My son and I had lunch at Tortilla Joe's in the main dining room. This was during a very hot day in August . . . and also, after a crowded morning in Disneyland. So the air conditioning and quiet atmosphere of the restaurant was quite welcoming! Our server was extremely attentive, bringing us water almost immediately as well as filling our drink order within minutes. For appetizers, we shared the beef flautas. These were actually very good -- not too salty or spicy. The guacamole was fine . . . it seemed a bit "watery" to me somehow, but I'm not sure why. I've had better, thicker guacamole in other places! But it was fine. I think the flautas would have made a great lunch item on their own -- they were filling and good-sized (ie., not finger food.)

For lunch, I had the Mahi Mahi fish tacos and my son ordered the chicken enchiladas. I know this is a Patina Group restaurant, and normally we love their restaurants in the Los Angeles area -- all of them! But the Tortilla Joe's food was disappointing. The fish tacos were uninspired and very salty. There wasn't a lot of fish in them either! My son said the enchiladas were "just okay." The accompanying rice was nearly tasteless. I know he sampled the beans, but he didn't eat much of them.

We were offered dessert, but because we were so full, and it was so hot outside -- we didn't order anything.

Overall, it was nice to sit back, relax and cool off in the restaurant. We were not rushed in any way. The restaurant was not crowded --- another plus. But the food was average. It was not exceptional or special in any way. The total with tip came to $52. We each had ordered drinks, too -- a soft drink for him, an iced tea for me. I'd left a 20% tip, simply because the service was truly good and I thought our waitress deserved the extra amount. The appetizer plates were cleared quickly, the main courses brought within a few minutes of the our finishing the appetizers, the drinks refilled. I was impressed with the service.

We've been to Tortilla Joe's three times now -- mainly because we all love Mexican food so much. But honestly, I don't think I will go back again. It was mediocre, "good" food -- but certainly not worth the amount of money that we paid for it. I was disappointed.
