Friday night at 7PM and the place was empty. That should have told us something. I have had better Mexican at the Hy Vee deli. The food was very expensive, spicy, and greasy. Our small kids sodas were $2.25. The staff was friendly. We won't go back. There are three other Mexican restaurants within three miles of here that we will eat at instead. Too bad because the Hills restaurant was good in it's day.

Food was absolutely terrible and their menu was uninspired. The environment and location aren't the best either. I would not come back here ever again unless somebody paid me. Azul Tequila is a 100x better choice for mexican food in North Liberty.

I had the most unbelievable experience here...not in a good way. After ordering a dish with no crab meat, my food came back chock full of imitation crab meat following a full hour of waiting, which was ok because I was enjoying my company :) However, I could not wait another hour for food as my guest had almost finished eating. The waiter graciously apologized. As my guest finished up, I stepped out to get cash for the tip. When I returned and settled in my seat, to my surprise, the manager rushed over and exclaimed, "Pay your bill and get out or we will call the police, we don't want your business anymore!" What?!?!?!Huh?!? This came completely out of the blue. <br /> <br /> But what happened next absolutely floored me even more. After questioning the angered man, he recognized his foolishness, grabbed a chair, sat down, and said, among other things," I sorry, I don't know how to say this. I thought you were going to try not to pay the bill because you are black." The waiter had already informed him that he made a mistake before he even approached us! The angry man then tried to blame it on the waiter, claiming that it's hard for him to communicate and issues come up a lot. I suggested if this is a recurring problem, perhaps he should have a training session for a day and have the waiter write down the order and reaffirm it with the customer rather than reporting off of memory. Oh yeah, and that he shouldn't make assumptions about anybody just because of how they look. Don't discriminate Sir! Basic stuff. The angry man goes on, "I can tell you are different than the others, the way you talk." He also victimized himself, claiming that he acted like that because people "think low of Mexicans". Well I didn't! And I still dont. I let him know he is the FIRST Mexican that has ever disrespected us, and the first time we've ever experienced disrespect like that in Iowa, regardless of color. After that free Dr. Phil session and an absolute push to pay our bill (though he tried to "make it free," there was no way we were leaving without paying our bill), we left still in shock at what happened. Needless to say, I wont be returning. I will stick with Azul's, where the mood and food is great, the staff don't blatantly discriminate, and the bill always get paid :) .

We stumbled across this place one night looking to have Chinese buffet but picked wrong night. I had always liked the one in hills so we went in. I could not finish my chimichanga platter because of quality. It reminded me of one of those mexican TV dinners only I can finnish those.

Every employee in the restuarant seemed afraid of the old lady manager. She was yelling in spanish in the back and no one looked like they were enjoying anything. I felt sorry for the workers, The food was all prepared--nothing fresh! All canned and processed food. Even the chicken was frozen shredded. Way too expensive for the area. I asked to speak with the owner and they said they are never there. hmmm. I wasnt about to complain to the older manager she looked mean. Overall experience. Disturbing!!!!

That used to be my favorite place to go now it seems like managment doesn't care about the customers. Everyone seemed over worked and up tight. I think that manager is new...I have heard other people complaining also about this place. I dont think they are going to last long.
