Being from Southern Cal my standard for Mexican food is very high. That said it was pretty good. Tacos were legit. Salsa, good. Margaritas we're great. The beans were horrible. Whoever made them had no idea what they were doing. A solid effort overall though.

This was our first time to Pistolera. The nachos were tasty and a half serving was perfect for two people. We also enjoyed a chimichanga. There are many other items on the menu and we hope to enjoy more in the future. The only complaints that we had: there were way too many jalapenos on the nachos and the rice... More

We had burrito, mushroom and spinach quesadilla , fajita and shrimp taco. You can choose three different tacos . They got the chicken in the side for the... More

After years of bad TexMex food on Cantina Agave level, the original management team is back and quality skyrocketed. Bside normal TexMex, wonderful Arrachera Steak not known well in Europe....fantastic Guacamole and even the Salsa with the obligatory Nacho chip is fresh and tasty. Strongly recommend it.

On a hot July Sunday, searching for a restaurant to have our lunch we found La Pistolera and our choice was proved very good. The restaurant had outdoors and indoors tables/seats but we preferred to stay inside were the temperature was much more convenient and the decoration nice. We really enjoyed our Margaritas (de la casa, Fruity, etc you name... More

We have been visiting this place and they simply are the worst!! The quality level between the different pistolera's is enormous. In Jinqiao restaurant they simply don't pay attention to you, ignore you, the kitchen took over 1 hour and we had to cancel our food and leave, they didn't care, they even never gave me my receipt to sign...

It's hard to comment on the food, I can only comment on the complete lack of service. We were greeted and given menus and then completely ignored for 15 minutes at which point I left. We tried to get their attention but they would not stop. We even spoke to one girl as she walked past but she did not... More
