italian sausage ravioli with a small side Caesar salad. The dressing tasted homemade and had a delightful but subtle hint of anchovies. The ravioli... More
