    Changing their menu, losing a customer

    I'm not sure what's going on with them, but the two dishes I always ordered chicken wrap and enchilidas are now completely off the menu. How can you be a tex-mex restaurant without either of the most standard dishes?? Makes no sense to me. In any case, I'm moving on.

    Trying to get better?

    I have had very similar experiences to those mentioned below, but I went recently and ordered from here last night and am wondering if they are trying to improve. The last time we ate in, the server was very attentive and helpful, something which had never happened there before. Last night, our food arrived in a timely manner and the order was correct! Let me tell you, this is a feat considering it's the first time they have gotten our order right ever (that is not an exagerration, I promise). Perhaps they are taking the reviews to heart and are trying to make some changes. Though the atmosphere is still terrible- don't expect to be able to talk to your eating companions if you sit inside!

    yuck

    i went for brunch today & it was not good. i had breakfast burrito & it was so peppery... tasted like they dumped the whole pepper bottle on the potatoes & eggs. my friend had huevos rancheros that looked really disgusting & tasted like one too. i've gone to blockheads before & enjoyed their burritos but brunch was a bust. will not go back to blockheads.

    Place is going down in flames

    I was a very loyal customer but the quality of the food is hit or miss and my last five orders have been completely wrong. I kept giving them the benefit of the doubt but they simply cannot get an order right. They are completely rude when you call them back to discuss the order being wrong and offer little to rectify the situation. Not only is the food order wrong but we have to microwave the food to warm it up and the food is never develivered faster than an hour. We waited 1 hour and 45 minutes on our last order. Another loyal customer lost!

    bland and obnoxious

    Food is bland at best, absolutely nothing authentic or original about it. If you like an atmosphere of loud, unattractive frat boy types and chubby trashy girls, then this is your place. Expect to shout to have a conversation.

    Horrible

    Today I ordered take out and I couldn't have been more dissatisfied. My order was wrong. Substitutions were made to my order without my approval, and their excuse was that when you order food for delivery you do not get the same menu options as if you were dining in. WHAT? Last I checked that was false advertising. Delivery took forever, and I couldn't have been more dissatisfied when the order finally arrived. My lunch special came with fries and not salad as I had specified. The chicken salad did not come in a taco shell as advertised, and they told me when I called to complain that you can only get a taco shell if you dine in. Never will I order from this place or patronize them again. To top it off, I was charged the wrong bill. The staff at Blockheads are rude and unwilling to help their customers. I strongly caution those who are considering ordering from here!

    Done with it

    We've been going to this place for a couple of years and its been on a steady downward spiral over the past few months. If you call in to place an order they're rude when they answer and delivery takes forever. If you go there to pick it up, despite them telling you a set wait time, you stand around like a jackass waiting for your food. The last time we went to pick food it took 20 minutes of us waiting to get the food. And heaven forbid you should actually go there to dine. The last time we went there (and by "last time" I mean not only the most recent time, but also the last time I ever want to step foot in there) our waiter was so high, or incompetent or just generally out of it that our orders got messed up and 5 of us got food while the 6th had to wait. I am officially boycotting.
