There are better choices for Mexican food on the island. Just ask anyone in the service industry and they will point you out

I went to this place every Tuesday for 6 months whilst I was on the island. Cheap as chips, absolutely wonderful food, all the nachos you can eat. Potato tacos for the vegetarians are a real treat, especially when drowned in Cholula. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough. Get yourself down there on a Tuesday, get a nice cold PBR,... More

I read the not so great reviews prior but we decided to check this place out anyways. Unfortunately I have to agree with other reviewers, the food was not that great (very very bland).

Friendly service with good food. You can eat outside and enjoy a cocktail. Located on a side street, so not noisy but no view. Not a bad place to grab lunch.

Food was very average - my husband and I had two different types of burritos. Basic seasoning - not bad - not good. Service was ok, though I asked for water twice and did not receive any. Ambiance was ok.

So we chose this place because it looked pretty interesting, old saloon style and lots of memorabilia around look at. We stand at the entrance way waiting to be greeted, nothing, we proceed to the bar and inquire about seating kept being told someone will be with you-nothing! I guess they didn't need our business. To be fair we tried... More

food was average, don't think it agreed with me. I suspect there is better Mexican food on the island.

Food was pretty good but the 3 people sitting outside the window smoking were not. We could smell them through the window and the waitress didn't seem to care. Definitely won't be coming back here.
