The margaritas were too sweet and expensive. The food was very average. Good atmosphere with a reasonable price. I probably wouldn't return.

My wife and I attended the Lone Star Rally in November 2014 and ate here one night. It is a very large place and we choose to eat outside on the patio. Seating was immediate and the service speedy and efficient. We shared an order of beef fajita nachos as that plate along with the chips and salsa was plenty... More

I ate summer here while on business. The restaurant has a great location on the central part of the seawall. Though there were a lot of staff standing around, no one seemed particularly motivated to help me find a table in the bar area. My table was dirty, and never cleaned, nor did I have any silverware (had to scavenge... More

We ate hear last year and I wasn't overly impressed with their Mexican food we decided to give it a try and I am glad we did. I had the stuffed shrimp and it was fantastic. My husband had Mexican food and the only thing he enjoyed was the queso on his tortilla. So seafood it is for me. It... More

We had dinner here. Not much good to say except service was friendly and quick. My draft beer was flat, the requested replacement was also flat. Cocktail was watery. My food (flautas) was probably microwaved frozen, had almost no meat in it. This place is atmospheric, good to take kids to, but definitely not a good Mexican food experience.

I highly recommend this restaurant. Mine and DH's food was very good. We had the #5 Chimichanga plate: TENDER beef fajita and cheese wrapped in a tortilla, fried, then covered with their delicious queso. The vegetable rice that accompanied the meal was tasty. It was a gorgeous day so we dined outside on the patio and enjoyed the sun and... More

We decided to sit outside to have late lunch/early dinner. My husband got The Big Juan and I ordered Stuffed Avoacado.....just really good food, good price. Salsa served with the chips are great.

Ended up here on a whim, since we noticed their parking was packed with cars. Relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant, shabby chic mexican style interior. We had beef nachos and chicken fajitas, all very tasty. Our server was new, but he was very attentive and did a great job! Would definitely recommend going here if in the area and looking... More
