Food was very average. Decor was borderline terrible, no ambiance. I would not want to see this place with all the lights on. Mariachi show was fun. Would not recommend. In fact there was not much on Colorado Avenue that was appealing.

Stopped here for a quick lunch. Food was great, service was fast. I had a bbq chicken salad. Great iced tea. They feature tables both inside and outside. Great drink menu and lots of options. When in Pasadena, I will be sure to come back.

Beside the food and great costumer care, Inclusion is a great key in a successful community. Congratulation management for yesterday's performance. Arcoiris LA Mariachi was a wonderful experience. I will be back soon with more Friends. Michael Dergar Señior Contributor food critic
