Mexican Food, are you KIDDING me! – I gave it a single star because the salsa was pretty good. Usually when the salsa's good, so is the food. Boy, was I wrong. I ordered a taco, chile relleno, rice and beans. I was disappointed when I saw that the taco shell was from a box. The beans were from a can, problably Old El Paso. But the most disgusting item was the chile relleno. Chili rellenos are stuffed chiles with cheese, dipped in batter and fried. This was not a chili relleno. This was mush with ground beef and a teenie tiny piece of chili. All the food was topped off with a disgusting sauce. This food was not edible. We think that most people are too drunk off the large margaritas to know what mexican food tastes like. I've had better meals at Taco Bell.What a compete disappointment.We cannot stop talking about how bad the food was. This was the absolute worse food I ever experienced in my life.DO NOT GO HERE!!!!!!
The Worst Mexican Restaurant I've Ever Been To!!! – There are so many negatives about this restaurant that I simply don't know where to begin. The only thing good about this restaurant was the lower that usual prices but after the experience I had, it is easy to understand why. For starters, no one (NO ONE) ever greeted us or EVER asked if we were okay. No hello, no goodbye, no thank you, no come again......NOTHING. Then, the table that we sat at was dirty and the floor under us was filled with rice. I had to take a wet one and wipe my table down before sitting. Then, the language barrier came in to play. I had questions about certain dishes but the non English speaking waiter that we had did not understand me and I equally didn't understand him. So, i just ordered something else that I knew about instead. Then, when my dish came out, I realized that my knife and fork where both extremely dirty. I sat there for about 10 minutes (without eating) waiting for our waiter to past by (not come to our table) before I yelled over to him to get his attention and inform him about the silverware. At that point, before I could finish describing my problem, he threw a new set of silverware on my table and kept walking. Then, went to the bathroom and things took only got worse! The bathroom reeked of a cheap Pine Sol and after I nauseously entered the stall, a roach climbed up my leg and scared the day lights out of me! I immediately left and asked my friend to pay for me because I take one more minute of that wretched place! I will never eat there again, even if it was free!
BEST PLACE TO EAT! – Definitely one of my favorite places to eat. Love going here. Enjoy the atmospere also!
I don't think this first review is real either – I love Eric San Jose's. I have been there many, many times. I have been there with very large parties and just me and my husband. I have been there for lunch and dinner on both the weekdays and weekends. Never once have I experienced poor service. Some of the servers do not have very strong English, but all of them do know English, and I've never had difficulty in them understanding what I was saying. My husband actually likes Eric San Jose's so much that it is his favorite restaurant in Columbia at that price range.
As far as the first review of this restaurant goes, I have serious doubts that it is real. My first tip-off was the repeated misspelling of pubic. I think that any adult would know the correct spelling and pronunciation of this word.
Montezuma's revenge? Don't believe it. – In response to the previous review: Eric doesn't even have a beard. All of the wait staff there speaks English. I have only experienced poor service one time, and my party was subsequently taken care of by the manager. We were offered a discount, and part of our meal was free. The food there is delicious. The restaurant is clean and has a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for great Mexican food.
Montezuma's Revenge on Steriods – Mexican Food! It?s like chocolate is to some people. I must say though that finding ?public? hair has never been my thing. I visited Eric?s San Jose one Friday night with my family; wife daughter and five year old son. When my wife pulled something long out of her teeth that looked pretty ?public? we asked for the manager. Of course we had to go through a few hundred people until we got to speak with someone that spoke English, but we managed. Mr. Eric himself approaches our table, as he strokes his very nicely trimmed bread. ?senor what seems to be the problemo?. ?Mr. Eric this is not good?. ?my wife has a Public hair in her teeth the food taste like poo and it took me twenty minutes to speak with someone that can speak English?.
Okay! So someone wants zero peew-bs in their food, speak to someone that speaks the same language as they do and not have to eat poo! Mr. Eric San ?Juan? says to me. ?mira senor me no espeek el eengles?
Please people don?t let this man poo on you!
