We have been going to the Red Hen for years, way before they moved to their present location. We had seen an advertisement in the paper that they had a new chef and a new menu so were excited to see how it was. BIG MISTAKE! The food was absolutely awful.
Start with the salsa.. it tasted like it just came out of a No.10 can. Not fresh, not tasty, and really thick like thickeners had been added. Very bad. Their salsa used to be the best, fresh and tasty.
I ordered two tacos, one shredded beef and one chicken and they looked different but tasted the same..blah. No spice, no flavor. I would have added salsa but it was so bad it wouldn't have helped. The beans were watery, cold and tasteless and the rice (also cold) tasted like it had been boiled in tomato juice only for color, again blah!
My husband ordered the chile relleno which was cold along with his cold the rice and beans. The cheese was not even melted. At least they could have microwaved it to melt the cheese inside.
They are now using pablano/pastilla chiles in their rellenos which we usually prefer over anaheim chiles so that would have a plus if the food tasted good.
The one star is for the beer which was SUPPOSED to be cold and the service which was decent. As fast as the food came out it is hard to believe it could have gotten so cold. We will not be back. Their chef is certailny not an improvement.
