I could not believe the horrible service here. I sat at the bar by myself since I'm on a business trip, first of all nobody would acknowledge I was there, the chic was too busy with all the guys at the bar instead. Then I finally get to order a margarita, it was really good, I'll give em that. She... More

We stop here often when visiting the cape. They make great margharita's, especially the toasted coconut rimmed one. YUM! The portions are pretty big and the food is good, not sure i'd go as far to say great. I think it's pretty standard Mexican food. The free chips and salsa is great, the salsa is really good and seems freshly... More

I enjoy Tex-mex cuisine. The atmosphere is fun. The service, attentive. The food, good, and decent size portions. The margaritas, good (the large is WAY too large, though!) The value, decent. I would patronize it again.

We had stopped going to this place years ago when we discovered the four different meals ordered by our party all tasted exactly the same. It enjoys a great following with a certain crowd mostly because of the price level. Beer and drinks are fine. Staff is friendly. I went with some friends a few days ago and ordered your... More

Every trip to Hyannis includes a trip to Sam Diego's. It is always the same! The food is great and the portions big enough to satisfy anyone's appetite. We always start with the chicken quesadilla, I have the chicken fajitas, Bobby had a massive combo plate. The service is always good and this trip our server was particularly friendly without...

We were coming on cape late Sunday night and this was the only non fast food place open. The pork enchilada had a wonderful green sauce with a pleasant slow spiciness. The chicken enchilada had a nice red sauce. The rice and beans were tasty. One of us had a full rack of ribs, a corn muffin, sweet potato fries,... More

Great food. Always consistent. Best fried rice cream around! Have never been able to find fried rice cream that even comes close to theirs! It's a must to get some while you're there!
