We have been searching for moderately priced restaurants with something besides fried food or pizza and decided to try Quintanas. As Californians, we are surrounded by Mexican food and were pleasantly surprised. The chicken was nicely marinated, the corn chips perfectly crunchy, and the guacamole...More

I'm not a fan of Mexican food but my partner was in the mood for fajitas so off we went. We have been here before but it has been years. Our female server was very nice and attentive. We were given complimentary tortilla chips and...More

The food was great but the service was terrible. The serve came and checked in a couple of minutes after receiving our food but didn't return. We didn't have refills for over half our meal.

One of my consistent favourite restaurants in the city. Always a great variety of soups, and the food is always fresh, tasty with great service and value!

Consistent for decades. Mexican Flag is a decent meal. The cooks have changed perhaps 100 times so at times it can be hit or miss. Usually busy which tends to be a good sign.

A few friends went for happy hour drinks. It seemed like an imposition to be there. Tried to talk us out of our drink choices, very slow, no napkins. It was difficult to order more drinks, worst service in years.

We had a nice lunch at Quintana today. The interior was bright, clean and colourful. The staff friendly and helpful. After trying some of the complementary chips and salsa (a little bland) our main courses arrived. My BBQ Burrito was a little too sweet for...More
