I had no idea there was such a thing as gross mexican foo. This was the worst mexican food we have ever had...Trust me do not waste your money on the groupon that is available right now. On top of that they are very misleading when it comes to the bill for the groupon. The food has no flavor and the people there are just rude. Just a warning but it is pretty bad...
This is an amazing place!.
I had dinner last weekend there. I honestly had one of the best mexican dinners I've ever had.
I had ceviche tostadas first. Delicious. I can't believe how tasty and flavorful they were. Then time for drinks: staff was really friendly and suggested a special margarita with blue curazao. Gosh, i've had several margaritas lately, but this was by far the best.
Then I had shrimps and chicken tacos. Tender chicken, perfectly cooked shrimp.
I was very pleased by the food, the excellent and friendly service. I won't hesitate to come back soon.
SOOO GOOOODDDD.. The food and the service is amazing! My family and i loved it. Our waiter not only was friendly and told us what he recommended but my 2 year old also loved the whole crew! they were all smiling at him and making him laugh. it was really enjoyable for the entire family. I ordered the carne asada which was outstanding and my husband ordered the camarones a la diabla which he also enjoyed very much. He said the shrimp was cooked perfectly! We will definitely be coming back again!
WORST MEXICAN RESTAURANT IN WA.
I agree with the last review from j1959. If I could give this place zero star, I would. Food is obviously previously frozen taste to it (chewy and flavorless chicken). People there barely spoke enough English to understand that it's rude to talk about people in Spanish when Spanish is taught in our schools in the USA.
Our drinks had a terrible strong smell of the dishwashing detergent still on our glasses. And then we had to wait for a good 35 minutes just to get our bill to get the hell out of there.
And what really cracked us up was when we over heard the owners talking about how they had the best Mexican food around. What a joke, are these Mexicans high?
This place is horrible!.
I would give it no stars if I could. Apparently I had forgotten that I had eaten at the Woodinville location this summer. I found the food there to be totally flavorless. I was also very annoyed because it was a rather hot day. They seated us right by the door which was open because they were going in and out of it to serve the people outside.
They put chicken in their bean dip. I HATE chicken. The bean dip also had a really strange flavor. The beans were actually the only food I got which did have a flavor. But it was not a good flavor. Most of my meal went untouched as did my daughter's and her friend's. My husband had the whole tilapia and he ate it. He had no complaints.
I just saw the Mountlake Terrace location online and assumed it was a new restaurant. I did see that there is one in Woodinville as well but given the good reviews that it got, I did not make the connection that it was the same place.
The Mountlake Terrace one is in the old Canyon's restaurant. My parents ate at it once. My mom hated it and my dad said it was okay. So my mom asked if we wanted to eat there today. I said we did. Mistake!
When the bean dip arrived, I had a bad feeling. It had chicken in it. And once again it tasted really weird. We couldn't eat it.
The salsa was plentiful but totally flavorless as was the pico de gallo I asked for. My dad asked if they had something hotter. The waiter said he didn't know but he would ask. He then brought out something in a squeeze bottle. It was an odd color. My dad tried mixing some in the salsa but didn't like it. He said it was very hot but it wasn't a good flavor.
I had ground beef tacos. I could make tacos at home with plain ground beef and no seasonings what ever. They would taste better than these. There was no flavor at all! By the time I got to the second taco, it was soggy.
The rice had no flavor. The beans just tasted weird.
We will not be going here again. Should have gone to Ixtapa in Edmonds like we normally do. The food is goo there!
If you don't try it you never now!!!!. If you are up for something very good. try Mazatlan Restaurant, get one of my recommendations Borrego, If you like lamb this is a favorite. But going to the classic Carne Azada is a must to have here, no doubts. Or go to the Arroz con Pollo my favorite. Or if you want to go for the edge ask for the chef Carlos and get Chicken Tacos Al Carbon Kenmore Style you will love it!!!!!.
Save yourself the hassle, and go to Todo Mexico!.
Well... can Canyons come back? Please??
We waited a few weeks after opening in hopes of giving them time to work out the bugs of a new establishment, especially since I tend to be very critical. I think I should have given them more time. Like, eternity.
Upon walking in, the old Canyons general atmosphere is there, but with a more 'Mexico' feel, with bullfight photos, and some kind of weird Spanish Techno music playing. Ok, I can block that out.
The staff was immediately friendly, and we got our table in the bar, where we were immediately greeted and presented with some VERY tasty salsa and very fresh chips (the best part of the evening) and our drink order. Once we got our drinks, the honeymoon ended.
Although we had menus, it took the bottom of our drink and several gestures to get anyone to actually take our food order, and at that point, we felt we inconvenienced him in that need. Lo siento senior! I ordered a more Mexi-merican dish (combo with Taco, Tostada and enchilada), while my wife ordered the Pollo Ranchero, which (and this is important) comes with guacamole.
My wife equated her Pollo Ranchero to a 'piece of flat old tire'. Flavorless and tough. For me, my combo barely compared to Taco Time. Actually, I'd much prefer Taco Time over what I got. All of it lacking flavor and zest, even for a 'basic' American-ized Mexican restaurant.
We finished, and waited for our bill. And waited. And then we waited some more. Finally, someone came around to check on us, and we asked for to-go boxes (which actually ended up in the compost bin). When he returned with the boxes, the man actually solicited us for his painting business! Yes, you can get a Dos Equis, a crappy meal AND get your house painted all in one stop! Woo hoo! Yeah, no thank you.
So, we were still waiting for our bill, ready to depart and pick up some Rolaids, when we finally lost patience and tracked down our waiter for our bill. The bill had an additional $3.25 added for guacamole! Oh, that's because we had to ASK for it after our meal came because it WASN'T on my wife's plate, yet the menu states it comes with it. And pointing this out to our waiter and asking for it to be removed was FAR more an inconvenience than actually taking our order! Again, sorry for being a customer in need of fair service. I didn't mean to inconvenience you.
All this fine joy and excitement was a mere $60 for two people.
I think next time I have a crappy taco craving, I'll think outside the bun and save myself $50.
Great Tacos and Tequila!. I went to the Grand Opening in Mount Lake Terrace on Saturday night, October 2nd and had a great time - muy bien! This is not your Canyons....Mazatlan MLT is an upscale Mexican restaurant with authentic Mexican cooking, flavors, and atmosphere. I went with a large party and we had fun. The place was packed, but the service was still remarkably excellent. I had chicken taquitos as appetizer, and some Tequila Reposado - that's the Tequila straight from Jaliso which went down very smooth....stay thirsty my friend!
The Food was amazing!!!!.
We went to the Restaurant and the food was amazing, service was outstanding.
again the food was AMAZING!!!!
