While traveling in the area, the Super 8 desk agent suggested a neat little Mexican restaurant in the area - Las Trancas. This restaurant was a gem. Food was tasty, served hot, and fairly priced. The service could have been a little more attentative. All in all, a great meal and the facility was decorated nicely and very clean!

Stopped for dinner with family after a LONG flight. Decided on Mexican food. Restaurant was very clean. Our waitress was very nice and very attentive to our needs. Our food was very hot and tasty. If you find yourself hankering for a Southwest fare, I recommend Las Trancas!

We tried the place and had good food and good service but the setting seemed a bit odd? We would go back again and do recommend trying the place

Bad service to loyal customers including, being denied drink refills, spiking salsa with hot sauce, waiting over 15 minutes for waiter to take our order, being laughed at and intentionally ignored. Manager was rude and made light of the situation. Final straw was when manager pointed his finger and blamed the situation on us. We have always been very nice... More

Highly recommended by the motel next door. Met a couple that always stays at the Econolodge when they are in the area just to be close to Las Trancas - they often come in from Texas and said this is so much better than anything close to them. Waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and offered a few suggestions.... More

The place was very crowded, but the staff and service were up to the challenge. The menu is extensive with plenty of options. For the uninitiated there was helpful tips on the menu and the staff provided additional help. There were floor managers available to keep service moving. The food arrived in a timely manner, warm and tasty. The sangria... More

We were visiting friends this weekend and they suggested this place. I had the best ever Taco salad. Perfect home made taco shells. The chicken taco salad was perfectly seasoned and very fresh. My son enjoyed his dinner and felt it was the best ever as well. Nice atmosphere with room for larger groups,having a big family table was nice.

I got grande burrito a california-style burrito, it was very good. The greater who met us was very friendly and show us to a booth but we prefer a table and that was no problem to him so he set us at a table. After ordering in a few minutes our food was there.

Just stopped for lunch while traveling down I-77.... What a pleasant surprise waiting at Las Trancas! Their warm tortilla chips and fresh salsa were amazing. All our dishes were wonderful, served quickly and piping hot (except the fried ice cream of course)! Jennifer was on top of everything and an amazing hostess. My luncheon margaritas were large and very tasty.... More
