“Better than average”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

This place had a bustling atmosphere the night we ate there. It's a sports bar so there were a couple of big screen TVs showing games. I was also intrigued by the wall decor. Several large art pieces with a Hispanic flavor decorated the walls and appeared to be by the same artist. There was also a cross collection and a mask collection, both interesting.The food was good and plentiful, but not unique. Service was a little slow but the wait staff was paying attention; they were just a little slammed. Pricing was mid range, and I thought that, overall it was a good value.

“Satisfying!”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Last night (Friday) we stopped at Hacienda for an early dinner. We hadn't realized it was a sports bar, so the vibe was lively. The multiple screens entertained everyone while we waited for our dinner. The service was great, sort of like the old really expensive restaurants where the servers stop multiple times to satisfy our every need. The food was delicious and everyone cleaned their plates. There is only one odd critique we had. The Strawberry Margarita's were spicy. Like someone put a slug of hot sauce in them. The regular margarita's are wonderful and come in a large glass. All in all we can highly recommend this restaurant.

“Service was really lacking and the food was mediocre”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

I am not sure if we hit it on an off day but this was a disappointment. The hostess/waitress never smiled or made eye contact. It seemed as if we were bothering her by being there. The chile verde didn't have verde sauce, the sauces were wrong on two other dishes and the enchiladas were cold. Probably our last visit here.

“Mui Malo!!!”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Our favorite Mexican restaurant in BBV recently closed (La Montanas) my (adult) son asked where he and his friends could go because favorite closed. I mentioned I'd heard both good and bad about Hacienda, but worth a try. This review is from him: OMG, he says it was the worst service he's ever had. He and his group were forgotten in the bar, had to get their own chips & salsa, when finally seated, seated on the chilly patio asked person seating them if heater could be turned on - said they didn't know, finally the ladies (in my sons group) when to the car and got blankets. Every order at the table was incorrect.BTW the heater was finally turned on (with the push of a button). Seriously, the staff totally didn't care about the service - will never go again.
