We usually go to El Meson in Hixson, which has good service and good food. Because we were in the Hamilton Mall area, we decided to try that one. Awful! Soggy tostadas for my husband. Soggy enchiladas for me. The waiter failed to ask me what kind of sauce I wanted on my enchiladas (I had a spinach, a beef, and a cheese), and I ended up with red sauce on everything (would have preferred white on the spinach enchilada). Not enough to complain about, but a symptom of only average service.
I was also disappointed with my margarita. Forgot to say "frozen," and, again, the waiter didn't ask. Another symptom. As a result I was served one on the rocks. I did, however, ask for lots of salt. Got a drink with lots of ice cubes and almost no salt.
When I asked for mango salsa in addition to the regular one they offer, the waiter did suggest that we also try the tomatillo salsa. That's a point in his favor.
On the way out, I stopped at the ladies' room. Filthy! My husband and I always order the same things, so we can make a good comparison of the two restaurants. Will stick to the Hixson site from now on--where the service is better, the food is fresher, and the restrooms are cleaner!
