Considering there are only 2 "Mexican" restaurants on island, sometimes this has to do. The food is okay, but it is a last resort to tex mex cravings. My first visit 3 years ago was a disaster when the nachos they served for 10 CI included exactly 8 round tortilla chips each individually topped with a little bit of cheese,... More

...but if you have to have Tex-Mex, then give it a go. We tried 5 entrees for lunch and the only thing that stood out was the Ceviche - it was tasty! The fried ice-cream was mediocre. The service was extremely slow and just flat out unfriendly. It seemed to be a burden for our server to have to wait... More

We chose to wait for a table in the... More

Mexican food is by definition not hard to make. I lived in AZ for 8 years so I know of which I speak. The food here was no better than you'd make at home. The service from our waitress was TERRIBLE. She obviously has had no training in customer service or the food service industry in general. I sent my... More

Stopped in here after work to enjoy some half price happy hour margaritas. Great service, delicious food and drinks. Large margarita menu! Steps away from Seven Mile Beach, south end. Eat outdoor patio, restaurant or lounge. Very fair prices!
