Long Waits

The cantina is aging and maybe not gracefully. While the food is good, the wait staff seems to be scarce. We were seated in the back bar area-a long way from the kitchen and front door. We thought that we had been forgotten. Soon other folks were brought into the area. However,, the appearance was... read more

While the outside of this establishment may not look that inviting, you should be pleasantly surprised while inside. Great breakfast (bewware of the large pancakes) and a diverse menu. Atmosphere looked inviting for later in the day drinks and snacks.

Some of the reviews scared me about this place but there are not many places to eat in this area which was near our campground . Our waitress Rachael was a doll! She took very good care of us ! My friend said her tamale was the best she ever had. My taco and tostado were excellent . Our husbands... More

We visited here after a rafting trip and this was the most dismal service I've had in the state. The people don't seem to care about taking care of refills or even making sure their menu items come out right. Complete waste of money!!!

You could tell that this is a local favorite. Pretty good Mexican food and the margaritas were great. We enjoyed it.

We stopped for lunch on a Monday, waited 45 minutes for the waitress to tell us our food was "just being grilled and sliced". Another 10 minutes to reach the table. Part of the order had obviously been waiting some time, was dried out and cold. Watery margarita, ho-hum fajita. Won't be back.

Like the place a lot, friendly staff and we always visit when we are camping out near Buena Vista. We go for Sunday morning breakfast and by Saturday night our chops are watering over the delicious chicken fried steak we are going to have in the morning. What? No more chicken fried steak, we were a party of 6 and... More

This was a nice little restaurant and bar combination. We really enjoyed the collection of antiques that were displayed on the floor, walls, and even the ceiling. The menu was a bit pricey for the food offered. My fiancé ordered the chimichanga and I had the grande burrito. Both were average and their green chili (which was supposed to be... More

Stopped in for dinner thought it looked good. Place was empty for a Saturday night. Doors were left open, we were swatting mosquitoes while trying to eat. They were out of salsa,at a Mexican place. They also had an offensive comment on their menu, locals get10percent offwith valid ID, so i guess outsiders aren't welcome. Do not eat here!
