The food was ikay, the service was wonderful, the place was attractive, but their policy to not write separate checks created problems. I run a MeetUp group and I have noticed when we calculate our own bills the amount is always lower than it should be. Some people are just plain cheap and must be only paying a portion of... More

My daughter wanted Mexican food for her 21st birthday. We come here several times a year and find it is the best sit down Mexican restaurant in the area. One basket of fresh chips is complimentary and the salsa is freshly made. I have had the fajitas which are excellent. Most dishes come with Mexican style rice and beans, portions... More

My wife and I have been very busy this week and we were out doing errands yet again. I suggested Bill,s but the waiting line was too long. We were quite surprised and pleased with our Mexican style breakfasts. Served piping hot! Open and bright place, they had some pancake specials they looked pretty good for breakfast as well.

Ambiance: It's a local eatery, not fancy. Bright, somewhat utilitarian tables and chairs. But clean, and plenty of space between the tables. The part of the restaurant with the television is well separated from the side that has no tv, which is good. Staff: Friendly and very attentive. Drink. Typical Mexican beers. Wine was only BV, but BV is OK.... More

Overall food was tasty and good as well as the service. Typical old-style Mexican food which was what we wanted this evening so it was not at all disappointing. Food was hot and exactly how we asked it to be prepared. Not rediculously huge portions like at some places. Good amount of food. Was a little pricey compared to some... More

Service was slow, cups & silverware seemed dirty. Food was good. Did the job for a very hungry & tired family but not a place you go back to. Oh & only first bowl of chips & salsa are free after that they charge. Overall ok.

We ending up eating breakfast here on a Saturday because the line at Bill's Cafe was long and this place was pretty empty. It was our first time here. The menu looked good and we were quickly seated and ordered. However, we waited nearly 30 minutes for our food. The place was not crowded and they had several servers. A... More
