Re: “Taco Bueno

I feel bad for Mike. That is not the norm for Taco Bueno, at least not the one on hwy in Blue Springs which I go to regularly. I honestly prefer Taco Bueno to Taco Bell because their food is always fresher, better tasting, far less greasy and better "feeling" when ingested (i.e. no upset stomach like Taco Bell can do to me). Anyway, I digress. There has been the rare occasion that I have received poorly made food and it does seem to be only in the evening that this happens. Perhaps it is a crew not watched over by a manager? Perhaps their evening shift is harder to staff therefore they always have inexperienced staff at that time? All I know is Mike's experience here is not on par with the standard quality, presentation or delivery of food for which I have come to know and love Taco Bueno. The only issue I have ever had with this Taco Bueno is there was a period when the service was subpar and staff exceptionally rude (I was practically thrown my food at the drive thru at one point with the girl simply saying, "here" and nothing more). They have since restaffed and service is better once again, but the food has always been good and if there are any complaints about it they have always been happy to reimburse or replace the meal with an apology and a smile.

Re: “Los Tules Mexican Restaurant

One of the few, authentic, family Mexican restaurants in the city. Garlic shrimp is fantastic, and his Talapia is excellent and a bargain compared to fish restaurants. Any egg dish is also very good. When the twin sisters owned it, they were open until 3:00 am! Back in the day, it was a rocking joint with great food. Chava was their cook for ten years and so the transition was smooth when he an Marie bought the place. I question whether the above reviewer was dealing with Marie: I know her a very sweet and accommodating. Enjoy!

Re: “Ponak's

The best Mexican place in a neighborhood filled with Mexican places. The food, while more Tex-Mex than authentic, is flavorful, plentiful and inexpensive. The margaritas are nectar from the agave gods.

Re: “Los Tules Mexican Restaurant

Extremely poor customer service. The owners wife acted extremely low class cheap and negative with a bad attitude. My husband and I are never going back. Yuck.

Re: “Dos de Oros

We eat at a lot of Mexican restaurants - Never again here. We had lunch today at Dos de Oros. First we noticed that the chips were fresh out of the bag and cold. The salsa had less spice/heat that tomato soup. We asked if they had a spicier salsa. We got about two tablespoons. That was very good. We had chicken spinach enchilada and fish tacos. Again, no flavor. The meals were over priced by a dollar or two. We are still looking for a neighbor restaurant. Dos de Oros is not it. We have never had such poor Mexican food.

Re: “El Patron Cocina & Bar

Loved it way cool ambience. Mango margaritas the very best. Taco Tuesday...no point in cooking when you can get 2 huge tacos for $1.99 each. Thinnest chips next to Jose Peppers, but you get two types of salsa here.

Re: “Taco Bueno

The single worst meal I've eaten in the past decade.

My wife and I swung through Taco Bueno last night around 8:30PM for a few tacos and some chips as we were sort of in a hurry to get to a friend's place to watch a fight on TV.

I ordered 2 veggie burritos, 1 steak soft taco, and some chips n' queso. The price was acceptable - 10 bucks. The gentleman at the window handed us our bag of food and said "Come on back n' see us!". Welp, I can tell you right now that I'll never be "seeing ya" ever again in my life. I'd rather starve to death.

Here are my issues:

- We took the taco/burritos out of the bag, and the paper wrap around them was sopping and dripping like a baby's soiled diaper, all over my car and onto my lap. ALL OF the food was terribly wrapped and sopping all over the place. The burritos weren't even wrapped. It was a loosely soggy mess. The interior of my car is covered in disgusting swampy black beans and sauce. Thanks for that!

-After having to deal with all that, we gave the food a chance. The burritos were filled with bland beans, very little sauce, and overcooked *crunchy* rice. I took about 2 bites and literally threw it out of the window as I passed a raucous Kauffman Stadium. Worst burrito I've ever had. My wife had one bite and tossed hers.

-Then I moved on to the soft steak taco. It was pretty much a Hail Mary at that point because I had just played a rock n' roll show at Blue Springs Fall Fest and probably burned 1000 calories - I was pretty hungry and in need of sustenance. Anyway, the steak taco was cold, bland and flaccid. Just no effort whatsoever put into the preparation or food at all. I realize it's fast food, but we were hoping for a little bit better than Taco Bell. Just for the record, it was worse than any Taco Bell meal I've ever eaten. So, in summary, the Taco and burritos ended up on the George Brett Super Highway.

-The small chips n' queso were ok. Definitely worth the 1.79 we spent on them. The guy at the window was friendly but rushed us out of there. He and whoever was in the kitchen clearly didn't care about the food they were handing out representing your establishment. You were also out of cinnamon chips.

I've got half the mind to call and send Taco Bueno the bill for shampooing and cleaning the interior of my trashed car for the mess their food created. Lazy work. Wlil not be visiting this or ANY Taco Bueno ever again as long as I live.

Re: “Dos de Oros

Excellent food, service and ice cream! Try the coconut ice cream, and the tequila ice cream. (non-alcoholic). Not the cloying sweet and rich American style ice cream, but rather grainy and pure delicioso!
The Pozole is the best, be sure to add lime and cilantro and put the meat chunks into the corn tortillas and chow down as you spoon up the soup.
Please go, the crowds keep getting larger and larger, join in with those of us who love dos de oros!

Re: “Panzon's

This place was absolutely terrible. When we arrived, there were several people waiting to be seated, yet there were no employees up front to help them. After about 10 minutes, some one showed up and started taking people to tables. After we were seated it took an additional 10 minutes for a server to come take our order. 15 minutes later she came back to tell us that she had lost our orders, so we had to order a second time. When our food finally arrived, it looked disgusting, and tasted bland. I will never be returning to this restaurant, and I suggest anyone thinking about going to stay well clear.

Great live music on their rooftop on weekends, and it's free!

Re: “DiCarlo's Mustard Seed Mexican-Americana Restaurant & Bar (CLOSED)

Not only is their food horrible, they have the rudest staff!! Very unfriendly and they charge 18% gratuity to your bill when it is un deserving. I DO NOT recommend this place!!!

Re: “Margarita's

This place does not want to serve African-Americans. Please do not support Margaritas. Me and my family was told we would not be served and could not come back simply because we wanted an exchange and was not happy with the food or service and another group of African-Americans that sat next to us was treated the same way.
