Positive: Guacamole Negative: Food quality, food temp, lack of food, drinks, price, bathrooms, atmosphere and false advertisement.Being a small business owner myself, I hate giving a bad review because I understand how hard it is to build a company in this social media driven market, but… I will not be dining at Tachita’s Buffet ever again. We accidentally stumbled upon this new restaurant that apparently opened 2 months ago when going to the UPS store and thought it was Mexican buffet, so we asked the man smoking out front. He handed us a flyer saying it was mostly Chinese with Mongolian grill. We had just eaten, so made plans to eat there the following evening since it was late. We arrived at 7pm the next evening and were the only customers. The owner told us to sit at a table while they made fresh food to bring out. (Really strange to be sitting at a buffet not allowed to eat.) A child asked us what we wanted to drink and I inquired if the drinks were included in the buffet price or extra? The child started reciting all the drink options and again I asked if the drinks were an additional price or included with the buffet and he then said they were included. (When the bill came, they were actually an additional charge.) Furthermore, the soda tasted horrible and kept wondering if diet was mixed in and we had to ask for napkins.They brought out a small portion of a few dishes of 3 pieces each or a fresh scoop and added them to the old food already on the buffet. There was no Mongolian grill as the flyer promoted. Another customer came in while we were filling our plates and he continually kept commenting about the poor quality food, the lack of food, the temperature of the food (we agreed with all concerns.) He eventually complained to the owner and left without paying. The owner came over and said, “Do you guys like the food? That guy just complained.” Obviously, now we feel bad for the restaurant that is not going to make it, plus after witnessing that and decide not to criticize. We instead say we understand how difficult it is to start a new business and wished them luck. Something immediately upset my stomach and when I went to use the restroom, the floor was completely flooded and I was wearing sandals with socks so now my socks and bottom of my pants are soaked (35* outside,) I didn’t notice the wet floor sign in the middle of the floor until I had already entered and turned the light on. We stayed over an hour killing time and only saw that one other customer the entire visit. Several employees and family members were coming and going making a lot of commotion. The only positive thing I have to say about this experience was that they had guacamole on the salad bar and I love guacamole, but not worth $23 plus tip for 2 people to eat. FYI: there was “cheesecake” but I spit my bite back out as absolutely none of the food was edible. To be fair, I didn’t try much as the majority looked too horrible to risk. We had Wendy’s drive thru after leaving.
05/01/2015La Fuente Mexican Restaurant
It used to be a good restaurant, but it has changed. The tamale was a roll of corn meal but only about an eighth inch of the tamale on each end had meat with a little hamburger and sauce put on top of it. When the manager was approached he stated that we needed to understand that people make tamale's different ways. A roll of cornmeal is not a tamale! It would have been more appropriate to name it a corn meal roll with meat sauce on top. The manager on duty stated he didn't know the name of the owner. That's highly unlikely. When a waitress tried to state the owner's name, the manager told her to be quiet. He must be ashamed of the owner and it is questionable if the owner was represented by the management and cook. The best tasting thing there were the chips, salsa, beans, and rice. (All are easily made at home and I was looking forward to good Mexican food.) Otherwise the food was very poor. The waitress assigned to our table had difficulty understanding English. .
