Yeah had lunch there hardley ate anything!!!! For kids chicken fingers is frozen box dinasors! I paid extra for somthing she could of got at store. The green chili was so nasty it was like a jel or pasty! What a waste of money! not even worth one star!!!
I'm not sure what any of you other people are bragging about this place for, it's a complete DIVE. It's a Dive-Diner at best! I had a group of 10 people here for a b-day party and I was disappointed that I had chosen this place. They were not generous with the chips & salsa, we constantly had to ask for them each & everytime a part of our party arrived. They had table tents listing all the beers, however they were out of most of them and then they had to run next door to the liquor store to buy a bottle of wine & get more beer.
While we had our dinner, every hoodlum showed up and grubbed out at the diner-counter with their skate boards in tow. I never saw any money exchanged the whole time, I swear the YOUNG waitress & cook told their friends to come there and grub out for free. Now about the food... The salsa was the best thing about this place by far. They were out of the Hamburger Steak, so some people had to re-review the menu and order again. The food was very average at best.
The service was nice, but flighty. Not sure if she knew she was 'working' or not. I do not recommend this place and the food is maybe avereage for mexican food. Save your money.. You can get better elsewehere.
As an artist and struggeling musician I get by. I was producing stained glass projects when I returned to the Wheat Ridge/Arvada area many years ago. I made the stained glass that hangs in the front window of Ophelia's, they gave me a few free meals. I survived and still do my art and music. The staff is great and so is the food. They really helped me out when I was in need and I will never forget their kindness! If you go, look at the stained glass and remember we are a community working together.
I am surprised that this restaurant is getting such good reviews. I went because of the reviews and expected it to be an above average establishment. The ambiance was good, the service was prompt, but I have to admit, I didn't care for the taste of their food. Both my wife and I got different combo platters so that we could sample different items. Their 'hot' green chili is medium at best, and the seasonings they use make for a very unique taste, but unconventional. We boxed the remainder of our items, but even allowing for a bad day on our part, they still tasted bad when we reheated them a few days later. I do give credit to their magaritas, quite tasty, and their chips and salsa. The chips were fresh and heated, and the salsa had a bite. But unfortunately, they charge for everything, chips/salsa are not free, if you dont have enough tortillas with your meal, each additional one is an additional charge. Plus, their overall prices are a little on the high side. Although I love to support mom and pop operations, I'd rather go around the corner to Mi Tiera where the overall experience is much superior.
We had the worst meal we have ever had here. They must have changed owners because it sure has changed. The food was blah and the waitress was rude. She brought the kids plates and the plates were so hot it was terrible!!!. The plates must be ran through a heated oven before they are served. We are very dissapointed and will never go back. So sorry to say because it used to be a favorite place of ours to eat.
Ophelia's is the best Mexican Restaurant in Arvada!! They have the best Rellanos, green chili, and of course burritos of all kinds!!! I would totally recomment Ophelia's. They close at 8 every night so you kinda have to keep that in mind when planning to go!!
