The food & service here are very good. Masks must be worn when not at your table, but we were seated at a comfortable booth with very high backs, so we felt very safe. The menu is extensive & really has something for everyone.

How disappointing can those sides be though!? I don't think a kids menu meal was that small. I didn't get half of a scoop of either beans nor rice. We've came here for years and I've never been so disappointed in my take out order. NEVER AGAIN

If you're in this area looking for Mexican food definitely 100 percent eat here. The food is absolutely amazing delicious fresh and authentic. Not the standard Mexican fare you find in a lot of other Mexican restaurants. It was extremely clean well decorated well maintained the staff was pleasant and friendly and very happy. I can't tell you enough times the food was phenomenal you will not regret eating here and we came and got a lunch portion that is equivalent to everywhere else is dinner portion. My wife loves Mexican food we eat a lot of Mexican food she says this is in her top three ever and it's honestly the cheapest we've ever paid for a meal at a Mexican restaurant in Ohio,

The food was good and the portion was big. The margarita was cold and refreshing but quite strong. The service was good and it was very clean.

I was really disappointed in the quality of service and the food on my last visit. The service was very slow and I didn't feel like anyone really cared. I ordered the vegetarian fajita skillet and it was pretty much just peppers and onions with a sprinkle.of mushrooms. I literally had 2 small pieces of broccoli in the entire skillet. Additionally, the food wasn't very hot and it was greasy. This was my second experience here where the quality has been sub par. I may start going to El Jalapeno or La Isla instead.

I just ordered $50 worth of take-out to feed my family dinner, and it was awful! Everything looked as if it had sat for 2 hours when we opened it. Chips were terribly stale. And my sons order didn't even look like it was supposed to. I could call and complain, but who has the time to hope the restaurant will rectify the problem? Not when you're feeding a hungry family of 5. Could've gone to Taco Bell for that quality for $20 cheaper! Disappointing!

The last two times we went here we got the same server and he is terrible. First time we thought maybe just a fluke but was worse tonight. He literally almost threw are good on the table and Ran off so quick we couldn't even ask him for hot sauce. He never came back. My Fiance's dish was terrible and I finally had to flag down another server to go get him. Terrible service..

Sort of frustrating. We ordered 2 takeout margaritas a week ago just fine. Then tonight, we tried to order 2 more, but was told I have to order an entree or an appetizer if we wanted the drinks to go. So, we ordered the quesidilla de pollo (that we didn't want), and after having to wait awhile, it came out wet, slimy, and really sloppy. Ugh.

Ordered.off the menu was charged differently then what I wanted then charged more money when i complained. Will never go back again. Manager was very rude towards us. Also.its states on the door that no.partys larger than 10 people allowed and masks are required. They had a party of 50 people go into the back room and most were not wearing masks.

I love El Terero, we used to frequent this restaurant before the Virus. We went for the first time last Friday, we were really disappointed. Normally our food comes out so hot you can't touch the plate, everyone's food was cold. My husband even said, normally my dish comes out sizzling and you can hear it coming... it didn't sizzle, it wasn't very hot at all. This won't stop us from a future visit, maybe it was just an off night, which is unusual. The waitress was very nice and did a good job.

The food is bland and flavorless. Do yall even use seasonings?! The chicken and seafood both taste like they come from a can. My taco salad was more like sour cream and lettuce soup, they forgot the beans. The seafood tacos were one of the most awful things I've ever tasted. We would have told our server had he ever came back. We should have just left when we saw all the dried salsa on the menus. We didnt eat our food or even ask for to go boxes for my dogs it was that bad. I really wanted to like this place but it's just not good.

I did take pictures of our meals but they are blurry. My daughter & I had lunch with my best friend. This was our first time in this restaurant. I wish I could remember our waitress' name. She was fantastic! She is obviously a people person. Her patience alone should garner her a raise. I realize that would mean raising prices a bit, but hey, I don't mind paying a bit more for good food & good service. I ordered the nachos & cheese meal. We all ordered something different so we could share with each other. I am sure we will be making another visit in the near future.

We ordered the Fajitas Texanas for 2 as usual and despite my huge appetite my wife and I couldn't finish it all. It was served still sizzling by a courteous server and we topped of this delicious meal with fried ice cream and enjoyed every bite. The restrooms were clean like the rest of the restaurant and all the staff members we talked to were friendly and polite. I had ice water and my wife had a diet soda. Our entire bill before tip was roughly $38 and I felt it was worth every penny.

Review №38

I feel this places quality is slipping at least with takeout orders. After receiving my takeout I got a call saying they forgot a chimichanga. So I go back to get it. When I get home I noticed our wet burritos had no cheese sauce on them. The chimichangas were over cooked and had a hard crunchy side. My fajita texanas came with no tortilla wraps! I frequent here regularly. My bill was $68 and some change. All I'm asking for is a better attention to detail. Your food when done correctly is amazing. Dont let your quality slip with careless mistakes.

Review №39

My burrito supreme burrito meat was cold and the tortilla doe was soggy on the bottom like the doe had been refrigerated and not cooked all the way through. My friend's taco salad had water in the bottom of the taco shell. The waitress at the door who took the order was unfriendly and did not have a face mask on. A second waitress did not have a mask either. I will not return. Why would I?

Not bad. Good food. Fair prices. Clean. The bathroom was clean. HOWEVER, it's Warren. And sometimes when you've worked hard all week you just don't want to be around it. It's not the restaurants fault...and we felt bad for some of the waiters. Good for them for keeping up, though.

My boyfriend and I went here around 3pm on a Friday. Their lunch specials ended at 3pm, so we weren't able to get them, but they were priced from $5.99-8.99. Both he and I got the Fried Burrito off of the dinner menu and it's probably the cheapest meal they have at $6.99. It was really good food. They also do the classic chips and salsa and their salsa is amazing. Lastly, it was during happy hour (Mon-Sat 2:30pm-5:30pm) and I got a regular margarita for $2.99. We both got water, too. Our bill was $21 with tip. Big restaurant, lots of different seating options. Good service. Clean facility. Definitely would go again.

Review №74

The wait for our food was excessively long. When our food came out, two out of the four orders were wrong. I did not send back because they took forever getting it to us the first time. There was workers walking all around and lounging in the front lobby. I always had to get my waitress for refills. After they cleared our table I had to go to the back and find my waitress for the check. Really bad service from K--na. We won't be back. Good luck with the business, if you keep sending the wrong food to customers you won't last.

Possibly the worst restaurant experience we've ever had. We arrived tonight and were seated promptly. We waited about 15 minutes to receive our drinks. After ordering we waited over AN HOUR for our food. At about the hour mark I asked to speak to a manager to which i was told he's unavailable. I asked the waiter about our food and was told, yeah, the kitchens backed up. And for the icing on the cake, when our meals arrived they were nowhere close to being hot!!!

Very underwhelmed with the service and food for that matter. For starters, it's approximately noon not busy and I was sat in a back corner of the restaurant in front of the exit door facing the wall. I ordered no broccoli or mushrooms in my fajita order, it came with broccoli in it, no onions what so ever, also the beans were extremely scorched. The food is extremely bland it feels very rushed. My waitress hadn't returned for a refill either. Top it off with having to swat away flies, This service is just not up to par.
