Just an average Mexican place, not somewhere I would return to or recommend. Service was slow. Chips and salsa was really good. Nacho were different, they had potatoes.

Just had lunch at Ay Caramba and were very disappointed. This place used to serve really good food, but it seems those days are gone. Food is not hot, tastes bland and/or greasy. We arrived at 11:30, pre-lunch rush, and there were maybe 4 other tables with patrons. The service was alright, if a bit slow given the number of... More
