I only go to El Basis to for my Mexican cuisine. My only question is which one?!?! I have favorites at both. I have never had issues with service. I have never had a bad meal.

The food at the restaurant is good but that's the only thing I can say positive. The service is horrible. After sitting at the restaurant with friends for 3 HOURS I received ONE tea refill. When the food arrived for some friends it was NOT what they had ordered. One person in our group received their food after everyone else... More

Traditional Mexican Soup is the lame name they gave it. It's not pasole, or albondigas. It's a great chicken broth with a bit of saffron, chicken, tomatoes, rice and avocado. It may be the best thing on the menu. The guac was bad. The salsa could double as the sauce in the seafood cocktail *meh*. The house margarita on the... More

After a week on the road, it was good to get back to home turf, so we celebrated at our most convenient Mexican restaurant. We were surprised that it wasn't busy on a Friday evening, but we were early at around 6pm. We considered eating outside since it has cooled off but didn't want to get smoked out - not... More

It took an hour to get a glass of water. They never came to see how things were. They never came back to see if we needed anything. The food was good but the service was unprofessional and inattentive. That cancels everything else out. Treat every customer as if you value them. The staff were all over the place. They... More

We had enchiladas and the sauce was the best we have had. It was more like a gravy rather than the usual red sauce. The refried beans were perfect. The salsa was very tasty - not too hot like it is so often. The waiter was extremely friendly and efficient.
