Great Muchacca!

We had a great Chimi Muchacca appetizer. Service was friendly and fast. We went on a Tuesday and it was literally deserted. I would recommend for some rock n roll Mexican fare.

Great food, great drinks, good video, live bands, Sammy's Beach Bar Red Head Rum (as well as the regular) available from the bar, and we didn't even need to walk outside from our room at Harrah's to get there. While it may not be the Cabo Wabo in Cabo San Lucas, it's a good outpost.

The Cabo Wabo Cantina has always been a favorite place t relax and enjoy. This trip the service was just terrible. Took a long for any service, the food was cold, the server we had not all was non committal to doing a good job. We will not be choosing this as our favorite place of entertainment ever again!

I never thought you could ruin mexican food but clearly you can. This place is a disaster. the chips are god-awful (how do you ruin chips?) and the rest of the food was unsatisfactory. My wife ordered the fish tacos that were undercooked, I ordered a chicken burrito that was very bland and mushy. We ordered Queso as an appetizer... More

Stop in for dinner on a sunday night. Casino dead as was this place. Cheerful waitress and prompt service. Very limited draft beer options. Manager visited a bit and was attentive to our needs. Hard working guy that aims to please. Our first visit. Was hoping for a lively crowd but just a chicken foot video playing on a loop.... More

Well, this was the only place that had some action this time of year. Bands were good every night. The drinks were good..and just relaxed and enjoyed the people watching.

We ate in the bar/dance floor area. You can also sit at tables and booths in another section of the restaurant. We were there early, so it was uncharacteristically quiet. No loud music, or loud people. We had Hearts of Romaine salads with grilled chicken. They were attractively presented. The dressing had a Mexican name that I can't recall, but... More

This is not a place for adults over the age of 25. It was a club by the time we got there not a cool Sammy Hagar restaurant.

My friend and I dropped by for lunch so I can't really comment on the late night atmosphere, and to be fair we really only had appetizers. The server was very friendly and helpful, better than typical. We left a good tip. ;) The food was okay, nothing memorable.
