I would like to support local businesses when ever I can, but one of the taco I had here was horrible. I got 3 tacos 1. Two Good... (4.5/) - which was really delicious. The crunch, the sauce everything was good. 2. Quesabirria (4/5) Nice flavor but a tad bitdry but good. 3. The Big Katuna (2/5) - This was recommended by an employee. The fish on this taco was spoiled. I could notfinish my bite. They should have checked before serving it to the customers. I also got the street corn, which was ok. The placewas decent and had a nice decor. But my Togo order took more than half hour for these 3 tacos. They really need to improve onthe food they serve. Read more

Worst experience of my life. The service was unspeakable. It took 40 minutes to even get chips and salsa to our table. I had to... ask three times for a napkin and it arrived after we were done eating chips & salsa. When the food came, we were left withoutsilverware. We asked for silverware and never got it. I ended up going up to the bar and asking the bartender for silverware. Wefinally started to eat and literally spit our food out. This place gives white people the reputation of not seasoning food.Chicken on fajitas should not taste like it was only seasoned with salt and pepper. The bell peppers weren’t sautéed. Myhusband is active duty military and literally eats the nastiest food when he’s deployed and couldn’t finish his meal either.I got up several times throughout our time there and not only couldn’t find our waitress, no workers were on the floor at all-they were in the kitchen (besides the bartender at the bar). When our waitress FINALLY came to our table, I asked for the checkand addressed our concerns. She did not issue an apology at all. She was wearing all black and had a long pony tail. Shewasn’t wearing a name tag (no workers were) and never introduced herself from the beginning so not sure her name. Thisrestaurant seemed to be run by a toddler. No organization, no memorization of what customers needed, and seemed focused onclosing when we got there at 6 pm. We paid full price for our meal when we literally had a bite. We ran out after paying anddrove to a restaurant 15 minutes away to eat a real meal. Our wedding anniversary and first date night without kids was a BUST. Read more

Decided to stop here for lunch since I was passing through Peoria. There was a long wait to even be greeted and seated. To the... point that a couple arrived 15 minutes before me and went next door instead. Cayenne had a nice decor and background music thatwasn't obnoxious. There's a nice variety of tacos to choose from. During my meal I found out that there were only 2 guys for theentire front of the restaurant (making drinks, taking orders, serving, cleaning tables) on a Saturday. I'm thankful for theservice, but hopefully it's a more responsive place on normal nights. Read more
