Stale tacos straight from Stop & Shop, bland salsa are an apt warning that a passionless dining experience awaits you at this noisy storefront restaurant in Arlington Heights.
Indifferent, clueless waitstaff seem unwilling or unable to answer our basic foodie questions. "Is anything spicy", we ask. "Nothing spicy here" is the reply by the hostess/manager. That about sums it up.
We ordered the cactus salad which was mildly interesting but undone by the "cactus from the can". One entree, Chicken Fajita was stringy and dry an unfortunately consequence of serving it reheated. We also ordered Camarones Poblanos (Chile Shrimp) which was under-seasoned and served for some odd reason with what appeared to be Mexican rice-a-roni.
Portions are small, prices rather high so if you are expecting a great value to compensate for the mediocre work of the kitchen, look elsewhere mi amigo!
If you are looking for a taste of what good Mexican food could be, try Painted Burro or Tu Y Yo in Davis Square, and Taqueria Mexico in Waltham.
The bottom line is the staff at this restaurant gave up caring about the food they prepare and serve at this restaurant, long ago.
