not sure not sure what happened to this place, is used to be good. Steak fajitas were inedible and chicken tacos tasteless. I can't even tell you how bad the refried beans were. Told the kitchen and they said it was that they were too salty. That was the least of the problems. Our waitress was lovely and I felt... More

This was the first restaurant sign we saw when driving into our hotel from the airport and decided to give it a try. Bad Idea. They ask if you would like cheese, extra tortillas, side of beans, etc. with every order. The don't mention the ridiculous prices of the extras. A side of cold beans (from a can) $5, 1... More

We got into San Juan late in the day and we wanted something close by, but not too loud as we were winding down. Half a block from the Mariott Hotel/Casino, we found this TexMex restaurant beside the burger joint on the side street. Jared was our waiter and he's the friendliest guy out of Arkansas. He can sure chat... More

The hostess could not have been more helpful--we learned about Mofongo, Medalli\a, y Magana. The salsa was intriguing and the Mofongo con Camerones y Pesca was simply delightful. A great place in Condado.

I love Tex mex so followed the signs to eat at this place. The service was fine, but there was only 3 people in there. I ordered tostadas. It came out looking like a salad. Underneath everything I found the tostada with hot pastey beans on it, so of course it was soggy. There was no dressing and the meat... More

We met some friends here on a Friday night for dinner and drinks. Horrible. Bad food, bad drinks, bad live music. The service was fine, but everything else was awful. We do not recommend this place.

Close to the hotel, acceptable food lackluster service, good price. Had carnitas, lots of fat, nearly imperceptible amount of cheese. Flavor of the pork, beans and salsa was very good though.

We came to this place for lunch. We ordered the chicken fajitas and the chicken tostada. The chips and salsa they brought out was good, because unlike most restaurants, their salsa was spicy! Food was steaming hot and tasted good, especially with their regular frozen margarita. I do recommend NOT getting the mango margarita as it tasted like canned mango... More

Our first day in San Juan, we went out for an early dinner. Mona's was close to our hotel and we felt like having some Tex-Mex. There was virtually nobody else there. The waiter was friendly and nice, but I don't think that he knew what he was doing. We got the chicken fajitas for two. Our biggest complaint was... More
