We were pleasantly surprised. Busy and noisy, but to be expected on Friday night. Good service and good food! Enjoyed it!

I visited on a Thursday night (8:30pm) and it was very crowded and noisy. I sat at the bar and the service was very good. The chips and salsa were delicious. I had the La Bandera enchilada plate, which is 3 different enchiladas, sort of like a sampler. It was okay. I think I will get the enchiladas suizas next... More

My daughter and I have been going here almost every weekend for past 2 months. We love it. But, I was very disappointed when I went on National Margarita Day for $1 margaritas (since I am on a fixed income) and that is one of the reasons we do choose OTB over fast food. For prices and quality of food.... More

My first time here and it was PHENOMENAL. Went with a friend. Waitress was Cassie. Super personable and informative. I got the mango chicken salad. SO refreshing. I asked for extra corn and black beans (personal preference) and Cassie was great in getting that to me ASAP. I would come here again and ask for Cassie. Great experience.

Stopped by to see family, selection is ample. When busy the noise level can be rather loud. Corn chips & salsa are good.

The drinks are excellent and the guacamole is delicious and fresh. I recommend this for people that enjoy somewhat of a party atmosphere. Wait staff are very nice. Only negative thing is sometimes it can get very loud and you might not be able to hear your thoughts. I would call ahead just to make sure.

Place was crowded on a Sunday night, so I decided to sit at the bar instead of waiting for a table. Service was a bit slow. It wasn't that late (8:30pm) but the bartender seemed to care more about cleaning up than serving the customers. Chips and salsa were good. Salsa was mildly spicy. The enchiladas suizas were very good... More

This place was packed so we had a little bit of a wait but we were staying right nearby so we weren't in a rush - and it was a Friday night so a wait was to be expected. Our server was very good. The food was good and there was only one mistake but our server noticed it immediately... More

Went for lunch on a Friday. Good atmosphere, good service, good food. Had the fish taco and chicken enchilada. Taco was very good, enchilada was good. Chips & salsa were awesome. The chips tasted homemade, and the salsa had a good bite to it. Would recommend.

We stopped here because it was next door to our hotel. The staff was especially good--just the right amount of attention and they came with refills (chips/salsa and iced tea) before we even asked. That was really nice. I had the mini-taco plate, which was surprisingly good! My wife had enchiladas and was really happy with them. There are a... More
