Via Delosantos Review

The family-owned restaurant looks a little rough around the edges outside, but it's what's inside that counts—an accommodating staff, an enormous and authentic Mexican menu, and one of the best-tasting and best-priced house margaritas in town. Entrées are ample, and include more than just tired combinations of beef, beans, and cheese. Try the fajitas calabacitas with a yellow- and green-squash succotash; or the delicious chicken delosantos, a cheesy chicken breast and tortilla concoction. Expect to wait on weekends, either at the bar or outside, but the experience will be worth it.

    Not worth the trip! You're just a dollar sign to them!

    Don't waste your money going to Via Delosantos. I used to live up the street from there & my husband & I wanted to make it a local hangout. In the five times we had eaten there, we had one experience where the service was good. All other times, the server went through the motions, often devoid of interest. The food was always average, just enough to pay to get out of the house and hang there. Today just brought my opinion way down. After getting done telling my sister that the food is OK & that we almost always have horrible service, I gave it one more chance. The server barely looked us in the eye (cultural thing maybe?), brought out the wrong side (she ordered rice, got beans), had the nerve to ask "Are you allergic to beans or something?" "Uhhh, no, I ordered rice." (Why is that relevant?) never asked if we needed anything. & THERE WERE SEVEN FLIES ON THE WINDOW NEXT TO US THAT KEPT HOVERING OVER OUR FOOD. I know it's Mexican food, but we felt like we were in Mexico! NEVER AGAIN!
