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

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.

Re: “Los Alamos Market y Cocina

Authentic with big flavones. Love the red pork- spicy+. Usually about 6 things on menu. True home cook'n by owners (Augustine) wife and mother. Über casual.

Re: “Bogey's Bar and Grill

Tried the Friday catfish special a couple of weeks ago and my mom had the shrimp special. Both were great -- very light breading, good crunch, nice portions, served hot, at a reasonable price. Server was very nice and checked back several times. We'll definitely go back.

Re: “El Camino Real

They have the best burritos in the city in my opinion. And the beans and rice served are delicious. In addition, the portions are generous which never hurts anything but the waistline. I've been a loyal customer since high school and will continue to be for as long as they're open. My only complaint would be the parking. :)

Re: “Cancun Fiesta Fresh

This place is horrible. I placed an order for beef burrito and they got it wrong and would not make the order right. Told me that I would have to repay for the order if I want it they way I originally ordered it. DO NOT SPEND YOUR MONEY AT THIS PLACE. THEY ARE RUNNING A RACKET. When have you ever heard of a restaurant messing up your order then wanting you to purchase again to make it right.

Re: “The Cashew

My Fiance and I were very excited to have our wedding reception here next March. Beautiful space, great view, excellent food and a 5-star wedding coordinator. We signed a contract with 2000 Grand on November 3, 2012, however the contract was signed not by our event coordinator, but by the owner. We knew nothing of this because we never saw the contract after the owner signed it...You could say we didn't mind because we were still in a pre-wedding bliss, full of fun planning for the best day of our lives. Needless to say, the bliss has worn off.

On November 12, 2012, we went in for a tasting to select the entree for the reception. Our great event coordinator, who we really liked and trusted, told us then and there that she was leaving and introduced us to her replacement. We were okay with it at the start, but after 5 days of no returned emails we knew this was a fail. We didn't trust the new coordinator to get the job done so we tried to pull out of the contract on November 21, 2012 by citing a clause that said something to the effect of "no changes are binding except in writing". But, to our dismay, the contract wasn't even signed by our coordinator, it was signed by the owner (someone the internet tells us is quite the bully). Remember the wedding bliss? Yeah we had no idea.

Another interesting point here is that, we asked them to take us off their calendar earlier this week so they can begin to re-lease the space, and sustain no damages by our situation. They refused and claimed they won't take us off until we pay our contract cancellation fee, which I will explain in the next paragraph. This is just silly business practice that can be simplified into plain-old bullying. They know that we are gone. They also know they won't make money if they don't re-lease the space. But they insist on hurting their own business to collect a measly $2,000 from a young engaged couple, us, who want out because they acted quite unprofessionally.

Long story short, lots of emails, a few interesting phone calls and some heartburn later, 2000 Grand delivered an ultimatum. Either we pay the 25% of the contract amount (which was a clause in the contract that we understand, but we claim the whole agreement is voided by their unprofessional actions) or they hand us over to the collection rats.

I would strongly advise any prospective event-hosting people out there that even though the space is good, the food is good and the folks seem nice, the current management here can be accurately described as crooks. I hope this post encourages you to make a wise decision of where you take your business.

Re: “Torreon

Mixed reviews, just completed my first and maybe last visit to Torreon.
Nice ambiance, but a "booth" is really a table with half of its seats against the wall.
Server was very good. Chips were excellent and warm, the salsa was good.
I ordered a margarita, "Our fish bowl margarita (house blend) is good" Yuk! It tasted odd, if not weird. And, with an after burn on the tongue. I'll have a regular one, please.
A "fish bowl" of ice with a little liquid in it arrived. It tasted like a regular margarita. Ok.
I ordered the chicken fajita. My companion, two beef enchiladas, "no onions".
The enchiladas were described to me as "basic". When asked, "good, bad or indifferent"? She replied "indifferent".
The fajita tasted good, but was more or less, middle of the road as far as fajitas go. The chicken, although not completely "dry", was not moist either.
The big shock came when the check arrived. Food prices were reasonable, but they charged $18.00 for 2 margaritas! "You had top shelf". I never requested "top shelf", and there was absolutely nothing special about the two glasses loaded with ice and very little fluid, until some ice melted, that I received. They made no effort to reconsider.
So, as I told the hostess, food was ok, but I'll not be back for $9 margaritas.

Re: “Mama Tio's

Great food, cheapest drinks in town and best burgers in town. I know Mexican Restaurant and burgers sounds crazy but for five dollars you get a double quarter pounder and fries. Also they serve great breakfast for ridiculously low prices. Service is friendly but slow.
