Husband and a friend ate here one night and 'bland' is the best word to describe this food. Nothing special. Seems to always be busy at lunchtime, however, for dinner he and his friend were the only ones there at about 6 p.m. Service ok...More

I don't really want to bash any place. We have tried the 86 three times in the last several years and found the food to be bland. My personal opinion is that the food served here is Americanized Mexican fare like I would find in...More

Very average in selection, presentation and flavor. Even the decor is less than stellar.
