After reading all the excellent Trip Advisor reviews I was anxious to try Taco Mesa for lunch today and as I was walking up it looked like a neat place and I was getting even more excited but upon walking inside the excitement quickly left.
1. They don't have waiters and waitresses, you have to walk up to a counter and place your order. Once your order is placed you then have to stand there wondering if/when your order has come up. I ordered nacho's and after watching them sit on a tray for a while I had to ask the guy behind the counter if they were mine, he said they were. No telling how long they would have sat there had I not said something.
2. Seating is very limited and unfortunately people who are further back in line will send their friends to steal tables from people who are further up in line leaving them wtihout a table, including me. This is just rude. The people who are in line first should get first dibs on the tables, period.
3. Maybe I should have ordered something other than nachos but they were just OK. There was limited cheese on them and the blackened chicken was dry.
I don't know, I hate to judge a place on one visit but I was just very unimpressed both with the food, the service and the other customers. If you're looking for a place where you can sit down, have a few chips and salsa and a few drinks with some good mexican food, I really do not think this place is that place. I honestly wish I had eaten somewhere else.
