Yola's has been on Metropolitan so
long, I can't remember a time when it wasn't slinging tortas, tacos and spicy corn. They've expanded to a small diner space next door, with the takeout space on the left.
Might have gotten great reviews in the past but NOT now.
A friend of mine suggested Yola's for dinner one night. I ordered a chorizo burrito from the takeout section of the restaurant. I expected beautiful greasy bits of meat flavored with red chile, garlic and onions (what I'm used to in Arizona). What I got was a glorified hot dog; large, gray, roughly chopped, tasteless pieces of meat. Ew!
I also ordered the flan expecting creamy, decadent milk/egg custard with a thin caramel topping. What I got was hard, tasteless, Vanilla Jello with an equally tasteless brown liquid at the bottom of the container. Literally hard Vanilla Jello! Really? Really? This place is an abomination of Mexican food.
I was appalled. This place is gross and I will never, ever, ever return.
