Last time I was there, a server dropped napkins on the floor, picked them up from the floor and wrapped them around silverware intended for customers. I mentioned this was a health code violation; his response was, "Oh?" like it had never occurred to him; he then unwrapped them, discarded the napkins that had been on the floor BUT NOT THE SILVERWARE THAT HAD NOW TOUCHED THEM, and proceeded to wrap new napkins around them. I'll never eat there again.
By far, our favorite restaurant, Mexican or otherwise. The Woodland Park restaurant certainly qualifies in the "Hole in the Wall" category, but there is nothing second rate about the food or the service. We went there on the strong recommendation of our friends and we pass that same recommendation on to others.
Real ceviche so good so frech and i dont work there or know anybody!!
Don't waste your time or money if you expect good service, you won't find it here!! The waitresses act like even the simplest of request is a bother. We won't be back, there are too many good Mexican food restaurants in the area!!
Call me suspicious, but do you think some or all of these comments were written by the people who either own or work at this place?
Best Mex downtown if not citywide. Simple as that.
never had to wait no 40 minutes for an order ever....even when the place is packed...which is all the time
love...love ...love this place
I love this place!!! The food is fresh, with true mexican flare!! The people that work there want nothing more but for you to enjoy your food and expierence there. I would truly reccomend Amanda's Fonda to anyone looking for a great meal, great time, and a full stomach...
Not sure if they are competent. First they ran out of shrimp. They took our orders and came back to the table 40 minutes after we ordered and told us they ran out of chicken, so members of our party had to reorder. Served another party member a frozen margarita and forgot to put in the alcohol. Very very slow. Do you guys know what you are doing?
Love the "venue". Great decor and setting. The chips were thin, crisp and tasty but the salsa could use a little more flavor and heat - it had a very tomatoey taste. Loved the basmati/saffron style rice - a good mix with the mexican food. Beans were tasty but could use a little jalapeno or green chili. I had the enchildas with a type of "Alfredo" sauce - very rich and yummy. I definately would go again and again! I'm so glad this place opened! The hostess and wait staff were awesome!
This is the worst representation of Mexican food I have ever experienced.
yep, used to love this restaurant, now not so much. Went there for cinco de mayo - although you would never even know it was cinco de mayo because staff or restaurant didn't even seem to acknowledge it - and they no longer have frozen margaritas... i have never heard of a mexican restaurant not having frozen margaritas. this is what i always ordered, but no more?? So we left. They didn't seem to care... kinda sad.
Pero A pelon le falta cocinar más las papas
I Love it, Real Mexican food, fresh, and tasty, good service, good prices. I Love it.
Fantastic food and the friendliest cook/owner around.
Love this place! They have the best guacamole and carne esada! Truly the authentic...not like your chain restaurants at all!!!
Superb food and friendly service. I like that they have entrees that are authentic Mexican but not the usual burrito/taco/enchilada fare that's everywhere else. Try the pollo con arroz (chicken and rice), or any of the seafood offerings. Margaritas are fine but nothing to write home about; the usual selection of Mexican beers.
Oops, looks like one star is the minimum. FOOD POISONING ! Have gone here few times, was OK. However on 3/11/11 we had fish tacos and chile rellenos/ steak tacos. Mine was OK. A few hours after eating, my daughter a healthy twenty-year-old, with no food allergies, got violently sick with vomiting and diarrhea all night. She had not eaten since 10:30 that morning- so no other causes. She has had the same item there before. The following morning I called and talked to manager. She seemed neither surprised nor concerned, saying that stuff is going around. ER Doc said if you get sick within a few hours of eating-it was the meal that got you. Looks like stuff is going around _IN THE KITCJEN_.
Have since talked to local neighbors who skip this place.
Poblano's needs a surprise visit from Health Dept!! You decide, whether you want to roll the dice here! An elderly person could get finished off by food-borne pathogens.
