Absolutely Fantastic!! – I am 26 years old & I have been eating at Los Corrals my whole life. This is no exaggeration. My parents have been eating there since the mid-70's when they were first dating, & we have continued to eat there ever since. I am a creature of habit. I always get the Chicken Burrito Spread (all chicken, with lettuce) & a Tostada w/ extra cheese. My husband is a little less predictible. Huevos Rancheros, Enchilada Rancheros, Nana special, #1 combo, he'll try anything. :) This is the restaruant that I compare all other Mexican restaraunts to. I hate Mexican places that pour nacho cheese over your burritos, or add a side of sour cream to everything. The chips are great, always hot (too hot sometimes) & super fresh & the salsa doesn't taste like ice cold ketchup (like too many other mexican-ish restaraunts). This is hands down the best place to eat in all of Kansas City. 10 STARS!! A+++ Customer for life (was a customer before life too!) Enjoy & try not to over eat! :)
Los Corrals is the best place on this God forsaken earth. – Look, before I tried Los Corrals, I was on the verge of committing suicide. Then my friends caught wind of my despair and came over to stop me. They took me out for a nice Chicken Burrito Spread, (no beans)... hold the lettuce. Los Corrals saved my life.
In all seriousness, I love this place, you see the same friendly faces, and the chips are sent from heaven. They are always super quick, the food is consistently great, and I will continue to take my friends. Its the best food in KC, I don't care about authenticity, its just good. If you're a cheap as$, take a date, they will think you are cool because you took them somewhere besides the F!@#$%G Cheesecake Factory... and you'll be sitting pretty because you'll pay like 17 bucks for some queso and two burrito spreads. You're an idiot if you don't go here, And to the choads below who threw out a bad review. Shut up, you're retarded and you were probably a pr!ck, that's why you got sh!tty service. Karma M!@#$%^&*(*S
And another thing, the bathrooms here, definantly dont smell like sh@&t (but dont quote me on that one) not to mention the paintings are off the chain, i mean seriously...they play all my favorite mexican jams including...
1. put yourr beef in the tacoo
2. i lost my pep pep
3. chalupa chalupa..ketttleee.
soo there ya have it.. pack up the kids,smoke a mini bowl, and grab some los corrals...
Awesome Food, relaxed atmosphere – I haven't eaten there in a few year but was searching the web for them and wanted to post. They have the best mexican food in KC. Prices are reasonable as hell and the food is fantastic. When they are busy, they are busy, this is not Taco Bell, so it might take awhile. The first time I ate there was a Friday night and of course they were packed. When we were seated the server was prompt, but we were not ready to order given the killer menu selections so we asked for some time. The server was honest and told us that given how busy they were, it might take him 20 mins to get back to us BUT, see that guy, he'll keep you full of beer, and see that guy, he'll make sure you have plenty of chips and salsa and I'll send them right over. As it worked out we needed the time anyway, they kept us full of beer and chips as promised and brought out the best food you could imagine, and the food came out in a resonable time once we got our order put in. If you want a relaxed back time and excellent food in a non-stuffy atmosphere, definately go.
Regarding the comment by Piedra79 - "First off...I don't understand how any self respecting Mexican restaurant can misspell its title." The veracity of this comment should be considered; the family that owns the place is named Corrals......I'm guessing they know how to spell their own name. How did I find this out, just did a little research into the place is all? I want to make it clear, I don't know the people, I have no interest in the place or anything; I just don't like seeing good hard working people and/or businesses berated for no valid reason. If you don't like the food, cool - your opinion, but the name calling (no pun intended) or personal attacks indicate a lack of maturity and fairness.
Editorial Review by Christy Buena – Family-friendly restaurant serves traditional Mexican cuisine, fajitas, burritos and offers a selection of frozen margaritas.
Fast service, great food!!! – I definitely recommend Los Corrals!!!! Prompt service, hot food including the chips and salsa and
definitely a laidback atmosphere!!! Also, very very reasonable pricing!! :-)
The BEST! – Oh my...this is by far my MOST favorite place to eat. My Family has been going here for atleast 30 years! I now live almost 2 Hours away and will make a KC day just to eat here! I always order a Pork Burrito Spread and Hard Taco. But, I could even just have a meal of their chips and salsa! I can not stand going to a "Authentic" place that serve chips that are not even hot, not to mention go to some of those so called chain places that claim to have good mexican food!
Los Corrals is a MUST....their prices are GREAT too!
I don't understand how people think that this is authentic.. – I went to this place because it is really close to where I live. It was marginal at best as far as Mexican food goes. First off...I don't understand how any self respecting Mexican restaurant can misspell its title. It should be spelled Los Corrales. Other than that is just seemed to be a typical tex-mex, cheese drenched, greasy spoon. It shouldn't ever be in the top ten.
Overated!!! – I tried this place because it received high reviews. I could not have been more dissapointed! I ordered 2 enchiladas that were served ice cold, the cheese was not even melted. My wife ordered huevos rancheros that came out with a pork chili sauce (not stated on the menu). My wife does not eat pork so I sent the dish back, the waitress returned the same dish back and just scraped the pork off the eggs. We shared our concern with managment to hope this would not happen to future customers, but it was no use we were brushed of as a if we did not matter. There are too many other mexican places that appreciate my business. With service like this, it will not be long until their loyal customers turn.
The absolute BEST – I can remember coming to Los Corales with my family since I was a small child - the food is always fresh and hot and FAST. Pork Burrito Spread with Cheese is amazing and their hard shell taco's are outstanding! I've never ordered anything I didn't like. I no longer live in KC but when I'm home, its a must have before leaving!
Los Corrals is THE best place to go for authentic mexican food. My family has been eating there for over 30 years. We have tried just about every mexican restaurant in KC, and this is far superior to any of them. Their staff is great and tho you may have to wait a bit to get seated on the weekends, it is worth it. The sauce is hot as are the chips when you get them. The taste is wonderful. This place gets a A+++ from me. Always!
