“Great Value/Great Taste”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

The Hilton Garden Grille and Bar offers bargain dinners that taste great! They are tasty, quick, healthy. The blackened fish with no blacken....equals grilled fish. They have a white sauce to put on the fish and the rice if you want that is marvelous! Nice array of vegetables too.

The General Tso's spicy chicken has great taste, and won't burn your mouth with spice. Maybe just a bit salty, but it is really good.

The pork chops with mash potatos and gravy, as well as corn is filling and delicious.
All these meals are just $6.95!!

If you want to have something off the regular menu, try their chicken fajatas. Lots of chicken, vegetables and flavor. This wonderful sizzling meal is $11.99. Again great value. Ask for a couple extra tortillas, as the two they serve with all this food are not enough.

They have an excellent wait staff that is anxious to please. Migdelader, Francisco, Rosealva, and Valentina and Eric are great.

“Good food, good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2014

We didn't have a bad meal at this restaurant and we ate there often during our 6 day stay at the hotel where it's located. The breakfast's are delicious and you can't beat the dinner specials for variety and pricing. It could get a little noisy in the evenings but there are a lot of "winter Texans" there during this time of year.
