Re: “Torreon Mexican Restaurant

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: “Sabor y Sol

We were told that the state of Kansas would no longer allow the restaurant to sell pitchers of beer. What?

Re: “Jalisco Restaurant

This food at this restaurant is nothing special. Not terrible, but nothing to go back for. The main reason I won't go back is because of the filth. It looks like it hasn't changed or been cleaned since the 70's. I do not recommend spending time or money here.

Re: “Cantina del Ray (CLOSED)

The only thing we liked was the salsa. The chips and taco shells were store-bought, not fresh. I had a chicken hard-shell taco that came out cold (none of the cheese on it melted at all) and leaking water. The shell was just soggy on the bottom. The burrito was just above room temperature, and nothing special. Lack of flavor to everything except the salsa.

Re: “54th Street Grill and Bar

When they first opened this 54th ST. location on NE Barry Rd. near Liberty, it was one of only a few restaurants in that area. Now it's very built up with many choices. Many have come and several have gone in the past 10 years. The 54th St. seems to attract the shoppers from the near by strip malls and Wal-Mart. In the early years, this 54th ST. was at least OK, nothing special, but decent enough and closer to Kearney where we live than most other restaurants. But we stopped going there after a waiter, botched our large group order. Example: "Oh you wanted the salad before your meal?" Complaining only got us a gift certificate for $10. off the next visit. No thanks. On an earlier trip, our waiter asked us to give him his tip before we were done, because he was ending his shift. Amazing! To be fair, the Liberty area is service worker challenged. and good help is hard to find and harder to keep given the low wages and poor management in many of these corporate chain boxes. The food at 54th St. is similar to other family American fare style boxes like Appplebee's, etc. We usually opt for The Corner Cafe which is a few feet away from the 54th St. location.

Re: “Coach's Bar and Grill

It doesn't seem that anyone who cares, looks athe the food before it's served to the customers. Mistakes on every plate that was served. The list is too long to list all. They make their own potato chips, they were served un-seasoned and either over cooked or almost raw. Garlic toast served with ceasar salad, room temp, untoasted, bread w/ garlic butter on it. I could go on. I wouldn't go again there for food. Everyone sitting at the bar seemed to be having a good time.
