Food was very bland and defiantly not worth the 14.00 for two "wanna be" enchiladas. They were actually more like burritos and there was no flavor. The chicken was dry and tasteless and the sauce was very weak and light. The service was poor as well. The server smelled like dirty socks, which can be quite displeasing to the apatite.... More

The regular sized Margarita on the rocks is about 24 ounces - surprised me how strong it was the first time...in a good way ;) Their chile rellenos are available baked: chicken, cheese, beef or veggies; order is 2 and they're usually large enough to take one home for the next day's lunch. Nothing wrong with refried beans and rice.... More

The food was good and the service was good. All in all a great meal. Just a little expensive. Our server was very courteous and helpful. Quick and efficient.

My spouse ordered the crab/lobster nachos, and I ordered the skirt steak tacos which were more like steak medallions. Food was great. Ordered the Cadillac margaritas and they were pretty potent. During our next cruise to FLL, I recommend staying at the nearby Embassy Suites and the restaurant is in walking distance.

If you have never tried Carlos $ Pepe's Tuna Dip - the time has come. I picked this up as an appetizer for an event because I love it so much. Everyone else who tried it loved it, as well. The fresh, warm chips are the perfect compliment to the mildly spicy dip. Delish!

There are many great things about this place and it is hard to get excited about salsa; however this place makes some darn good salsa, like holy cow!

Went here last week after a recommendation from the Embassy Suites next door. Had the blackened mahi and some guacamole. The seasoning may have been hiding that the fish was bad. Within 2 hours, started getting sick. Besides the fact that this was overpriced for the portion, and the service was slow (was sitting at the bar). Called the next... More

One of the WORST dining experiences in Fort Lauderdale. Greeter was a child - who had NO charisma - in fact it took her 3 minutes to even notice us. Server had NO idea about menu, ignored minor food complaints and to be honest was again just a kid who had no interest in what he was doing. Food was... More

My husband wanted some Mexican food and we were in Ft. Lauderdale. I saw the light bulb go off when he remembered one of his old favorites was just blocks away. For me, I was thrilled to find out they had a Chimmie with Ground Beef! Delicious. Will be back again!

I have been going to this restaurant for twenty five years. I was visiting Fort Lauderdale recently. After arriving at the airport we always go there. It had been a couple of years. I was totally disappointed with the service, it was almost as if we were intruding, we sat at the bar , drinks were very slow to come... More
