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.

Good take on Mexican food

The menu is very good a lot of choice but sadly is just a version of Mexican food. When asked if I wanted my meal spicy I said yes but it was only very slightly spiced. I had a steak on another occasion and it was cooked as I had ordered and was a good cut of meat. The staff... read more

We initially sat close to a loud group, and noticing that the waitress arranged another table for us. Food tasted awesome and not expensive. Location is good as well. Can only recommend.

Pretty dull, soulless place that promised a lot more. Staff disengaged, food quite bland, lacking atmosphere. We didn't even get offered to roll the dice at the end of the meal which is supposed to be their 'quirk'. And it's expensive for what you get.

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

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.

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
