 I had a craving for Mexican food the other night so my partner in food and I went to Hacienda Tequila. Located on Clovis ave between Barstow and Shaw in the old Casa Grande
building this is definitely a place to try!!!

Service:
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the service here!!! From the moment we walked in we were treated to happy, fun banter from the hostess as well as the server. Service is on point, water, and cocktails right away as well as recommendations on the menu.

5 Forks!

Food:
Right away we were served chips and salsa and this wonderful slaw that consisted of cabbage and pico. Delicious!
We ordered the nachos for an appetizer as well as margaritas. The cocktails were off the forkin hook! Delicious, not too sweet concoctions with our choice of tequila, served in tall frosted glasses. The nachos came right away and they were yummy as well!! Just enough toppings to scoop up, add the slaw salsa and its heaven!!
We both ordered combination plates. I had the enchiladas, one beef one cheese and a chimichanga. While the ground beef in my enchilada was a little greasy and the cheese enchilada was a little greasy as well the chimichanga was fabulous!!!! The refried beans were smooth and creamy and the rice was light and fluffy. My partner in food had a taco, chimichanga and a burrito. She opted for the shredded chicken. It was cooked just right and the taco was light and crispy. The burrito was a little heavy but still very good.
The portions were very large so we had plenty of leftovers for later!!

4 1/2 Forks

Overall:
Wonderful place and we will be back, a lot!! The service is what puts this place over the top! I have always said that great service is key to a restaurant’s success and this place is on the right forkin track!!!

4 1/2 forks!!

Till next time…eat well my friends,

Eastern Europe meets the Middle East

 
Hi fellow foodies!!! Many of you may have been past this place several times and not even know it is there! It is in the Walmart shopping center between Arsenio’s and the liquor store! It is a quaint little market jam packed with specialty items such as dolmas, (stuffed grape leaves), yogurt dressings, fresh and frozen middle eastern pastas, and plenty of fresh baked pita bread.

Service:
I was greeted with a smile and right away was asked if I needed help deciding what I wanted. The young woman was very helpful and pleasant.

4 Forks

Food:
We decided on the Beef Lula Wrap and the Beef Shish Plate. The beef shish plate was fabulous. It came with my choice of homemade rice or bulgur pilaf, garlic sauce and salad. Large, tender chunks of perfectly seasoned beef cooked just right. The pilaf was also wonderful. And the garlic sauce was over the forkin moon!! Unfortunately, our other choice, the Beef lula wrap was not so fabulous. The menu states that it is your choice of meat with garlic sauce and salad all wrapped in a lavash or pita pocket.  While the meat was, again, delicious the rest of the wrap was a very sad disappointment. Huge chunks of cucumber with a smattering of garlic sauce. No lettuce or tomatoes as was stated on the menu. And it was extremely soggy. We also picked up some Dolmas and some cucumber sauce for dipping as well as some fresh pitas. The dolmas were great and the sauce was also over the top forkalicious!

3 Forks

Overall:
This place is all over the plate. The biggest negative I have about them is that the wait time for our order was ridiculously long, over 25 mins. That seems to be the normal as there were others who came to pick up food that had called ahead due to this fact. Other customers told me to always call ahead to avoid the wait. But the food was, for the most part great. I will try them again!
