Average food, good setup

The food here was average Tex-mex, not too pricey but definitely not what I'd call 'cheap'. Drinks were well priced at $7 for a classic margarita and around the same for a quality beer. The location is a little odd, I came specifically for a band otherwise I probably wouldn't have driven an hour... read more

Saw Dana Fuchs here in early March 2015. We didn't have reservations so we arrived before doors opened to get a set at the bar. We were 6th people to enter - and there were only 4 barstools in the entire place! We ended up standing for 5 hours, ate at the bar standing up. Food was awful although hubby... More

Ok another Nite out with the DIVAS I stumbled onto this place on line. Tickets are purchased on line with a small fee or U could go to there box office but call first there only open when they have bands after 4:pm. The country music came on & they were unbelievable we all danced & I really don't care... More

well, maybe not... but if you want to come out for a DSO show locally here it is. Really nice sized little bar. Perfect layout really. I can't speak to the food because I wouldn't think to eat in a place like this. Nice selection of beer. Really close to the George Washington Bridge. I shot right over here from... More

Food was acceptable, drinks reasonably priced and as a live music venue it cant be beat. Reserve a table to guarantee a seat.

I go for the music. Saw Coco Montoya last week. He was great, as he is always. Saw Albert Castiglia last nite in the city. Mexicali , you have to get him to come here. He was great, your Blues people will love him.

I went to Mexicali last night to see a great little band Cabinet. The venue is set up perfectly for rising little bands and they have a great staff. The show was awesome. The food was average and the drinks were alittle pricey. I ordered the sizzling fajita and the steak was cooked fine but the rice was bland and... More

Don't go here for good food or service. Go here for music, if you are following a certain group and want to hear them. The place is spacious and you can see the stage from wherever you sit or stand in the place. The bathrooms are clean. That's the good news. The bad news: this place is SORELY understaffed. we...

I'm not much of a Mexican food eater, but menu gave options for mild or spicy. Everyone in our party of 4 raved about their delicious dinners.
