When we entered the restaurant, the first thing we noticed was the overwhelming smell of sewage! Luckily, we requested a table in the far back of the restaurant away from the entrance. The dishes we were served on were dirty, the food was very plain, and our server was only seen twice during our visit. Overall the place was unclean.... More

I stopped in for a quick lunch before I had an afternoon dentist appointment. I ordered the lunch fajitas and a tequila to calm my nerves about going to the dentist. I waited and waited and finally told the waitress I had to be somewhere, so could I please just get my food as take out? She apologized, quickly prepared... More

First time to eat here. Food was served quickly by a nice server and was delicious. Had lunch fajitas which were really good and yummy carne asada. Must try the queso (it was recommended to us), it is great! Definitely will be back.

We eat here every time we are in Stillwater. Food was fresh and hot. Service was great. We prefer to eat in the bar area. Service seems to be a little better back there.

My husband and I go to this restaurant frequently. The food is delicious, especially the salsa and queso. The service is great and the staff is very friendly.

Our food was cold and the service was slow. Not a place I want to go back to. This was my second visit and I'm still not impressed.

I ate at this restaurant twice in August 2014. On both occasions, the food was not good. I gave the restaurant a second try hoping that if I ordered something else, it would be better. Although there were several of us at dinner, none of us ordered anything that was very good. I love Mexican food usually and we were... More

We enjoy eating here. They have a full menu and complete bar. There wait staff is very good and attentive. If you arrive on a busy night the wait isn't to bad they can seat many and turnover is relatively quick. I think you would really enjoy and put it on your list of favorites.

The food here is nowhere near the quality of the decor and atmosphere. Last time my wife or I had dined there it was called "Bobo's". That's why we were disappointed this visit. Most of the food/sauces seemed like they were out of a can/jar. The enchiladas didn't look like the cook cared about making good food. Great building, poor... More
