Viva la Mexico. The restaurant caters for a very varied clientele. Cacti, sombreros and colourful murals form part of the décor. The menu offers an enormous range of dishes. Once you have decided what you are going to eat, you will find that the service is fast. The waiting staff are young and friendly. Dishes include classics such as tortilla chips, enchiladas and burritos. For the big boys there is a lot of meat to choose from and a great selection of steak. Why not order a tequila to send you on your way? Or perhaps you fancy something sweet? In that case why not sit out under the white sunshades and enjoy a creamy cocktail? There is also a selection of wine.

Great effort and style for Tex Mex in Dresden. Friendly staff and good eats. Good size portions and left more than satisfied. Just don't order the tap water.

Strange place - good service, good beers, but food - maximum acceptable. It is difficult to do untasty spicy wings, but they did.

Good food. Good price. Not sure the location since we were wandering and found this place. Not too far from city center though. Wait staff was nice and speak at least German and English.

While a visit to Dresden we chose to try this restaurant. Prices were affordable and the food was tasty. There were many options to chose from, even vegetarian dishes. The menu was in English, although the staff's English was poor and they had difficulties understanding us. The decorations were authentic and seemed like they invested in it. My wife had... More

I have eaten many times here but today I went with my wife and we ordered as usual. The server asked if we wanted spicy...we ordered as always. Mine was supposed to be mild and my wife's spicy. I think the server made a joke of it and told the cook to make it super spicy. Needless to say, I... More

What were we thinking of when we decided to have dinner at this restaurant? Perhaps we were just nostalgic for the wonderful Tex Mex fare we had in the eateries of the Dallas-Fort Worth region of Texas – where the frozen margaritas were delightfully heady and the food fresh and scrumptious! Well, the frozen margarita we ordered at this place... More

Service can be quite slow especially once you have ordered your drinks but it's not an issue! I had the little cowboy it was fantastic with a bit of everything on it as I couldn't decide what to eat!
