My wife & I ate here one evening whilst in Hollywood. It is cheap & cheerful but the food, service, atmosphere & value for money were outstanding! If you like Mexican, eat here!

My wife and I went at Thursday 4pm on May 8th. The place was empty. Music has cranked up (good music). We had to go in back and find anyone. We placed our order and asked if she could turn down music. We had to yell to place order and forget about talking. I got my gringo cheese burger. Good... More

2 for 1 Happy hour Twice a day and not bad food; tex-mex that is and the Sunday funday bottomless mimosas and bloodymary's are hard to beat. Incredibly inexpensive! Cheap and easy everything I like in a beer/tex-mex/shot place but it's is "cozy" in there but the service is always good!

Nice patio, nice vibe, slow service. The food was cheap, but you get what you pay for. The burritos are painfully small, and you don't get much else. Come here to drink, not to eat.

So this is basically a sports bar that serves mexican food. Went here randomly and immediately regretted it, our server was new so our food took forever. There was a 2 for 1 drink special on yet the menu doesn't list the prices of any of the drinks so ended up paying much more than expected..the burrito was dry with... More

Found this place not far my hotel on Highland ave. It was pretty busy for a Tuesday night. Was greeted well by a hot brunette server. It was happy hour. Got... More
