The young white boy behind the bar tonight 8/8/11 in my 45 hrs. Is the rudest waiter I have ever encountered he made a mistake on the order and blamed on us then when he returned his mistake he told us we would now have to deal with the manager and igOred us completely like we weren't even in his section, I think his feminine side was hurt his feelings!!!!

I almost totally gave up on this restaurant because I ordered the chimichanga the first time. It was awful. I'm glad I went back and ordered carnitas. it was excellent. I love this place.

I took two out of towners to your restaurant thurs evening 8:30, they requested Asteca but i bragged you guys up and drove across river. You were out of mole a house special. One order was delivered incorrect and we had to wait for the next one. Over all the food didn't seem as fresh as usual. The chimichanga wasn't any way crispy as your menu claims.
The waitress never return to the table to ask.
Chairs were being put on the table before we got our meal.
We apoke to the manager who was watching tv about the service and he apollgized. Yet sent the same waitress to deliver our change very awkard. So maybe thurs evening isn't such a good time to go.

La Flama is my favorite place to eat in the Quad Cities. Not only is the food exceptional, the wait staff is extremely friendly and accomodating. The treat my family like they were a part of their family. Highly recommended!!!!!!!!

Our family loves this great place. The food is fresh, fast, and fantastic ~ I LOVE the Mole Pablanos Enchiladas! We have always had a very positive experience here!

La Flama has the best guacamole in the QCA and the spicy chicken fajitas are fabulous! As the saying goes, "Been there, done that, do it again!"

It had the typical mexican offering but well prepared and nicely presented. The guacamole was amazing, with lots of cilantro and flavor.

Never have had to wait long. Food always good; the shrimp cocktail is a favorite with some of our family.

Service really depends on who your server is, but La Flama is always a safe and fun bet for dinner.

Really nice little place with friendly service. I love the dish that is simply called "Pork Meat" on the menu. It's huge chunks of pork marinated in orange juice and cooked with an orange-chipotle sauce. It's hot ! It's my favorite Mexican dish in the QCs.

La Flama is the best mexican joint in the Quad Cities! The guacamole is AMAZING and I love the chicken enchiladas - especially the ones with the green chile sauce on top.

The owners are dedicated to exceptional customer service and make the place very welcoming and comfortable. I eat there at least once every week and rarely have to wait for a table. Check it out!

Not authentic as others. The rice and beans have no flavor which tells me that it pre-made possibly from a can!! Friendly service.

La Flama is another authentic Mexican restaurant. It's great food, great service, and looks beautiful inside. They have great drink specials pretty often. The only downside is that it is pretty small, which means you are waiting a while for a table. I suggest the Hot Pork, I think that's what it's called.

Passable "mexican" cusine, makes me long for my fav spots in the mission SF. Order the 'rita but make sure to get a shot on the side to chase away the oberwhelming taste of Rose's lime...
