Yelp: “…The quesadillas are unique – deep fried …”

Urban Spoon: Outside doesn’t look fancy. But inside is clean…

    This restaurant should have no stars at all. The food is terrible and the whole place reeks of mildew. We went there because of those Yelp/UrbanSpoon reviews — which could only have been written by a paid promoter of this place. Stay away!!

    I love this place. I live on Greenwood, and have gone to all the Mexican places in Greenwood and Phinney numerous times in the last 5 years. I go to Gorditos for take out and Chupacabra when I want to be hip and cool and get tipsy. And now I am thrilled to have AVENTURA in the hood. I go there for my sit-down Mexican food served with free chips and great salsa by a friendly owner. It’s perfect to take family and friends. They are super accommodating and nice about special dietary requests my family has. Yep, it’s empty often when I walk in, but I think it’s because the outside looks crappy and it’s next to a ugly mini-mart. It’s large, and CLEAN and I’ve never smelled mildew. Not sure what NoFoolin’ was trying to accomplish. Take my word for it and the reviews on Yelp/Urban spoon that this place is absolutely worth getting past the crappy looking outside. Please, try it out, I will be really bummed if they don’t make it in our ‘hood. (Stacy in Greenwood, no foolin’)

    What NoFoolin’ was trying to accomplish: helping neighbors save their money and time. I’m glad you had a better experience, but mine was so bad that I felt I should warn others. Yes, the staff was nice. That’s not enough.
