We were looking forward to a good California/Mexican meal not too far from our hotel. The reviews of this restaurant indicated a good, authentic menu, but we found the food fairly bland and were disappointed that we had chosen this particular restaurant. The staff were very friendly, but it didn't make up for the food.

The staff was really attentive and the food was amazing. As a vegetarian, they were really helpful in helping me to find something at the menu.

Great authentic dishes in a lively ambiance. Ensconced in an atypical neighborhood. Try the Mexican coffee - adult coffee.

This place is in an area that sorely limits is potential. However, if you're adventurous, they serve authentic Mexican food at reasonable prices.

Lunch specials are great and come with a drink. All lunch specials are very reasonably priced! Ricarda, the waitress, always makes sure your bowl of chips is never empty as well as the tasty salsa!

At first, it didn't look like much (on the outside); but a local business we visited recommended it, so we stopped in. The place was nice and the staff was very friendly and upbeat. The food was very good and pretty inexpensive. I had the lunch special Carne Asada Taco/Cheese Enchilada Combo. The tortilla for the taco was a little... More

We have been visiting Tropical Mexico almost every Friday night for about 20-years. This place is like our second home and we always find this place to be welcoming and friendly. The food is reasonably priced and the drinks are great. Yes, the Margaritas come pre-mixed but you can order a handmade cocktail of your preference as we do it... More

Was told that the food here was great, but it was good solid standard Mexican fare, with nothing that would make me go back food wise..... on the other hand, what terrific service, friendly, fast, but not rushed, attentive, but not overbearing.... cudo's to the service!

The food was really good. The margaritas were pre-mixed out of the soda type machine. Needless to say they were not with the $6.75 a piece that we paid.
