Berryhill was good, many many years ago. Back in the 90's, they rolled the tamales by hand, and made the tacos fresh and crunchy. Now, it sucks! It's nothing but overpriced fast food of negligible quality, and poor preparation. Most of the people making the food can barely speak English, and everything has become less fresh, too spiced, and soggy. The fish is small, hidden in a big taco with lots of cabbage, and drowned in sauce. In the old days, the fish was fried to order, not re-fried to order, and it was big and juicy. It's tasteless now, as of course all old frozen fish is. Bad chips too! Very bad chips! Heavy and not crisp. They sit for hours under that heat lamp. The whole thing is just awful. It's slop, and a sloppy public slops it up mindlessly.
