I went to this place thinking the food was going to be good however it was worse than Tex Mex. The drinks were not good at all. This place is very commercial and doesn’t taste like authentic Mexican food.

We had high hopes for this restaurant just north of the Mexican border. We tried several different items and found everything to be just average. Our server, although not busy, hardly ever visited our table. I would not stop here again.

If you visit Las Americas outlet, you can easily find Achiote. We ordered 5 menus. Of them, cow tongue and tilapia cuisine were best. Steamed vegetables was little hard.

Went to Las America’s Premium Outlets and wanted a sit down meal. In an area ruled by fast food, Achiote’s Restaurant is a real standout gem. Waiter Antonio was knowledgeable and accommodating, making sure my requests were honoured. The tuna was seared to perfection, the cilantro dressing was superb, and the house made sauces were outstanding. The pollo mole was very good, big portion. Clean environment, efficient staff with friendly personalities. Thank you for a great dining experience!
