I absolutely love seafood, that's why resaca is one of my favorite restaurants. I love their chavelas and variety of seafood dishes. In my opinion, this place is a bit pricey. But every time I go the food is on point!
The one thing I don't like about this place us that their service is so slow. It takes a long time to get your food and even the check. The waitress didn't come to our table to check on us. I had to track her down. I feel they're understaffed. I only saw one waitress when I went.
With that being said, I already know what to expect when I go. I don't get upset if they take long because that is pretty much expected. Good thing their food is great, otherwise I wouldn't go as much.
Just finished crossing the border and was starving. I turned to YELP for some help and La Resaca pops up and I decided to give it a shot. This is a hidden gem located in a small shopping center, great food and service. They're seafood is on point the green aguachiles arnethe bomb!!!
Oh man! I came on a Monday around 12noon and the waitress was off the chain beautiful and she had a Sir Mix a lot azz!!!! From that point on I didn't care what the food was like because all my attention was on her.
Okay so on to the food I came with a small group and we all ordered those beer tomato things. We got some chips and salsa but the salsa was fire department hot!!!! I had to add a lot of lime then it was okay to eat. Most of us ordered the shrimp cocktail and I got the large which took me about 30mins to finish. We also got a order of chips and guac which was very good.
The waitress was nice and on top of things for my group. My friends were saying how they updated the restaurant and that it looks a lot better.
Came here to celebrate my dad's birthday and I was pleasantly surprised by the food. I'm not a huge seafood fan, let a lone a shrimp fan, but I think this place has converted me. I had the Hawaiian ceviche and was blown away. The shrimp was fresh and the flavors were all there; it was sweet from the pineapple and savory from the shrimp and seasonings. There was no wait at around 1:30 PM on a Sunday. The staff was friendly and our table was well attended to. Would definitely be coming back!
I came here yesterday and had a campechana, fish taco, and a shrimp taco. I also had 3 Dos XX, the total was around $38. Well worth it. The waitress/bartender was friendly, helpful, and even joked bit. Along with that, the service was fast. There's a good variety of foods that also includes carne asada, in case you don't want seafood.
I decided to go back today and had the same good service. I was pleased with everything. Today I had another campechana, and instead of the tacos, I tried the Hawaiian Ceviche, served in a fresh, carved out pineapple with pineapple pieces on the side. Beyond delicious, I was quite impressed. I also tried their michelada, and that too was very tasty. My total again was around $38.
I definitely recommend this place. If I lived closer to Calexico, I would be a regular here.
