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.

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.

We really expected more. Food was ok, but atmosphere is more like a cave than a party. Find someplace else if you're looking for fun with your food.

The food was average here but the service was terrific. Good place to go if you're in a hurry or need something quick.

Located underground at the border between California and Nevada. This Mexican restaurant is happening most weekends. Usually a host waiting to get you seated. A large dance floor is passed on the way to a table. Wait staff and porters are usually quick to get menus, drink orders, chips salsa going. Salsa offered is mild or hot. Chips are good.... More
