The place with the interior and the pirate theme is quite cool, but the food needs to be updated with fresher ingredients. My friend hade a steak and it was very dry and small. My enchilada was just ok. Nothing special about the food unfortunately and far away from authentic mexican food. Prices are average and the portions medium-sized compared... More

Well, I expected more. Very good mark because of the location and decor. I was there with a friend on a monday afternoon, everything was empty and we still waited for the food for too long... Food itself was ok, but really nothing special. Rice was overcooked and in enchiladas you have more tortillas than filling. Like I said, it... More

Nothing we had was something you would want to eat again, generally it was lacking in flavor which shouldn't happen with mexican food. Have to give props to the staff, who were very friendly and nice.

Great food and fun loving staff. Amazing tex-mex comfort food. Make sure you try hard and soft domestic liquor, just ask the waiter for recommendation. Expect some wild fun later in the evening, especially on weekend nights.
