It's worth a try if you are desperate for Tex-Mex

I go there every few months to see if anything has improved. I'm a local, indigenous Caymanian, in fact. The staff is very culturally oriented, each treats its own... the rest of my observations will remain private. The food is 2 out of 5 (tex- mex) FYI: This is a spin off of Lone Star, which WAS... read more

This is a fabulous Tex-mex restaurant, across the parking lot from Divers World, with great prices and great food. The best Enchiladas I HAVE EVER HAD! It is a little place with few staff but the drinks were good and the food and service OUTSTANDING. Prices were so reasonable, a gem in paradise.

We accidentally stumbled on the gem! Great food and service. Right next to the Marriott. Very friendly atmosphere and wonderful food! Excellent place for a quick lunch or dinner! We had tacos and nachos. Very good salsa and warm chips. The seasoning on the chips was very unique! Very reasonable on the wallet. We will be back before the end... More

After reading the reviews we were a little hesitant to try this restaurant out. However, the family craved Mexican food so off we went. The food was very good and the service was pretty much island time. The staff were very friendly and the quesadillas were great. Don't know why so many reviews were negative Had a great time

We come to this place each year we are visiting GC. It's in a strip mall near G'Town. Nothing fancy but always done well. We've never had service problems mentioned by other reviewers. Our kids love it and make us go every year.

I really liked the food...it was fresh and tasty! The wait for the food was long...but I took that as perhaps there was more food prep involved (good thing). The overall service was poor and got worse once a large group came in...we were all but ignored at that point. I would go for the food....and concede on the service.

The place is small and dark and the wait staff is a little slow but we were pleased overall. We shared an appetizer made for one and it was perfect. For under $20 we got queso, quesadillas, nachos, and taquitas. Drinks were a little expensive but like I said, it was nice to have a little bit of Texas in... More

Typical mexican food with margaritas. The atmosphere was good and felt like a mexican restaurant in the US. Service was a bit slow but we were also not in a hurry.
