Very delicious food, friendly people there and very large meals. I think it is very good. I loved the nachos and the cranberry drink. Much better than smelly tofu.

Based on the reviews, I had high expectations for this restaurant. I'm happy to review that the food superseded all expectations. I had the delicious nachos, the small size could easily fill 2 people up. The guac is superb as the owner flies in Haas avocados from Mexico. A generous portion of salsa, sour cream, and salsa each accompanied the... More

As the reviews all say, the owner is cool and quirky the staff are friendly and eager to help. The food is a funky TexMex style and tasty. They have a decent beer selection as well. Suits anyone who wants a taste of Tex-Mex with an American vibe.

The food here was amazing and as much as I like to eat foreign local food when im travelling, we couldn't go past the hospitality of Jason and Maggie at this restaurant.l Jason helped us with a tour guide for the following day and chatted to us every night we ate there. Great food and service. Highly recommend.

I was delighted to find Mexican food in Hualien, just like I find back home in USA. The chimichanga was perfect, served with familiar sides. It felt like a corner taco shop, but the quality of the food was more like a sit-down restaurant.
