La Gardenia recently remodeled and changed their name. They used to be our favorite. Until our last visit. The quality of the food went down hill fast. The main restaurant area is now a passage to the store, ruined the atmosphere. We will not go back to this place. And now they charge for chips and salsa.

Ordered three soft tacos with pulled pork. Took bite into first one and didn't know what it was inside of soft shell. Opened it up and it was a large piece of boiled pig skin, nothing else. Told the waitress and her reply was 'that's how we eat it around here', then left. She didn't come back to our table at all. Had to go to front to get our check and pay. Third time here and never very good. Would never go back or recommend.

The portions were huge, food very tasty and margaritas hot the spot. I will definitely be back here.

Hands down best Mexican food we've ever had, consistently. True Mexican style guacamole with pico-de-gallo mixed in. Fajita burrito highly recommended. Especially the chicken which has a smoky flavor. One thing I appreciate, since I drink a lot with my meals, is the size of the glasses. Twice the size of most places. Which is also good because our only, minor, complaint is the service can be a bit slow if you're in the "sunroom". DO NOT let that last line keep you from coming hear. I can't imagine you being disappointed.
